Artificial Sweetner

Splenda is made from sucralose. I think all of the others will be aspartame based.

Aspartame is in "everything" (well pretty much) with a "diet" sticker on it though. Very hard to avoid!

I will succeed!!!

I agree, it's something that is hard to avoid really. Interesting as I didn't think there was a chance of finding a sweetener without it (not that I'd looked, just thought it would be staple to them all!!!). So yay - splenda from now on then!!!

That made sense to me.... I blame the Bacardi lol. But you would just divide by 2 and count what you use rather than what you would normally use

Haha, oh wish I could be drinking, probably the morphine!

I shall try again. Since Brown Splenda is half splenda and half real sugar, and you only need to use half as much. So therefore it is equal to a quarter of the syns in real brown sugar.
The syns for brown sugar 5 for 28g and divide by 4 so 1.25.
So 28g of Brown Spleda is 1 and a bit syns.

Hope that's better!
