I tried using stevia in my coffee, yuk! It left a terrible aftertaste.

I went back to using sucralose.

Well, the thing is, some people die from eating one peanut, but that doesn't mean we must all stop eating peanuts. So it is possible that YOU are allergic to aspartame, yet that is not proof that it is bad for everyone. We all have our peccadilloes.
