Price of pop from Capitol Hill’s Mystery Soda Machine hits $1.00

A can of sugary, delicious Coca Cola, or Mr. Pibb, or Orange Crush from Capitol Hill’s Mystery Soda Machine(tm) now costs $1.00.

The latest bump in price for the E John vending machine comes along with Seattle’s new soda tax — 1.75 pennies for every ounce of sugary drinks purchased. Gatorade shoppers are appalled — though there is no reason the excise tax has to be passed along to consumers. The soda industry is now worried the tax might spread to the entire state and mystery soda machines in cities from here to Pullman.

The secret organization that stocks and operates the Capitol Hill machine could not be reached for comment.
