This Super-Sweet Dunkin' Order Has Reddit Feeling Ill

Coffee shop chains such as Dunkin' and Starbucks are known for their collections of extra sugary signature drinks. For example, Above Average Coffee took a look into the sugar content of Starbucks' top drinks, finding the top two to be in a close tie for sweetest: The Java Chip Frappuccino Blended Beverage – in a Venti size – contains 80 grams of sugar, a fact confirmed via Starbucks' website – and the Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino Blended Beverage – also in a Venti size – which contains 78 grams of sugar, confirmed via Starbucks' site. Each of these Starbucks beverages will clock in at about 560-570 calories. Whoa! Talk about a sugar rush.

As for Dunkin', the website The Cozy Coffee sampled 10 of the chain's beverages and found the Butter Pecan Swirl to be the sweetest. "An iced coffee with a Butter Pecan Swirl, this sweet, sweet drink will give your dentist a heart attack but definitely make your sweet tooth dance," the article stated. So one could only imagine the dance marathon a sweet tooth would have in response to the super-sweet drink that caught Reddit's attention.

A Redditor sees this Dunkin' drink as a ticket to the dentist

Not only are sweet signature drinks available at Dunkin', Starbucks, and other coffee shops, but there are often also create-your-own drink options, as illustrated by this Dunkin'order. Enter Reddit user Kay Kay, who said in a separate thread that they spent two years as a Dunkin' employee and has posted some surprising Dunkin' concoctions customers have come up with. One such drink, which Kay Kay captions as the "Toothache Special," contains four vanilla bean shots, 15 creams, 15 sugars, and one extra swirl of another ingredient cut off on the ticket. 

The commenters sounded a little nauseated about the extra-sweet drink, with one writing, "And an extra shot of insulin!!" and another saying, "Toothache? That's a first-class ticket to Diabetesville and HeartAttackistan!" (Obviously, experiencing a heart attack or diabetes is no laughing matter, but those jokey comments allude to serious complications related to consuming too much sugar over time.) Still, another commenter couldn't believe this was actually a real order, and a fourth commented, "My stomach hurts looking at this."
