Will the day come where your kids will need to use a fake ID to buy Coke?
No, I'm not talking about the kind sold by a guy named Escobar in an LA nightclub bathroom stall. I'm refering to the type shared by pollar bears at Christmas time that you purchase from a vending machine.
Well, if former New York Times columnist Mark Bittman has his way, there may be a whole lot more McLovins popping up at mall food courts. The food writer believes the minimum age to buy a soda should be 20 to curb consumption of the dietary WMD, though he growns that 16 would probably be an easier pitch to legislators.
In an interview with Eater, Bittman does concede that he doesn't believe this will pass. Speaking with the magazine, he says, "I don't think it would fly, no. But that doesn't mean it's not a good idea. Gun control is a good idea, too, right?"
