A lot has changed if you'd bother to actually read the news. Brexit has fucked the UK because of all the additional paperwork and conditions they need to comply with in order to do trade with the Europeans. Businesses that relied on same-day logistics and the like were totally wrecked. Small and medium businesses that exported perishable goods are most affected. It's almost as if this was foreseeable and forewarned.

in this case it's not much to do with brexit, the trading of natural gas just didn't change much. there's a few reasons for europe not having such an issue though.
we store way less natural gas in reserve (total and per capita) than a lot of european countries do. we also don't produce much locally and some of what we do produce is shut down for maintenance thanks to previous covid restrictions.
we did have some fertiliser plants in the uk which is where the CO2 comes from, but they're shut down due to high natural gas prices. europe does have similar problems here but they can operate more off reserves and obviously they're prioritising local customers.
i'd suspect brexit could come into this with shipping infrastructure issues but it really isn't the driving force. the gas is just too expensive.

This happened a few years back. Guess what happened?
For 1 week. 1 WHOLE WEEK you could only buy 1 bottle of the carbonated beverage of your choosing in each store you went to. 1 bottle! That was it, some stores even ran out of some tasty sweet carbonated beverages for 1 WHOLE FUCKIN WEEK!

With how Britain dealt with the chinkflu, curfews, restrictions and entire parts of shops taped off because 'only necessary goods' were allowed it kind of puts it into perspective a little bit.

This gets an article, but the fact that EVERY SINGLE SOFT DRINK (aside from coca-cola) has been reduced to undrinkable piss water over the past couple of years because of a moronic tax on sugar in food? Yeah, who cares about that.

I used to drink a can every couple of weeks or every month. Now, regular coke is 33% more expensive than "coke zero", and every other beverage on the market has been completely ruined by a switch to a new disgusting "blend" of 10% sugar, 90% sweetener.

Just replace the salt that's ordinarily in the soda with baking soda. All soda is acidic so it will naturally create Co2 while giving it the salt it needs.

Sure it won't be as viable on a large scale indefinitely but it would help in the short term.

It's annoying that it's more expensive because they think this seriously deters fatties.

My main problem is the fact that my choice of a dozen or so cans has now shrunk down to ONE. I like coke, if I had to pick just one of them to save it would've been coke, but I liked 7up, sprite, fanta, tango, dr pepper, and probably another half dozen that don't spring to mind right now. All of these drinks are now undrinkable thanks to nanny state meddling.

And what impact has it had on obesity rates? Fuck all, because sugary drinks were hardly the issue. Want to stop fatties? Charge them more tax for being fat cunts. A set of scales for every office, mandatory physicals, problem solved.

No, the only way to make new CO2 is to smash carbon and oxygen atoms together. Since the UK isn't part of the EU any more they lost their all-access pass to the Large Hadron Collider and have to pay per molecule of CO2 created, so they can't afford to make enough for all the soda.

I'm a bit of a weirdo, I still drink diet juice but not ones flavoured with aspertame, usually only ones with sucralose, steva & good ol' citric acid. What I do is I get myself a good ol' 2L bottle, 2 empties and I put a liter of cordial/squash in each and dump the 2L bottle of diet juice right into it. I haven't drank a "regular" soda or one with aspertame in it for around 6 years now.
Really when it comes down to it I'd be drinking lemon/lime cordial in sparkling/carbonated water but it's actually more expensive and surprisingly harder to buy than just regular diet lemonade as it's out of stock more often. If I can't find it I'll just drink cordial/squash etc but not nearly as fun.

The drinks are over carbonated anyway desu, I think they do it because regular folk can't pour their shit into smaller bottles or measure out what they drink.

u wot lass?
Did the brexiteers go in and sabotage mainland Europe as well as negotiating almost nothing? Damn, no wonder they got a raw deal. Didn't expect them to have that much influence and power.

It's entirely the fault of the fertiliser farms ceasing production due to the gas shortage and price increases. The UK doesn't have great gas stores so the co2 produced is being prioritised to the medical industry and not food/drinks manufacture. You can hate brexit all you want but it has absolutely nothing to do with this.

>> No.16732047

Years back they removed all the "unhealthy" options from school cafeterias over here thanks to a moronic campaign from a celebrity chef.

How well has the childhood obesity rate improved since then? Well, it's just gotten worse. And it's going to keep getting worse until they actually bother putting big shiny numbers on each packet.

This thing is worth 1 no-no point. This other thing is 2 no-no points. If you hit 10 no-no points in one day, you should stop eating. Everything packaged for individual use, because fat cunts can't stop buying party size bags and eating them all by themselves in one sitting.

Proles have no concept of portion control because these basic skills aren't taught, they're assumed. And "this is a handful of food, that's enough" grug thinking goes out the window when you have delicious refined sugars that tell your brain "eat all of this, eat all of this right now", and when a handful is already half your calorie count for the day instead of 1/20th if you were eating bugs and berries.

>> No.16732055

I'm only 31 but food education was absolutely abysmal when I was at school. Even in the mandatory home economics classes you get early high school, it was teaching you the most basic homemaker skills and cookery.
Then when you get to third year and you have to choose subjects you're taking you're left with classes that will teach you useful stuff like biology/chemistry/maths etc. You'd be more likely to see nutritional information in classes like physical education & biology etc than you would in home ec, waste of a slot that's there to teach kids how to cook pasta & bake.
