Brigham Young University Starts Selling Caffeinated Soda on Campus

Brigham Young University announced Thursday that it will start to sell caffeinated soft drinks on campus.

Students or visitors will no longer need to bring their own sodas onto the 33,000-student campus, Dean Wright, the school's director of dining services, said on the university's website. The Idaho outpost of BYU says, unlike the Provo campus, they haven't been inundated with requests to allow the sale of caffeinated drinks.

Brigham Young spokeswoman Carri Jenkins told The Salt Lake Tribune that the soda products will continue to be provided through their contract with the Coca-Cola Co. and that this news only extends to soda, not to other caffeinated beverages.

"Despite what was reported, the Church revelation spelling out health practices (Doctrine and Covenants 89) does not mention the use of caffeine".

Perhaps the most interesting comment came from students talking about the economic impact this would have... on the gas stations near campus where they used to get their caffeinated drinks.

Amber Whiteley said she used to get nasty looks when she brought Mountain Dew to campus when she was a BYU student almost a decade ago.

In a telephone interview, Whiteley said the change could impact views among Mormons about caffeine.

Mormons neither smoke nor drink alcohol, coffee, or tea, as it is prohibited by their religion. In a Facebook post, Caffeine Corner said, "Sounds like we're still in business".

"Caffeinated soft drinks have never been banned from campus", she said.
