Pink Saturday - How Sweet It Is

Beverly at How Sweet the Sound hosts Pink Saturday. Pause at her Place to see Plenty of other Pretty Pink items that Precious Pink Participating People are Presenting for your Pleasure.

Remember Jackie Gleason and The Honeymooners? He made the phrase, "How Sweet It Is" famous. However, today I'm thinking about my sweetner, Sweet n Low.



Do you sweeten your coffee? With what?

See you for Blue Monday

Yes, I sweeten my coffee. I use plain ole fashioned white sugar. I know. It's bad. I use it.

Good morning Sally! Yes, I sweeten my coffee with Splenda. Have you ever tried it? Have a wonderful weekend!...Christine

Becky K. said...

Regular sugar for me...but my Mom uses the pink stuff.

Barbara H. said...

Very pink! :-)

I don't use sugar in my coffee any more. I had to stop when I had gestational diabetes with one pregnancy and didn't want to use the artificial stuff while pregnant. I figured once I got used to it I might as well keep up not using it. If only I could have done that with the rest of my sugar addiction!!

I take my coffee black. Started drinking the 'Texas tea' when I entered marriage...always a pot going at the in-laws house.
Makes life much easier and I figure a second slice of cake will even the score:-}
Pretty Pink Day,
Candy

My sweetener of choice is more suited to a Monday post! lol In fact that gives me a good idea for Monday! Thanks!!!
My MIL is a Pink packet gal and my mom is into those new fandangled yellow packets. I guess that just about covers all the packets!

My husband thinks I am weird. I drink my coffee black in the morning and then use cream and reg. sugar in the evening. I need the kick start of black coffee in the morning and at night I think of it as dessert. Cute post. Hugs, Marty

Elizabeth said...

I use old-fashioned sugar! When I am out with my niece and nephews and ask them to pass the sugar, they pass the sweetener because they don't know there's a difference!

raxx a day in the life said...

West Indians use condensed milk in thier coffe, milk infused with sugar!

Marjorie (Molly) Smith said...

I drink coffee milk...lol..alway have always will... no sugar at all. just 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup coffee.
Something my Daddy started me on when I was just old enough to sit at the kitchen table with him at breakfast..

JD said...

I use just a little bit of Splenda..in my coffee, and drink tea either without any sweetner or sometimes just a touch of honey.

Elizabeth-Plain and Simple said...

I don't drink coffee but I enjoyed your post. Thanks for sharing it.

Blessings,
Elizabeth

April said...

I'm not a coffee drinker, but I do love the smell of it!

The Bliss Journey said...

Honey in my tea and Splenda in my coffee along with a flavored creamer. You're pretty sweet yourself....
Have a fab day.

Mimi said...

Wonderful post for this l♥vely Pink Saturday. This is one morning of the week that I sit back, stroll from blog to blog and indulge myself surrounded by my favorite color.

I wish you a blessed weekend filled with sunshine and surrounded by those you l♥ve.

Diane of Crafty Passions said...

Clif said...

Not in my coffee.

Anne Fannie said...

Good morning Sally,
Happy Pink Saturday!
I don't drink coffee but I do use these little pink things in my oatmeal!

Sit-N-Chat said...

Yes, I remember. They were on TV on Saturday nights and my dad would watch and then we'd go get a hamburger. That was our treat for the week. I was blessed with a wonderful family and childhood memories and that is one. I can hear the there song right now...
I use the pink envelope too.

Have a great weekend.

Chandy said...

I forgot that Sweet n' Low packets are pink!

Lovely choice!

Diane @ Four Paws and Co said...

Good one Sally! I was once a pink packet gal, now I go for either brown or white sugar, or plain unsweetened iced tea... (I'm trying to be more healthy. It's so hard sometimes!) ☺ Diane

ps Happy PINK Saturday! ♥

g said...

Ah yes, the little pink packet. I've started to prefer Splenda, though, recently.

I don't sweeten my coffee, and my husband does. So if I take his cup by mistake, it always surprises me!

Have a SWEET Pink Saturday.

Judi said...

Happy Pink Saturday Sally
I use regular sugar in my coffee. I don't use much so I justify...tea I like a little sweeter.

Judi

Jade Creative said...

I use brown sugar in my coffee. Honey in my tea.
Is it pink every Saturday?
Have a great day.

Coloradolady said...

I like a little coffee with my sugar! Bad I know...

tammy said...

I don't drink coffee anymore, but when I did, it was those flavored creamers that I loved. Especially the Irish Cream. In fact, that's part of why I stopped. It ended up being 1/2 cream & 1/2 coffee!

Joyce said...

I prefer the pink but my neurologist says no to all of them so I watch myself carefully. I gave up soda on Dec. 20th (diet soda) and have not had one in 4 months. I have to say I have less headaches and I now sleep like a baby. Of course it is like giving up smoking so I have gained 5 pounds because I can't stop eating. I am always looking for the magic diet short of having my mouth sewn shut for a month:)

susan said...

I am allergic to the stuff--can you believe it? Splenda is fine for me though!

Julie said...

We use sweeten low in coffee and ice tea! Sometimes I cook with it! Have a great PINK day...Julie

Cathy said...

Can't have coffee anymore, but I just left off the sugar and had cream. Now I put honey in my decaf tea.

Blondie's Journal said...

Sally,

What a sweet qustion you ask! I never liked sweets until recently but still do not like them in my coffee or tea. No sugar or cream either. I have so many other alternatives to derive my fat from!

Becky said...

Nice play on pink. I take a tiny bit of coffee with an enormous amount of white sugar and a ton of hazelnut creamer.

Nancy @ La Chambre Rose said...

I use raw sugar which is really the flavor I want more than the coffee. I should be using Splenda! Happy Pink Saturday.

Claudia said...

I don't sweeten my coffee - but I love the pink color! Happy Pink Saturday!

Charli and me said...

Great post! I don't usually put sweetner in my coffee or tea. I just add a little bit of plain old milk.

Running late this week visiting blogs....Hope you had a Happy Pink Saturday ~ Susan
