  1. Good one but am wondering if any of the products have artifical sugar in them.. Sometimes fat free means artificial sugar….

    • Additives vary from product to product. Your safest bet is to check the food label! If you see aspartame or saccharin on the ingredients list, then that product contains artificial sweeteners. Great question!
