Sweet News: Jones Zilch, sweetened with Splenda

Seeing as how I lurve me some Jones Soda, this news just made my Friday! Jones Soda is unveiling a new soda line - Jones Zilch - that features no-calorie beverages. According to the company, the healthier versions are enhanced with 30 percent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C and sweetened with Splenda. They will be available in four-packs and singles in three flavors: Pomegranate, Vanilla Bean and Black Cherry. Jones Zilch has already started to hit some grocery store shelves and will continue to pop up in other locations in the coming weeks and months.

In other good news, today is National Cookie Day. And thanks to our friend sucralose, we can indulge in the sweet treat without major remorse or weight gain. Wooot! Here are a few of my favorite sugar-free cookie recipes, courtesy of Splenda.com.

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
Peanut Butter Cookie Bites

Now, for a little Friday happy, here is a video of the forever-awesome Cookie Monster from Sesame Street. Enjoy!
