NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Bravo Starbucks!
That’s the sentiment caffeine lovers at the Starbucks at Penn Station expressed to 1010 WINS’ reporter Gary Baumgarten after being told the chain is not worried about Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s ban on large sugary drinks next week.
“I like it. I don’t think it’s right that he could change what they’re selling. It’s not capitalistic, that’s socialist,” one man said.
But it’s not that the coffee giant is necessarily taking a stand against anything, there is just some confusion over the impending ban on sugary drinks larger than 16 ounces, which is set to take effect on March 12.
