No Wonder!

My dh, BigDaddy, goes for a few days without any of his Sobe Power drinks, and then he goes and buys a case or two and drinks 3-4 bottles per day. We calculated this morning that there is 3/8 cup of sugar in EACH drink! (We're engineering-geek type people and derive great joy from calculating things like that). So if he's drinking 3-4 per day, he's drinking 1-1/8 cup to 1-1/2 cups of sugar per day! No wonder he's addicted to them! He thought it was just the caffeine, but wow - one and a half cups of sugar (in the form of high fructose corn syrup) per day in his drinks alone!

Any way you guys can make them in a homemade version? Like a combo of green tea and sugar free Crystal Light or low-sugar juice in a big pitcher or something?
Because that *is* an awful lot of sugar.

We'll have to see. Fortunately I've always been a water person. I'll drink juice, but I'd almost rather have water most of the time. Now to get dh to do thta!
