Here is something that I found to be a little ironic and drives home the need for folks to really start to pay more attention to the lables of the food they purchase from grocery stores.
Just on a whim I checked the back of a bag of Splenda Brown Sugar Blend and compared it to a bag of 'regular' brown sugar. The amount of product
vs. the sugar content is reported here just as they appear on the bags. The Splenda, for 1/2 teaspoon of product, has 2g sugars. The normal brown
sugar has 4g of sugar in 1 whole teaspoon.. they have the exact same grams of sugar in them, the normal brown sugar has less chemicals in it.....not
to mention the normal brown sugar was $1.19 per bag and the Splenda was $3.64 per bag.
Can I tell you just how ticked I was once I realized this????
