Low-Carb with low-fat version
If you are missing desserts with sugar you can now get them back by using SPLENDA. SPLENDA is made with the sweetening ingredient
sucralose. Socialize is made from sugar, so it tastes like sugar. Better yet, your body doesn't metabolize it as sugar. This means SPLENDA gives you the sweet taste of sugar without carbohydrates or calories. Now you can splurge!! www.SPLENDA.com
