CBS DFW is reporting that Coke, Pepsi, and Dr. Pepper are coming out with new vending machines that will display how many calories are in their drinks.

The idea is to let consumers get the nutritional information before purchasing a drink. The machines will debut in Chicago and San Antonio in 2013, before they are sent out across the country.

According to The American Beverage Association the machines will increas the availabilty of lower-calorie drinks and remind consumers to consider alternatives to their favorite sugary drinks.

The machines will even have messages on them such as, “Try a Low-Calorie Beverage.”
