Review of OrganicVille's Ketchup

This ketchup tastes amazing! The seasoning is very good.

However, I don't know how refined Agave Nectar is, so I don't know how bad that sugar really is. But I've seen it as a liquid for sale, so I know it's not nearly as bad as the white refined powdered sugar.

I would buy this brand all the time if I could actually find it for sale.

Review of Go Lo's Sugar Free Dark Hazelnut Spread

Since I've stopped eating sugar, I've been wishing for a sugar-free equivalent of Nutella.

So when I saw this spread on sale, I had to try it!

It tasted good, very close to the taste of Nutella. But something was missing: sugar. It is sweetened with Erythritol, which is an artificial sweetener. Artificial sweeteners can be just as bad as refined sugar, because they are a concentrated sweet with no surrounding components to help your body digest sugar (dried fruit, for example is sweet but is wrapped in fibre).

I would prefer if they used a more natural sweetener like apple juice.

Overall, it tastes good, but I wouldn't eat it often.
