I've learned in certain recipes (obviously not all) that I can substitute sugar with natural things instead of sweeteners. I do understand some sweeteners are natural, but I'm just sayin. I've used honey in lieu of sugar in plenty of recipes and it's worked just fine.
I'd still rather not even eat sugar. But as far as taste goes, brown sugar wins in my books.
