  • No. I hate that crap. And I don't trust any artificial sweetner. Saccharine anyone?

  • no, it doesn't taste LIKE sugar but it definitely tastes better than the other fake sugars IMO. My only concern is that it's made by adding chlorine to sugar and if you've ever swallowed pool water, you know what a tummy ache that can give a person!

  • I tried it once, it tastes like chemicals to me. I've never found a "sugar substitute" that tastes like the real thing.

  • all artificial sweeteners are worse for you than regular sugar. sugar is not harmful in moderation and any nutritionist will tell you that you're better off using sugar than a fake sweetener. and yes they don't taste the same

  • I happen to like it....except in coffee...Hell, to me real chocolate tastes fake now lol. Then again I'm diabetic and so I kind of have to live off the stuff.
