#8 Minute Maid

104 calories, 26.8 grams of sugar per 8 fluid ounces

At 104 calories per 8 fluid ounces, this drink has about the same number of calories and about the same amount of sugar as some of its competitors, but rather than coming from cane sugar, Minute Maid derives its sweetness from corn syrup. At only 3% juice, this is more "lightly lemon-scented corn syrup-water" than it is lemonade. “When you see high fructose corn syrup in the ingredient list, ditch it,” Dr. Verma says. “You know the foods are not real, whole, or fresh, but processed, and usually laden with preservatives and additives.”
