My 24th Saturday Photo Hunt

This Week's Theme: Fake
More Saturday Photo Hunt Submissions
SPH Headquarters
This is the Wal-Mart version of Splenda. We've been using it for about a year in our tea (I KNOW, GASP!). It's a great alternative to sugar Especially since my children LOVE sweet tea. I don't even recognize the difference anymore. In fact, sometimes when I drink real sweet tea, sometimes it's too sweet. I like this FAKE stuff myself! How 'bout you?

Giggle...now why didn't I tihnk of that! I'm all about the fake sweets too!

PowersTwinB said...

I bet this a lot cheaper than the Splena brand too! Good idea for the theme too! Thanks for visiting my hunt photo tonight!

Can't remember how I found you as I jumped from blog to blog, waiting for my kids to go to sleep, but I enjoyed your site.

Thanks for the tip about the sweetener; I'll look for it.

Jose said...

I'm going to have to try it now. Looks good, I cannot take unsweetned tea.

Linda said...

I'm not hunting this weekend as I'm off to my grandson's birthday tomorrow and won't have time to be on the computer but I wanted to stop by and say that you did a lovely job with the week's theme of "Fake". I may have to try this out as Splenda is so darned expensive but I use it all the time.

Incog & Nito said...

No sugar for me (fake or real). Prefer my tea and coffee without it!! Happy weekend.

Amber said...

That is what I call FAKE!

Neila said...

I am not a big fan of sweet tea, but I know what you mean about too sweet. I can't drink regular root beer or regular Dr. Pepper - it has to be diet!

I am actually participating today! Woo hoo! Happy Saturday!

Gattina said...

Good idea ! too much sugar is not very good for the health.

tegdirb92 said...

I prefer the fake stuff too. I've never seen a WalMart brand--I'll have to look out for it . Have a great weekend.

Mama Bear June said...

No, no fake sugar. Yuck. ;-) FAKE Photo Hunt

CRIZ LAI said...

So sweet and yet so artificial. Great idea for the theme. Happy 070707 and a Happy Weekend :) http://crizlai.blogspot.com/2007/07/photo-hunters-fake.html

Lynn said...

Sometimes I use 'fake' sugar too especially when I was pregnant. Have a great weekend! :)

Biker Betty said...

I've never tried "fake" sugar. I should, as I need to cut back on the real stuff. Great idea for this week.

Happy Saturday, Biker Betty :)

I haven't seen this at our Walmart, but then I haven't gone to the grocery section very often. We use the Splenda because my mom is diabetic.

ipanema said...

I've tried other sweeteners. I used this too.

PastorMac's Ann said...

I thought about using a picture of a sugar substitute but couldn't find any in the house so I had to go in a different direction. Nice choice for The Hunt.

Zsolt said...

I guess there are too many fake things in our foods!

Amazing Gracie said...

We only use Splenda but from a health standpoint, sometimes I wonder...
Now, on that joyful note,

FRIDAY'S CHILD said...

How good is it really? I'll try to find it over here in our grocery stores.
Thanks for the visit.

Connie said...

Great photo for today's theme.

Take care,
Connie
My photo is up.

pat said...

Great choice for the theme this week. I have never tried this - only use the real stuff. :-)

Happy Weekend.

Hootin'Anni said...

How clever. Boy, I had a tough time coming up with something fake. Y'all seem to make it look so easy for the theme. Around here, Equate is the Wal Mart brand. [I THiNK!!]

Happy Hunting.

Misslionheart said...

Full-fat sugar for me!

Renee said...

I've never even tried the fake stuff, thats a great shot of it though.

Mine is up too.

Karen said...

I've been afraid to try Splenda. If you go to my fake photo today, you'll find out why.

Becky L said...

I use Splenda all the time. is the walmart version really as good? Maybe I'll switch to that b/c of the $$

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

i use the pink stuff in my tea, not sugar. but in coffee i use sugar, go figure!

smiles, bee

Heart of Rachel said...

I don't think we have that one here. I like my tea with a bit of sugar too. Thanks for the visit.

Holly said...

I love Splenda, I guess I never realized Wal-Mart had their own version of it, I'll have to look for it the next time I do and give it a try! My entry is HERE if you'd like to visit me.

lissa said...

Something new to try, thanks for sharing

Melissa said...

Great job! Happy Saturday!

Comedy + said...

Not participating, but wanted to comment. I use sweet and low in everything, so I agree. Once you get used to the fake stuff the real stuff is way to sweet. Have a great weekend. :)

Morgen said...

Bessie swears by Splenda, but to me it tastes FAKE
so it's quite apprapro for today's photo hunters!
cheers!

Cats~Goats~Quotes said...

Great Fake for folks that use sugar!
I quit using when I quit smoking. Thought I wouldn't gain weight *lol*
Happy Hunting!

Patricia said...

Don't tell my daughter, but I have used faked sugar in some of the sweet tea I have made here, too. She hasn't even noticed! Excellent choice for fake! And thank you so much for visiting and commenting at Pollywog Creek. I really do appreciate it. Hope your weekend is perfectly delightful! Be blessed!

Nancy said...

aaahhhhhhhh, fake sweetener... now if they could come out with a fake chocolate that had no calories, suppressed appetites and tasted as good as the real thing... then that would be a WINNER! hehe!

Great take in the fake theme!

It's true that you get used to the taste of the fake stuff. That's the reason I drink Diet Coke as opposed to Coke- it's the flavor- not that I have to lose 30 pounds or anything.

MommyBa said...

Pretty good shot for your fake stuff :)

Here's mine:

Teena said...

Fake sugar! Yes!! You could have used that pic for last week's theme too!

Thanks for stopping by mine :)

Nikki said...

Cool Blog! I'm glad I stopped in!

MonkeyWong said...

Very sweet and yet very fake! :P
