IME, sweets with Splenda don't taste any different from those with regular sugar. We've been doing that for about 3 or 4 years now, thanks to me. :s I'd be willing to bet you won't taste a difference.
Happy Thanksgiving! Now I've gotta get back to cleaning before everyone gets here.
I can taste Splenda a mile away. Ick.
But, it also makes me extremely ill, so it could be why I don't like it.
I've always believed sugar was more healthy than substitutes so I don't let my kids use them. Moderation is the key, I believe.
Diabetes is a different monster. We have several coming here today with it and it just occured to me that I didn't make anything or have anyone bring anything for them. I must go remedy.
Thanksgiving was last month for me, and is not nearly as big a deal here as it seems to be in the US. I wasn't able to be with my family (a three day weekend is not enough time when it involves a 12 hour bus trip each way), so I made myself pumpkin pie and cranberry sauce (with real sugar) and spent the weekend trying to catch up on homework and sleep.
my husband has Diabetes & we use Splenda all the time, we can't tell any difference.
Okay. I just gotta say...sweet potatoes with splenda brown sugar just didn't work for me. Ditto on the lemon meringue pie with it.
I say...it probably kept me from eating more. A few bites sufficed.
But I use splenda in some things. (Atkins desserts, that or stevia.)
Anyhow, I really vote for real white sugar. But that is not on the atkins diet and I'm sure it is responsible, at least in part, for me being so large at this time...so, I'll do without.
Today, I ate bacon, deviled eggs, and some chicken dipped in cream and rolled in parmesan, fried in olive oil. That, too, was very, very good.
