A hand-picked board, in addition to deciding the fate of large sodas, is considering limiting the sale of drinks that contain milk and popcorn in movie theaters.
The nannies want to cut the size of popcorn, soda, and milk drinks such as coffee drinks, shakes and so on, which will only discourage moviegoers. If people stay home and get movies on-demand, they can eat and drink as much as they like.
I don’t know if people realize it, but theaters make most of their money off the refreshments, especially drinks. People share these large popcorns most of the time. The idea of limiting them is ludicrous.
The restaurants, theaters and stores that sell these drinks will see a dip in sales and perhaps a resulting decrease in employees.
Besides, who the hay is Bloomberg to decide what we can or cannot drink or eat? It won’t stop unless we stop it. It will go on and on until the government controls everything we eat.
