49% of your daily sugar intake

Today, my wife and I went to see a friend of hers in Beaconsfield. We went into a South African café which name right now escapes me. Among the various drinks on the menu, there was the Grape Fanta, which apparently is rare to find here in the UK, but very popular in South Africa. Out of curiosity, I ordered one. I am not sure I should have had: checking on the can, I saw it has 49% or your daily allowance of sugar. 49%. Half of the maximum you should take for the day. And the taste, you might ask? As the waiter said, "it tastes very blue". You can't be more accurate than, so much so in fact that it is a new great unknown line. Otherwise, I should really think twice about what I order.

Hah, 49%!! The rest of the day you can only have meat...
I have a bit of an unusual sugar disease and this would screw me over completely.
