Sugar in hot drinks – level 1

18-08-2023 15:00

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 watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
