Soda Upheaval The growing obesity epidemic villanizes sugary carbonated drinks Implications - Health concerns and, furthermore, the battle against child obesity has fingers pointing at soda as an "empty calorie" culprit. As a result, soda is being replaced by more health-conscious alternatives that boast the same strong flavor, caffeine content, and even in some cases, visual branding. This upheaval of a classic American beverage signifies the true strength of the health movement.

Sippable Exotic Intriguing beverage flavors make for small doses of culinary adventure Implications - The rise of foodie culture has the average consumer craving more adventure in their edibles; for some, however, the idea of exoticism is intimidating. Daring drinks allow hesitant almost-foodies to sample adventurous flavor. This also gives those within the food industry a way to test less-predictable flavors within their consumer base.

Calorie Currency Health retailers rewarding dieting put wellness first Implications - Today's society is obsessed with the idea of self improvement, specifically within health consciousness. Forwarding this ideal of top health, companies are showing their passion for physical progress by accepting calories or exercise as currency. A strategic defense against an obesity epidemic, incentivizing exercise more directly links health and wellness to products obtained -- and to a brand as a whole.
