NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) â€" Every single menu in New York City could soon be getting a major overhaul if Mayor Michael Bloomberg has his way.
The man behind calorie counts is set to announce a new public health initiative to battle obesity, taking aim at super-sized sugary drinks.
In other words, it may soon be time to say goodbye to those Big Gulps, those Slurpees or even Venti at Starbucks, CBS 2â€™s Derricke Dennis reported.
â€śThatâ€™s okay,â€ť one person said.
No itâ€™s not, according to Mayor Bloomberg, who is set to propose a ban on sugary drinks over 16 ounces everywhere, all across the city.
â€śI disagree with it, because itâ€™s the right to choose. If you want to drink a Slurpee, you should be allowed to drink a Slurpee,â€ť said Jamie Sawyer, a tourist from Oklahoma.
NOTE: We can choose to murder our unborn baby but we are not able to choose to, or not to, drink a tasty drink. And we let this happen. Shame on us.
