How on earth do you drink coffee with splenda in it?

I'm at work and there is no sugar. Splenda was all they had. So I put some in. Disgusting!! The aftertaste totally overpowered the coffee.

ITA. Splenda is fowl.

Add a smidge of real sugar. I used 1 packet of Splenda plus maybe 1/4 tsp of real sugar and it really takes the edge off the aftertaste. Unfortunately, I can't make this work for a cup of tea, but it seems to work in coffee.

Hmm, I honestly don't taste any aftertaste when I use Splenda. Maybe some are more sensitive than others? I've eaten a packet of Splenda straight before (not in anything, just plain), and it really tastes like sugar to me.

Sorry you had such a bad experience!

I love it. Sugar Twin is good as well.

3:46 poster here again. I wanted to test this theory again, so I ate a packet of Splenda, that had been sitting in my drawer for quite awhile. While I didn't think it had a terrible aftertaste, I did think it tasted more like cardboard than like sugar. Maybe it just doesn't keep very well, and you had some old splenda? It's entirely possible that it picks up taste from the surroundings or something...???

Just a theory, I could be totally wrong!

3:46/4:11 ... I'm giggling my head off at the thought of you taking one for the team by doing a shot of Splenda.

I think it's easier to take fake sugar in things you don't eat or drink very often, like oatmeal. I switched from tea to coffee recently, and since I don't know what coffee tastes like with real sugar, I don't mind the way it tastes with the fake stuff.

I haven't noticed a difference in having splenda with my coffee, if anything it's allowed me to wean myself off of cream.

I wouldn't

Splenda is nasty. Either organic sugar or black

I don't like any artificial sweeteners. I think they all have an aftertaste. I'm much happier with black coffee than coffee with splenda.

Splenda And Coffe

Try and have a little bit less sugar every time you have a coffe it really works and so quickly you get used to the taste. Hope that helped :)

I personally don't care for splenda sweet n low, equal.. any of those artificial sweetners. I much prefer agave syrup, stevia- plant extract, or honey.. or even just a bit of real sugar compared to putting something artificial in my body, but thats just me.. what works for one doesnt work for all.

I never use sugar in anything because I don't like sweet stuff. Except for jelly when I want a nut butter sandwich. I bought 2 smuckers sugar free preserves that have splenda in them. One blackberry and one orange marmalade. They aren't bad but they aren't real good either. I like that they aren't sticky sickening sweet like regular jelly. But they do have an after taste. So this is something I won't eat very often. Just when I have an unbeatable craving for a nut butter sandwich. That happens maybe once a month. I'll deal with it.

But if I needed sugar for coffee or tea I don't think I could use splenda as an every day thing. I'd learn to drink it plain before I used splenda in every cup. but that's just me.

Ugh! Sweet N Low gross!

I used to hate Splenda! But I got used to it since my mom stopped buying raw sugar! Uuh. But the worst is Sweet N Low it has a really bad aftertaste. Yuk. Anywho regular sugar or raw sugar doesn't even have a lot of calories so its not a biggie right? Btw can you use Brown sugar on your coffee?

I suppose you could use brown sugar in coffee but I can tell you it tastes pretty awful. It only works (takes some getting used to) in tea, really, and honey or sugar in the raw is always so much better there. I say just use a tsp of real sugar. 15 calories, no suffering. :)

Dark agave nectar is divine in coffee. And lower GI than sugar.

But I also keep some vanilla in my desk to add to my coffee...

To me, Splenda has a funny after taste in coffee and tea. I usually drink coffee black, use agave nectar, or if I'm really naughty - coffee mate liquid creamer - sometimes you just need a taste!

It took me a little over a week to get used to the taste of splenda in my coffee instead of sugar. I don't notice an odd taste anymore.
But I have to say that I think we can get used to the taste of anything if you use it long enough.
I personally can't stand stevia. But maybe if I used it longer I would adjust.
Anyway I just try not to have more than 1 cup of coffee a day. Don't want too much of the artificial stuff.

Kisha, along with client services director Lisa Leone and production manager Cathi Christopher Wholesale Jerseys 2016 , were confined to a 10-by-10-foot room backstage at the Auditorium Theatre, working with two heat-press machines and thousands of names on clear film in folders
  • Dallas Cowboys Jersey
  • , organized by team.

    "Even though we pretty much knew who was going to go in the first round, we still made all the names
  • Detroit Lions Jersey
  • , just to be sure, because there always seems to be some anomaly every year," Kisha said.The trio typically make two jerseys for each player: One to hold on stage and another that's destined to be cut into pieces for trading cards
  • Houston Texans Jersey
  • .They bring six jerseys for every team — all with the No. 1
  • Oakland Raiders Jersey
  • on the back — to account for a team having an unlikely three first-round picks.

    Until 2014, they brought only four jerseys per team but in 2013, the Minnesota Vikings traded up and had three first-round draft picks, which meant six jerseys. When the Vikings made their move
  • Jacksonville Jaguars Jersey
  • , Stahls' grabbed an extra jersey from a mannequin in New York City's Radio City Music Hall, where the draft was held.The group gets early word of draft picks from an NFL representative as soon as the pick is submitted by the team
  • Miami Dolphins Jersey
  • . Then the two-minute drill begins: Leone grabs the correct name from a box — this year the box contained 1,600 names
  • Minnesota Vikings Jersey
  • and team possibilities — and hands it off to be pressed by Kisha and Christopher, in a play they've run repeatedly.

    Names are only prepared for first-round prospects who have confirmed they will attend the event
  • New Orleans Saints Jersey
  • . Thursday night, 25 athletes attended.Stahls' gets the list of confirmed attendees about two weeks in advance.Each team has its own unique font NFL , which means 32 versions of every name.The company spends at least six weeks preparing for the event.

    Despite the pressure
  • New York Giants Jersey
  • , the company considered Thursday just another day on the job. Friday, the Stahls' team was on-site at the NFL Shop in Draft Town as part of a larger team that produces on-demand personalized apparel for fans
  • New York Jets Jersey
  • ."This year went really great," Kisha said. "You're always nervous though, you know? You've still got butterflies. And (you're) happy when it's done."
