~ Sugar Content in Food & Drinks ~


What A SUGARUnique Way
To Present This…
4.2 grams = 1 teaspoon of sugar = 1 cube !
Someone ought to get an award for this. We know the facts, but this
brings it into perspective quickly, doesn’t it?
Each cube is a teaspoonful.





















 














Now someone needs to do this with salt!

My apologies for the pictures not being aligned....computer acting up and I just couldn't hang ~

It really steers me away from so many purchases. I always look at the sugar content. Good Post Pat.

Wow, and to think I just downed a Coca Cola which I drink maybe once a year. It's a hot one today. That amount of sugar should keep me going till midnight. Thanks for the perspective.
