$25 Visa Gift Card and Stevia In The Raw Product Giveaway


I was provided with product and a gift card to share information and my personal opinion on these products. 


Whether you love Valentine’s Day or hate it, it’s a day where many of us treat ourselves to our favorite sweet indulgences. This year, thanks to zero-calorie sweetener, Stevia In The Raw®it’s okay to eat your feelings and #SweetYourself—especially when you can indulge with reduced sugar and calorie recipes perfect for the occasion! My favorite recipe to indulge with is these delightful Red Velvet Cupcakes (find recipe below). Stevia in the Raw can be used for so much more. Substitue sugar when you need a sweet treat, or add it to your morning coffee.

From February 1-14, fans can share photos using #SweetYourself and tagging @InTheRaw for the chance to win product samples daily. Plus, one lucky winner will get the ultimate #SweetYourself experience with a $500 Spa Finder gift card.
