Naturals Sweetener Review & Giveaway



I love tea and I drink it at least once a day (normally Chai, but I like a variety of different teas). As long as I can remember I have never used sugar in my tea, I have always used a sweetener. Throughout the years I have tried just about every sweetener on the market. Some of them have funny aftertastes, some of them supposedly increase your chance of getting swine flu and hemorrhoids cancer. Everyday Doctors seem to recommend a new sweetener and discredit another one. I remember being frustrated and thinking "Why on earth isn't there a NATURAL sweetener on the market yet? There seems to be a natural version of everything else". Well, guess what? Now there is a Natural Sweetener!

Naturals™ from the maker of Equal®, provides a tasty new zero-calorie sweetener for those looking people seeking natural products,” says Lael Edelstein, registered dietitian. Naturals™ can be used as a substitute for sugar in coffee, tea and other beverages.  Or, use it on cereal and fruit.  The new sweetener can also be used as a natural alternative when making a variety of recipes that call for sugar.  Each packet (80 per box) sweetens like one teaspoon of sugar.*

Naturals™ is 100% natural and made with a Stevia blend and Monk Fruit. Check out the nutritional information:


Just three ingredients! The Fructose is used as a bulking agent to make it easier to pour and measure according to the Naturals website. China has been using Monk Fruit as a sweetener for hundreds of years and I have always wanted to try it. Naturals sent me an awesome package with a box of Naturals and a cool coffee/tea mug that has a removable spoon. I didn't waste anytime trying it in my morning pick-me-up:


 I used my normal two packets of sweetener per cup of tea. How did it taste? Quite different from the other sweeteners I have used, but in a good way. It makes your tea sweetened but not overly sweet. It definitely tastes more natural and seems to draw out the flavor of the tea. Plus, it doesn't have an aftertaste. I really like it! I have completely switched over to Naturals now for my sweetener. I am hoping that they will have bags and a brown sugar version in the future so that I can use it more in recipes. I am also hoping that it will be available nationwide soon so that all of my readers can try it.

Naturals™ from the maker of Equal® is now available at select retailers in Tampa and Orlando in 80-ct boxes for a suggested retail price of $3.49.  Retail prices may vary by market.*

My goal for this year is to try and make healthier choices and eat more natural foods. This would be a chance to try something new that fits with my goal.
