Less Soda

Soda consumption in the United States is down to levels that have not been seen in decades.

FOX News Radio's Bill Vitka reports:

What we're drinking is less soda... and more of just about everything else. 

U.S. sales of carbonated soft drinks fizzled last year, just like like they did the two years before that. The decline is 1.2%, which brings consumption down to 1996 levels. Per capita, it falls to 1987 levels.

In place of soda, we're chugging down more energy drinks, more tea and more water.

Back at soda pop nation: Coke rules the category with a 17% share, in second is Diet Coke, Pepsi ranks third even though regular and Diet Pepsi both lost market share.
