Truvía® natural sweetener Product Review

Truvia is a natural sweetner, which means that one packet is about the equivalent to 2 teaspoons of sugar. I don't really use sweetners like this anymore, but I have it a go anyway. It tastes great though I did have to reduce my use of it to just half a packet for coffee or tea. I was a kid that experienced a lot of Sweet'N Low, Equal, and Splenda so I remember how awesome it was that Splenda tasted better. It didn't taste as processed as Sweet'N Low (or Equal) and now with Truvia, I feel as though you're going to get the best that you can get with a sweetner.

Though I am making these comparisons I warn that they are not the same as the ones mentioned are artificial sweeteners and Truvia is a natural sweetener since it is stevia based. Sweet'N Low is saccharin based, Splenda is sucralose based, and for general knowledge, Equal is aspartame based. Just keep that in mind if you're ever in the market for a sweetener.

Anyhow, I think it tastes great though just be aware how sweet it can be. Use a little as it goes a long way. Now I'm more of a sugar person as of late, but I do know a lot of people who prefer sweeteners and I just know that they are going to enjoy this one (especially as I will be recommending it to them). It does taste better than some of the others but I admit that there a slight  aftertaste  though it doesn't strike me as bitter. It's kind of a light lingering taste, but it goes away quickly. As I've been writing these blog posts I've been drinking coffee with half a packet and it definitely strikes me as being similar to when I'd drink it with normal sugar. I'd definitely recommend this in lieu of an artificial sweetener.
