NECTRESSE™ Natural No Calorie Sweetener.

NECTRESSE™ Natural No Calorie Sweetener is a combination of deliciously sweet Monk Fruit Extract blended with other natural sweeteners (erythritol, sugar and molasses) to bring you the rich sweet taste of sugar without all the calories.

 I recently  received this product complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster.  It arrived in my fancy VoxBox along with a bunch of other great natural products.

I gotta be honest, I'm a pretty devoted Stevia fan, so much so that I carry them in my purse so I'm never without them.  This was completely different.  First of all, the little packages are so cute.
They have fun facts on them, and who doesn't love some random trivia?

 The sweetener is monk fruit, something I've never had before, and something I'll  NOT be without again.  It was so yummy, it actually enhanced my iced tea and made it taste even better than my "go-to" Stevia did.

I visited their website to get the firsthand info:

"This was our challenge: Create a
calorie-free sweetener that tastes like
sugar—and do it with no artificial
ingredients. Not an easy task, so we turned
to the place that does sweetness naturally:
nature. We found our inspiration in the
monk fruit, which has been cultivated in
remote mountain regions for hundreds of
years. Turns out, the extract of this little
green melon is perfect for sweetening
foods and beverages because it's 150
times sweeter than sugar without all the
calories. A little goes a long way! The
extract is then blended with other natural
sweeteners to create NECTRESSE™
Sweetener. The result isn't just another
sweetener, but one that is 100% natural
with zero calories per serving and the rich,
sweet taste of sugar. We think it's exactly
what sweet should be."

It's made by the same people who make Splenda, but using completely different processes to achieve a calorie-free sweetener.  It has the rich, sweet taste of sugar, without all of the calories, making it ideal for people who want to reduce added sugar intake—or simply eat a little healthier
