FYI, Costco now selling Kirkland branded Sucralose (Splenda) sweetner packets

I was in Costco yesterday and noticed for the first time that they are now selling Kirkland Sucralose sweetner packets, the yellow packets. The box held 1500 packets and was $12.99, IIRC. I have not seen these before. I usually buy the 1000 packet box of Splenda when I have one of the $4 off coupons, but I think this is cheaper than that because it is 1500 as opposed to 1000. A box usually lasts me for a year or more, so I may not need one of these soon, but I thought I would mention it for any of you fake sugar users. I haven't noticed store brands of Splenda, till now, but I used to buy generic Nutrasweet packets before I switched.

sucralose (Splenda) is actually a sucrose molecule where two OH groups are traded out to 2 Cl groups.

You know, Costco may have also had one, but I haven't seen it before now. This one was on an end-cap, so that is why I noticed it. We will probably be seeing grocery stores with private label brands, too, just like the Nutrasweet.
