How many Sugar Cubes in your Drink?

We all keep reading about the ludicrous amounts of sugar content in our daily drinks. Some drink labels print it, some keep it hidden under the pseudonym of HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup) or the newly coined CORN SUGAR, whichever ways, it slowly makes it way in our body. The amount seems not so comprehensible, when you read a 12 oz (355 ml) Can contains 39 grams of sugar, but would it make more sense to you when it is placed in sugar cubes? Luckily, we found Sugar Stacks, a wonderful resource that puts up the amount of sugar in a beverage in the form of corresponding sugar cubes. Interesting, isn’t it? Let’s see, just how much sugar cubes your daily Coca Cola has?

It seems way too intricate and incredibly wide to me. I will be excited for your upcoming post, I’ll attempt to get the hang of that!
