Because reality is beautiful.

The sugar system.

One of the unique things about being human is that we cannot do anything that we can’t conceptualize. The amount of sugar is something is really hard to visualize. Even if you say something like “Contains 18 tablespoons of sugar per serving” it doesn’t necessarily help me. I have no idea what a pile of 18 tablespoons sugar looks like, or what 8 oz looks like in different glasses. Useless, I say.

So, her is my proposal for a rating system for the sugar in drinks. The standard will be Mussleman’s apple juice. It’s a plain old, everyman’s sort of apple juice. The sugar level of this standard apple juice will be 1.0. Then all other drinks will be rated by that standard.

Cranberry juice .2

Coke 3.0

Pepsi 3.1.

Orange juice 1.1

Starbucks Frappuccino 2.9
