I still like the convenience of this product. It would be great to take on a trip or when going to a restaurant, but I rarely travel and we almost never eat out. I did buy another bottle of Apriva this week because Kroger had it on sale but that will probably be the last one I'll buy. A large bottle of Sweetzfree goes a lot farther for the money, I think.

Apriva sweetener update
I was surprised at how quickly I went through my first bottle of Kroger's Apriva. The label states that it contains 200 servings and a serving is one "squirt". The first day that I used it, I marked the date on the bottom of the bottle so that I could see how long it lasted. It looks like two weeks is about it for me and I only used it to sweeten my coffee. At the most, I drank coffee three or four days per week and I drank three or four cups (mugs) each time that I made coffee for myself. I've been using 4-5 squirts of the sweetener per mug of coffee. If I've done the math correctly, that works out to no more than 160 squirts per bottle, not 200. Also, there were some days when I lost interest and only drank two or three cups and some days when I used less of the sweetener so 160 is being generous. The number of servings in my bottle was probably closer to 120-130. There might be a couple of squeezes left in there after my first cup of coffee this morning but there's not enough that I can hear or feel it sloshing around when I shake the bottle.
