France has had a calorie tax since 2011. Hungary since 2012. Over 9 million Americans live under a calorie tax right now. Not a single nation, city or municipality has repealed a calorie tax and the principle result has been a 15-20% decline in the consumption of sugary beverages.

Their citizens also have far less disposable income, because European socialism. So of course a consumption tax would work effectively there.
