According to a recent Gallup Poll, about 48% of Americans consume at least 1 glass of soda every day, with 7% reporting drinking 4 or more glasses a day. That is a lot of pop! The Coca Cola brand is worth over $74 billion dollars, $28 billion comes from the sales of soda alone. Coca Cola classic contains 39 grams of refined sugar per serving. This means that the average American consumes 4.9 kilograms or 10.8 pounds of processed sugar a year through soda consumption alone.
