Chocolate fans were shocked after discovering the total sugar content inside each Cadbury Flake 99 cone. Cadbury Flake 99 is popular with the British, being enjoyed in parks, gardens and beaches across the country.

If you’re a fan of the sweet tooth, you’ll be surprised to learn that there’s 23 percent sugar in their waffle cone and vanilla ice cream.

According to the product packaging, there is a 20.8g value per cone when you buy a box of four.

And this means that there are about 16.6 g of sugar per 100 ml.

That’s about 18.4 percent of the recommended sugar intake for an adult.

It comes after it was revealed why Flake ice creams are called 99, and it has nothing to do with the price. Social media users were baffled after discovering the sugar content.

One quipped, “(It’s) probably 99.9% sugar with a flake on top.”

And one Twitter user noted that sugar intake would increase if an extra squirt of sauce were added, saying: “A full cone of ice cream, a Flake, and a squirt of sauce come with 23.3g of sugar, nearly six teaspoons in old money. .”

But others didn’t care, with one ice cream fanatic writing: “99 with a flake on a cold day in Suffolk, hell yeah.”

For reference, NHS guidance recommends that free sugars (sugars added to food or drink, and sugars found naturally in honey, syrups and unsweetened fruit and vegetable juices, smoothies and purees) should not account for more than 5%. of your daily calories.

This means that adults should not consume more than 30 grams of “free sugars” per day, or 90 grams of total sugars.

As the NHS website explains: “Sugars are also found naturally in foods such as fruit, vegetables and milk, but there is no need to reduce these types of sugars.

“Note that these are included along with free sugars in the ‘total sugars’ figure you’ll see on food labels.”

Britain’s first ice cream parlors were opened in the 1920s and 1930s by Italian immigrants, many of whom had fought in World War I before moving to Britain.

Early stores included Stefano Arcari at 99 Portobello High Street in Edinburgh and the Dunkerley family store at 99 Wellington Street in Manchester.
