I Found @EqualCanada at Walmart #cbias shop

I’ve done it again, I accepted the challenge from Collective Bias to find Equal Sweetener at Walmart. This sounds very simple but it wasn’t so straight forward this time.  There’s a new box of Equal Sweetener available, it’s a large yellow container which is great for storage and makes for less waste and it’s on Rollback at Walmart right now for $7.97 instead of $9.97.

Knowing that it’s a pain to bring our lovely daughters shopping with us, Hubby and I called in the big guns.

Chelsea is our girls favorite person in the World and we knew they’d be jazzed to have her babysit!

Within minutes of her arrival the girls had forgotten we existed and off we went.

Walmart was quiet, it was 7pm and a few days after Valentines so I wasn’t very surprised.

What did surprise me was the number of products on Rollback, apparently there were thousands!




I swear I heard Hubby do an inward groan as he saw my eyes light up, perhaps he’d actually thought we’d be in and out quickly….without the kids? Not going to happen!

Our shopping trip included stops in almost every department!

I managed to get my daughters 4 pairs of pants for $4 each, pj’s for $5 and oh yes of course I picked up some rose shaped soap on sale…who doesn’t need rose shaped soap??



It wasn’t simple to find the Equal box, in fact there was no Equal to be found in the baking aisle at all. I found a clerk and she had no idea…things were looking grim when she suggested we try in the Pharmacy.

Of course, the Pharmacy???

Strange as it sounds, that’s where we found the Equal Sucralose Sweetener in the yellow box that can be used exactly like you would sugar.

I’ve never used Equal for a recipe but part of this challenge was to go to the Walmart Meal Solutions App on Facebook and make a recipe using Equal instead of sugar.

My daughters and I looked around the recipes and decided upon the Morning Sunrise Smoothie.

SmoothieYou’ll need:

  • 1 6-ounce carton YOPLAIT Original French Vanilla Yogurt (I used Yoplait Source Vanilla)
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons sugar or honey (we used Equal)
  • 2 cups orange juice, chilled
  • 1 cup Honey Nut Cheerios®
  • They didn’t mention it in the list but you’ll also need frozen strawberries, we used 2 cups
How to make it:
PREP: / COOK: 10 minutes / SERVES: 4
  • In a blender combine orange juice, strawberries, yogurt, and sugar or honey. Cover and blend until smooth.
  • Divide blended mixture among 4 glasses. Top each with Honey Nut Cheerios®.
Here’s a good idea:
Combine orange juice, yogurt, and honey in blender container. Cover and chill overnight. In the morning, simply add frozen strawberries, blend, and serve.

The girls loved the smoothie and I was impressed, it was delicious….even though mine didn’t include the cheerios!

SmoothieI’ve also created a Google+ album, Shopping for Equal at Walmart and a Recipe! #cbias you can see how going shopping with me torments my Hubby if you’re interested.

  1. Glad you found Equal at Wal-mart, I have yet to find the new container anywhere, I’ve even looked at Costco. But then again I’ve never looked in the Pharmacy department….lol
    I’ve never heard of cherrios on a smoothie, but the rest of the ingredients sound yummy. I’ll have to give that a try.
