Ok Mike This one's for You CHOCOLATE CREAM PIE!
Ok I was reading a post that Mike made and he was mentioning this sugar alternative called Splenda. He mention a web site that you can all check out @ www.splenda.com. Anyway they have a special icon for reciepes involving this stuff and I had to check it out. Now it seems to me from what I have read that Splenda and Fruitose a product thaqt I had mentioned in the same post as Mike is the same thing. At least the way splenda is described it sounds the same as Fruitose. Anyway, Fruitose can be bought at any grocery store and I'm going to have to get with Mike on Splenda. As far as I know right now, You have to order it from this websight. Anyway here it is and it sounds absolutely SINNFUL.
But I swear, there ain't no fat.
