If someone wants a 32 oz soda they should be able to purchase it. Of its a fountain soda maybe they should have a nurtition info on the cups and the fountain by the ice. ALSO mayb MORE smaller sizes should be available at a reasonable price. Such as an eight ounce and a 12 ounce. Someplaces start ar 22 ounces unless you want a kiddie sippy cup.

yes, it is racist to stop huge whales from getting even bigger. They should have to pay double fares everywhere.

Again corporate power will override what is good for the people.

Advertising, lawyers, payoffs... that's how they operate, and they get rich by making people fat.

Corporations prove again how irresponsible they are, and truly the enemies of freedom and of the people.

it's cooler to be fat and then get a whole bunch of attention for burning it off..

Since health insurance can get extra premiums from tobacco users..they should get extra money "tax"from big gulpers... Next the pharmaceuticals will be on television hawking a big gulp patch...and instead of smokeless cigarettes...some business oriented corporation will offer sodaless liquid and put water in a nice looking container...and charge twice as much.....
