Ever had a Skittles pouch?
I bet you have, and you probably loved them.
But, are you ready to hear the dark side of Skittles?
Here we go!
1/4, of a cup of Skittles has a mind blowing 30.6 grams of sugar — and listen to this: You’re only supposed to have 24 grams of sugar a day.
Think about that.
See the problem?
You’re 6 grams of sugar above what you should have in a day. In only 1/4 of a cup of Skittles!

After a refreshing track-out we are back and training more kids for our club! The summer was hot and the lemonade was tasty. We hope to make many more posts about sugar and about moon pies. Do you have any questions? How about any suggestions or requests? Feel free to leave a comment. We are looking forward to a great year!

Have you ever had a delicious Hostess Twinkies? Do you have them often? Well, there is 33 grams of added sugar in 2 Twinkies. That is 9 more grams than how much sugar you should have daily! Think, do you want to have 2 Twinkies or 5 pieces of a KitKat? Which one do you think is a better deal?

It’s that time again that us Killzers kick back, put our feet up, and enjoy the amazing weather outside. We’ll be gone for about 3 weeks, then we’ll be back to making some new content. Feel free to leave a comment about something you’d like to see a post abouts. Thanks always,

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.
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!

Have you ever gone to Starbucks looking for something “healthy” to eat? I don’t know about you but I look straight at the Classic Coffee Cake. There’s no chocolate or glaze.
No! It has 36 grams of sugar! That is 12 (50%) more grams of sugar than the limit which is 24 grams of sugar.
So next time you stop at the coffee shop stay away from the Classic Coffee Cake.

Almond Joys are so joyful.
Almond Joys are pretty good for you. They only have 8 grams of sugar. They are also one of the healthiest chocolates because they have a lot of fiber. So next time, choose an Almond joy instead of a Milky Way.

You leave the cookies and milk out for Santa on Christmas, right? Do you ever wonder how much sugar he consumes?
Well, just three sugar cookies have 42 grams of sugar! Also, just one cup (8 fl.oz) of reduced fat milk (2% fat) has 12.3 grams of sugar! In total, that’s 54.3 grams of sugar!
Oh yeah: And Santa eats this at millions of houses a night!
