Great price and small boxes
This works great to keep on the table to sprinkle on your cereal, add to tea or water.
I would buy again if I got the same or lower price next time around.
The Only Sugar Substitute Without The Scary Health Warnings
Splenda is multiple times sweeter than the previous sugar substitutes. Unlike saccharin, Splenda does not have a metallic aftertaste.
Another advantage is that Splenda is stable under heat and can be used for baking.
Good product, but be wary of the hidden calories and carbs
If you want a sweetener for baking, use a liquid Sucralose sweetener.
Tastes great, less filling, no side effects or aftertaste
My understanding of the Splenda technology is that the process starts with what is supposed to be a ‘sugar’ molecule and then ONE atom is replaced with another which makes it impossible to digest so it simply passes through your digestive tract. You get zero calories, good taste and no side effects.
So… what’s not to like? The price? That’s were the wisdom of buying these large but not too heavy Splenda boxes comes from.
I NEVER put anything sweet into my tea or my coffee – a habit I probably developed during those dark, sad, pre-Splenda days – but, when it comes to Cappuccino… it’s a different story. I am reaching for the little yellow packets. A box of these lasts me for a long, long time. When it comes to cooking, the Splenda is calibrated to be the equivalent of sugar by volume. In other words, a cup of Splenda is used whenever the recipe calls for a cop of sugar.
