Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

Here's a video from BuzzFeed that shows just how much sugar is in foods ranging like cereal to Starbucks drinks. The video, like their 2,000 calorie one, not only shows how much sugar is in a serving, but also how different foods compare to each other. One interesting find is that McDonald's Hot 'N Spicy McChicken has 22 grams of sugar, which is over four times the amount of sugar in a basic McChicken (5 grams). The numbers are even higher when the video turns its attention the Frappuccino. Weighing in at 69 grams of sugar, the Frappuccino in the video (looks like a grande?) has more sugar than two full-size Snickers bars. Watch the video below for more sugar shocks.
