Big Apple, small soda?
If New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has his way, that's what's coming to restaurants, movie theaters and street vendors in the five boroughs.
The mayor plans to eliminate the sale of sugary drinks larger than 16 fluid ounces in each of those places in an "ambitious" effort to combat obesity, The New York Times reported last week.
Exemptions, such as for diet drinks and sales in supermarkets, are expected to be part of the new law, eyed for spring 2013, according to the Times.
It would mark the first such ban in the country, but follows the mayor's successful efforts to ban trans fats and curb public smoking.
The New York City Beverage Association is certainly not thrilled.
