Who else got a chance to read the 2012 wrap up from beverage digest?

Wow! 1987 levels! This doesn't surprise me too much though as a lot of people are consuming a lot more new age beverages, energy drinks, and RTD iced teas and therefore are drinking less sodas. Sparkling fruit drinks like Pelligrino Lemon, Orange, and Grapefruit are also becoming increasingly popular and are like sodas in many ways but may not be classified as sodas. A lot of younger people especially are drinking less sodas (like my sister) and more alternative beverages and water.
