Calorie Labeling on Soft Drink Vending Machines

  • Toni Gray

    I don't see this changing peoples habits much. If you're eying up the vending machine drinks you're craving the salt, sugar and/or caffeine. If you're one of the few who says they drink regular soda "for the taste," then a diet version would be repulsive. So far calorie counts on fast food have not slowed sales. This is just another meaningless PR stunt.

    I disagree. Seeing how many calories something has frequently stops me from buying it. But then again, I'm a box-turner. I look at that stuff before I buy everything.
