Have you seen these new soda cans ? If you haven't be on the look out for them. My initial thought when i seen these was, wtf O_o ? Why they so small, second thought was like awwww they have 8 cans instead of the original 6, COOL !!! The third thing that came to mind was, okay ummm the can is no longer 12oz its only 7.5oz, that brought my excitement from a 10 to about like a 4. That was enough to make me think and look more into these "trendy" little soda cans to see what the influence was behind them. I came to find out that congress or someone that sits in a high position and help make some of the important decisions about how we live our day to day life is setting a new tax on companies that produce products with high sugar count in them. In response to the new tax, Coca Cola said instead of paying the tax they will serve their products in smaller portions to avoid paying this food tax, but they didnt decrease the price considering that they're only giving us 60oz vs the original 72oz that we've been buying for years. I read somewhere that it was about portion control, but my thing is why can't i just decide to pour out the extra 12oz or at the least share with a friend or something ? #portioncontrol , right ?
