Meh... its just okay, definitely a sweetener replacement, not a sugar replacement
September 8, 2017
It's just okay. It definitely does not taste like sugar. It's kind of like taking the coloring and flavor out of a pixie stik you had as a kid, and what you would have left is Swerve. It's a little powdery and more to the bitter dull side of sweetness. My preference for my daily usage is Xylitol in my coffee.
In fact is side by side comparison I realized I actually like the taste of Xylitol in my coffee better than real sugar now. That said, Swerve (Erythritol) checks a few more boxes for me, the easy to digest, tooth friendly, diabetic friendly, non-GMO, plus from what I read it actually has less calories than Xylitol, and is also pet friendly (unconfirmed) whereas Xylitol is deadly to your pets. I am going to try this out for a few weeks and see if it sticks, but as of right now as I sip my morning coffee with a near teaspoon of this dense powder mixed in, I honestly cannot even taste any sweetness, so I am doubtful. I am however going to try and wrap my brain around the fact that this is just better for me.
Update: Downgrade from three to two stars. I may have gotten my header wrong, this may be a sugar replacement, but it is definitely not a sweetener replacement. I feel like you have to use way too much of this product to get a noticeable sweetness from it, and it's kind of a sickly sharp almost chemical kind of flavor to me... I don't like it at all. Plus it's way too expensive to be this disappointed in a product, so I am definitely switching back to Xylitol.
