Petition Tag - soda
To the owners and managers of fast food restaurants,
I am writing this to you because I believe your choice of soda is unfair. I am a diabetic and I speak on the behalf of all diabetics in the current state. You have a variety of sodas, but how many of then are diet? There is only one that is diet and you have many diabetic customers.
For this reason I urge you to think about changing the amount of diabetic sodas to be half of the fountain. You have two sides of sodas and only two of the dispensers hold diet. You could change the way things are placed to make it possible to have half of the fountain as diet. This may be costly but the number of diabetics customers are high and even more will come to your businesses if you do this. I would certainly eat out much more if you changed this. If you do this not only people with diabetes will eat here but people on diets will appreciate this change also.
I figured that if I get peoples experiences you would more likely consider this change. So here are people’s experiences.
Laura skipper (in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) says:
People with diabetes, such as myself, are limited to diet sodas - although maybe more people should limit their sugar intake and switch to diet soda!
Unfortunately, most restaurants only carry one type of diet soda. I personally love diet Dr. Pepper, but I can never find it at a restaurant! Restaurants that want to be health-conscious and considerate of those of us with diabetes should offer a wider range of diet sodas. It would probably even attract more business if they were to do so - I know that I would be more likely to go eat at a place where I could get something other than a boring diet cola!
Jennifer Knauff (in Grantsville, Maryland) says:
My son is diabetic and has been for almost 10 years. When we go to fast food restaurants he has very little choices in diet drinks. I also think for people that are dieting and adult diabetics there should be more choice.
Matthew Knauff (in Grantsville, Maryland) says:
I am a diabetic teenager. The drinks at fast food restaurants are limited. I would like more choices especially Diet Mt. Dew.
Pepsi RAW is a sparkling drink made by PepsiCo Inc. using naturally sourced ingredients that are free from artificial flavouring, colourings, preservatives and sweeteners.
Pepsi RAW has been already marketed in the USA (As Pepsi Natural) and the UK. We feel this discriminates the rest of the world, particularly Australia and the Continental Europe. Countries like France, Germany or Spain also deserve to have access to this revolutionary product.
In 2003 the Australian Coke company, Coca-Cola Amatil, introduced Cherry Coca-Cola. A few years later they stopped making it. It is still imported from America by a company called USA Foods, for a very costly price and you can barely find it anywhere.
For too long, most of Canada has been without Cherry Coke, we Demand that it becomes a grocery store regular along with other Coca-Cola products.
Dr Pepper was introduced to the Australian market in 1997 with a short-lived TV advertising campaign and low priced 280 ml cans sold through supermarkets. Dr Pepper was subsequently sold in 1.25 litre plastic bottles alongside other major brands until 2003.
Cadbury Schweppes stated that the product did not gain acceptance by Australians, whose detractors complained that the drink tasted like "cough syrup" (a tag also given to Sarsaparilla). A report on the soft drink industry by IBIS accused Cadbury Schweppes of failing in their marketing of the brand, given its global appeal.
After withdrawing from the Australian market, Dr Pepper arrived without fanfare in New Zealand. Cans imported from the U.S. are available in some specialty stores in New Zealand and Australia.
Dr Pepper is just what the Doctor ordered! For a unique smooth taste on a hot summer's day, you can't beat a cold Dr. Pepper.
