Most commercial tomato sauces have sugar (or an alternate sweetener) added to them. Even home Italian chefs will often toss in a pinch, but not more, of sugar. Americans, as a whole, are addicted to sweet things and have come to expect everything to be sweetened. Kind of gross, but that's probably why the South Beach people did that to your pizza.

But it's a diet food. Can't they just... ARG!!!

I also don't understand why "no carb tea" can't just have no sugar in it and not sweetner, or atleast there be an option with no sweetness! *rantrantrant*

That's called "unsweetened" tea. You can find it occasionally, but only under that name because everyone assumes it's sweetened. Restaurant type places used to have that on tap a lot more frequently that I think they do now, sadly. I'm more sad that places replaced their lemonade with "lemonade light", because I used to just get the regular lemonade and water it down so it wasn't too syrupy. Now, if I do that, it still tastes like artificial yuck.

And that's why I've found the one brand of pasta sauce with no sugar. *grumble* (There's more than one brand, I guess, but only one widely available, and even some of the natural food brands have sugar.)

The Classico has no sugar, which is nice because at least around here, it's the one with the most varieties and is on sale a lot. :)

yup, that's the one I buy. Also, I like it because it comes in actual mason jars, so I save them to store dry legumes and rice and things. Then all my storage containers are the same size with the same lids and not ugly. :)

As does the generic brand from Market Basket (both come in Mason Jars & contain no sugar)

This is why I love love love the Oregon Chai "Slightly Sweet" variety, as opposed to the sugar-free version with Splenda. All they did was take the sugar out.

I worry, often, that "Slightly Sweet" will vanish in favor of the sugar-free variety (which is actually much more recent of an invention) someday.

Honest Tea is also good like that, in the bottled iced tea universe. Especially that tasty cinnamon flavor that I can hardly ever find.

I'm a big fan of both. The slightly sweet is also the right abount of sweet. The normal is WAY too sweet.

I love honest tea, but it doesnt' really comein vats. makes more sense to make my own.

Ooooh! I didn't know about the "Slightly Sweet" Oregon Chai.

I have been getting the low-sugar, not no sugar, not replace it with artificial crap, Smuckers strawberry preserves for years, along with my Simply Jif, less sugar and less sodium but still creamy peanut butter. That gives me hope that such lower-sugar options can remain on the shelves for the foreseeable future.

BWAHAHAHAHAAHA! That's a dastardly thing to do. I'll have to remember that...
