RELATED: The Bad Deal isn’t just about daily deals anymore.
New York City’s BIG SODA BAN, set to go into effect next year, is supposed to help fight obesity. So we commend the week-old Barclays Center, the home of the Nets, for complying with the law well in advance, capping the sizes of sugary drinks at 16 ounces. But here’s the problem: Soda is now cheaper than water at the new stadium. So guests now have an economic incentive to buy the less healthy option. Yeah, we’re calling this one a BAD DEAL.
