Before we jump into the list of energy drinks with the most sugar, we want to remind our readers that consuming massive amounts of sugar is incredibly unhealthy and will cause a ton of health issues for you so we recommend you think twice about drinking these drinks on a daily basis.
We also want to point out that 4 grams of sugar is equivalent to 1 teaspoon. So consuming a drink with over 40 grams of sugar means you’re drinking over 10 teaspoons in a single drink. Kind of scary right?
