It is all about hormones. Sugar creates the pancreas to create a high amount of insulin in the body, but since all glands are interactive with the other, I would imagine that this sudden input of a high amount of insulin to create an imbalance that says to your body's system "it is fight or flight time" and thus your adrenal cortex goes into overdrive, the non-necessary systems shut down and you feel a "rush".
