Stuck at Home, the World Is Eating Less Sugar

For years, governments, doctors and celebrity chefs tried and failed to get the world to consume less sugar. Then the pandemic hit.

The global closure of restaurants, sports arenas and cinemas means sugar demand will drop this season for the first time in four decades, according to Czarnikow Group. Drink and confectionery sales at giants including Coca-Cola Co. and Nestle SA have fallen, and while economies start to reopen, it’s unclear how quickly demand will recover as incomes and employment fall.

“Consumption out of home is normally more than what you would now substitute and have at home,” said Ben Seed, an analyst at Czarnikow in London. “If you go to the cinema you would probably quite happily have a liter or maybe more of soda while you watch the film, whereas we just don’t think people would drink a whole liter of soda while watching Netflix.”

It shows how much of what we think we NEED is just... habit.

And the result of options.

One of the reasons for discouraging my kids from going to the movies is first the outrageous ticket prices and second is the huge portions of candy, coated popcorn and supersized sodas.

Mc Donalds was forces to eliminate the dupersized soda but the theater sizes are FAR BIGGER.

I can believe consumption has changed as folks must eat at home during the lockdown. It the same effect I noticed when my family eats at home and why we ,historically, dont eat out. Not even school lunches. Most everything is empty carbs and liaded with added sugar.

Has the 150#per year per person dropped ??
