Product Review & Sample Giveaway: nectressé sweetener


This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of NECTRESSE™Sweetener for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


This blahg thing definitely has its perks, and one of those came my way in the mail the other day:

I received an entire 40-count box of NECTRESSE™Sweetenerpackets, a brand-new product from the maker of Splenda! I couldn't wait to try it on a great recipe, which I will eventually do, but since our kitchen is still in flux from our recent prolonged move, I had to settle for a really great cup of coffee. Okay, three.

First, of course, I brewed some French Roast.

Then, I added two packets of nectressé, since the box tells me "each packet provides the same sweetness as two teaspoons of sugar," and that's plenty, right?

Added a little milk...

Et voilá! The perfect cup of coffee!


I took a sip, and noooo... it was not quite perfect. I have a very demanding sweet tooth, I'm afraid, and that French Roast proved rather bitter. So I added two more packets of sweetener, and then, my friends, that cup of coffee was perfect. I had two more in quick succession, which is why I'm wired enough to stay up all night and am writing this post at 0500! (Note: That's from the coffee, of course; there is no caffeine in nectressé.)


I really can't wait to try some actual recipes with this good stuff, which, incidentally, also comes in a canister:

...such as this Peanut Butter Granola (YUM!)

or this tiramisu! Hello, does that not look good?

  • It's got zero calories and can be used in cooking and baking, in all your favorite recipes that call for sugar.
  • It's 150 times sweeter than sugar, so you need less to get the same leve of sweetness in your recipes!
  • It's available NOW in groceries, drug stores, supercenters, and online, with an MSRP of $3.99 for the 40-packet box or $6.99 for the canisters.
  • Lisa Ling is the nectressé spokesperson! Check out this video to see what she has to say about it:


I have to agree with Lisa. I'm not a diabetic, but as someone who has had gastric bypass surgery, I am required to use a sugar substitute. Nectressé really fills the bill! I love that it's made from real fruit and is all natural, but I really love the taste! I think you will, too.
