56 Percent Of Americans Steal Sweet’N Low

BROOKLYN, N.Y. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A new survey is proving Americans aren’t so sweet and are pretty low indeed.

According to research by Sweet’N Low, 56 percent confess they’ve stolen packets of the sugar substitute from restaurants.

Although 59 percent say they only steal when they run out of packets themselves, 22 percent do it simply because they can.

Here’s the lowdown about Sweet’N Low thiefs:

  • 57 percent are adults between ages 25 and 34 compared to 54 percent of oldsters.

  • 67 percent of people earning more than $75,000 a year steal Sweet’N Low compared to only 47 percent of those earning less than $25,000.

  • Finally, the Northeast U.S. is the No. 1 place for packet pilferage, with 33 percent of Sweet’N Low shoplifters.
