NOW Foods Real Food™ Xylitol -- 2.5 lbs
Not as good as sugar
but the best substitute I've come across. This tastes better than stevia, which tastes bitter to me. Wish the price was lower, i only buy xylitol sporadically because its rather pricey compared to regular sugar

Tastes Like Sugar, Better For You, Economical Size
I use this in my coffee and cannot tell the difference from real sugar. It is much more diabetes-friendly than sugar and none of the creepy chemicals that are in artificial sweeteners. I like saving on the larger size, too. Numerous tests have proven that xylitol is even good for dental health. Although, supposedly, diarrhea and flatulence may occur with over-use of xylitol, I have never had those problems. I just wish Vitacost would offer their own brand of xylitol in this size. (Hint, hint)

use it like sugar for guilt free desserts!
I've used this in cakes and cookies with no one taking notice -except that there was no sugar crash.

Looks like sugar with no taste
I really don't understand what all the rave reviews for this product is about. I read them and decided to place the order, excited to have access to a great sugar substitute. Well it arrived and on my first experience I kept adding spoon (a little larger than tea spoon) after spoon to my hot drink. By third spoon it was barely bearable. Manufacturer valuing over $15 retail price for this!!!. If a sugar substitute means no taste I guess this would qualify.

Great sugar alternative
I use this sparingly otherwise it gives me digestive issues, but a little goes a long way and I can fix something sweet by mixing this with some stevia and not get those awful sugar cravings.
