The Weekly Open Thread: What Do You Think of Stevia?

Stevia, I dont believe ya
  • Stevia, I don't believe ya
I've tried a couple of different drinks sweetened with stevia recently, and I have to say, I really don't like it. I know it's supposed to be a naturally derived sweetener with zero calories, but it tastes weird and synthetic to me. It doesn't taste any better than aspartame as far as I can tell, though it may be better for you.

In fairness, I never drink any diet sodas or drinks, because I don't like the taste of most artificial sweeteners, either. And I'm not a big soda drinker anyway. I do like ginger ale (Canada Dry is my preferred brand) and the occasional Mexican Coke. And I can see if you are someone who is trying to lose weight, a more natural alternative to zero-calorie sweeteners is a good thing.

But it ain't for me.

What say ye, Bitesters? Stevia yea, or stevia nay?

And what else is going on?
