Junk food equivalents of sugary drinks

Posted to Statistics  |  Nathan Yau

Men’s Health takes a look at America’s most sugary drinks and their junk food equivalents. A Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha with whipped cream (venti size) from Starbucks has the same amount of sugar as 8½ scoops of Edy’s Slow Churned Rich and Creamy Coffee Ice Cream.
