Could someone tell me if Brown Sugar Substitute is ok on Phase II? Also has anyone tried it? If so how did it work for you?

I tried a brown sugar substitute made by the same company that makes Sweet n Low---It tasted horrible. Was craving oatmeal with brown sugar and put this on--it was really bad. Had to make a new bowl of oatmeal and use the real stuff. Definatly would not reccomend this to anyone.

The colour is right but not the taste.

I agree...looks like the real thing, but doesn't taste like it, nor does it have the same texture.

To use up the box that I have, I mix it with Splenda when I am baking things like the brownies.

Isn't there a Brown sugar substitute made with Stevia? Wonder if that is tastier? I've been wondering about this too. Wonder if one of the Splenda syrups might be a good replacement?
