Videos of what happens behind scenes in fast-food restaurants frequently go viral and are known to create press. Even something as trivial as Chick-fil-A ‘s limonade can cause the audience to swear away their drink — or even the restaurant — for life.
An employee of Chick-fil-A posted a short video (which has since been deleted) to TikTok showing a pitcher of sugar going into a Yellow Liquid Bottle, with the title “This is how much sugar they put in the Chick-fil-A lemonade,” with a queasy emoji. The video has been viewed 2.6 million times since August 4.
“I’m gon have to find another drink then,” one commenter said under the video. “Just another reason not to eat there,” someone else commented.
How much sugar is in Chick-fil-A’s lemonade?
The sugar content in Chick-fil-A’s lemonade is not a trade secret. A 14-ounce serving has 58 grams of carbs (via Yahoo! Sports), which is mostly sugar, as the other two ingredients aren’t exactly loaded with carbs (water and lemons). That’s more sugar than what’s found in Mountain Dew, which has 46 grams in a 12-ounce can (via FatSecret).
