Today’s is an exciting post: NuNaturals recently sent me their newest products to try out and they want to share with four readers of my blog!
NuNaturals is the first company to introduce stevia sweetened syrups, and the new products are zero calorie, sugar free, dairy free, vegan, and gluten free.
In case you need a little refresher, stevia is an herb that’s used as an alternative to sugar. It has no calories and a negligible effect on blood sugar. You can read more on the NuNaturals website.
I ripped open the cocoa syrup the day the package arrived on our doorstep, and tried it on a bowl of vanilla ice cream. Sorry I didn’t take a picture for you – it looks just like any other chocolate sauce on a bowl of ice cream. The real question is – does it taste like the name brand chocolate sauce we know and love?
The answer is yes. Actually, the most ringing endorsement I can give the syrup is this: Joel, who does not like chocolate sauce, has been eating the NuNaturals cocoa syrup on his ice cream all week. Like, voluntarily.
I haven’t tried the simple syrup yet … mostly because I haven’t decided how to use it. I’m thinking cocktails …
One more thing before we get into the giveaway – those of you who’ve been around for a while know that last spring, I swore off dieting and started eating whatever I wanted. Truth: what I want often includes sugar. I eat sugar regularly and unapologetically.
But believe me when I say that I still use stevia (NuNaturals’ stevia, specifically) pretty much every day. I like it so much better than sugar for sweetening beverages. I’ve used it regularly in my coffee and tea, and NuNaturals suggested trying their cherry vanilla flavored drops in sparkling water to make “Dr. NuNaturals Cherry Vanilla soda!” I’ve been drinking this pretty much daily, and – well, it isn’t just like Dr. Pepper – BUT it is very tasty and refreshing.
Now here’s the fun part – the giveaway!
NuNaturals would like to give a bottle of each of their new syrups, as well as a bottle of the cherry vanilla flavored stevia drops, a 50 count box of stevia packets, plus a bonus product to four readers. You can enter up to three times.
