NuNaturals Stevia Products Review and Giveaway (Four Winners!)

UPDATE:  This giveaway is now closed. Winners have been announced in a separate post and will be notified via email.

Full disclosure:  NuNaturals provided the products for this review and the giveaway. However, this post is not a paid post and the opinions expressed are strictly my own.

gluten free, dairy free, grain free, refined sugar free, the spunky coconut

I was slow to hop on the stevia train … even for a short ride. I had purchased one bottle of liquid stevia years ago and I would try it from time to time in my tea, but I wasn’t pleased with it. But then a while back, I won a NuNaturals giveaway over at Ricki’s (Diet, Dessert and Dogs). I was very pleased to discover that I really liked the products that I had won. To me, there was no funky aftertaste or bitterness from any of the NuNatural stevia products (liquid or powdered) I tried and I liked having a few packets of their powdered stevia in my purse for that cup of tea out with the girls. More recently, the great folks at NuNaturals gave me an opportunity to try a few of the other products they offer as well—cinnamon sticks, ground cinnamon, vanilla beans, and pure vanilla extract … just to name a few. They were all outstanding! And, of course, more stevia—yippee! I’m not sure I’m on the stevia express yet, as you will still definitely see other sweeteners used in recipes here on gfe, but I like using stevia both as an alternative sweetener, and as a supplemental sweetener in addition to an unrefined sugar like honey or palm sugar when I want to use less sweetener overall.

Here are a few recipes in which I use stevia. Below my recipes are a bunch of other stevia-sweetened recipes from some of my favorite blogger friends. A big part of enjoying stevia in recipes is knowing how to use it—when it will work in a recipe, when it will not, how much to use … too much, too little. You can try some of these recipes to sample stevia-sweetened goodness!

gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, pomegranate, POM, sherbet gfe Lemon-Lime Coconut Basil Ice

Super Juice here on gfe (courtesy of Dr. Christine Doherty)

Ali’s (Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen) Stevia-Sweetened Sugar Cookies (perfect for any holiday celebration or every day treat)

Alisa’s (Go Dairy Free and Alisa Cooks) Cinnamon-Fig Cashew Butter, Mocha Fudge Energy Bites, and Healthy Spicy Mylkshake (I had to share three of Alisa’s recipes; I couldn’t choose one over the other!)

AndreAnna’s (Life As A Plate) Grain-Free Cranberry Almond Cookies (perfect as the paleo/primal or gluten-free sweet treat)

Iris’s (The Daily Dietribe) Mini Red, White, and Blueberry Pies (adorable and delicious—always my favorite combination!) 

Kelly’s (The Spunky Coconut) Vanilla Bean Cake (Kelly’s Vanilla Bean Cake is now famous and deservedly so. I made this amazing cake when I did a review of her second book, The Spunky Coconut: Grain-Free Baked Goods and Desserts. That’s my version at the top of this post.)

Ricki’s (Diet, Dessert and Dogs) Marry Me Brownies, Caramel Ice Cream, Chocolate Whoopie Pies , and Lemon Blueberry Muffins (I know … I’m so mean to give you all of those heavenly recipes to choose from!)

If you reside in the continental U.S. and have never tried NuNaturals before, but would like to try the NuNaturals stevia packets in a “non-committal” way (i.e, free!), NuNaturals will send you a sample—again, it’s free!

  7. Megan R on February 23rd, 2012 6:14 pm

  8. Anne on February 23rd, 2012 6:19 pm

    I have not tried any stevia products yet, but am curious to try them in coffee and baking.

  9. Alisa on February 23rd, 2012 6:24 pm

    Aw shucks, you included all three recipes? I guarantee that you would love them ALL Shirley :)

    I really like NuStevia; good range of products and reliable. I’m using a dissolve tab in my tea right now (yes, I’m sweetening my tea a little – it’s lemon ginger and not the best lemon ginger I’ve tried, it needs help :)

  10. Hillary on February 23rd, 2012 6:29 pm

    I have never tried stevia, but would love to!

