How do we know it was not diet soda? I add a lot of ice to my drinks and it waters it down. I do diet coke, but in New York, a double gulp is more value for the money. Seven-eleven, best of the best!!!!!!!!!! No comparision.

This is idiotic. I use to work in high schools. Fact: A kid will skip a meal to get a larger soda. Raise the price through a tax and the kid will pass on the sandwich to afford the soda.
