I don't drink anything like soda, sweetened juices (like cranberry), or teas. Cup of coffee in the morning, and then it's water all day long. I can't remember the last time I had soda.

Wikipedia says this: The most common types of high-fructose corn syrup are: HFCS 90 (mostly for making HFCS 55), approximately 90% fructose and 10% glucose
; HFCS 55 (mostly used in soft drinks), approximately 55% fructose and 45% glucose; and HFCS 42 (used in most foods and baked goods), approximately 42% fructose and 58% glucose. Whether it's healthy or not, the cane and honey sweetened colas that I had in NZ several years ago tasted much better than coke.
