Here’s one of the six retro cans of Dr. Pepper, introduced in celebration of 125 years of making money off of selling a curiously flavored drink.
We’ve highlighted one of the most annoying marketing habits of the past few years, which the Dr has picked up as well – adding an innocent looking claim “made with real sugar”.
The idea of course is to alleviate consumers’ worries about high fructose corn syrup, a sweetener that some people confuse with the devil himself.
Most scientists agree that both sweeteners are equally bad in the amounts consumed today in the US.
What do you think – are the TEN TEASPOONS OF SUGAR in a single can a moderate amount to consume?
People please – whether it’s real sugar or fake sugar, try to limit the amount you take in.
Shame on you Dr. Pepper for misleading us to obesity.
What to do at the supermarket:
The quickest and most proven way to reduce sugar consumption is to forgo the soft drinks aisle in the supermarket. You’ll save $500 per family of 4 over the course of a year, too.
