    Oh man that brings back memories. My Papa's wife used to bring that out of the fridge and pour it in our glass of water. Was so good.

    Can you substitute splenda in place of the regular sugar?

    Went to the office today and they had made unsweet tea. YUKK. I took sugar and water, mixed well and put it in the microwave for 1 minute, Wallah! Sugar syrup for good sweet tea.(Actually I used 1 Splenda and a spoon of the syrup, just right.) The other ladies loved it.
