Pure Via® All-Natural Sugar Alternatives {Review & GIVEAWAY}

Trying to cut down the sugar and calories in your diet? Looking for a All-Natural sugar alternative?

I'm not a big sweet tooth, but one of the places I often use regular sugar is in my morning coffee. Did you know just (1) rounded teaspoon equals a whole 24 calories?

Well, Dallas residents, never fear Pure Via® all-natural sweetener is here!

Pure Via® carries a line of zero calorie and lower calorie sweeteners made with extracts from all-natural Stevia plant.

Personally, I jumped on the Stevia (all-natural sweetener made from the Stevia rebaudiana plant) bandwagon years ago, when I tried it in some herbal tea, and got hooked on the naturally sweet flavor of the herb. 

It used to be that you could only find Stevia in select health food stores, but now, thanks to the Whole Earth Sweetener Company, you can find Pure Via® all-natural sweeteners in stores like Target, Albertsons and Costco - Newly Available in the Dallas area!

Launching exclusively in Dallas, Texas,  
Pure Via®'s Turbinado Raw Cane Sugar and Stevia Blend 
has 1/2 the calories of regular sugar

I was excited to try this blend, since I'm a fan of raw cane sugar and it had been a while since I found a stevia sweetener I liked.

Just one packet was plenty to jazz up my coffee and there was no artificial taste at all.


You can use this Raw Cane Sugar & Stevia blend, just like you'd use sugar. It tasted great sprinkled on freshly cut strawberries, on top of oatmeal or anything else you'd sprinkle sugar on.

Knowing that I was only drinking 1/2 the calories I'd usually be drinking, made this all-natural sweetener a win in my book

Pure Via® also makes a zero calorie sweetener, that's a great sugar alternative for people that need to cut out sugar from their diet, like diabetics. Made with the naturally sweet Stevia plant, this baby packs a whopping 2x the sweetening power of sugar - so your money goes further since you can use less. 

Personally, I've never used S&L or Equal because they were way too sweet for me, so I probably won't be buying this zero calorie sweetener, since it's sweetness is a little too intense for me. 

However, if you currently use an artificial sweetener like S&L or Equal and would like to "trade up" to an all-natural, not lab created alternative, I'd suggest giving Pure Via a test run. I have a feeling you'll like it, and it's better for you than all those junky chemical sweeteners.
