Insanely Cool Photos That Capture Sugar Content in Popular Drinks

August 12, 2015 2 min read

A food photographer has put some photos together to help you see what Zico coconut water, Snapple, and Coca Cola, and other drinks with high sugar look like when they are distilled – Are you ready to be shocked?   We all know that sugary drinks are bad for us, but how many of us have ignored that statement? Sometimes we all want to satisfy that sweet tooth! Now that Henry Hargreaves, a food photographer, has captured these images, it may be quite hard to ignore that nutrition label. Hargreaves wanted to create more of a visual for people who thought that a soda here and there is fine. The photographer started by boiling water in each of the bottles and cans, and he left nothing but the colorful “goop” that he poured into different molds. After seeing the following photos, you may stray away from sugary drinks forever!   Coca Cola coke-hh-lollipops   Monster monster-lollipop-sugar-hh The Monster energy drink has a huge sugar problem with a sugar content of a whopping 52 grams!     Jarritos jarritos-hh-lollipops_0 This is a Mexican soda that has approximately 29 grams of sugar.     Mountain Dew mountain-dew-hh-lollipop This is a popular soda that is a favorite of many. But will it be your favorite anymore, especially when you find out it has 77 grams of sugar!   Powerade powerade-hh-lollipop Did you think that a sports drink would make it to the list? While the sugar content isn't as high as most of these drinks, it is still right up there with 37.5 grams.   Vitamin Water vitamin-water-hh-lollipops Say what? Something that we all think is supposed to be healthy for us? It's time for reality, though. This so called "vitamin water" has 33 grams of sugar in each bottle. Clearly they need to change their name!   Source: Shape Do you follow us on Instagram? [caption id="attachment_104005" align="alignnone" width="100"]snapchat code @BodyRockTV[/caption]

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
