Like "NEVER NEVER NEVER will I use an artificial sweetener!! It does kill rats you know, plus Splenda causes kidney failure. If I MUST use a sweetener . . I just use regular sugar or sugar in the raw AFTER I see I can't use natural honey or REAL fruit juice or fruits. See, our bodies are made for NATURAL foods, why put more chemicals in it? Sure sugar is processed, but how much does a person need of that or salt for that matter? :) "
