  6. Easy sneezy thanks Joy very delicious! I didn’t have sucanut I used Splenda there is a after taste that Splenda leaves on your tongue. I’m sure their not as tasty as your’s. I haven’t been able to find this sugar replacement in the health food store near us. Did find some however on line I may have to get some that way. If you have a good online distributor let us know…Love ya Aunt Brenda
