Oh dear!

I just saw my friend eat a packet of sweets. Out of interest, because I don’t eat things like that, I wondered what amount of sugar he had eaten….

It’s hard to see but seven sweets have 16.4 grams of sugar, and the packet contains seven servings. One hundred grams of sweets contains 61.4 grams of sugar.

But that’s not all, the actual weight of the packet was 143 grams. So approximately 100 grams of that was sugar…. Like eating a tenth of a kilogram bag of sugar.

This sweet fruity treat has the main ingrelisted first, Sugar, Glucose Syrup, Starch, inverted sugar syrup, etc.

What got me the most was we have a fruit bowl full of oranges in the kitchen. Why is stuff like this sold?
