Review: Truvía® natural sweetener
So, when Influenster offered a complimentary sample of Truvia Natural Sweetener in their Love Vox Box, I thought this might be the opportunity to drink my coffee without worrying about an ear sprouting up on the my back. (Who doesn't get that mental picture when you hear about lab testing on mice? Is it just me?)
Yesterday morning, I remember waking up, getting the kids up and walking the dogs, and amazingly somewhere in there I started the pot of coffee. I grabbed my box of Truvia and drug butt over to the table. Poured the cup. Opened four packets of Truvia. Added a splash of milk. Sipped. Wow, it was sweet! It was so much like sugar, I didn't need anywhere as much as I used. Then I read up on it. "One packet provides the same sweetness as two teaspoons of sugar." (Note to self: Read the information first.)
Needless to say, this morning I corrected my ratio of Truvia to coffee and enjoyed every last drop without any guilt. This product will replace artificial sweetener in my home and a cannot wait to try it in baking.
