Sometimes I wish I was the person that got paid to do research like this... I mean, really. Someone just got paid to find out who craved what, and in what year. None the less, it provides me and us with entertainment and "I HATE THOSE!" comments. As you can tell, our sugar intake has gone pretty down in the past 10 years.
