It is such an honor to be contacted and have a collaboration with Carbon Digital, one of the trusted PR agencies in the country, and Merisant Company, a global leader for table-top sweeteners on the launch of its newest product, Sugar Blend

Merisant Company manufactures some of the world’s most-loved sweetener brands such as Equal, Canderel, and Pure Via. With Sugar Blend, it is indeed geared towards becoming the leading provider of “Sweetness that is Healthy for consumers.”

Do you know that sugar ranks number five in the top 20 most commonly consumed food products in Filipino households? It is based the 2013 Food Consumption Survey by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute of Department of Science and Technology (FNRI-DOST). With this information in mind along with the conscious effort to serve and give more value to consumers, Merisant has come up with a versatile and affordable sweetener product that can bring healthy sweetness to our daily food and drinks, and that is Sugar Blend.

The new Sugar Blend can be used for baking, cooking, and sweetening, but what makes it special is it uses only half the amount and even has half the calories based on serving comparison with the regular sugar.  It’s made with sugar and a high-intensity sweetener called sucralose. For one teaspoon only, it can provide sweetness that is equivalent to two teaspoons of sugar. How wonderful!

Sugar Blend can be added in all types of desserts as well as other everyday dishes where sweetness is needed. It also works well with beverages such as coffee, tea, hot chocolate, juices, and other refreshments.

My husband and I only want the best for our family most especially when it comes to preparing delicious and nutritious home-cooked meals. Our kids also prefer sauces and food that are a little sweet. Sometimes we give them treats because we only live once and we don’t want them to be deprived. Afterall, too much of everything is bad. Giving them just the right amount of everything especially sweets and desserts is okay. So know I am going to share a very quick and easy to make Graham Polvoron recipe that my sister-in-law shared to us which family enjoys so much and I hope yours too.


2 cups crushed Graham Crackers
1 cup flour
½ cup Sugar Blend
1 cup melted butter
Add-ons (optional)- dried fruits, nuts, mini marshmallows, mini chocolate candies


1. Toast the flour in a pan with continuous stirring until slightly brown.

2. Mix the toasted flour and crushed Graham crackers together. Sift them to make them finer and separate the lumpy portions to crush them further.

3. Add in Sugar Blend and hot melted butter so that sugar can melt easily. Mix the ingredients thoroughly. Let it cool at room temperature.

4. Once the mixture is cold, you may add dried fruits, nuts, mini marshmallows, mini chocolate candies as you wish. Mix thoroughly.

5. Form into candies using Polvoron molder and wrap in cut cellophane or Japanese paper.

In the original recipe, 1 cup of sugar is required to sweeten the Polvoron mix. With Sugar Blend, I only need to put 1/2 cup which means I only use 1/2 the amount of sugar which is also 50% less calories. Great! Now we can enjoy a healthier Graham Polvoron! Awesome!

In the weeks to come, I will share more recipes using Sugar Blend! If you try this, I hope you can give me your feedback by commenting below! Enjoy!