  11. Hillary on February 23rd, 2012 6:31 pm

    I also became of fan of NuNaturals on Facebook.

  12. JillAnn on February 23rd, 2012 6:42 pm

    A lady at church gave me a packet of NuStevia, when I realized I was out of the brand I carry. I really liked it! :)

  13. Shannon on February 23rd, 2012 6:44 pm

    Recently learned of stevia in a Nutrition class would love to try it out

  14. S Amick on February 23rd, 2012 6:45 pm

    Oh yummy! I am having a hard time picking just one or two recipes listed above. Maybe because they all look so good. Ok ok, I will pick Kelly’s Vanilla Bean cake, and Alisa’s Mocha Fudge Energy Bites.

    I have not tried NuNaturals yet as I am still trying to stock my GF kitchen. Bless us, in time we will have pantry items stocked for those days when Hubs wants something a little sweet.

  15. AmandaonMaui on February 23rd, 2012 6:51 pm

    I keep reading about NuNatural’s products, and I really wish they were sold in the stores here so that I could get my hands on them more easily. I’ve been interested in trying stevia again. The first time I tried it years ago it was overly sweet and left a weird aftertaste. I’d like to give it another shot, and I’d like to see if I can sneak it past my boyfriend in some of our treats.

  16. Jennifer P on February 23rd, 2012 6:51 pm

    I use NuNaturals stevia packets in my vegan pumpkin pie – yum :)

  17. Susan on February 23rd, 2012 6:54 pm

    I’ve really been trying to find alternatives to refined sugar. I feel sooooo much better without it! I’ve tried regular stevia, but have been disappointed with the results. Can’t wait to try the NuNaturals brand.

  18. katrina on February 23rd, 2012 6:54 pm

    I would like to try one of these for baking. I am ordering a couple of recommend GF cookbooks with recipes that call for such a product! Thanks!!

  19. KarenO on February 23rd, 2012 7:07 pm

    I ‘like’ NuNaturals on fb

  20. KarenO on February 23rd, 2012 7:08 pm

    Would love to try these products! I always carry a packet of stevia in my wallet to use in my beverages at restaurants, etc.

    We have used Stevia, but not NuNaturals. We would love to try it, especially the vanilla, which we have never used. Thanks for the opportunity to win win!

  24. Jacqueline Oglesby-Gilbert on February 23rd, 2012 7:44 pm

    I am all for being healthy! I would enjoy trying all the products!

    I would love to try NuNaturals Stevia Products

  27. Nantucketdaffodil on February 23rd, 2012 8:33 pm

    I know this is off-topic; however, we found your cheese crust pizza on Pinterest and tried it tonight. My 8 yr old daughter was diagnosed with Celiac in my of last yr. She has missed pizza more than anything. FINALLY something that truly satisfies her (and us)!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. I was near tears when she rated it an 11 on a scale of 1-10.

    • Shirley on February 23rd, 2012 8:48 pm

      Hi Nantucketdaffodil–That news is so, so awesome!! Thank you so much for taking the time to share it! I am thrilled for your daughter, you, and your whole family. I believe it’s important to eat gluten free together so finding recipes that work for all is critical. I may cut and paste your comment on the post itself, too, because I want many more folks to know about this recipe. So many are skeptical that a flourless pizza could possibly work and don’t believe it could possibly be good, so please spread the word, and give your daughter a big hug for me, too! :-)

      Shirley

  28. Anna Lee on February 23rd, 2012 8:40 pm

    I would love to try NuNaturals Stevia products as I am currently on a grain free and sugar free diet!

  29. Kelly Smith on February 23rd, 2012 9:09 pm

    I love NuNaturals Stevia – it is my favorite! I need to try Spunky Coconut’s Vanilla Bean Cake; I have not been brave enough to do that yet.

