The FDA’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend allotting no more than 10% of your daily calories to added sugars. In a 2,000 calorie diet, this is 20 grams of sugar or a full-size Snickers bar. Added sugars can lead to cavities and heart problems, especially since foods and beverages with a high amount often have little to no nutrition.

Although no bread is going to be as sugary as a bag of cotton candy or Skittles, there are plenty of breads that if you ate two slices are equivalent to eating some candies. 

Making a sandwich with Martin’s Potato Bread will give you more sugar than a Twizzler.

Two slices of this classic will spike your blood sugar more than eating a Twizzler, at 6 grams of sugar vs. 4.7 grams. Since there’s only a gram of fiber per serving, you also won’t be much more filled up than if you’d gone with the red twisty candy.

If you use Martin’s Cinnamon-Raisin Potato Bread, you might want to just swap it for candy.

This bread goes for 7 grams of sugar per slice. Two slices at 14 grams contain more sugar than the 13 grams you’ll find in a Charms bubble gum Blow Pop.

Dave’s Killer Bread in Raisin‘ the Roof has a whopping 6 grams of sugar per slice.

This organic bread that’s filled with omega-3’s still is packed with sugar. Consuming two slices of this cinnamony goodness is like eating a little more than a fun-size caramel and peanut-packed PayDay.
