PureVia Now Available At Costco

When I originally started on Jorge Cruise’s Belly Fat Cure Program just about a year ago, the large majority of people weren’t yet aware how dangerous sugar can be to the human body. While it’s still arguable how well aware the public is now, it’s considerably more aware now than a year ago. Truvia and PureVia were just hitting the market and most people still unaware the Coca-Cola and Pepsi Cola are the major backers behind the companies that make these Erythritol and Stevia combinations and helped push their rapid approval through the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be used as a sweetener.

A year ago, you’d be just starting to see Truvia and PureVia hitting the shelves of the average supermarket, and now they’re pretty much a guarantee to be seen there. Both are starting to make their way into beverage products made by the respective cola giants although they’re yet to make their way into the cola giant’s diet versions of their signature products. Perhaps one of the signs that things are changing in a good way is that packets of PureVia are now available in the bulk purchasing giant warehouses of Costco.

Amazing Sugar Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sugar Free Chocolate Chip Cookies Made With Hershey's Sugar Free Chocolate ChipsAfter having been on Jorge Cruise’s Belly Fat Cure program for a while, I’d been craving Chocolate Chip cookies. There had to be a way to make sugar free chocolate chip cookies, and probably a better way than chopping up chunks of unsweetened chocolate. Well, Kim Barry, another person who’s been through the Belly Fat Cure program recommended finding Hershey’s Sugar Free Chocolate Chips. Easier said than done.

A Google search for Hershey’s Sugar Free Chocolate chips reveals Wal-Mart carries the chips, but according to their store locator, none of them within 100 miles of me carry any. By plugging in some random cities, it seems that it’s only the Wal-Mart Supercenters that have them, and there’s none of those in San Diego county. I found some various online stores that seem to sell them for about $6 a bag. A bag of the sugar free chocolate chips is only 8 ounces, so that sounds like a complete rip off to me. Plus they also want $6 more just to ship a bag, so I’m sorry, I’m not spending $12 for a half pound of sugar free chocolate chips.
