I use both regular or splenda depending on what I'm using it for. I don't use any of the other substitutes as I don't care for the tase ot the issues they can cause.

I use stevia in tea ( just a small amount! A little goes a long way) but I think it taste funny in coffee. You can find stevia plant in the herbs area in some nurseries and steep it in your tea like mint. Very tasty.

Aspartame sweeteners give me a migraine headache, sweet n low I use to put in tea mixed with regular sugar that you drink at exclusive dinners by using two packets of sugar each sugar because the other choices is water or coffee. So I learned about Spenda which I prefer in coffee, tea or other foods that contain Splenda. Alcohol sugars such as in some ice creams that are sugar-free( yeah right) gives me a sugar spike that sends me simply out of it! When I want to treat myself to ice cream I like Dreyer's Brand because its all natural and only have 14gr of carbs per serving without those extra preservatives. I also add fresh strawberry's sometimes.

I like both also. I used to like real sugar but for the past two years I use sweet n low. I think it because I've gotten used to it.

I use Equal. Splenda changed the taste of my coffee and tea and I didn't like it. I don't go near Sweet and Low or the natural sweeteners on the market today. It causes my stomach to cramp and leaves a horrible after taste. When I make something that requires sugar, which is rare, I use the real stuff and eat a little of it. I do this because my sister can have real sugar.

What little I use, I always go for the real stuff. I don't like substitutes for anything. I try to keep my food as natural as possible.

When i use any i use Candarel, but try to steer clear as it gives me a sweet tooth. :) I find that the other brands have an odd aftertaste.
