Food photographer Henry Hargreaves took a creative approach to finding out how much sugar is in different drinks for a project called (De)Hydrate. We start by boiling the refreshment so that the water evaporates and the sugar remains. He then poured the caramel mixture into a lollipop mould the size of a water bottle. This huge sweet treat is designed to give customers a taste. "After recently hearing a health expert refer to soda as the 'cigarette of our generation,' I decided to boil some water and try to see what was in the soda," wrote the author in his YouTube video. “At the end of the day, I think the main thing you get: is candy dressed like soda.”
Instead of looking at the label on the back of the bottle, Hargreaves gives agents real insight into their favourite drinks. With a little research and a creative eye, the photographers have given a new perspective to anyone looking for their next drink in the beverage industry.
