Fuck it's everywhere. Want a cappuccino with a milk alternative? I guarantee the cafe is using the sweetened kind.

Want a healthy acai bowl at your local bourgeois cafe so you can feel superior to the cretins eating bagels down the street? I guarantee the cafe is using the sweetened kind.

The sticky brown drizzle on your Dragon Roll? There's added sugar in that too.

Your delicious cocktail at the end of a long week (or, if you're dougrr, after your morning constitutional)? You better believe there's added sugar in that, bub.

I'm sweet enough, thank you. Yet when Kim drops the nuke, the cockroaches will ravage my charred corpse for delicious morsels of glucose...

There are basically six primary types of saccharides: three monosaccharides (glucose, fructose, and galactose), and three disaccharides (lactose, maltose, and sucrose). [Note: Polysaccharides, like starches, are chemically different and don't really fit into this post]. But your body can only absorb glucose. So depending on what type of sugar you are digesting, your body ultimately has to convert it to glucose before it can be used for cellular respiration and other bodily functions. These conversions are energetically taxing, and they ultimately lead to spikes in glycogen, which leads to energy crashes, fat deposits, and diabetes.
