The Splenda Brown Sugar Haox

Posted Jul 31 2009 10:38am
When I have oatmeal, I like to have a spoonful of Splenda Brown Sugar in it for that nutty sweet flavor. It's half the sugar content, right? So it's a good choice.

Or so I believed until tonight.

I am almost out of Splenda Brown Sugar and I was at the grocery store, so went to grab a new bag. Out of curiousity, I thought I'd compare labels with the Splenda and normal brown sugar. Surprise! Surprise! Guess what I found out?!

Splenda Brown Sugar
Serving size 1/2 tsp (2g)
Calories 10
Carbs 2g
Sugar 2g

Brown Sugar
Serving size 1 tsp (4g)
Calories 17
Carbs 4g
Sugar 4g

What the heck?! How did I get fooled on something so elementary? I'm kind of pissed at myself for falling for the advertising hype. I've been paying $3.59 for 8oz of Splenda BS then I could have been getting 16oz for $1.66. Do you know how many Goodwill bargains I could have bought?! Dang!