    • Kathy on February 25th, 2012 12:53 am

      Be brave! I got this cake past my VERY judgmental husband and he really did not believe it was made with beans and Stevia. Had I not told him, he would never have known! You will be glad you tried this recipe.

  30. Kelly Smith on February 23rd, 2012 9:11 pm

    I also liked the NuNaturals page on FB and shared your giveaway, Shirley! (But I confess…I would love to win my favorite stevia!) Thanks for sharing the stevia recipes.

  31. Leann on February 23rd, 2012 10:14 pm

    I use stevia for my coffee every day. I’ve not tried NuNaturals and would love to try it. I am very interested in the recipes that use stevia. Thank you for posting them.

  32. Jacqui on February 23rd, 2012 10:29 pm

    I have not used the NuNaturals brand of stevia.. but would love to! I love stevia in a chocolate chia pudding!

  33. Ali on February 23rd, 2012 10:33 pm

    I love this brand, but can’t really afford to get it as much as I would like, so I try to use it sparingly! I would love to win this!

  34. Ali on February 23rd, 2012 10:33 pm

    I liked them on facebook too!

  35. Ali on February 23rd, 2012 10:34 pm

  37. Sara on February 23rd, 2012 10:36 pm

    I have not tried NuNaturals, but it seems to be a popular brand so I would really like to try it.

  38. tanyaci on February 23rd, 2012 10:58 pm

    I have yet to try stevia at all, and the vanilla definitely has me curious.

  39. Kathy on February 23rd, 2012 11:10 pm

    I love NuNaturals. I heard about it over at Amy Green’s blog. I figured if she loved it, I would too. It does not have a bitter aftertaste at all (just as you said Shirley). I use it to sweet my mocha latte (made at home)and sweeten my morning greek yogurt! Thanks for the opportunity Shirley!

  40. lindsey on February 23rd, 2012 11:19 pm

    I really want to try the vanilla stevia in coffee! I’ve heard such great things about nunaturals!

  41. lindsey on February 23rd, 2012 11:19 pm

    And I liked nunaturals on facebook!

  42. Amy on February 24th, 2012 2:29 am

    I started my sugar free journey only a few months ago and have been trying to avoid artificial sweeteners as much as possible. I learned of stevia and have been trying to use it, first in my coffee and now in my baking recipes. I have tried several brands, but I’m struggling to find one that leaves no bitter aftertaste. I would absolutely LOVE to give NuNaturals a try. Thanks for the chance to win!

  43. rachel on February 24th, 2012 3:41 am

    I’ve only heard good things about nunaturals so that is why I want to try them!

  44. Ina Gawne on February 24th, 2012 9:02 am

    Shirley – that cake looks mouth watering delicious! I have never tried Stevia before. I have seen it in the stores – very expensive! Recently, I have been trying coconut sugar – it too is lovely!

  45. Ellen (Gluten Free Diva) on February 24th, 2012 10:06 am

    I was slow to hop on the stevia train too. But after some experimenting, I found it great for gluten free baking, especially when I combine it with Coconut Sugar. I’m not a fan of the taste of it in particular on its’ own, but I love its’ nutritional status and now use it on a regular basis in my baking.

  46. Jessica on February 24th, 2012 10:42 am

    I’ve tried some of Kelly’s other recipes with coconut flour and stevia, so I’m thinking the vanilla bean cake recipe is a must try! Beans!!! Who knew?!?!

  47. Niv on February 24th, 2012 10:43 am

    I have tried the regular stevia and just like you said I am not too fond of the after taste. I would definitely like to try NuNaturals, it’ll be good to have one. Thanks for the giveaway.

  48. Julie R on February 24th, 2012 10:46 am

    I would love to try the cranberry almond cookies! I use stevia from Trader Joe’s, and I have been wanting to try the liquid

  56. Mary Rempp on February 24th, 2012 1:20 pm

    I have used “the pink packets” for years. I would welcome the opportunity to try this stevia product!

