The straw wrapper from 1983 I certainly remember going well into the noughties.

They didn't give them to you with your meal, you had to take them out of a round plastic container.

Oh aye, you're right, and that is clearly what's pictured.

There's still a few KFCs with the same thing. God knows how filthy the spinny cog at the bottom must get.

I peeled a thing off my free McFlurry earlier to find I had won a free McFlurry. Now I'm fat.

I keep getting the Apple Pie or Sundae prize.

Claiming the prizes are a lot easier on the self service terminals.

The sugar tax doesn't appear to have made its way to this vending machine in Bognor - but then again, some of the Coca Cola branding appears to be some 20 years old, so perhaps it'll get there eventually.

The fact is there are thousands of independent cafes, newsagents and crap that sells Cans of Can't that will not be applying any form of levy to their prices.

Metrochallenge Time: The greasy spoon cafe my dad took me to about 25 years ago in Fulham is still open on Peterborough Road SW6 is still open. I would like to take a 5 shilling bet with anybody here that their drinks cans are all the same price, irrespective of how much tooth-rotting glucose they contain. Nor how much carcinogenic artificial sweeter is in them ...

Come on. Five shiny shillings.

My local cafe hasn't raised prices for his full sugar soft drinks at all.

I've noticed as well that multibuy discounts on full sugar coke seem to have returned over the past week or so in Tesco and Asda at least, after they vanished when the tax first came in.

We haven't rose prices on our trains either. Full sugar Coke, diet coke and the halfway house lighter Sprite are all still £2
