This is absolutely glazy.
Popular TikToker and Food Network Champion Bobby Parrish, known by his username as @FlavCity, has revealed a large cup of Dunkin’s Pumpkin Swirl Frozen Coffee contains as much sugar as 14 glazed donuts — 185 grams, to be precise.
In the video, which has already reached over 2.5 million views, he shows off the large coffee, topped with whipped cream, as he sits in a Dunkin’ store.
“My friends, this is a Pumpkin Swirl Frozen Coffee, who the fu— thought it was a good idea to put this on the menu, because this drink has 185 grams of sugar in here,” Parrish began in the clip.
He then showed a visual of just how much sugar that is equivalent to, as he filled up a small cup with the crystals — 46 teaspoons, he said.
“I’ll give you another perspective,” he continued, pulling out a large box of glazed donuts from the fast-food chain.
“The amount of sugar in there is equal to 14 glazed donuts,” he said. “Plus there’s no pumpkin in here, it’s artificial flavors. There’s 12 mentions of sugar and high fructose corn syrup in here, there’s 930 calories and 194 carbs.”
At the end of the video, Parrish pointed out that many Americans already have type 2 diabetes, or are prediabetic — more than 1 in 3 have prediabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or 96 million Americans.
“If ‘America runs on’ this, we’re f—ed,” the content creator boldly said.
According to Dunkin’s website, there are indeed 185 grams of sugar in the drink when it’s made with whole milk. And the amount of sugar in a single glazed donut from the chain contains 13 grams.
The American Heart Association recommends no more than 25 grams of added sugar per day for women and 36 grams for men.
The Post reached out to Dunkin’ and Parrish for comment.
“My jaw dropped,” gasped on viewer of the viral TikTok video.
Another agreed, wondering, “How is it legal for companies to have this on their menu?”
For some, the pleasure of partaking in their beloved bev outweighed the potential pain, as one wrote, “Life is too short, drink the shake.”