  57. AMDeis on February 24th, 2012 1:21 pm

    I plan to try the pomegranate sherbet! I had it on my “bucket list” of things to make, but this post has reminded me that I have not done so yet. :) I use SweetLeaf, but I am ALWAYS open to new brands that might be superior. :)

    Thanks! You are a pioneer!

    I’ve never used any stevia products before and am very interested!

  69. Beth @ Tasty Yummies on February 24th, 2012 1:55 pm

    I have never used Stevia, but I keep meaning to try it. I always put it in my cart and the store, then put it back on the shelf. The price point tends to make me second guess the purchase. I need to get over it :)
    I wanna try it because so many wonderful food bloggers that I really respect, use it and swear by it. OK that’s it, if I don’t win this, I will go buy it! Thanks.

  70. Leese on February 24th, 2012 1:57 pm

    I am a member of a group on yahoo that uses a modified atkins diet to control seizures. A lot of members trade recipes, and it never fails, they want a drop of vanilla stevia, two drops of regular stevia, and another drop of a different flavor.

    I really want to try these recipes to find something edible for the seizure control, but I cannot afford all these bottles of liquid stevia.

    I would dance and sing if I could be one of your winners! ((starting to tap my foot already))

    p.s. If anyone wants to find out more about seizure control and the modified atkins, please let me know here. (Modifier: is there any way to link this message to my email so I can get anything that people reply to mine?)

  71. Liz H. on February 24th, 2012 2:24 pm

    Ooh! I have not tried NuNaturals but have tried other brands of powdered stevia. I really like the idea of a liquid. I think the vanilla would be great as a e in hot cocoa! Wow! Now I really want some!!

  72. Kelly Holderby on February 24th, 2012 2:25 pm

    I have used the alcohol free drops and the vanilla before. Both were great.

  73. Erin on February 24th, 2012 2:26 pm

    I use Stevia everyday, but not this brand. I would like to try it! The sherbet looks awesome!

  74. Desi@ThePalatePeacemaker on February 24th, 2012 2:29 pm

    I use NuNaturals alcohol-free vanilla stevia EVERY SINGLE DAY. I love it so, so, so much. It has been my sweetener of choice for the past year since I’ve been on the ACD. A Godsend! :) Thanks for this giveaway, Shirley!!
    xoxo

  75. Susan on February 24th, 2012 2:36 pm

    I’ve tried almost every brand of stevia out there – I was so excited when I first heard about stevia as an alternative to those chemical sweeteners that are so dangerous. SO…i jumped on the bandwagon and then off very quickly as most left a chemically, strange aftertaste in my mouth.

    THEN I tried NuNaturals. Made all the difference in the world. I LOVE it. No weird after taste, no chemically taste, no bitterness, and it lasts forever. It’s totally worth investing in it. I got mine from iherb.com. I think Kelly at the Spunky Coconut or Amy at Simply Sugar and Gluten Free offer some sort of discount code for first time users.

    Sweet Leaf is a runner up, but not nearly as good as NuNaturals.

    • Shirley on February 24th, 2012 4:35 pm

      Susan–I totally agree with you on chemical sweeteners and NuNaturals! FYI: Many of us bloggers are iHerb affiliates. If anyone wants to order from iHerb, I hope they will consider supporting their favorite blogger by using that blogger’s code via their badge on their website. It’s an easy way to send some love back to the folks whose blogs you read. My badge is currently not up due to a new page that is being added, but my iHerb code for $5 off for new customers is LUT179.

      Thanks!
      Shirley

  76. Anne Y on February 24th, 2012 2:50 pm

    I have tried different brands of stevia and would love to try this one! Thanks for the opportunity!

  77. Suzanne on February 24th, 2012 2:52 pm

    I’ve yet to try stevia & would love this opportunity to win some.

  78. Maria on February 24th, 2012 2:59 pm

    I have not used stevia. As a matter of fact, I was at the health food store and was about to purchase it only to be told by the cashier that she did not like the “bitter” taste. After that I was sold NOT to buy it. I would love to try this brand and actually try baking with it too!

