Given the dependencies of governments from taxes, I bet any tax source 
will be preserved.
So, the best way to preserve soft drinks is to tax them, so the 
government will have good reasons to not ban them and to protect them 
from competition.

They banned alcohol until they needed the revenues. Then they legalized 
it and taxed it.
The food pyramid supported by the US government could see as a way to 
enhance the selling of this type of beverages.
