Since I am sensitive to the amount of sugar in a recipe, I wouldn't call this sugar free at all, it has a LOT of natural sugars. Which even for people with diabetes (not my problem) can have TOO much of.

I would label these No Sugar Added, some people out there just don't pay attention to label and think, you don't add sugar I guess it's Sugar Free, despite the fact you have a lot of natural sugars.
