Ostensibly, this chart from WaPo's Wonkblog is about ranking candy by its sugar content so you can consume the maximum amount of sugar, and it does a fine job of that. But looking at it, all I can think about is how everything north of Gummy Bears coming in at a full 70 percent sugar is so much more alarming than I thought it would be. And just what's going on with Pixie Stix and co., not nailing the full 100? It's literally a bag full of sugar! Is the remaining serving size reserved for the paper you end up eating? You always, always end up eating a buncha paper along with your Pixie Stix.
