Been using Splenda since it came out over a year ago. One advantage of Splenda over other substitutes is you can bake with it. The others loose their sweetness and some go sour when heated. The sad thing about cutting back on sugar is I don't get to use the home made maple syrup as much.

try honey - sure it's messy but it's 10 times sweeter than sugar and better for ya :)

actually if you are diabetic or just watching the carbs. honey is not good for ya! its very high in carbs as are most natural or refined sugars. a very common misconception regarding sugars is that natural sugars are good for you, not necessarily so, sugars are sugars. splenda; no fat and almost no carbs.

yep you're probably right - thought about diabetics after i posted it - oops :)
what are we watching anyway? used to be calories but they're good for you. even though everybody's jumping on the carb bandwagon, so are they normally. is there an identified enemy besides silverware & melmac? jeez :)

i'm gonna count my gnoids from now on. no matter who's looking. i'll start with the talk show hosts and ultimately ask the shelf-stockers if they have any of this in low-gnoid etc. hey i could sell gnoid-o-matic exercise machies. then watch janice flash a gnoid and somebody will outlaw that too. i mean don't nice goinds count? :)
