One Krispy Kreme donut has 10 g of sugar and the drink has 62 g.

For instance, the 18th worst drink is listed at 280 calories, which is supposedly equal to 6 Krispy Kreme original glazed doughnuts. The 280 calories sounds about right, but the doughnut equivalent is only about 1.5 Krispy Kreme doughnuts according to this site:

As I mentioned, some of the other slides appear to be equally misleading.
