No sugarcoating it: Shocking sugar totals in top sweets and drinks




Sugar is sweet indeed, but what if we consume mountains of it? Guess what? Many of us do, perhaps without realizing it.

Look at these totals (from Live Science), showing sugar equivalents of several popular sweets and drinks.

Wow.

So a 100-gram Butterfinger candy bar contains the equivalent of seven teaspoonfuls of sugar? And a 20-ounce Gatorade, often passed out to refresh endurance athletes, has more than five tablespoons of sugar? And a 16-ounce Starbucks vanilla latte totals the same as six sugary spoonfuls?


Oh, honey.

There’s no way to sweeten this pill. Maybe a spoonful of sugar won’t help that medicine go down, after all.
