SomerSweet claims that it can be caramelized as well as toasted, frozen, baked, boiled and fried. This product can be found on various websites for approximately $9.00 per 5.29 ounce can.

The Suzanne Somers website seems to often be out of SomerSweet yet it is always promising to restock this product. The website provides no ingredient information or any other information about this product. The website does not have any user testimonials posted either.

    I have been using somersweet for 2 years. It tastes so much better than any other sugar substitute on the market. I have never had issues finding it either. I don’t drink any kind of diet soda due to the after taste but use somersweet in my coffee, ice teas, etc.

    i have been using somersweet for about two years.i was using about two and a half little scoops in my large coffee cup, but my last order seems to be a bad batch.i have to use two regular teaspoons and it is just barely sweet. has any one else had this problem with recent orders. i have e-maile them about this problem but have received no responce.

    Last time I purchased somersweet it came in a different larger container than in the past and the usage stated that it was 1 teas. per equivalent of sugar. ( 1:1 ) This makes it easier to measure out when it comes to cooking. Perhaps that is what happened with your order. . . I was aware of it at the time of purchase.



    Yes, we’ve had the exact same problem. The new batch of Somersweet that we recently bought in the rather inconvenient 16oz cans isn’t NEARLY as sweet as the product was before. We too wondered if we had a bad batch or what?

    I love SomerSweet. I haven’t had any trouble getting it until recently and my husband and I find the taste far superior to any other sugar substitute on the market. We have tried a lot of them. It does caramelize well and I cook with it a lot too. I buy it in bulk. I give it a hearty thumbs up!!!

    Is somersweet avaiable in a brown sugar product?


    Susan Hea

    No. In order for it to be brown it would have to have molasses added to it. That makes it have sugar in it. You could try doing it yourself. It would be a lot less sugar content than if you had just white sugar and molasses (which is what brown sugar is).
