Default 100% Natural?

Are there any soft drinks distributed in the U.S.
that use real sugar?


The majority of them by sales volume, which, along
with the huge quantities of soft drinks consumed, is
a major part of the reason why 66% of adults in this
country are obese.

For example, convenience stores here sell "single
serving" soft drinks in a size close to two liters
(1.87, if I recall the conversion correctly), which
"contains enough sugar to cause diabetis in one
dose" (well, not quite, but...).

Only a minority of U.S. soft drink imbibers choose
the artificially sweetened versions.

xanthian, says, snacking on creme filled cookies and
30#/14kg overweight.
