having said that I did NOT know that herbal green tea is not actually green tea. They sure want us consumers to spend all day reading labels, huh? I will have to check on Lipton's version. FYI, I made up a tall container of iced green tea last fall (hey, I live in the south) and I drank it a lot with Splenda added but I got such a strong stomach ache--a real intense burning. I think it was all the caffeine which I don't drink (haven't since 2005). I do see though that Lipton's makes a decaf version so I plan on trying that soon.
If you like a flavored herbal tea I made Celestial Seasonings Wild Berry "something or other" a couple of weeks ago(again brewed it for iced) with some added Splenda. It was FANTASTIC!! It tasted like weak punch but it had taste! LOL I think you could "correct" that by doubling the amount of tea bags used when making up a big "brew".
I am not a big Jello fan but I have since gotten "hooked" on the sugar free varieties. I especially like the black cherry, cherry and orange.
As for husbands, well, you know they are what they are...... once you start losing, then HE will be the one helping you pick out the groceries and making suggestions. He WILL become your biggest fan, just you wait and see.
