Truvia Review & Giveaway! - CLOSED

Event's been extended through the 20th to bring you more great companies!
I've always been a purist when it comes to adding sweetener to my coffee! Sure, I'll drink a diet soda on occasion, but I always opted for sugar because I just didn't like the taste of artificial sweeteners in my coffee! I was given the opportunity to try Truvia recently and haven't used sugar since, shaving 130 calories off of my daily calorie consumption! Yeah!

One packet of Truvia™ natural sweetener provides the same sweetness as two teaspoons of sugar and leaves no funny after-taste for me and didn't leave me feeling super-hungry the way artificial sweeteners have in the past! 

Truvia is sweetness born from a leaf, not in a lab. Meet the stevia plant. Stevia is the proud parent of Truvia. People have been sweetening foods and beverages with stevia leaves for hundreds of years. The taste comes from a natural ingredient from the leaves called rebiana.  Rebiana is what gives Truvia™ natural sweetener its clean, honest sweet taste. Simple. Who knew going green could be so good?
You can use Truvia directly in your coffee and tea or sprinkle it on your fruits, but it can also be incorporated into recipes!  Truvia has a handy conversion chart available to make the switch easy!  There are also lots of great recipes to tempt your tastebuds available online!

Sweet Potato Pie with 85% less sugar and 30% fewer calories than traditional full-sugar Sweet Potato Pie!

Buy It!
Truvia is available in stores nationwide in single-serve packets or in spoonable jars for use in your favorite recipes! You can also find amazing recipes online too (including some amazing drinks)!  You can also purchase online from Truvia!

Win It - Giveaway Details!
Truvia would like to send one lucky winner a giveaway prize valued at $50. The prize will consist of a gardening tote and gloves. The totes will be filled with the new Truvia spoonable product (see attached fact sheet) and several boxes of Truvia and printed Truvia recipes (smoothies, cocktails, baked goods, etc.). This giveaway will end on November 2nd at 10:00PM Central! I'll email the winner who will have 48 hours to respond or a new winner will be chosen! (US Only)
