When my doctor recommended that I use an artificial sweetener, instead of sugar, I turned my nose up, not so much due to the possible health risks, but because I loathed the aftertaste of everything that I had tried before. She suggested Splenda, so I gave it a try, and have been using it since.
I find it quite satisfactory in coffee, cerial or anything that I sweeten myself, but when looking for over-the-counter products sweentened with it, I have been quite disappointed. Not because of anything due to the use of Splenda, but because those sugar free products simply don't follow the recipes that regular products do.
For example, I have tried both Smuckers and Great Value jams and preserves, and the sweetness is good, but the basic taste is no where near as good. It is as though they scrimp on other ingredients. I have been getting Splenda Diet Rite Cola, but it was never very good with or without Splenda anyway.
Are there any Splenda products that actually are as good as their sugared counterparts?
