"Soda"? You mean "pop" right? Depends on where you live in the south it's soda. Why does it have to be posted on the machines it's already on the bottles or cans.

"Why does it have to be posted on the machines it's already on the bottles or cans".......It's a good idea to have it posted on the machine so a person knows before they buy it. Once the bottle comes out of the machine you can't put it back in.

I approve of this, unlike the New York soda ban on large drinks. I personally prefer Poweraid over soda, but that also has a high sugar content so I can see why they are doing this. However, if they spent the money they are using on advertising and new products to find a formaula for a low calerie or diet drink that tastes like the original the issues with their products would be solved. So far the only one of the diet drinks that even tastes close to the orignial is Sprite.

Can most people decipher that by the name of the beverage - Coke vs. Diet Coke? If they can't, a few numbers or a zero next to their name probably won't help much.

marcymmb - Yes, you are correct and in some parts of the south they call everything "Coke". However, this is a article in a Minnesota based newspaper/ website regarding machines being demoed in Minnesota. Therefore, it is called "Pop".

If they really wanted to help, they could stop using high fructose corn syrup, it metabolizes much much slower than sugar, and now we have to deal with GMO high fructose corn syrup. Just move back to plain pure cane sugar. Plus it tastes so much better.
