I totally disagree. It doesn't taste like sugar. In fact, when I was pregnant, I tried it and almost ran to the bathroom from an overwhelming feeling of nausea.

I think it tastes just like sugar too. I could eat it plain if I wanted to! Even my fiance, who won't eat anything with nutrasweet or any of the other sweeteners, has tasted Splenda, plain, and says it tastes like sugar! Maybe it's good for some people and not for others...

I think it tastes sweeter than sugar. Nutrasweet gives me migraines though, so it's my sweetner of choice.

i agree it tastes more like sugar than other sweetners but artificial sweetners can be dangerous so i would use them sparingly.

I am not pregnant, but Splenda has thrice made me run to the bathroom too...and not because I was nauseous, either. Unpleasantness abounded.

Splenda is what I have been using for 3 years now. I love it and to me it taste like real sugar. My husband won't touch any of that stuff cause he can't stand the after taste. So we did a test. Blind-folded I had 3 different PB, one was creamy skippy, another was Adams and the 3rd was low card skippy made with splenda, when he tasted them he didn't like the Adams, and ended up deciding the one with splenda was the real thing. Boy was he surprised! I will admitt in some receipes it does have an after taste and it also has a laxative affect on some people. I guess we won't really know what affect cholinated sugar has on us for a while.

I never heard that splenda had a laxative effect. Maybe I should try it! LOL. just kidding. I'm just like the real thing Good old fashioned sugar. Everything in moderation and I think that a tablespoon of sugar isn't going to impact my health either way.

I just tried to find sugar substitutes and this thread came up. Aren't these just bad for you?

To all of you who don't think it tastes like sugar, think again, it is sugar. My aunt is a food microbiologist who works w/'s actually sugar with an added molecule which makes it so the body cannot absorb it the same way it does sugar. Just an interest fact....

what about stevia?

stevia is better for you and is a little more natural than splenda. plus it helps with bloating at that time of the month. its 10x sweeter than sugar so a little goes a long way.
