Topic: Found a great Use for Splenda...
Last spring I had lots of really large Ant hills in my yard.
I did not want to use poison on them because the Grand Kids play in the yard.
So, one day I got an Inspiration...
I went down to the grocery store and purchased a large bag of Powdered Splenda.
I heard that Splenda was bad for you because it contains chlorine. Back when I was a Kid my parents used chlordane around the footings of the house to kill ants.
Later, chlordane was discovered to be one of the most hazardous compounds known, to ecosystems and human health. (In the top 10% of the Worst Poisions)
So I sprinkled about 3/4 of a cup of Splenda around one of the Ant Hills, just to see what would happen.
Within minutes the little critters began gathering up the Splenda powder up and started taking it down into their nest.
I checked back in about 5 days and...
Presto... NO ANTS! Just an empty ant hill.
Tryed it again, and again, and again on the other Ant Hills with the same results...
Thought you might like to know about my discovery.
I suggest that your clients try feeding it to ants before they consider using it in their coffee.
