I’m Lovin’ the Sugar

Tangy BBQ Sauce

Assuming you’re the average American, you have probably ordered McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets. You may have even tried their Tangy BBQ sauce or Sweet N’ Sour sauce. You probably didn’t think there was that much sugar in a 1 oz. package of these sauces, but there is 10 grams of sugar in both of these items.

Most mindlessly dunk their chicken McNuggets in their sauce and don’t even think about the 10 grams of sugar included in it. Especially¬†when it comes to the Tangy BBQ sauce, which doesn’t seem sweet. Here’s something to learn from this: just because something doesn’t taste “sweet”, doesn’t mean a significant amount of sugar isn’t an ingredient.
