The Worst Drinks on the Planet

1. Cranberry Juice Cocktail

Cranberries … are naturally low in sugar, giving them a distinctly tart, astringent, and even unpalatable taste.

2. Chocolate Milk

Chocolate milk isn't the innocuous lunchbox treat we came to love as kids. One 8-ounce bottle of Nesquik has 21 grams of sugar (plus artificial flavors).

3. Orange Drinks

Sunny D isn't actual juice; it's just a mix of water, high fructose corn syrup, and a few token dribbles of juice concentrates, canola oil, and chemicals.

4. Tomato Juice

Regular tomato juices aren't really flavorful on their own, so brands have to load them up with sodium—680 milligrams worth in every Campbell's cup.

5. Shelf-Stable Cold-Pressed Juices

Juices get even worse when they're shelf-stable. To make juices shelf-stable, companies pasteurize the product,which kills remaining semblance of a healthy drink

5. Chocolate Drinks

Brands like Yoo-Hoo are not chocolate milk by the FDA's definition of the term because it's not really milk. The first ingredient listed is water.

7. Shelf-Stable Kombucha

These pasteurized drinks, like those from búcha, kill off all those naturally-occurring beneficial bacteria.

8. Sweet Tea

Some bottled sweet teas, like Gold Peak's Sweet Tea, contain 48 grams of sugar (or 96 percent of your daily value of added sugars) in one bottle.

9. Supersized Coffees

Some bottled sweet teas, like Gold Peak's Sweet Tea, contain 48 grams of sugar (or 96 percent of your daily value of added sugars) in one bottle.

9. Diet Soda

Nearly all popular diet sodas contain aspartame, an artificial sweetener that was initially developed to aid weight loss, but that has recently been found to have the opposite effect.
