The UK's most sugary drinks may surprise you

Dusty, white, dangerous and mountainous in quantity, sugar is to the fizzy drink industry what cocaine is to Tony Montana's office.

Last year, the UK managed to chug a whopping 14.8 billion litres of fizzy drinks, slowly reducing teeth to gummy stumps while lining the pockets of soft drink manufacturers –which may be set to change…

As part of the government’s looming sugar tax, which will see a levy on soft drinks with more than 5g of sugar per 100ml, the biggest offenders have been revealed and we'll be honest the most sugartastic actually quite surprised us.

But before you go off and call your mum to tell her she was right all along, cast your eye over this count down of wrongdoers.
