Its a sad state of affairs when you can buy alcohol for less than soft drinks in a supermarket.
It's Jamie Oliver's fault

Glad his Business is in debt
Jamie was forged from the pits of hell too torture us humans, he ruined School dinners and now Drinks

Remind me what the rate of tax is on this? Zero exempt, I assume?

No Coke haven't changed their recipe so it will be taxed, almost all the other drinks companies have changed the sugar to a sweetener to avoid the tax.
Well done to Coke, they already produce diet, life and zero coke which won't be subject to tax so keeping the original is great.
24 cans@ £7 = approx 30p per can
sugar tax 28p (?)per litre = approx 10 p per can
new pack 20 cans @ £14.95 = approx 75 p per can
What a rip-off

That’s the rrp, it will be on promotion at some stage, I’m guessing £9
I blame Jamie Oliver and the Honey Monster........

Hahaha
Already happening in Norway where they pop over the border in to Sweden to stock up on sweets. The Swedes are building sweet shops conveniently located near the border.
Just had a bad thought, will packs of cider double in price too???? Plenty of sugar in a magners

Now I've had a bit of a day, but this pricing really doesn't make sense to me
I thought the sugar tax was 24p per litre for beverages with 8g of sugar per 100ml, and an 18p per litre for drinks with 5g of sugar per 100ml.
Coca-Cola Classic, contains 10.6g of sugar per 100ml (according to their own website).
So surely this is only a £1.90 increase on a 24 can pack?

100% correct.
I just cba writing all that.
£15 for 20 cans of coke?36 cans on farmfoods for £9.no brainer
Fizzy drinks will still be sold in their thousands no matter what price they are. If people still pay over £7 for cigarettes then increasing the price of cola by a few pence won't reduce consumption. Either that or you will start to see people selling fizzy drinks on the black market out the back of their lorries in service stations.....lol
Looks like fake news
