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
