Whats Brown and Sweet and Cheaper than Water?Posted: September 24, 2013
I was inspired by this brief post by Marion Nestle on her blog, Food Politics. It concerns one of the only countries with an obesity higher rate than the United States. In Mexico, soda is cheaper than bottled water.
I am not sure about the water quality in Mexico, but in most developing countries bottled water is one of few convenient, clean, and reliable source. I spent a year travelling and working in South East Asia, the tap was well…. questionable.
I have compiled a list of countries where Coca-Cola is specifically cheaper than bottled water
Many more I am sure but these were the ones I could confirm. I was inclined to throw Cambodia up but could not be sure.
