I Always Thought Dr. Pepper was a Coke Product

Apparently, it’s not.

Anyways, here’s who’s pushing sugary water.  Three companies.  Check out this amazingly detailed look at the beverage industry.  And then drink more water.


While we’re on the subject, here’s a BBQ sauce recipe for the Southerners out there who can’t get enough of their Coca-Cola.

And just to round out the post, here’s an interesting site that shows us how many sugar cubes are in a Coke (it’s not good).

Pop tarts too … man, nothing is sacred anymore.

Of course, this being the moogaz, we return to politics.  Keep an eye out in September for the House to take up Michelle Obama’s Hunger Free Kids Act.  The Senate quickly passed it before the August recess.  The House will probably look to make it meatier, adding to the amount spent per meal by 6 cents when what’s really needed is $1-2.  But either way, a bill passed that gives the Agricultural Department the ability to get rid of vending machines from schools and adds to the quality of  30 million meals a day while taking aim at the obesity of our kids is a good bill in my book.  The Senate and the House reconvene on September 13th.
