Please try not to hate first time contributing to this site but as a lover of coca cola I was annoyed amid the news of the sugar tax raising the prices of 500ml or in Tescos case shrinking the bottle size as far as I'm aware obtaining a 500ml bottle for £0.69 is the cheapest I've seen so thought I'd share should be stock in most savers shops

Good deal. Hopefully this sugar tax fails or other natural sweeteners are used not the nerve agents which are aspartame & acesulfame k

It will fail in its 'intended' objective, but it won't be repealed.

Just another quick cash grab.

Yes it is all information on the bottle is in English
Probably old stock, sugar tax is on manufacturers, so anything produced upto now won't have been taxed.
Sugar Tax is bunkum.
I wonder how this tax is supposed to help all the well off fat kids? Or well off fat adults for that matter.

Don't doubt the same was probably thought when punitive taxes went on tobacco. They eventually climbed to the point it was made very expensive to choose to smoke. I reckon it put a lot of people off...

Try telling tesco that-Tesco upped their prices on the day, and to the penny per ml etc. No way, it was produced on the same day as it hit the shelves-just ripping off everyone!

I have a shop and although I agree with you that products already in the system were clearly produced before the tax was implemented, the wholesale price to us has already risen inline with the new tax so we have had to increase our price immediately.

Most soft drinks have already reformulated to below 5gm per 100ml so this tax will have less effect on prices than you would think.

Lucozade, Fanta, oasis, sprite etc. Have reduced sugar content below the tax threshold.

Coke, cherry Coke and Pepsi have retained their sugar levels so you will see their price rise, or bottle size shrink. Coke is reducing its large bottles to 1.5litres for example.

It's causing problems with sandwich meal deals etc. It is a total pain but it does seem to have had the desired effect in that most drinks have reduced their sugar content
Possibly cheap for a 500ml bottle, but not the cheapest way (per 100ml or per litre whichever way you look at it) to buy coke if you’re concerned about getting the most to combat the sugar tax.

Its the energy drink prices that are most noticable in Tesco, like £1.07, £1.57 or £4.53 etc just random prices that have increased by certain percentages dependant on their sugar content. I guess unless they're the sugar free versions, all the energy drinks will be hit hard.

If the government really wanted to drastically reduce the purchases of sugary drink they wouldn't just increase it by a few pence at a time. Gradual increases just mean people absorb the cost and get used to it. A large price hike at once would be the only hope of having the claimed desire of reducing sugar intake but that wouldn't bring in the tax dollars that the government really want.

They used the exact same trick on tobacco, petrol/diesel and alcohol.

They want that money 💰
If there wasn't much sales it would mean the companies may go bankrupt or leave the UK market, they won't get money from business tax

One day Sodas/Pop may cost more than Alcohol, so people will became alcoholics.. I'm talking about the big brand stuff since you can get cheap alcohol for less than a bottle of water
