Splenda isn't aspartame, it's sucralose. I wouldn't be surprised if it was just an updated version of the same BS story, though.
"Besides, you need sugar too. Particularly when you're dieting."
Love it.
So just drinking water is a no?


LOL "play safe with your young ones, make sure they get sugar every day."

Marge: I hope the children enjoy my special fruit punch.
Lisa: We got the recipe from the Fruit Punch Advisory Board.
Maude: Oh, gosh, I'm sorry. Our boys don't eat sugar.
Marge: But why would the Advisory Board give us bad advice?
