What Is A Splenda Daddy: Definition, Differences, Requirements
What is a splenda daddy and is a poor sugar daddy always a bad choice? What are the differences between a sugar and a splenda daddy? Here, we’ll tell you all you need to know about this side of sugar dating!
Splenda daddy: Definition
What is a splenda daddy? To put it simply, it’s a “poor” sugar daddy whose income doesn’t allow him to pay a high allowance. It’s a man who wants to be a sugar daddy but can only allow $500 per month for his SB is usually called a “splenda daddy”.
Splenda daddy characteristic
Not all sugar daddies are the same and Splenda Daddy is one of them. Splenda daddy is a sugar dating term that denotes a man who aspires to be a sugar daddy but has a limited income. Here are some common characteristics:
- Less rich than a sugar daddy
- Tend to offer strict allowance on a weekly/monthly basis
- Allowance is usually non-negotiable
- Leads less luxurious and lavish lifestyle
- Provides fewer perks as gifts and vacations
- He is not a millionaire but still tries to spoil his SB
Splenda daddy term is in most part income-based. SBs who dated real sugar daddies rarely will opt for Splenda Daddies.
Differences between a sugar and a splenda daddy
The word “sugar” in “sugar relationships” means financial support. Splenda is an artificial sweetener, and continuing this analogy, a “splenda daddy” is, as we’ve just said, a man whose income only allows him to provide a low allowance. However, “splenda” is not the complete opposite of sugar daddy because he still wants to give financial support to an SB. The complete opposite of that is usually called “salt daddy”—a toxic, manipulating man who often tricks women into sleeping with him without any intentions of giving anything.
The main difference between a sugar and a splenda daddy is the amount of money a daddy wants and can spend on a sugar baby. The average daddy makes $250,000 annually which means there are many SDs who make less than that—but as long as a daddy can give a sugar daddy all she wants, he shouldn’t be called “splenda”. If the daddy can only offer $800 per month and you’re ok with that, he is still a “sugar” daddy. If you, however, want to get a $3,000 allowance and a daddy can only allow $800, he’s a splenda daddy.

How to spot a splenda daddy?
It’s difficult to spot a splenda daddy at first sight. Not all sugar daddies drive fancy cars and wear Gucci (most of them actually don’t do any of these) so it’s quite hard to find out who makes $250,000 annually and who makes $150,000 or even $100,000. That’s why you should forget about the things like “a sugar daddy drives a Ferrari, a splenda daddy drives a Toyota”. No, both of them can drive Toyota, this doesn’t indicate anything.
The only thing that indicates everything is: he’s trying to haggle you down. If a potential sugar daddy tries to undercut the allowance, congratulations—you’ve just spotted a splenda (or a salt) daddy.
How to be a splenda daddy? Main requirements
There are two main requirements to be a good splenda daddy. Here they are:
- You mustn’t be broke. Splenda daddies aren’t “salt” daddies, they still can provide a low allowance (say, $400, $600, or even $800).
- You need to do what you can with what you have. Do sugar the right way, pay for the things you can allow, buy your sugar baby gifts, and don’t be cheap.
P.S. Every year, the average income of an SD drops, and what was “splenda” in 2007 is now considered “sugar”. So, if your income doesn’t allow you to get a SB now, don’t worry—maybe, it’ll change in the near future.
