The answer, by law in the United States, has to be placed on the
coke can itself.
A 12 ounce can of Coca Cola contains 39 grams of sugar.
This converts to 1.37568 ounces. This is roughly a bit more than two tablespoons.
How many grams of sugar is in a single serving of coke?

How many teaspoons of sugar are in coke?
Because there are 39 grams of sugar in a 12 ounce (355 ml) can of Coca-Cola, and sugar is about 4 grams per teaspoon, the calculation is that a can of Coke contains about 10 teaspoons of sugar. However, a can has slightly fewer calories than the equivalent granulated sugar. A can of Coke has 140 calories. Ten teaspoons of sugar is about 150 calories.
