Get Healthy__ These Soda Lollipops Are Cool and Scary All At The Same Time
Okay, so at this point you've heard about the negative affects of sugary beverages like teas, juices, and sodas. And while we know grabbing for a bottled water will always be the better option, sometimes you want to pop the top on a guilty pleasure can of soda.
Food Photographer Henry Hargreaves made it his mission to capture just how much sugar goes into your favorite beverage – by boiling it down and making too-big-to-handle lollipops out of the sugar.
"After recently hearing a health professional refer to soda as 'the cigarettes of our generation,' I decided to do an experiment to show what's in soft drinks after the water is boiled away — in other words, dehydrating the hydrator," Hargreaves told Mashable. "Once boiled, I took each remaining substance and poured it into a lollipop mold. After all, I figure that's what you're essentially getting: candy in costume as a soft drink."
That soda might be looking good in these pretty photos, but it isn't looking so good as a drinking option anymore.
