We here in Ireland love our sweets. In fact, we probably consume more sugar than most of us are even aware of. According to the latest World Atlas international food consummation study, Ireland is ranked 4th in the average individual sugar consumption index. The typical Irish citizen consumes 96.70 GMS of sugar per day, trailing only the Netherlands at 102.50 GMS, Germany at 102.90 GMS and the Americans at a whopping 126.40 GMS per day. While these statistics certainly aren’t great for our waistline, the top four sugar consumers have more than their sweet tooth in common. All four of these countries have a history of quality confectionery manufacturing.
