I have a confession. My daughter and I love coffee. It has to not taste like coffee though. Now you’re how wondering what is going on with those chicks. Well, what we actually like is the taste of the International Coffees, such as French Vanilla. If I don’t have the mix, I use 1 tsp. Sanka, 2 tsp. sugar, and about 2 tsp. of French Vanilla creamer. One day while looking at television, the commercial for Truvia came on. I figured, yeah, yeah, another sweetener that tastes nasty and is going to give me Cancer. Considering I am a huge baker and I love to cook, I figured that I may just try it to see if it at least tasted OK. This is an actual picture out of the cupboard of Truvia that I bought. Remember ya’ll, I’m from the country and I know what good ole’ fattening food is supposed to taste like. You cannot pull the wool over my head when it comes to vittles.
I knew I wasn’t going to waste a whole pan of cookies and needed to try it on a small scale. So, I tried it in place of the sugar for my coffee. The first time, I added too much and my coffee was like syrup. The second day, I cut back a pack and it was perfect. I couldn’t believe it actually tasted good!
Since my daughter was exempt from taking her exams, she has been coming to work with me to help out. She told me Friday that she wanted some coffee. I went in and showed her how to make it with the Sanka and the creamer. I gave her the two packs of Truvia and left. When she came into the office, I asked how her coffee tasted and she said it was just like the mix that we usually use. I asked her if she was sure it tasted good. She thought I had spiked it with something, but I explained to her about it being a natural sweetener. Just FYI, the Truvia hype is not just hype. It’s true. I’m like the boy in the video…I just hope this stuff is okay! Anyways people, check it out and let me know what you think!
Holla at you all later!
