    Oi Oi! Have you tried stevia? It's a natural plant extra and not a carcinogen like aspartame...

    Sugar can be just as bad. It's so heavily processed, you're ok the right path with honey ;)

    Stevia is great, it's what I use. Sweeter than normal sweetener so you don't need as much but it does the job.

    Never heard of the other one. You're on your own there kid.

    It is a bit more but double the sweetness so you need less.

    Like concentrated squash if you will!

    Pippa - if you mean that you've not heard of Truvia, it's just the Coca Cola / Cargill brand of an artificial sweetener made using the Stevia leaf. I think it was one of the 1st stevia-leaf sweeteners to hit the shelves. However, I saw a Tesco own sweetener on the shelf yesterday which is made with the stevia leaf & it's obviously much cheaper than Truvia.
