Whipped Cream VS. Sugary Food

Have you ever chugged down a bottle of whipped cream?

Well, if you looked at “The Secret Behind Whipped Cream” whipped cream might not be good for you but, there is only 6.5 grams of sugar in a whole bottle of whipped cream. But do not chug down whipped cream on a  regular basis or you might have some problems….

At least you are notdownload having as much sugar as a box of Cocoa Krispies.  That has 25 grams of sugar.

Which cereal is the best for you?

If you are only supposed to eat 24 grams of sugar each day, is Apple Jacks, Cocoa Krispies, or Cinnamon Brown Sugar Crunch best for you?

Apple Jacks only has 15 grams of sugar, which is 9 grams less than what you are supposed to eat. Unfortunately, Cocoa has 25 grams of sugar, which is over the limit of sugar. Finally, the Cinnamon Brown cereal has a total of 16 grams of sugar.

It looks like Apple Jacks is the best, but Cinnamon Brown is very close behind the Apple Jacks. If you like Cocoa Krispies, think twice about buying this sugar killer.

___________________________________________

Thanksgiving is approaching fast and I know that everyone is looking forward to one thing…

Black Friday! No, I’m joking, its Thanksgiving dinner. And we all know the highlight of the dinner is the Turkey. You may think that the Turkey doesn’t have any sugar in it and you would be correct. But what’s really the ticking time bomb of sugar is the cranberry sauce.

The thing that is always hard to spread over your Turkey has 21 grams of sugar per 1/4 cup (Serving Size).  So next time that you reach for another serving of the sauce think twice before pouring the whole can all over your plate. Happy Thanksgiving!

SugarBucks: Caffe Mocha with No Whipped Cream

_______________________________________________

It’s that time of year, it’s getting chilly and we all want Starbucks, just don’t get this…

The Caffe Mocha with soy milk and no whipped cream has 34 grams of sugar. That’s over one daily serving of sugar. You also have to think that this drink doesn’t have whipped cream. Its very high in sugar yet it doesn’t have all the extra stuff and flourishes. So next time you go to Starbucks and get a drink, make a healthier choice.

Go go get to squeezing!!

Every day at lunch time my dad puts a go go squeeze into my lunch box for a healthy snack. I wanted to see if it actually was a healthy snack. So when I researched it, it was actually pretty healthy.

It was rated a B. Which in Middle school language means that it is really good. It has 60 calories, 12 grams of sugar, and you can bring the go go squeeze really anywhere. So go go get squeezing.

That’s right I’m flipping the saying, want to know why?

Halloween is a time to celebrate… not if you pass out for over dosing sugar. Every year Americans buy 600 million pounds of candy for Halloween!  That’s the equivalent of 6 Titanic ships! Imagine how much the average American eats every Halloween. Well the answer to that is 3.4 pounds.  The most popular being M&Ms, which has 31 grams of sugar per regular bag. So this Halloween think, is it a treat or a trick!

We’re Back

Our three week break is over now

After three weeks of sleeping in , playing with friends, and watching football — in other words, on vacation — we are ready to get back to sharing our knowledge of sugar with you.

Be on the lookout for posts this week about Ghirardelli Chocolate Chips.

See you Later

It’s the time for the leaves to fall and the kids to pick out their Halloween costumes,

It’s also the time when middle schoolers kick their feet up and spend a few weeks out of school , staying up late and sleeping in.  Sugar IS important — but so is Fall Vacation, y’all!

That means there won’t be any new posts here until we are back in school near the end of October!  We are looking forward to writing for you again — but we are also looking forward to camping trips and sleepovers too!

Sincerely,

The Sugar Kills Team.

Ghirardelli Chocolate Chips are Bittersweet?

copy-of-sugar-slide-basic

__________________________________________________________

Ghirardelli chocolate chips are mini and delicious. The whole bag can be gone in a minute with some of the chocoholics out there.

These mini chips might seem a little too sweet for you, considering the amount you can eat, but your mind will change when you find out the nutrition. That’s right! 115 chips only have 8 grams of sugar! Plus, there is about 7 one hundredths of sugar in each chip! Since when has chocolate become more healthy?

Milkshakes are a creamier drink than others. Its sweet, sugary, and totally cravable!

If you want an 18 oz milkshake, Do Not Go To McDonald’s, because their Triple Thick Shake has a whopping 546 grams of sugar in an 18 oz cup! Look for yourself by visiting this site and changing the serving size to 18 ounces.
