Brigham Young University Starts Selling Caffeinated Soda on Campus

The university never banned having caffeinated drinks on campus, but held firm to the ban on sales even when The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in 2012 clarified that church health practices do not prevent members from drinking caffeinated soft drinks.

Yep, there's a corporate catch: the university has a contract with Coca-Cola.

BYU Dining Services says it has already begun selling canned and bottled caffeinated soft drinks, but says fountain equipment will take longer to update.

The same can't be said of the university's campus in Rexburg.

And students seem pretty excited. "I am so happy". "Consumer preferences have clearly changed and requests have become much more frequent", the university said in an FAQ announcing the change.

"I think it's a step in the right direction because I think it will lead to more acceptance and less judgment and I think if you judge you can't love", Simons says. Noncaffeinated drinks will also continue to be offered.

The decision occurred around the time that Mitt Romney was spotted swigging a Diet Coke during his presidential campaign against Barack Obama, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

Wright said in the mid-1950s, his predecessor issued the caffeinated soda ban, and it remained the school's policy until Thursday's announcement.

Mormons neither smoke nor drink alcohol, coffee, or tea, as it is prohibited by their religion. Nor should members use harmful or habit-forming substances except under the care of a competent physician. And while non-caffeinated soda versions will still be offered on campus, energy drinks didn't make the cut. "It's a matter of whether students see a demand for a delivery service".
