It’s quite difficult to find a form of sugar that a self-proclaimed sweet tooth wouldn’t like. From cookies and brownies to candies and lollipops, they’ll eat just about anything with that sweet sensation.
Sure, everybody knows that it’s not good for them, but you can always just do a few more laps around the block and you should be fine, right? Even something as unhealthy as sugar isn’t necessarily dangerous when eaten in moderation.
Unfortunately, there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to sweets—especially the kind with gelatin in it. Watch this video, called “Over Eten’ Gelatine” by Alina Kneepkens, and you’ll be shocked to find out the truth…
