New Zealand-based food photographer Henry Hargreaves knows (as we all do) that sodas have dangerously high sugar content. Not satisfied with just knowing the facts, he wanted to see it for himself. How? By turning various drinks into lollipops.
After boiling various sodas, Hargreaves was able to separate the water from the sweet syrupy goo. He then poured the caramelised substance into a mold, creating lollipops that visualise the sugar content of drinks like Coke and Snapple. Seeing how he was able to form candies purely out of a can of soft drinks will surely make you rethink your beverage choices.
‘I wanted to illustrate visually a way to see what was in our drinks,” Hargreaves said. ‘I had seen the piles of sugar, but to me that doesn’t mean much as it’s not actually coming from the physical drink. Hence, I wanted to create a lollipop from the drink’.
