You may think there's no difference between the sugar in a juicy bowl of strawberries and the sugar in a candy bar, and you would be right. But the sugar content is only one component of the food. Each food is delicious in its own way, but you would have to eat a lot more candy bars to satisfy your appetite than strawberries. Strawberries are low in calories and contain fiber, vitamin C and other nutrients essential to your health, while candy bars have a lot of calories and little to no nutrients.

One cup of whole, raw strawberries contains 7 grams of sugar, while one candy bar -- which is usually one serving -- can contain as much as seven times -- or more -- the amount of sugar in 1 cup of strawberries.
