San Pellegrino Sparkling Juice Drinks

Did you know that San Pellegrino Sparkling Grapefruit drink contains more sugar than Coca Cola? Per can, the San Pellegrino contains 39.9g of sugar, whilst Coke contains 35g.  That’s nearly a teaspoon more.

It’s a plain old sugary soft drink, dressed up to look not so.  And to be fair, they’ve done a pretty good job!  I imagine that there’s plenty of people drinking these drinks, thinking that they’re simply mineral water with a dash of fruit juice.  Ah, the power of branding.
