If you can't visualize how much sugar is in your favorite bottled beverage by reading the nutrition label, you'll want to take a look at artist Henry Hargreaves' new project.

To understand just how much of the sweet stuff is in a bottle of soda, sports drink, and coconut water, Hargreaves turned each into a lollipop to compare.

Making the candies was easier than you might think: Hargreaves simply boiled the water out of each beverage and let the resulting syrup cool in a custom silicone mold.

Watch the video below to see how he does it and compare just how much sugar is in each drink.
