Imagine this: Take a quarter measuring cup, fill it to the brim with sugar, and then eat the whole thing in one sitting. Delicious, right?
Disgusting is more like it. Even as an intensely sweet-toothed kid, I wouldn’t have been able to do it (a teaspoon was my crunchy, decadent limit). But guess what? That’s exactly how much sugar is in a 16-ounce Starbucks Iced Caramel Macchiato. Sweet drinks are one thing, but did you know that sugar is hiding in processed and packaged foods that aren’t remotely considered desserts or treats? Gulp.
