Liquid calories are responsible for a shocking 21 percent of our daily calorie intake! Consumers are often looking for a quick and satisfying way to quench their thirst but their choices often sadly increase their waistlines at the same time. There are also health risks when consuming too much caffeine, especially in energy drinks. These tubes were designed to show students and consumers the outrageous amount of sugar and the amount of caffeine found in today’s popular drink choices. The serving sizes available for most of these drinks have also become excessive! This test tube set shows you the sugar and caffeine in an 8 ounce serving so you can compare the products.
This set displays the following 8 oz. drinks: Red Bull & Other Energy Drinks, Mountain Dew, Enhanced Water, Sports Drinks, Juice Drinks, Sweetened Iced Tea, Starbucks Frappuccino Mocha, Starbucks Flavored Latte, Kool-Aid, Chocolate Shake. (8 extra large tubes and 2 super-sized tubes)
Sugar-sweetened beverages account for at least 20%
of the weight gained in the last 30 years!
