Product Review: Truvia Natural Sweetener

As previously noted in the Freebie Alert I got this Free Sample from And I got two of them at different times which means I mistakenly requested it twice.

I have been trying to change my diet and live a healthier lifestyle so I requested this sample to see if I could find an alternative to sugar to use at home and at work. I like certain things really sweet like my coffee, tea (hot and iced), certain cereals and oatmeal, cookies etc
Growing up around Sweet & Low and Equal which give an overly sweet but bitter disgusting taste in whatever you use it in , it also has an aftertaste.  Splenda has been the only other product I have tried like this.  It does the job but it still has a weird taste and you know it is not real sugar.  And I feel like I use a lot of it to get the taste I want.

I tried a half of a packet which is about a teaspoon, in a bowl of Cheerios where I would normally use 4 or 5 teaspoons of regular sugar. And I was very surprised, I could taste the sweetness but it was not overpowering and although I knew it wasn’t real sugar I didn’t care – it served it’s purpose and I was satisfied.

Today I decided to use the 3 full packets I had left to make some home made iced tea since iced tea is my go to drink besides coffee and water lol.  I used a 1/1/1 recipe: 1 teabag to 1 cup of water to 1 tablespoon of sugar (or 3 packets of Truvia).  Normally I would use about 6 tablespoons of real sugar. I was definitely pleasantly surprised.  The tea was sweet but without any fake tasting sweetness like I would get from Equal or Splenda and there was no lingering aftertaste on my tongue.   And even after adding a few more ice cubes I figured it would be watered down and bland yet it still had a great sweet flavor.

I will definitely be using my coupon tomorrow after work to grab some Truvia spoonable so I can’t start making my own iced tea at home that will be better for me and it will save me money as well.  And I can’t wait to try some of the recipes as well.  Once I do I’ll post pics or video on my social media and be sure to put an update here with the link.
