Sugar in hot drinks - level 1

Experts analyse hot drinks. They find out that there is a lot of sugar in the drinks. The worst are mochas and lattes.

In a can of Coke, there are 9 teaspoons of sugar. In Caffe Nero's Caramel Latte, there are 13 teaspoons of sugar. In a Costa Chai Latte, there are 20 teaspoons of sugar. In a Starbucks’s hot mulled fruit drink, there are 25 teaspoons of sugar!

These drinks are not good for you. They can make you fat and make your teeth bad.

Difficult words: analyse (to study), find out (to get to know), mulled (a hot liquid that has sugar and spices).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
