I checked the Fairway today where I had gotten the original jar of the
sugar-free fiber Apricot jam and found thae only other flavor they had
concord Grape, fine for kids with PB&J, but not to my taste. I
if they will be putting out any more flavos or if the store will be
carrying any more.

My supermarkets (Stop and Shop and Shoprite) regularly carry Polaner and
Smuckers jams sweetened with Splenda. (Smuckers also has some
stevia-sweetened jams.) In addition, the Stop and SHop store brand also
has some Splenda-sweetened jams. I regularly get strawberry, peach,
apricot, seedless blackberry, raspberry, orange marmalade, and blueberry.

I used to eat and thought that I liked the Smuckers. I never eat it
straight up on toast or anything like that. Just a smidge on a peanut
butter sandwich. Then I tried the Crofters all fruit and loved it. Could
not find the Crofters one day so went back to the Smuckers. Found that I
could not eat it at all. Just tasted artificial to me. The Crofters may
well contain fruit juice. Not sure. But since I only have a tiny dab
that matters very little.

I used to like Smuckers when it was sweetened with Equal, but haven't had
any since I couldn't find it without Splenda after awhile.
