Hi my Freebie Friends! I hope that many of you are very warm today, because here in PA, I am freezing!! I woke up this morning to a 29 degree, wind blowing, and mind numbing cold. It’s October and I usually don’t turn my heat on till November, but today I might have to. What a perfect day for a cup of coffee! I’m going to brew a pot of Seattle’s Best Coffee and use my newto go with it.
Now in my house I don’t use regular sugar. We use Splenda in everything because my best friend who eats me out of house and home is a diabetic. Plus, it’s healthier for you. So seeing this freebie, I checked it out and saw that it was safe for diabetics to use and ordered my sample. That was on August 25th, 2008 and about 2 weeks later the sample showed up at my door. It came in a little tri-fold heavy paper envelope that contained 2 sample packs. Each sample pack is about a teaspoon. The good thing about this sugar is that it’s only 4 calories! The information included on the envelope says that it is made with raw cane sugar and a zero calorie erythritol sweetener. So far I am liking this. So let’s try it in the coffee!
I use one packet to begin with. I usually do 2 or 3 but let’s see. I put one packet in and stir. Oh my goodness, the taste! It tastes really amazing! I so don’t need the extra pack of it. It has a really crisp taste that regular sugar and Splenda doesn't. It tastes very pleasant and has no after taste, which is a big worry. It’s not as sweet as sugar either which is a big plus with me. I hate having sugar be so sweet you feel like you need a teeth cleaning. The real test is trying to eat it with something… That is a very big difference in organic sugars. Grapefruit is the fruit of choice. I sprinkle some on a half of grapefruit and go in for the taste. Awesome!! I really can’t believe that this is not sugar. The taste will wow you. If something can make my grape fruit yummy worthy, well then that is the way to go.
Over all the experience of theis a great one. I like Splenda, but I think I may be changing my mind very soon and switching to this. Each box comes with 250 packets, but they can be kinda pricey though. I couldn’t find this at my local Wal-Mart, even though their site states you can buy it there. I finally found it at Target and it was 14.99. Sometimes the site offers coupons for 2 dollars off, but the it looks like that promotion is now over.
This is something I would buy and recommend though!
