A Message From a Five-Pound Bag of Sugar

BAG OF SUGAR: Pssst!  Psst! Listen, we’ve gotta talk — seriously, I mean now.

I’ve gotta teach you a simple math equation:

One regular 20 ounce soda, every day = me, 10 times — that’s 50 pounds per person per year!!  Not good.

All those pounds of me have the enormous potential of bringing on obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

YOUR HEART:  Must you torture me!?  OOOOOOWWWWW!

BAG OF SUGAR: Please, please, please do your bodies a favor: stop your daily diet of sodas and sugary foods.

 

YOUR HEART:  Do drink water and unsweetened teas and eat lots of fruits and veggies, please.  If you really need that fizz, get some seltzer.  You’ll do me –ahem!– us a world of good.

BOTH:  Thank you.
