And finally, the latest fast food trend that’s going to drive parents crazy: Soda for breakfast.
Three chains — Steak ‘n Shake and some Taco Bells and Sonics — are promoting breakfast deals that include drinks like a 28-ounce Coke, starting at 6 in the morning. Some Taco Bells in California are testing out Mountain Dew with orange juice.
One place they probably won’t be market-testing the soda for breakfast thing? New York City, where Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s trying to ban super-sized sodas, any time of the day.
