    Hi Jak. That sounds delicious. All the things I like. Even though I'm not a diabetic, I'd like to try it.

      Sounds great. My sister is type 2 diabetic so I think I will try this on her and see if she likes it. It looks like something I would like for sure. Thanks

        This does sound good - I love the almond-poppyseed flavor. But, what the heck is Splenda? I'm guessing a sugar substitute. Am I right?

          You got it. It's one of the newest ones on the market. Never tried it but I gather it can be cooked with which beats Equal.

            I like Splenda way better than any other sugar substitute. It measures the same (1 c. splenda = 1 c. sugar) and the taste is very similar to sugar. It's a little spendy, so I mostly only use it in recipes that need to be cooked and still use the pink or blue stuff in tea, coffee, etc.

            They're starting to use it in diet drinks and such now too! Diet Rite Cola is made with it and for my $$ tastes MUCH better than either if the Big Guys' diet cola.
