This week, company officials said Wegmans will stop selling its own brand of soda because its “Food You Feel Good About” slogan doesn’t stand for foods with artificial colors, tastes, or preservatives.
About the change, the company put out the following statement:
Due to the presence of artificial ingredients like aspartame and high fructose corn syrup, Wegmans Brand Soda will no longer be sold in our stores. We are committed to our goal of helping customers live healthier, better lives through exceptional food, and we want you to trust Wegmans Brand products.
A spokesperson for Wegmans said that the company won’t be making any more Wegmans-brand soda and that they expect to sell their current stock within the next week.
In 1991, Wegmans started offering its own brand of soda.
