    Numbers Game: Answer

    dunkin-donuts-cup-400x300A large Dunkin’ Donuts mocha coffee (black coffee with mocha syrup) contains 11.5 teaspoons of added sugar.

    Context time!  If this is your morning coffee order, that means you are drinking:

    • An additional teaspoon and a half of sugar than you would from a 12-ounce can of soda
    • As much sugar as in nine Oreo cookies
    • As much sugar as 44 mini marshmallows
    • The equivalent of a large cup of coffee sweetened with eleven and a half packets of sugar

    Even a small mocha coffee contains two tablespoons of added sugar in the form of flavored syrup.

    What truly disturbs me is that these preposterous sugar levels are considered “normal”.

      No, they aren’t lying. If you take a look at the ingredients, there is no sweetener of any kind present in the French Vanilla flavoring.

      Oh, good. My addiction is moderately safe. Still, I should probably switch to just plain, anyway.
