Some LDS Schools and Buildings Sell Caffeine, BYU Newspaper Examines Why BYU Still Doesn't


Recently, BYU spokeswoman Carri Jenkins explained to The Daily Universe why BYU doesn't sell caffeinated beverages. In addition, writer Jayne Verhaaren interviewed “the caffeine dealer,” a vendor who delivers caffeinated sodas to people on campus.

LDS Business College recently began selling caffeinated soda, joining the Joseph Smith Memorial Building on Temple Square.

However, BYU — also an entity of the Church — still does not sell caffeinated sodas on campus.

BYU communications professor Robert Walz said one argument commonly given to explain not having caffeine on campus is a lack of demand.
