    Given all the negative publicity about sugar in the last few years, I am amazed that you are still sharing recipes like this one. With 2 cups of sugar, this a very unhealthy choice. Recipes containing dextrose (or no sweetener) would be most welcome.

    We all need some sweetness if our life - everything in moderation I say.
