We've switched to Stevia and Sucralose but we are tapering down on Splenda (sucralose) in Hansens and low carb-Monster. All things in moderation and in due time, not dismantling Rome overnight.

Aspartame gives me a wicked headache in quantity as it does for my husband as well. However Crystal Lite does their aspartame, it makes it undrinkable for both of us, even a small cup. I remember years ago buying a canister of Crystal Lite and having to take it to work to be consumed there by others with more tolerance.

For whatever reason we drink lots of iced tea (unsweetened for me) in the lower 48 but not so much up here. That is the best alternative for me for a refreshing and healthy drink.
