thinking about american portion sizes blows my fucking mind

· · Web · 3 · 3 · 13

yall can get coke in cup sizes that are larger than the family bottles they sell over here

"yeah i'll just have a 5th of a kilo of sugar dissolved in water, thanks"

a tablespoon of sugar is about 13 grams, an apple pie recipe i use is about 4 tablespoons of sugar, meaning that 1 american large soft drink is about 4 apple pies of straight sugar, not counting the fructose in the apples themselves

do yanks even eat stuff thats not just drenched in sugar

@a_lizard there's something called the Team Gulp which is 128oz of soda

@a_lizard ok, this is going to sound like I'm pulling your leg, but I've got a "classic American pie" recipe here with 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar.

But no, no American pie maker I know it's that nuts.

@unlofl thats about twice as much as this recipe asks for

@a_lizard yes, of course. The fried chicken and French fries are drenched in salt, so as to make you thirsty enough for 44oz of mountain dew

@a_lizard I used to work with an exchange student from Germany who was absolutely blown away by the concepts of free refills and those giant squeeze bottles of ketchup.
