    I tried it once, disgusting. Maybe I'll try it again, I think I put too much of it and it just overpowered the coffee and was a gross sugary blast I didn't expect

    I tried it and wanted to vomit. I don't like any of those sweeteners at all. I just use real sugar and work it into my calories for the day.

    Artificial sweeteners are not very tasty!! Better to use a little real sugar! I like my coffee black and my tea with lemon!

    Real sugar is the way to go, if you need to sweeten things. Me...I'm sweet enough already, so I don't use any in my coffee. lol

    If that works for you, OP, go for it!

    I put a quarter cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk and a tablespoon of hazelnut creamer. 57 calories.

    Since I detest sugar in my coffee (so vile!), I don't think I'd like stevia.

    Yes you can tell the difference. Stevia is the most disgusting thing ever on the face of the earth. LOL. I have been drinking my tea and coffee black with no creamer or sweetener for years. I tried Stevia in tea once and I nearly gagged, and poured the cup out. If I want sweetener in my tea, I'll opt for the low calories but great taste of HONEY.

    Nothing but real sugar will do when I want sugar. Can't stand that other stuff. But I don't need to sweeten my coffee. Half & half is enough for me. Or almond or soy milk or non-dairy creamer.

    I also think it's gross. I drink my coffee in 16oz travel mug increments, and 2tsp of sugar is (IMO) a perfect amount of sweetness. It's only 32 calories - COMPLETELY worth it. And I'm no artificial sweetener hater - my blood is about 1/3 Diet Coke :lol:. I just pick my battles on the sugar front.

    Drink flavoured coffees for an occasional treat. Otherwise I enjoy my coffee straight cream or sweetener.

    I've recently had to start drinking my coffee black. Hopefully eventually it'll grow on me, lol.

    Any type of artifical sugar tastes disgusting in coffee...just my opinion. Try coconut milk if you're looking to cut back on sugar

    Stevia isn't really an artificial sweetener the way Splenda and Sweet N Low are. I don't use any of it, personally, but Stevia comes from a natural source. If you like it, go for it. I use Natural Bliss creamer (which is sweetened with sugar) in my coffee and just account for it. I don't use more than 100 cals worth. It took time to reduce the amount, I used to do about 1/4 of my cup as creamer!

    The way to stomach black coffee is actually buy good coffee and learn how to brew it properly, ideally with distilled water. Makes all the difference.

    Why is it better to use "real sugar"? Who is it better for?

    I use splenda but only enough to add just a little sweet then use half and half or sugar free hazelnut, I make sure I allow for my coffee calories (it's the only time i drink my calories)
