I am a recovering scientist and lab rat so my thoughts on this product may be warped but here goes. Splenda (sucralose + formulation aides) is approximately 8 times sweeter than plain sugar on a cup by cup basis. A cup of Splenda contains 96 calories. Table sugar as sold in the US contains 770 calories per cup. In the US a sweetener with less than 5 calories per teaspoon is allowed to be called zero calories. Thus the normal Splenda formulation with 2 calories per teaspoon can be called zero calories and if you notice all the calorie information for splenda is based on a per teaspoon basis even if you are using a train hopper car amount to take advantage of the 2 calories per teaspoon equals 0 calories loophole. When you buy the Splenda Sugar blend formulation what do you get??? You get roughly 28 ounces of sugar and roughly 4.5 ounces of Splenda equivalent. Retail sugar goes for roughly 50 cents per pound so $1 for the sugar and retail Splenda probably 75 cents per ounce so in total retail value of the blend is $4.00-$4.50. Therefore it must be assumed that the value of measuring sugar and Splenda separately is roughly $2-$3 per package. As I said convenient but pricey.

First, I want to say that Amazon's prices for Splenda are competitive with those in the supermarkets.

Splenda is a staple at our house. We like the taste of sweet things. I drink it in hot tea all day. I like sugar cane sugar too, but I need to cut calories. With Splenda, I don't notice an aftertaste.

We cook for cooking fun, eating pleasure, and recipe development; and we use Splenda. This recipe is my sister Ruth's. She gave it to me to use in Flavored with Love: Mary Lou's Family and Friends Can Cook. When I finished the second edition, we went to our hometown and had a book signing for Flavored with Love and also for Solomon's Porch: The Story of Ben and Rose. We cooked a large amount of food because we knew this book signing was going to be a reunion. When Ruth suggested making these, I said, "You expect me to take these simple little sugar free muffins --- we made them tiny -- to a book signing?" Since my sister has won a few dozen cooking contests, I was expecting something complicated. (Her husband was diabetic, and now she is. She has become very conscious of the way she sweetens her food.)

"You'll see," she said. She used Splenda. These little muffins stole the show! People ate them fast and first.

When Paul and I developed the recipes for The Collard Patch we used Splenda throughout the book, because it tastes good, dissolves quickly, and saves calories.

I hope you enjoy these muffins and find this review helpful.

The only difference I can see between using this blend and using brown sugar is that you don't get the usual "sugar rush" when you eat the result. Cookies and pies made with this Splenda blend - which does contain some sugar - taste the exactly the same as they did before. Great stuff! And it's gluten-free too.

There is nothing better than a huge baked sweet potato with (real) butter and Splenda Brown Sugar totally covering the butter and sweet potato, makes me want to fix one right now!

I use this on my oatmeal every morning. I can't tell the difference between this and brown sugar. No 'after taste'.

I use this in all my recipes calling for brown sugar. As per the INSTRUCTIONS ON THE PACKAGE, use ONE-HALF the amount called for in the recipe. If the recipe states ONE CUP of brown sugar, you use ONLY ONE-HALF cup of Splenda Brown Sugar Blend. I am not a diabetic but I do have many family members who are and this is a great substitute for "real" brown sugar, even though it does contain part Splenda and part "real" brown sugar.

All the splenda products are good. But I like the ones that are part splenda and part sugar as they are good for baking. Good if you have a diabetic in the house or are trying extra hard to lose weight and are a sugarholic.

I have been using just Splenda and decided to try this combination. Possibly just my imagination but I like this product better.

Splenda contains real sugar, you have to pay attention to the word 'blend' in the title. Yes, diabetics can eat it because it's only half (or less) the blood sugar elevating agent of the same volume of 'real' sugar. It's also why it tastes like 'real' sugar and can be cooked unlike some sugar sustitutes. A lot of non-sucrose-based sweetners are destroyed by heat.

What I've found with this Splenda brown sugar is, even though it's bulked up so that it's supposed to be equivalent in volume to all-sucrose, it's really very, very sweet so I do not substitute it 1:1 for sugar. I use much less than I would real sugar.

It has been mentioned that you only use HALF the Splenda blend than regular brown sugar, which is very cool. The only problem I have run into is when I need brown sugar for volume (making a crust for my rhubarb crunch), half does not work, so I end up using regular brown sugar (rather than double Splenda). Other than that it works like a charm and you can hardly taste the difference!
