A health group warned about sugar in coffee shop drinks. Many cafes are adding extra sugar to drinks before Christmas. Action on Sugar (AOS) researched over 200 hot drinks. It said some drinks had 23 spoons of sugar. It said people with obesity, diabetes and other health problems should check what they are drinking.

Action On Sugar went to nine cafe chains. The unhealthiest drink was a Starbucks hot chocolate, with 93.7g of sugar and 758 calories - the same as three cans of Coke. Starbucks said it is reducing sugar in all its drinks. AOS said coffee chains should use less sugar. It is a big cause of obesity, type 2 diabetes and tooth decay.
