A Sugar-Free Shocker: San Francisco’s Costco Soda Fountain Now Offers Diet Soda ONLY – A Change for the Famous $1.50 Hot Dog Deal

Monday, April 16th, 2018

Saw this the other day and I thought, oh there must be a new Pepsi.

But then it’s all “zero calories.” So you have a choice of two kinds of diet Pepsi now?

Or maybe this is how San Francisco’s one and only Costco (Store #144 – that’s twelve to the fighting second power if you’re thinking about writing a symbolic poem) deals with Frisco’s new soda tax?

(I should add that they also have lemonade and ice tea, and that maybe those drinks have sugar, IDK. But no sugary soda is available, nosiree. This is what one might expect to see.)

Anyway, maybe this change occured a while back and I’m only noticing now – that’s very possible.

Still it’s a shocker, to me anyway.

In this particular case,  I can’t see somebody saying, “Oh, I’ll get the diet then.” But I can see somebody buying less of the regular Pepsi.

END OF LINE.

Oh:

The soda industry has so much money and there’s just no limit.

You know, I think Coke and Pepsi can afford a soda tax on $4 bottles…

Sure looks like it.

I guess Pepsi and Coke know they’re a gonna lose on the “grocery tax” issue next month, but they just want the margin to be as low as possible?

Owner? Former owner? Current owner? Part owner?

And is this the Mi Terra Market the “No on V, Enough is Enough, Don’t Tax Our Groceries, with Major Funding by American Beverage Association California PAC” people are citing? IDK.

Anyway, perhaps it’s this mailer itself what’s “wrong?”

This one’s especially bad, even for Frisco.

Just saying.