  79. Tabitha James on February 24th, 2012 3:03 pm

    I tried Stevia once for some GF employers I was working for as a personal chef. It left me a little dry in the mouth although the actual stevia leaves from the garden were nice with tea. Now that I find myself in the GF lifestyle I would love to try NuNaturals to see if I could fit them into products to help make things a bit lower in sugar.

  80. Brandae on February 24th, 2012 3:06 pm

    Hi Shirley! Thanks for your sweet email and checking in on my pregnancy – I probably have another week or so before the baby arrives. We’re very excited.
    I love my NuNaturals vanilla drops but haven’t tried their other products. I’d like to bake with the stevia powder. Thanks for the giveaway!

  81. moriah on February 24th, 2012 3:48 pm

    I would love to try the powders as I’ve only used the liquids, which are amazing! Thx 4 the giveaways =)

  82. Amanda Hopper on February 24th, 2012 3:56 pm

    I haven’t used Stevia very much. I do have a bottle of liquid Stevia but it’s not NuNaturals, it’s some other brand. I have been curious about the vanilla stevia so that would be fun to win!

  83. Cindy W. on February 24th, 2012 4:02 pm

    I have never tried this product but I am always open to new ideas.

  84. Debbi Does Dinner Healthy on February 24th, 2012 4:12 pm

    Great giveaway! I haven’t tried it but I keep meaning to, I’ve heard good things about it. Nice discounts too, I’ll check it out, thanks!

  85. Kathleen Conner on February 24th, 2012 4:31 pm

    Hi Shirley,
    I’ve used the powder for ages, but never drifted over to the land of stevia drops. So I am curious!

  91. Susan on February 24th, 2012 4:52 pm

    I’ve never tried Stevia before, but have read about it. Interesting to note that not all stevia products are equal. Would love to win this prize and try it out!

  92. Sharon M. on February 24th, 2012 4:54 pm

    Hi Shirley! I was just in Wegman’s a few hours ago looking at the liquid stevia. I have never tried it and was considering it. I couldn’t bring myself to pay $9.99 for a small botle of the liquid stevia so I opted for some good old honey instead. Hugs,
    Sharon

  93. Mari on February 24th, 2012 5:07 pm

    I would love to win this giveaway! Stevia is expensive, and until recent years, it has had a heavy aftertaste. New methods and formulations have completely changed the product, and made it more palatable. Haven’t used mine in anything but beverages and ice cream, but I hope to bake with it soon. Thanks for the links.

    Have never tried stevia, but am always looking for “natural” ways to replace sugar. Would love to try this product.

  95. Amber on February 24th, 2012 7:01 pm

    Amazing giveaway! And I love your candor here with Stevia. I will have to try this brand. I have mixed feelings with Stevia due to the taste!

    Thanks Shirley. Sharing on my FB page!

    Hugs,

    I would like to try the NuNaturals Stevia products as I had tried several over the years and I wasn’t able to get over the funky aftertaste. I have recently given up refined sugar and am looking for something to sweeten my coffee and other foods.

  97. Esther on February 24th, 2012 8:35 pm

    I would love to try NuNaturals, because just like other readers, didn’t like other brands, so let’s try this one!!! Thank you!!!

  98. Jeanne Goddard on February 24th, 2012 10:46 pm

    I have been using a different brand of stevia for years now. But I’ve been hearing a lot of good stuff about NuNaturals. Can’t wait to try it!

  99. Rachel on February 24th, 2012 11:36 pm

    I love Nu-Naturals! I use the vanilla liquid the most. Really incredible product!

  100. Tessa Domestic Diva on February 25th, 2012 12:04 am

    I have been wanting to try powdered stevia for bit!!

    Been a fan of stevia now for a few years. Use it to make my hot chocolate, smoothies, those rare coffee drinks!! I would really like to start baking with it, and that a vanilla bean cake just may be my maiden voyage!!!!

