Monday is the last day New Yorkers will be able to buy super-sized sugary drinks in New York City. The cola crackdown goes into effect on Tuesday. The new regulation puts a 16-ounce limit on sugary drinks sold at city restaurants, movie theaters, sports venues and street carts and applies to both bottled and fountain drinks.The ban but does not include grocery or convenience stores that don’t serve prepared food. It also does not apply to diet soda, other calorie-free drinks or anything that has at least 50 percent milk or milk substitute. Starbucks announced it plans to continue offering 20 ounce venti-sized and 30 ounce trenta drinks because of the milk content. Like Dunkin’ Donuts, customers will also be able to add their own sugar.
