The soft drink calorie horror – check out the seriously scary doughnut value!

Men’s Health America has decided to scare the pants off us with a journey through the soft drink horror stories of the United States. Before we all scoff (ho ho), cluck and roll our eyes in knowing despair at our American cousins, we should remember that many of these brands are available here and we see them in school lunch boxes by the hundreds of thousands.

For instance, take the Rockstar Energy Drink.

According to Men’s Health America it contains the sugar equivalent of SIX Krispy Kreme Original Glazed Doughnuts.

That’s right: six doughnuts.

I mean, erm, WTH?!

Speaking as a diabetic, a few of those a day would make for an interesting experience… Seriously, though, how on earth can anyone think that has any serious nutritional value for your average, sofa-bound, pizza-gorging gamer addict?

To my mind these sorts of drinks are little more than legalised toxins. Check out the slide-show here.
