Off Topic Factoid on Sugar Consumption

Date: Thu Apr 18 2002 - 20:41:23 EEST

How many of the members of this list drink their coffee with 10 packets of sugar?

At first, this appears to be an absurd question--but a 12 oz can of regular Pepsi contains 41 grams of sugar, which is more than ten four gram packets of sugar. So if you want to sweeten your coffee to the same level as a can of Pepsi, you would need to add more than ten packets of sugar.
If you drink one can of Pepsi each day, you will have consumed approximately 33 pounds of sugar during a one year period.
