Back in the day there used to be soda vending machines everywhere! Outside the grocery store, market, the park, schools, the laundromat, random shops,...everywhere! Due to the skyrocketing cases of child obesity and diabetes, local and federal governments began to promote more health conscious food choices thus cutting back on soda machines all over the place. All of this was actually a good idea. I was just thinking to myself the other day that you don't see as many old and beat up soda machines throughout the city anymore but maybe that's a good thing.
