Town adds 4TB of sugar to tap water

12 Nov

This soda will leave you less sticky than the sugar water in Pecos County, Texas.

A town in Texas is adding sugar to the tap water in an effort to get more residents to drink water.

They’re adding four tablespoons of sugar for every 8 oz. of water. To compare, a can of Coke has 3 tablespoons in 12 oz.

Can you imagine showering in this sugar water??
