So, I hear that Bloomberg has banned big sugary soft drinks in NYC.  Does this include Starbucks monster sized coffee drinks with massive amount of sugar (syrups) and fat (whole milk and whipped cream)?  Not that I would ever drink one of these drinks, just wondering how consistent they are with this crazy policy--especially since you could always buy 2 or 3 smaller drinks.

That's a good point- some of those starbucks frappa-sugar- bombs are like 900 calories. Without dumping tons of syrup into their drinks, perhaps starbucks would be forced to actually sell a half way decent tasting cup of coffee...

Geez, I bet ya that one of those banned big sugary drinks + a cigarette = instant death.  They ought to use that combo for death row inmates instead of lethal injection.

Double standard + sarcasm is intentional.
