Unreal Eats is Healthy Living's original video series, where we go behind calorie counts and health claims to examine what's really in the processed foods that scream loudest in our food environment.
We know, we know, big drinks are bad for you. But even the most vehement drink-size critic can't really illustrate just how bad. So we decided to take some of the biggest, baddest drinks in town and compare them to food. Because it's one thing to know that a Double Gulp of Mountain Dew has 193 grams of sugar, and quite another to realize that that's the same amount in more than two (two!) pints of Ben & Jerry's ice cream.
If you need us, we'll be chugging water in the corner.
