Sugar Stacks - How Much Sugar Is in That?

Ever wonder how much sugar is in what you're eating? Sugar Stacks visually shows you with sugar cubes. It's an interesting concept and it really lays it out for you by putting a stack of sugar cubes equivalent to the sugar content in the product. In my opinion, real sugar is better than artificial sweeteners or high-fructose corn syrup. While the stacks of cubes are a good way to visualize how much you are eating, I don't think it is fair to depict sugar as the culprit of the calories in all the foods and beverages listed. I would imagine the point is to raise awareness so in that sense it is a jb well done.
