Soft drinks are regularly cited as one of the top causes of obesity and tooth decay in Australia: yet we still quaff them by the gallon. You know it's bad for you -- you may have even tried to quit -- but that highly addictive sugar hit will always have you in its thrall. This infographic breaks down the sugar content in five popular drinks; from Coke to Powerade. The ranking might actually surprise you. (Who would have thought a certain iced tea would be worse than Red Bull?)
Now, it should be noted that the below infographic was produced by Australian beverage company Nexba to spruik a new range of sugar-free products. However, there's nothing suss about the content: indeed, the same information is readily available on each product's nutrition label.
Nevertheless, it's still interesting to see them ranked together like this -- we never would have guessed that the stevia-based Pepsi Next contains more sugar than full-strength Red Bull, for example. (Albeit in a lager serving size, but who drinks half a can?)
