This was my new beverage of choice. I read about it on another blog where they said it had no fake sugars and lots of vitamins. I have, as some of you know, an addiction to Dr. Pepper. I have about three a day. I have really wanted to cut back as part of getting in shape and to lose a couple of pounds. I was so excited that I really like this drink. I am hard to please when it comes to drinks. I don't like water with a meal, I have bad reactions to nutrisweet, and I've tried Stevia and it has a wierd taste to me. I absolutely hate the taste of Sweet and Low and all other fake sugars. I'd rather have a little real sugar than alot of fake sugars. I have a friend that actually got really sick and when they finally found out the cause it turned out to be all the formaldehyde in her body from all the diet Coke she was drinking. I just don't think they are good for you. I don't like fake. So as I was drinking my yummy Fuze today, I started reading the label. Only 12 or so calories in the entire bottle, good. Lots of vitamins, good. Sucralose? Sucralose? I looked it up and guess what! It's what's in Splenda. I am very sorry to find this out. I thought I had found my magic drink. Too good to be true. Its going to be much harder to kick the Dr. Pepper habit now.
