Goodbye, Big Soda: New York Becomes First City to Ban Large-Sized Soft Drinks

Alice Park notes that New York City’s unique ban on large sugared beverages goes into effect this week.

The ban would prevent retailers who sell prepared food from also dispensing sugared beverages, including sodas and sweetened tea, in cups or containers larger than 16 oz. That’s smaller than your standard single-serve soda (typically 20 oz.), which you’ll no longer find at fast-food restaurants or cafeterias.
