Can I interest anyone in a shake? For decades Mickey D's has been making delicious shakes for people of all shapes. The image below provides us with a shocking visualization of how much sugar is really packed into a small milkshake.   For those of you looking to quantify this amount, there are 28 sugar cubes in the picture. At approximately, 4 g of sugar/cube that's a whopping 112 grams of sugar in that seemingly innocent, quickly consumed SMALL shake! Yum!

Let's compare that to a cup of strawberries, which has around 8 grams of sugar (2 cubes). Seems like an obvious choice…right?!?
