I don’t think sugar-anything would be a good name these days…

[UPDATE: Marisa Lagos has the other side of the story - so put them together and it starts to make sense. Everybody wants some sweet sweet free cash from Coke and Pepsi, but nobody wants to admit they want some sweet sweet free cash from Coke and Pepsi…]
I don’t really “get” this one, I don’t understand what’s going on here.
But see if you can figure things oot, eh?
“San Franciscans United For The Soda Tax - Calls on David Chiu to Stop Coordination with Big Soda Industry
WHAT: A public call to action from San Franciscans United For The Soda Tax. The coalition will draw attention to the Chiu campaign’s coordination with the big soda industry and call on David Chiu to stop accepting campaign funds in opposition to the soda tax he claims to support.
WHO: San Franciscans United for the Soda Tax: Representative from the nurses; Adrienne Suffin, former SEIU Chapter President; Laura Thomas, Co-President, Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club; Arthur Welton, San Francisco Young Democrats; Juan G. Berumen, affordable housing advocate and more
WHY: Over the course of the last month, David Chiu has coordinated with the big soda industry to steer thousands of dollars of soda industry money into his campaign. The soda industry has funded $10,000 to the Chinese American Democratic Club, $7,500 to the Black Young Democrats and $2,500 to the Asian Pacific Democratic Club. Many of David Chiu’s strongest supporters, whom he proudly lists on his website and who are doing a lot of work on his behalf – the San Francisco Building Trades Council, the plumbers and the Teamsters – are opposed to the soda tax. San Franciscans United For The Soda Tax finds this hypocrisy on behalf of David Chiu appalling and is calling on him to cease accepting any resources from the Big Soda Industry.
WHERE: In an emailed press release, San Francisco.

Word on the street, mocking these recent official Coke ads:

I don’t think that it’s the Diet Coke what causes diabetes, just saying.
Unless the artificial sweeteners somehow fool your body into thinking it’s getting sugar, uh oh. (I think the scientists are looking into it these days.)
Now myself, the more Diet Cherry Coke I drink, the more they bring me.
At least I think it’s diet, uh oh.
Costco Mexican Soda Evolution – First Came Coke, Then Came Pepsi, But Now Here Comes El Medio Litro, The KingFriday, October 26th, 2012
First came Coke, all the way from Mexico, all the way back in aught-six. (You see, they use sugar as the sweetener south of the border, you know, instead of corn syrup.)

And then came the Mexican Pepsi at the Costco:
But now comes the King of Them All, El Medio Litro, the half-litre of Mexican Coke in a bottle:
I only saw one case at Costco #144 in SoMA, just recently.
I don’t know what they go for, probably something betwixt $18-24 for 24.
Who knows what Mexican-made beverage Costco will offer next…
Man, this stuff has so much sugar in it, you can’t taste the 12% alcohol at all. At least that was the case for Purple. Here are the tasting notes for Blue:
“Combines the sweet yet smooth taste of blueberries with the tart finish of pomegranate juice to create a unique flavor that is as bright and bold as the liquid color itself.”
OK fine. A good time was had by all, I’m sure.
The Blast by Colt 45 Ladeez were having fun:
And Snoop Doggy Dog was there in spirit, if not in actuality:
We’ll just have to wait and see if it, “Works Every Time,” as Snoop Dog claims…
If your meal comes with a toy, then it could be affected by the Healthy Meal Incentive legislation that was introduced by Supervisor Eric Mar and co-sponsored by Board of Supervisors President David Chiu and Supervisor David Campos.
Here’s a summary of today’s bill:
“Supervisor Mar introduces Healthy Meal Incentive legislation, which sets nutritional standards for restaurant food that is accompanied by toys or other youth focused incentive items. This legislation is aimed at promoting healthy eating habits and to address issues related to childhood obesity. Fast food restaurants target children and youth by offering toys and other incentive items. The Healthy Meal Incentive legislation would encourage restaurants to provide healthier meal options. To provide an incentive item, meals must contain fruits and vegetables, not exceed 600 calories or 200 calories for a single food item and must not have beverages that have excessive fat or sugar.”
The kind of Happy Meal swag that would activate HMI:
And here’s the gritty nitty:
Well, there’s blowback already. They’re calling this legislation a “toy ban.”
