Someone told me to use Stevia as an alternative to table sugar in my coffee. So I went out and bought a box of packets for $10.45. Let me tell you that it sucks bigtime! It leaves a horrible aftertaste. I am now convinced that nothing beats good old cane sugar.
Splenda is good. Artificial, but good. Yes, look for a stevia product that has higher rebaudioside content (as opposed to high stevioside content). The latter is very bitter... but sweet. Why the hell did you buy stevia anyway?
