I’ve recently been thinking that I might like to cut down on my sugar intake. One of the most obvious sources of sugar in my diet is in my morning coffee. So, when I was at Starbucks on the weekend, I liberated several different kinds of artifical sweeteners to try them out.
This morning I grabbed the first packet I could find – the pink Sweet ‘N Low (why is there a musical staff on the label?). I dumped in one packet and was off. At first I was pretty happy – it didn’t seem overly sweet, but as my coffee cooled on the way to work, it seemed like it tasted less and less like sugar and more and more like something fake.
I’m giving it a 6/10 as artificial sweeteners go. It didn’t make me gag, but I didn’t love it.