  104. Lori Rabideaux on February 25th, 2012 12:43 am

    I LOVE Nu Naturals vanilla in my chai. I have been gluten and sugar free about 2 years. I have “liked” Nu naturals and gfe on facebook. I am on a tight budget and would love to win!

  105. Monique on February 25th, 2012 12:47 am

    I’d love to try it and see if it’s as good as you say. I’ve only ever tried stevia once and it was part of a less than tasty supplement powder. I’ve been told to give up all sugars, including my beloved raw honey, so some good stevia sure would help!!!

  106. Shaina on February 25th, 2012 12:52 am

    I love using stevia as a healthy alternative in recipes, but I’m still trying to convince the fam that they will like it.

  107. Colleen M. on February 25th, 2012 1:10 am

    I haven’t tried any of their products, but I have been considering it for some time now. Would love to be a winner!

  108. Heather on February 25th, 2012 2:32 am

    I have used stevia in tea for years, but haven’t tried NuNaturals liquid stuff. The vanilla one sounds yummy. =)

  109. Marissa w on February 25th, 2012 2:44 am

    I’ve never tried nunaturals but this sounds encouraging as my first experience with stevia was much like your own. What a great way to try it out ;) I hope I win!

    I love the vanilla bean cake. I made it once before and my kids loved it.

  112. Heather on February 25th, 2012 10:00 am

    I have used both liquid and powder and use it mostly in small scales baking and in my coffee, love it!

  113. Jordan on February 25th, 2012 10:56 am

    I’ve had NuNaturals in my iced coffee at my favorite cafe, but I’d love to try it in recipes at home!

  115. Lisa Irvine on February 25th, 2012 12:22 pm

    I have tried two different brands of stevia and both had a bad aftertaste! I would love to try this brand. Thanks for this great contest, Shirley!

  116. Nicole on February 25th, 2012 12:24 pm

    I’m on the anti-candida diet (like Ricki was, which is how I found her blog, and then your blog). I’ve been using Stevia for a couple of years now, but only tried NuNaturals when my sister won a giveaway.

    I definitely think that their Stevia is better- a lot less of the bitter taste.

  117. Nicole on February 25th, 2012 12:24 pm

    I also liked NuNaturals on facebook

  118. Ashlee L on February 25th, 2012 1:28 pm

    I’ve never tried Nunaturals before. But I am very health conscious as I have celiac disease and have to ensure that I am using pure gluten free products. Would LOVE to try these!

  119. bitt on February 25th, 2012 3:23 pm

    never tried nunutruals, I’d love to try the vanilla one especially. i just ran out of my other stevia and i need it as I am going on a low sugar diet and might want something sweet.

    I have tried the vanilla sweet leaf Stevia and have been happy with it along with other sweeteners in some baked goods but I don’t like it on it’s own. I would love to try the nunaturals brand to see if it’s any better…I have hrleard alot about it. Thanks!

  122. Sharon on February 25th, 2012 4:08 pm

  123. Anne @ Quick and Easy Cheap and Healthy on February 25th, 2012 5:10 pm

    I’ve recently been experimenting with stevia as well. I love it in my coffee now!

  124. Patsy on February 25th, 2012 5:32 pm

    Had no idea there was different brands of Stevia! I believe I have only tried Stevia in the raw, which is a powder. Will have to get my postage paid envelope going snail mail. Thanks for all your hard work on this blog, I enjoy it!

  125. Maura van der Linden on February 25th, 2012 10:15 pm

    I’m still hunting for a stevia that doesn’t make me hate it because of the bitterness. I’d love to try this brand and see if it’s an improvement over the others I’ve tried.

  126. Mary on February 25th, 2012 10:48 pm

    I can’t wait to try both the cranberry almond cookies and the pomegranate sherbet recipes. I have never tried NuNaturals products before but hope to try their stevia. This giveaway is a wonderful opportunity for four lucky souls to give it a try!

