The full horror of what is being sold as tea etc. is revealed today by Action on Sugar here:
The worst offender is (as usual) Starbucks whose hot mulled fruit drink (what on earth is that?) comes with a mind-blowing 99g or 25 teaspoons of sugar!!! Imagine stirring 25 teaspoons of sugar into a cup of tea!!
Starbucks’s response to coming top of the poll of sugar poisoners was so perfunctory as to be hilarious:
“Earlier this year we committed to reduce added sugar in our indulgent drinks by 25% by the end of 2020.”
The end of 2020? Why does it take four years to stop opening a bottle of sugar syrup and pouring it in people’s tea. Get real Starbucks and stop giving people diabetes, and while you are at it, pay some tax.
