Sugar Stacks: How Much Sugar is in your Food? is a website dedicated to showing you how much sugar is in the food we eat.  Using a simple visual of stacked sugar cubes, you can see the sugar content of many different types of food.  I love that it's simple and visually gets one point across really well.  There are words on website, but you really don't need them.

We've used regular sugar cubes (4 grams of sugar each) to show how the sugars in your favorite foods literally stack up, gram for gram.  Compare foods, find out where sugar is hiding, and see how much of the sweet stuff you're really eating.

Found on, and as they note, the website doesn't differentiate between types of sugars, the white sugar cubes are used to represent them all.


  1. Every time I drink one of these things, I think of these. Just drank one today.

  2. Very cool, tactile concept. I'm wondering how accurate it is though in telling the story since it doesn't differentiate.