  127. Karen K on February 25th, 2012 11:00 pm

    I love NuNaturals Stevia and use it daily in my tea! I’d love to learn how to use it more in baking and cooking so I am anxious to try your recipes! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  128. Diane M. on February 26th, 2012 4:54 am

    I’ve just started to try stevia in my tea and baking so I’ll have to test out the NuNaturals Stevia, thanks for the recommendation!

    I am going through the difficult process of trying to get sugar out of my kids daily diet. This means learning how to bake snacks and treats using stevia. I would love to have these to try out all my new recipe finds.

  133. SunnyB @ andloveittoo on February 26th, 2012 6:25 pm

    I have not tried NuNaturals, yet! I am a huge stevia fan, but understand that the brand does sometimes make a difference. I will definitely cannot wait to try these.

  134. leann bolster on February 26th, 2012 6:55 pm

    I’m working on decreasing processed foods and sugars and would love to try NuNaturals stevia.

    thank you!

  135. Penny on February 26th, 2012 7:27 pm

    As someone who is allergic to cane sugar, stevia has become a big part of my diet. I would love to try the NuNaturals products!

    I have Candida and have been battling it since 1993. Yours, and your friends I have found through your links have given me food I can truly enjoy the way I did before discovering my issues. Stevia is the only sweetener I used for years for tea lemonade. I have never liked it much. Would love to win and try it, especially in actual recipes!! Thanks for all you do!

  141. Brandy on February 27th, 2012 9:30 pm

    I would LOVE to try the stevia. I am new to Gluten free and healthy eating and would like to try the products…

  142. Theresa on February 27th, 2012 9:44 pm

    I have used Stevia, but never NuNaturals brand. I would love to make the Pomegranate Sherbert soon. Thanks for this giveaway opportunity. I would love to win.
    Also, thanks for such great recipes all the time. I always check my email to see if you have sent anything.

  143. Cindy on February 27th, 2012 10:41 pm

    I would be absolutely delighted to win your contest and try NuNaturals Stevia products. I’m keeping my fingers crossed! My son is vegetarian and I have severe dairy allergies and was recently put on a GF diet. I feel like I have no idea what to cook anymore or how to cook as everything is expensive and hard to find in our small town – vegetarian, DF & GF. Oy!!!

  144. donna g on February 27th, 2012 10:43 pm

    Love it. Both my mom and i use it. Shes been using it for it seems like forever!

  145. Jolie on February 27th, 2012 10:46 pm

    This is the best stevia, hands down! So sweet with no aftertaste. Love it in my morning white tea!

  146. Sharlene on February 27th, 2012 10:49 pm

    You are such an wonderful lady to offer giveaways and you have a very informative website that has helped many. I would love to win the NuNaturals brand of stevia. I have used other brands but never this one. Thanks for all you do!

  150. Shannon Brown on February 27th, 2012 10:57 pm

    I’ve tried a couple of brands of stevia but I’m still on the fence about it. I’ve had things turn bitter because I used a tiny bit too much. I would really like to try NuNaturals to see if it makes me a convert too. (I love vanilla so the vanilla variety sounds like fun.)

  151. jess on February 27th, 2012 11:20 pm

    I have never used the Nunaturals products, and would be excited to try! :)

  152. heather on February 27th, 2012 11:59 pm

    I have used stevia, but not NuNaturals. I would love to try it in the Pomegranate Sherbet

  153. Ann Stark on February 28th, 2012 12:22 am

    I am excited to try this brand – I cook most of my food with stevia but have always used Stevita. The aftertaste bothers some at our family gatheringssoIwould love to try a brand that has a better reputation for taste.

  154. T. Earp on February 28th, 2012 12:57 am

    I have not had NuNaturals but would love to try a drop or two in some hot green tea.

    I would love to try NuNaturals stevia again, I believe I bought some many years back, but at the moment I have a different brand. I don’t have any liquid stevia and so many recipes call for it, so I have been planning to get some next time I am at the right store!

    The first recipe I’d try is definitely kelly’s vanilla bean cake!
