I bought an "Espresso Premium Coffee Soda" when I was out the other day. It's very good! I entertained the idea of getting more, but first wanted to see just how much added sugar there was in it. 37 grams.

Nevermind, I'll enjoy this one and be done.

I wanted to visualize it, and my kids happened to walk over, so I got to show them.

I got the scale, set a shallow bowl on it, and started filling it with sugar so they could see just how much 37 grams was.

I ended up with the entire sugar bowl on the scale. That really drives home just how much sugar they are getting in stuff like that.

(Still tasty, but not a regular thing.)
