The Real Food Guide

A Commentary about Sugar by John Oliver


John Oliver's Commentary about SugarI’m a big fan of John Oliver’s commentaries, as evidenced by this previous post about John Oliver vs. the food industry.  And while it may have been more appropriate to show a picture of John Oliver, it was more amusing to me to use the photo I used, and you’ll understand when you watch this video about John Oliver & his thoughts about sugar.

If you’re unfamiliar with what exactly the image is, it is in fact, a ‘Circus Peanut’ – a horribly sweet confection that is marshmallow-y in texture, and each one contains 22g of sugar. Watch and see how John Oliver uses it as a unit of measure.
