Halloween Treats: Giveaway #2 (NuNaturals Stevia)

Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil Giveaway: Open until October 31st

Last February, I received a generous sampling of products from NuNaturals. I often have to turn down offers for review samples because I can't eat most of the products I'm offered. But in this case, I was delighted to give the NuNaturals stevia a chance. I had heard from other bloggers that it was the best brand, and had only tried Sweetleaf before that. Now, I hate to play favorites, and in all honesty, I really love Sweetleaf stevia as well, but the NuNaturals stevia truly does have the best flavor of all the brands I've tried so far. Their vanilla stevia is my particular favorite, which is why I'm happy NuNaturals is offering a giveaway of their vanilla stevia and their white stevia packets to not one, but four of my readers! The vanilla stevia is delicious in hot breakfast cereals, like my quinoa porridge. And while it may seem like a tiny little bottle, you can be assured that it lasts for a long time! I was sent the original sample nine months ago, and only recently ran out. In fact, I was about to go buy more when I was sent another bottle from NuNaturals, along with a generous sampling of their other products, including their Cocoa Extract, which I have to tell you will transform any hot cereal into something amazing.

Update: This giveaway is now closed.

Now what's the deal with the giveaway? Here's how it goes.  Four readers will receive one box of NuNaturals NuStevia Packets (50 count box) and one bottle of NuNaturals Vanilla Stevia Liquid (2 oz. bottle). (Sorry, open to continental U.S. addresses only, no P.O. boxes.)








Here's how you enter: 

  1. Leave a comment telling me if you've tried stevia before, and if so, what your favorite use is for it. 
  2. Post about this giveaway on your blog, on facebook, or on twitter. You can tweet daily for more entries. 
  3. Follow NuNaturals on Facebook, twitter, or both. 
 Lots of ways to enter, 4 winners in all! Leave a comment for every entry so that I can count them all! This giveaway ends on November 1st, 2011. 

What else? NuNaturals also has a FREE SAMPLES program for continental U.S. addresses. To receive free samples of their NuStevia packets, you can send a self-address, stamped #10 envelope to:

I use stevia every day. It's the key ingredient to chocolate breakfast! One sweet potato, 2 tablespoons cacao, 1 fistful of spinach, and 15 drops stevia = best chocolate milkshake ever. <3

I've tried the Trader Joe's kind and I don't love it. I've yet to try this brand. So, I'd give it a whirl.

Meghan said...

I love stevia in my tea; I like it so much more than agave!

Anonymous said...

I use stevia to flavor my coffee, both hot and iced!

aliw515 said...

I use stevia a lot, since my stomach can't handle other sweeteners. I love using it to make gluten free muffins. I also like it in my tea!

I use Stevia in my coffee. I have not baked with it yet. I haven't tried nunaturals yet, I'm glad to hear you liked it!

Heather Collea said...

I use Stevia in my coffee and would love to incorporate more into my baking. I have tried Trader Joe's but found it had a strong after taste. I would love to try another brand!

I'm a HUGE fan of NuNaturals! I use it everyday in my coffee to start my day. It also goes in all my baked goods! Such an incredible product in flavor and quality!

I like to use stevia in my iced coffee, or in my "ice cream" (smoothies with cocoa). When you have a limited diet, it's nice to be able to have a sweet treat :)

I have used stevia before but could not find a brand that wasn't bitter. I only used it in mint iced tea or lemonade. I never could get the hang of cooking with it.

I love NuNaturals Stevia! I use it every day in my iced tea. I also use it when I make yogurt and when I eat oatmeal.

seeks said...

I'm a big fan of stevia. I like using it to sweeten cranberry, lemon, or lime juice. I like using it to sweeten cranberry compote for my yogurt. For my hot breakfast "cereals". I tend to use it as my go-to sweetener, since it's safe for candida diet. Excited for the giveaway! fingers crossed!

I use it every morning in my coffee with dark chocolate almond milk. Yum!

Susan said...

I use a couple of drops of Stevia in my hot tea every day!! It's delish!

Dorie said...

I haven't use Stevia at all but have been wanting to try it for a long time. Not willing to spend money to end up not liking it, then what do I do with it. Love the idea they have a free sample option.

cherring2010@comcast.net said...

i have tried stevia but it seems bitter to me.However, my son who has many food allergies loves it to sweeten his tea.

I love making fat free sorbet in my Vita Mix with frozen fruit, water, and stevia.
Fat free, sweet, creamy goodness that satisfies all my dairy ice cream cravings. Without the dairy, fat or sugar! ;D
Would love to win!

Shani said...

I have never used stevia and am so curious. This would be a great opportunity for me to explore more with baking

Cassie said...

I've tried stevia! I absolutely adore it, especially since I can't have any other sweetner! I haven't tried the liquid kind yet, I almost bought some the other day because I wanted to bake something but the price made me wait!

It seems really simple, but stevia is my favorite in a tall glass of water with 1 squeezed lemon... perfectly sweet lemonade. Or get all crazy with a glass of sparkling water. Love this giveaway! :) Thanks for all the links too.

Stephanie said...

I follow NuNaturals on Facebook! yeah!

I love stevia. After discovering it, I don't know what I'd do without it!! Lately I love putting stevia and almond milk in my coffee or stevia and pomegranate in my plain Greek yogurt..do yummy!

Alta said...

I SO want that cookie. I have only recently tried NuNaturals, and only the powdered variety. Guess I need to try their vanilla to compare to Sweetleaf! I personally am loving Sweetleaf's Butter Toffee variety. Tasty in coffee. Does NuNaturals have a similar product?

Iris said...

Alta, not that I know of. Just the vanilla stevia and the cocoa bean extract. I've tried a couple of Sweetleaf stevia flavors and haven't really liked them, but butter toffee sounds amazing...

Courtney said...

I haven't tried nunaturals before, but I would love to!
