While Defending Proposed Ban On Super-Sized Sugary Drinks, Bloomberg Celebrates National Donut Day
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Super-sized sugary drinks bad, donuts good.
That seems to be the message being sent by Mayor Michael Bloomberg as he continues to defend his proposal to ban large, sugar laden drinks while celebrating National Donut Day on Friday.
The event featured a signed Proclamation Letter by the mayor honoring the 75th annual National Donut Day at Madison Square Park where the largest box of Entenmann’s Donuts ever created was unveiled.
The proposed ban puts a 16-ounce limit on sugary drinks sold at city restaurants, movie theaters, sports venues and street carts, including bottles and fountain drinks. On Friday, Bloomberg was challenged about celebrating National Donut Day days after revealing his soda proposal.
