Lets Talk Sugar….

Between all the Stevias, Truvias, Splendas, and Sun Crystals, it’s hard to find a good sugar to use these days. Having tried most of these I was still disappointed. All I wanted was some pure sugar cane! How hard could that be to find?! While I did finally find what I was looking for, first I’d like to explain why I didn’t care for the other products. Stevia, which is basically a plant that grows sweet leaves, seems healthy and organic enough, however most of it comes from South America, Mexico, California, and Florida costing way too much fossil fuel and biodiesel to reach my home.

Additionally, they state on their website that the leaves used in making this product are not organically grown. Remember, “natural” DOES NOT mean “organic”.
