My Wal Mart now carries Ez Sweetz!!!

It's located by the Splenda. I paid $5.98 for a 1.05 oz bottle. I hope they continue to carry it. I really do love it for my morning coffee.

I've only used it in coffee and tea. IMO it tastes really good and sweet with no aftertaste.

Just bought a generic liquid sweetener called "sucralose to go" at my local walmart.
Cost was less than 3 dollars for 1.68 fl oz. I was looking for liquid splenda, or ez sweet but this was the only liquid sucralose they had.
They did have liquid truvia, but I have never used truvia so I stuck with what i know.
it tastes fine, and a little goes a long way.

So is EZ Sweet (or any of the others mentioned) better than Splenda? Why?

I believe it is because the powdered splenda has "fillers" which have carbs, where as the liquid splenda does not. If I'm wrong someone will "help" me out

I have a small bottle of liquid stevia from a previous attempt at Atkins and didnt know/remember about the fillers.
So I guess I should keep the packets to when I go to a restaurant for the tea and stick to liquid in house...?

The ez Sweetz bottle is small, you could carry it with you in your purse just as the packets. EZ has no carbs!!

I picked up the "liquid sucralose to go". Is this considered liquid splenda? Looks to be by the nutritional info. They also had liquid truvia and monk fruit, but no e-z sweets. This taste much like the liquid splendex I was using before. It says one squeeze is equal to a tsp. of sugar. I wish they'd put exact measurements so we know how to use it in recipes better.

I saw it the other day, I think I'm going to pick up a bottle for school. Our on-campus coffee shop doesn't keep splenda, and I don't like the other sweeteners, so that would be perfect!

the sucralose to go is a pain because of the squeeze instead of drop measurement. I mean really, how do you measure a squeeze???
The good news is that I have been using it about a week now and I time two quick squeezes for the sweetness level I require. It's pretty much a no brainer at this point.

I did...they only had the liquid one of sachirrine (probably spelled that wrong)
They did have the monk fruit extract, but I forget the name of that stuff. There are plenty more Walmarts around though. Maybe another one will have it. Thanks for your reply.
