*ENDED* Truvia Giveaway!

I recently started dieting. It's always such a nasty word, and the mere thought of dieting sends my sweet tooth into hysterics. I've always been a cake and candy girl, so on a daily basis I have to have something sweet to satisfy me. I don't like diet sodas, sugar free chocolate is dangerous to the intestines, and all the fake sweeteners out there... yuck!

When I first heard about Truvia (tru-VEE-yuh)I was honestly excited. I knew all about the stevia plant, but also knew that it can be hard to find unless you're willing to scour the local health food store. But now we have Truvia! It's made from the stevia plant, but without the funky after taste stevia was known for. It's readily available on all the major store shelves, it has ZERO calories, and... oh yea, the most important part. It tastes fantastic!!

My first time trying Truvia was in a cup of tea. It was good, but hey, it's just tea right? Next time I used it in my coffee. PERFECT! Then I got braver and put it on cereal. It made my unsweetened Cheerios taste so sweet and yummy! Then the big test. My family has made strawberry shortcake ever since I can remember. The strawberries are simple, but, by far, the most important part. It's easy, you just slice up fresh strawberries, add sugar, and let it all marinate until you have a beautifully scrumptious strawberry topping. So, for Valentine's Day I made an ultra light version of my family's decadent shortcake. I used angel food cake as the base, and the strawberries were mixed with Truvia. Now, because the sweetness of Truvia far outweighs that of sugar I used less than normal, so I didn't know how the ratio would work out. It was so delectable! The berries were perfectly sweet, and even though I knew there was no sugar, I couldn't tell a difference in the taste!

Looks like a great product but I could not find any stores within a hundred miles of me that carry the product

Looks like only the Homeland stores in Catoosa and Pryor carry it. There might be some in Tulsa, but it didn't pick them up, since it is markedly further away!
