    I actually used splenda instead of sugar and I could not tell a difference. Great way to watch your sugar intake. I used pistachios from ARO Pistachios, Inc. just visit www.orandiranch.com and you'll find some great tasting pistachios made with Himalayan pink salt! The good salt!! try them yourself!!
