Can eating too many sweets cause pimples?

I overslept this morning and came downstairs to find that my teenage stepson had given my five-year-old a Twinkie for breakfast, since we bought a box of them at Wal-Mart last night for the sake of nostalgia. He'd eaten a Twinkie and a cupcake himself, along with a Coke and a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, which is his favorite cereal. Then he wanted to bake brownies, which I allowed because it's a cold and drizzly day outside. I cut my daughter off from sweets till after supper tonight after she licked the batter spoon and had a warm brownie--I Couldn't in all fairness deny her that because the house smelled so good. My stepson isn't concerned with putting on weight because he's finally reaching a normal size and height for his age, but I told him that eating too many sweets will cause him to get pimples, which is a big concern of his at the moment. I seem to remember that from wen I was a teenager, but I wanted to check and make sure it was true. If it is, are there any Web sites I can show him to prove it?
