Video: Your favourite Christmas coffee could be less than merry for your teeth

After fighting your way through hordes of Christmas shoppers with what feels like a metric ton of Christmas presents, you’d be forgiven for treating yourself to a well-earned soothing coffee in your local high street coffee shop. But what happens when those inviting speciality hot drinks become a regular habit over the Christmas season?

A recent video from Denplan, the UK’s leading dental payment plan provider, has highlighted the staggering sugar content of festive drinks found in many of the popular high street coffee chains – including a specialist hot chocolate that contains up to 24 teaspoons of sugar. If these drinks are accompanied by cakes or other sweet treats, the amount of sugar consumed can double.
