Truvia Sweetener Review

Have you tried the all natural sweetener from Truvia yet?  I had heard the name once or twice, until I was invited from Crowdtap to take part of a sampling. I must say it tastes like the real thing. I couldn't believe it had zero calories. I used to use Sweet and Lo, but I didn't like the aftertaste much. Truvia had zero aftertaste. It was just like real sugar.

Check out how Truvia is made!

Wow how cool is that!  There are several ways to use and enjoy Truvia. They have packet size, use it by the spoonful, or baking blend.
