(Buckner) Today, we learned that the great city of Philadelphia has passed a tax on Soda pop. WHAT!!!! Oh it doesn’t stop there, Its also including non-100% fruit drinks, flavored water, pre-sweetened tea or coffee and non-alcoholic beverages that are intended as mixers.
reported that the tax is expected to add up to 18 cents to the cost of a 12-ounce can, $1 to a 1-liter bottle and about $2.16 to the cost of a 12-pack! Thats insane!!!
I like soda as much as the next guy, but to treat a sugary beverage like cigarettes in a tad absurd. Do you think anything like this would ever pass in Utah????
