12 Shocking Sugary Snacks to Watch Out For

Although you can't always taste it, most food has sugar in it.

Unless it's a dessert, I usually don't think twice about a rush of sugar. But many snacks -- even savory snacks -- contain sugar and those empty calories can sneak up on you.

The recommended daily sugar intake for a non-diabetic adult is around 30-40 grams. So, really, anything more than 15 grams of sugar should be considered "dessert." But that's not always the case.

Because sugar is one of the biggest contributors to obesity, you should pay attention to your sugar intake in everyday food. 

Check out these snacks that you might not have known are packed with huge amounts of fructose.
