Aunt Sally's Praline Lite

My favorite publicist sent me a sample of a new product. A praline made with Swerve. According to the press release" Swerve is the first sugar alternative that looks, tastes, measures, cooks and bakes just like real sugar." As you can see from the package it claims to be have 85% less sugar. Also from the press release "Swerve is a unique combination of ingredients, which have been part of the human diet for thousands of years, naturally occurring in a variety of fruits and vegetables, such as melons, asparagus, corn and citrus, and is derived through a natural enzymatic process. Swerve has zero calories, zero glycemic index, is equal to the sweetness of sugar, has no bitter aftertaste, and does not cause tooth decay, making it the perfect alternative sweetener for a praline. " Check out their website for further info.

I would like to try the base product so I hope it makes it to a local grocery soon

As for the praline it did not seem to have the snap of a regular Sally's. A bit soft but had the right flavor profile and I could detect no off or after tastes. In simple a simple good.
