Needless to say I bought Strawberry, Grape and a Marshmallow dip for fruit.

I tried the strawberry on my waffle this morning at breakfast--DELICIOUS!

I have seen this in the store before and was quite leery. I may try it now. Let us know how the others taste as well please!

I used the strawberry on my waffle this morning.....no more syrup for me! This was sweet. The consistancy was that of jelly. I was quite surprised by how delicious it was. It was fruity without tasting fake.

See, this is where we differ. Why not just eat natural foods vs. laboratory-concocted atoms/molecules derived FROM those natural foods?

Huh? I can't eat the natural stuff . . . I can't have the carbs or sugars.

I'm kinda scared of sucralose myself.

You can't have the carbs that are in strawberries? Wouldn't the waffles be even worse on carbs?

What's the sucralose Spike?

Sucralose is marketed as Splenda. I dug up a article I read recently about artificial sweetners (aspartame, sucralose and stevia).

In the end I think you are better off having a little real sugar now and then. It basically gets into some studies that have found the stuff can actually make you gain wait because it screws up your stomach enzymes. Its like the margarine vs butter debate...you end up using more margarine to get the butter taste. When you could just use a little butter. There are so many food worries...
just do your best.

Spike and Snelly I agree that for a normal person "a little sugar" is okay, but when I'm as retricted as I am now, I'll take the freebies when I can.

Snelly, yes waffles have carbs, but I can only have 1 waffle if I have something carb and sugar free to put on it. Or I could eat some strawberries....I choose 1 waffle with some everything-free fruit spread.

Everything is bad for you, margerine, butter, eggs, coffee, bacon, aspertame, carbs, sugars, high fructose corn syrup. . . but in moderation it is okay to have these things. I imagine if I consume more sucralose, aspertame, high fructose corn syrup than the average person it would be an issue, but I don't. Diet drinks and sugar free foods are super high in aspertame. But everyone thinks those foods are more healthy and consume loads of that crap. Not me. I'd rather have a couple sips of Richie's soda and my glass of water or milk anyday!

I simply want to consume more food "from the earth" rather than anything man-made or processed, and I'd be a lot better off. I'm also trying to return to a time when I was fit, healthy and eating six small meals a day according to the glycemic index. It's been a slow process getting there because I felt that I needed to devote all of my waking hours to my children, but they're older now, and it's my turn! Besides, I feed them according to this system, and they're the most healthy beings in this house...besides the dogs. And that's pretty bad!

So I'm going to put strawberry preserves on my peanut butter toast, but it will be according to the serving size on the jar - 50 calories for a tablespoon of strawberries, sugar/cane sugar, lemon juice and fruit pectin won't kill me, but that Splenda stuff might! HA!!

I hear ya. This stuff is hard to keep track of. To each their own.

I can't eat those foods anymore. I don't get those choices anymore...even not according to serving size.

I might have to try that. Bring on the Splenda for me :-). I know that when you're seriously watching your sugar intake a little treat like that can be soooo helpful. Good luck with the new food guidelines. It is tough but you will feel so much better in a while. It's amazing how quickly the body will respond in so many ways to eliminating all those "bad" carbs and sugars.

I'm afraid I'm in Angi and Spike's camp here. I'd rather eat a little with real ingredients than a lot with more fake or artificial. On the other hand, if you can't have it, you can't have it. Having lived next door to a diabetic for years in MN--I know some people cannot eat natural...even in small doses. If you can find a product like this one that satisfies your needs and tastes, I think that is great. Not for me but then I don't have any reason not to eat natural other than overindulging and I can do that artificially too. :)
