Truvía® natural sweetener Product Review

I have a confession to make, I have been addicted to the same sugar substitute for years- Splenda!  I have tried other brands and everything else seems to have an aftertaste that I can't stand.  I am a sugar substitute snob!  I have never liked another sweetener and it is a hard task to even get me to try another sweetener.  So, when I saw a sample box of Truvia in my Influenster box I'm pretty sure I actually rolled my eyes.  However, I decided to put aside any preconceived notions I may have had about any sweetener that is not my beloved and give it a try.  According to the Truvia website, one packet of Truvia is equal to two teaspoons of sugar.  I love my coffee very sweet and I usually use three packets of Splenda in my morning coffee so I did the same for the Truvia.  In retrospect it was a little too sweet so the next time I tried it I used two packets.  However, I must say that I was presently surprised.  I actually LOVED the Truvia and felt it actually tasted more like real sugar than Splenda.  In fact, I never noticed that Spelnda had an aftertaste until I tried Truvia.  I can honestly say that I have been officially hooked on this product!  My husband loves it too!  In fact, when we went grocery shopping this weekend we actually bought a box.       

Here's the lowdown:

My Initial Impression:  I was hesitant to try.  I did notice however that the product inside the packets looks more like sugar, a little more grainy, than other sweeteners. 

Pros:  Tastes great, you need less product to get the same sweetness as other sweeteners, it's natural!

Cons:  I honestly really couldn't find any flaws.  The price seemed to be comparable to other sweeteners, at least in the store we shop at. 

Final Impression:  I am officially hooked!  I will be using this product from now on.  I still use Splenda when I am out because I have noticed that not a lot of places actually offer it.

Thanks for reading and please stop by again shortly as I will be reviewing the remaining products that I received in my Vox Box.
