Just got an e-mail from Splenda

Announcing that Splenda Sugar Blend is back. I had to write them and say,

Yuck and double yuck, splenda and sugar? No thanks. Now however if you send me an e-mail that your bringing Splenda Quick Packs back you will have me doing back flips. LOL

I am almost embarrassed to admit that I bought a bunch of them on clearance at Big Lots years ago and never have used them. I guess I really don't know what to do with them. I usually use Sweetzfree + Erythritol for sweetening. I'll have to explore this idea.....

One packet is equivalent to one cup. Low in carbs because it doesn't contain all the fillers

I had a bunch of boxes from that time also and never used them because it was too much trouble. I remembered Kevin saying once that he dumped them all into one container and used them by the tsp. 1 tsp = 1 cup. so I recently did that and it is so convenient to use it that way. It saved me a lot of storage space and I wound up with more than 2 cups which will last awhile using about 1 tsp at a time.

Maybe if enough people wrote them asking to bring back the Quick Packs, they might?............ Ann

I had not seen it, but I had an email about that too.
I also wrote them (can't REPLY to it, you have to send an email, not a reply), and told them they didn't hear any frustrations about the Splenda Blend from ME!
And also requested the quick packs be put back on the market.
Not that I will need any in a very very long time (if ever), as I also stocked up on them big time when they clearanced out at Big Lots! But I didn't tell them that! I know many of you don't have a stockpile, and would like them back.
I also told them they are better for baking than the regular Splenda, and should be marketed or more than just beverages.

Exactly how I had to reply. Maybe if more of us shared our feelings they might bring them back
