So glad I quit drinking pop/soda a few years back. Absolute garbage. I see very unhealthy and morbidly obese people all the time getting the 84 oz(?) drinks from Circle K all the time.

Oh, man. I would have definitely made use of that to feed my Slushy habit during the Summer months when I was a kid. I wonder if there's a minimum age.

Article says they have been testing in GA and SC. Not rolled out nationwide yet.

The Circle K Easy Rewards program gives a free drink after the 10th. Plus at the same time you earn a $2 cashback reward after earning 2000 points with all Circle K purchases.

I'm In! I don't drink soda - only coffee. Still worth it.

This is genius on the part of Circle K. It certainly addresses the problem of refills going away because of Covid. The next time I'm in the large city near me - there aren't any in my town - I'll be signing up. I'm in that large city a fair amount of the time.

As for the health issue - that's on people themselves to monitor and manage their consumption.

P.S. I think this is a great solution to the fact that refills are likely going away for the foreseeable future - if not forever - in convenience stores. That's been very disappointing and frustrating for me. The employees tell me there are a lot of people who complain about it so again, it's a great solution.

Agreed, and some of the choices are healthier than others. Dehydration certainly isn't healthy.
