In brief: Triglycerides

Soda does not contain triglycerides, and most candies also do not.
They do make the triglycerides in your body go up however. Triglycerides are a combination of a fat backbone with sugars attached to it. When your sugars go up, triglycerides go up. If triglycerides are a problem for you, i suspect your sugar is also an issue. Stop eating sugary snacks. Eat a plant based diet. Read diabesity.
