Nanny Bloomberg Administration Wants Popcorn, Milkshakes Regulated

06.13.12 09:01 PM

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is continuing his attack on food and freedom. The Mayor who proposed a ban on large drinks might turn his attention to popcorn and milkshakes.

While meeting to discuss the implementation of the drink ban, some board members suggested banning other food items.

“The popcorn isn’t a whole lot better than the soda,” said Bruce Vladeck, a member of the board.

“There are certainly milkshakes and milk-coffee beverages that have monstrous amounts of calories,” added Dr. Joel Forman, another board member.

Bloomberg is continuing efforts to ban large sugary drinks even though citizens of New York are not in favor of the drink ban. A poll was taken, and the proposal was shot down 51-46 percent.

The New York City Restaurant Association also opposes the initiative. If it passes, they will consider legal action.

The city will have a six-week public comment period before further action is taken.
