Sweetness from a sweet

I’m a pretty healthy person.  I eat breakfast every morning, and multiple servings of fruits and vegetables throughout the day.  I abstain from soda, and I avoid processed/packaged ‘food’.  But.  I do consume some ‘not-so-healthy’ things – and one such item is artificial sweetener.

I have several packets of sweetener every day.  (Usually in coffee or tea.)  The product is so integrated into my beverage routines that I don’t even think twice about it.  I just take a packet (or two), tear it (them) open, pour out the contents, and throw the tiny package(s) away.  Done and done.

For whatever reason, tonight as I ripped into a small pouch of laboratory-derived sweetness, I looked (really looked) at the packaging – and was delighted to find a lovely little note written on the back of it.  Curious, I looked at a few more packets – and saw that they all contained different messages!  Here’s a sample of the positive notes:

And here’s a close-up of my favorite:

Yet another example of a product favoring both function and form.  Wonderful.

    Sweet sayings. I can see why you enjoyed finding them and documenting them.

    Not sure you should be ingesting the lab derived stuff, though. Did you read the ingredients? or just the cute sayings??
    I occasionally nag my DIL about this very issue. But don’t want to be a sourpuss and rain on your sweet discovery.


  2. Oh my goodness, those are so cute! 🙂 That last quote is a wonderful bit of wisdom.


  3. Awesome! Sweetness inside AND out of the packet! 🙂

    Here’s a challenge – use honey or one of the natural plant sweeteners in place of the lab stuff for a week and write your own little sweet notes. I’d love to read them!

      I’m definitely up for writing my own sweet notes… but I can’t bring myself to consume liquid calories (except for milk)…So I’m torn. 😦 I figure if I don’t drink soda, and I don’t eat processed foods, a few packets of sweetener each day isn’t *that* bad – is it?? :{

    Why no liquid calories? Just curious . . .
