    I have ordered some Stevia but it hasn't arrived yet in the meantime I'm using Sweetex which has a horrible after-taste.

    The Stevia I ordered arrived today, it is absolutely awful! I have binned it so have wasted my money. I actually prefer the Sweetex. It may be the actual brand that I bought but I won't be buying any more. I shall buy some Splenda.

    The brand I bought which was called Earth Sweet, had a bitter after taste & seemed to dry my mouth. I could not get rid of it, much worse than saccharin. I was so disappointed, I'd read on the US sites how good stevia is, how like sugar. It may be that I simply bought the wrong brand but I won't be buying any more - too expensive a mistake! It would be much better if we could experiment - try before we buy. I emptied the tub down my loo, I hope it doesn't corrode my pipes... :mad:
