Another weakness I used to have, that I'm slowly starting to forget about is Mexican Coke and Throw Back Pepsi. Something about that super-sweet-fizzy-jolt that is nectar from the gods to me. I'd take one of those drinks over wine any day. And there are some meals that seem incomplete without these accessory beverages (e.g., for me, it's Mexican food and pizza).
But...now knowing that a teaspoon of sugar has 4gs of refined white sugar carbs...check this out.
Throwback Pepsi: 40gs of sugar, or 10 teaspoons. This is what 10 teaspoons of sugar looks like. This is one of those Pyrex custard cups that holds about 1/2 cup liquid...so this is about a scant 1/4 cup.
Interesting. So needless to say, these beverages are only for the most special of occasions as "drinking" this on any sort of regular basis doesn't seem quite right.
