Sugar substitute

You probably all know this but I was very excited on the weekend when in Asda I found they were selling Splenda.

Splenda is a sugar substitute which, for those of us trying to lose weight, you can use to cook with. It is derived from natural sugar so I find it doesn't have that aftertase other sweetners do and as said it is fantastic to cook cakes with etc which cuts down the calorie content. I haven't found any other sugar substitutes you can do this with so thought I would let you all know in case you need to substitute sugar at times like I do.

This message honestly does not convey the excitement I felt on the weekend. Boy my life has changed so much!!!!!

I think it tastes fine and use it on my cereal without that awful aftertaste. It is classified the same as an artificial sweetener so therefore no calories. What I like is that you can bake with it as well which is not the case with other artificial sweeteners. I hope you like it.
