Sugar Stacks Gives Visual Cue of Sugar Contained in Common Foods

Talking Nutrition Shows Us "How Much Sugar" Is in Coke

Straight from the OnSugar blog Let's Talk Nutrition: Organically inclined, naturally fabulous, is a visual cue of how much sugar (literally) is stacked up in soda.


One of my students forwarded an email containing this picture along with lots of others showing commonly consumed foods along with their sugar equivalent depicted in sugar cubes. This was very eye-opening!  A visual does so much more than any nutrition lecture ever could. I did a little research and found the website Sugar Stacks. Take a minute to check it out, I'm sure it will surprise you.

That seriously grossed me out! I used to love Coke, but these days I love my water.

Yep, and what's actually in the stuff is HFCS, not regular sugar. Mmmm, mmmmm. There should be a website where someone puts containers of HFCS next to the products showing how much is in them. That would be more accurate.

One day I measured out the amount of sugar that was in a can of soda (took a picture and put it online). Yuck. I stopped drinking soda about 6 years ago. I'll have one every once and a while, but never regularly. I know people who will drink 3-4 glasses (about 1-2 cups per glass) in one sitting. When I was younger, I would sit at the computer all day and drink 6-8.

I never did like the taste of regular is way too syrupy feeling and it tastes way too sweet. I like diet soda because it's a lot lighter tasting and not nearly as sweet.

I just can't stomach the stuff. Waaaaaay to "thick" and sweet.

I believe it! A couple days ago I was drinking a cherry Coke thinking it was diet... 2 sips told me there was something wrong as it was sickeningly sweet and syrupy, looked at the bottle and sure enough it was regular!
