I went to get a diet soda from our company pepsi machine ( they have the monopoly in our company). Last week I had gotten a regular pepsi for a guest with low sugars, so I knew it was only one dollar. Much to my surprise, Diet pepsi is $1.50. I looked back at regular pepsi, $1.00! So I thought, uh uh, I'll just get a bottled water. $1.50. Ok, how about ice tea-$1.50. Everything I could drink was more then the one I couldn't drink, especially when my numbers were in the 170's.
Now I know they didn't do this just to screw with me, this affects all diabetics at work, and I work for a very large company. So now I am on a quest to find out why the non sugar drinks cost more, even water, in a vending machine. I am going to be keeping my eyes open at every vending machine I see to see if this is the norm or just something pepsi is doing at our company. I am just so shocked that a bottle of water costs more then a bottle of soda. When you go to a restaraunt, the diet cost the same as the reg. What is going on? The search for the truth begins.
