I like to think of it the other way around--high reward, sugary foods aren't like cocaine--cocaine and other drugs hack the reward system that developed because it gave our ancestors some survival advantage. Sugar also hacks it because modern processing makes it readily available.

Equating sugar with cocaine is fun, but also risks giving fuel to people who already want to burn down the low-carb bandwagon.
