Sweet Thang

So two of the kids came home from Wednesday School with these sugar bombs. Belch!

Each one contains 52 grams of sugar!!!! And 300 calories!!!

So as part of "health" class we had to find out how much of a food you would need to eat to equal that much sugar. Here's what we came up with. You could eat 86 of these animal cookies.
Or 8 of the these coconut milk ice cream sandwiches, which by the way is the whole box!!!
How about 5.2 packages of these fruit snack things.
Or if those don't suit your fancy you can eat 9 of these suckers!!! NINE people!!!
You could also just go get a a heaping 1/4 of a cup of sugar and eat that too!!! Or there is the 16 ounce of coke you could suck down too to equal the same amount of sugar.
Yuck!! Gag!!! Vomit!!!!
And we wonder why everyone is so fat and diabetes is running rampant!!!
It amazes me how much food like product they come home with from school. I'm so glad they are only there once a week!
Here's the ingredients just in case you were wondering.
Sugar, Corn Syrup, Beef Gelatin, Artificial flavor, Artificial Color (yellow 5, yellow 6, red 40 and blue 1)

Wasn't that crazy?!? I couldn't believe it either when I saw what she had. Still can't beleive that you could have 86 animal crackers and it would be the same amount of sugar as that thing.
