I can't help but think there ought to be warnings out there on foods that have artificial sweeteners! I hate that it's so common it's just assumed that everyone's ok with consuming this stuff!
Personally, first and foremost, this crap gives me migraines.
I have good reason to stay away from it and it's not a case of "a little bit won't harm you." Yeah it will. It will land me in bed for two days!
My office just had a Friday morning breakfast and all the food is of course stuff I do not choose to eat, but there was fresh fruit. I had that. It was very sweet and I assumed it was just really good fruit. NO. The person who made it said I could eat it guilt free because it just had Nutrasweet in it.
Dag gum! I usually taste it straight off!
Searching for it in packaged crap is hard enough with all the names it goes by. But in restaurants I have to stay away from "lite" because more than likely I know it has artificial sweeteners.
I guess it's a little like having an allergy. I'm sure people with nut and soy allergies get just as aggravated with having to be so careful about what people make. I guess I'm just venting, because keeping that mind I don't expect people to write up a nutrition label every time they bring in a dish to share. That would not be fair. But there are people out there with food sensitivities to this junk.
