Buried deep in the Obamacare law is a regulation that vending machines will have to post the calorie count next to the items in the machine. Vending machines are a high volume low margin business and the cost of implementation is estimated to be$25.8 million initially, and $24 million each year thereafter. There are about 10,800 small companies effected of which 75% of them have 3 or less employees. The result will be that many will go out of business and those that survive will have to raise the prices of the merchandise sold. This will directly cost you the consumer more money for your treats. Didn’t we already know that those goodies had calories in them and were fattening?
