Everybody knows what sugar does to you, right?
The trick word is EVERYBODY.
Can we say fat, rotten teeth, and diabetes?
So, since EVERYBODY knows this, it’s not smart ‘bidniz’ for junk food companies to list sugar outright in the ingredients.

Anhydrous dextrose, cane crystals, corn sweetener, corn syrup, corn syrup solids, crystal dextrose, evaporated cane juice…
There’s like 56 of these little sweeties out there, sugar dressed up in disguise.
Don’t ya love Evaporated Cane Juice?
