SEATTLE’S ‘SODA TAX’ NEARLY DOUBLES PRICES AT COSTCO
Advertisement
A $16 Costco case of Gatorade now costs about $10 more due to Seattle’s new sugar tax (KIRO 7)
Customers are feeling the pinch of Seattle’s new Sweetened Beverage Tax. At Costco, a $15.99 case of Gatorade now costs an additional $10.34 due to the tax.

A sign alerts Costco customers to the price change and also lets them know that they can go to the company’s Tukwila or Shoreline stores to buy the product without the added charge.

The new tax went into effect on January 1, 2018 and tacks on 1.75 cents per ounce. It affects soda, sports drinks, kombucha, and other sugary beverages that don’t list milk as their first ingredient.

Good. The people loved it when the cigarette tax was imposed on smokers.

Now they get some of the same.

I hope it hits all states.

Remember every tax you pay is a deduction on your tax return.

If you drink anything but distilled water, it is virtually poison, so just put it next to the obama care tax and avoid both.

Seattle here!

I don't touch soda or sugary drinks with a ten foot pole! So I won't be affected!

Does Starbucks have to add that tax to their sugary beverages?

They apparently are not taxing DIET SODA....

Diet soda should be taxed just like Non-diet soda.

And all Starbucks drinks with a lot of sugar should be taxed.

GREAT idea!

I worked in coffee in like 95 I think it was. Starbucks was just a local thing to you guys I believe back then, not everywhere like it is now.

There was really only a white chocolate or regular chocolate mocha on the menu that would of been a problem.

That's like drinking skim milk compared to those frappuccinos, seriously I wouldn't be surprised if they had more sugar and fat in them than a standard milkshake.

Starbucks uses NO ice cream at all. Most of their special drinks are loaded with sugar, unless you order black regular coffee or such.

It is coffee, milk, sugar, sugared flavor syrups, and whipped cream.
