When I first tried Stevia about 6-7 years ago, I didn't know that it was super strong. The local health food store had a basket of them loose for a nickel. I bought a handful and the next morning I poured two packets on my cereal, thinking they were just like Sweet-N-Low. I would have loved to have seen the look on my face when I took a bite!
I think my favorite sweetener ever was Somersweet, but WOW did it give me gas. That was right after my husband and I married, and talk about a short honeymoon.
