Stevita Spoonable Stevia -- 16 oz
Tastes like saccharine with a strong aftertaste
I love xylitol and I like Trader Joe's stevia extract (small jar, tiny spoon), so I thought this would be great. I assumed that I could use less and get the best of both worlds without mixing them together myself like I've been doing.
The problem is that the taste is like saccharine. HORRIBLY oversweet, even using less than suggested serving (and I like things sweet - 2 1/2 generous teaspoons of xylitol in tea for example). I tried half a serving size in a cup of tea and it was undrinkable. It isn't just the sweetness, it is a fake sweet taste, very chemical, and the aftertaste lingers. Blech.
I'm chagrined, because when I try a new product I usually buy a small amount to test it, but I was so excited to get this product after reading the reviews, I bought one canister plus 4 boxes of packets for keeping at work. What a waste. After trying it, no one at work likes it either, so they won't even take it when I offered to give it away!

Great Taste, Savings & an Awesome Sugar Sub.
Have used it now for years now. I use it in making various teas daily putting it in my 1/2 gal. thermos (3/4 tsp). My kids have come to like it and don't know the difference when making homemade ice cream or other desserts. I use 1/3 the sugar required and add 1 tsp. of stevita to ice cream,. I also add it when making bread sweetening the loaf (1/3 tsp.) along with the required amount of sugar. The yeast will eat up the sugar but not the stevita helping aid in the flavor.

Easy to Use and Tastes Great
Just like a sugar jar ... only better!!! The container is great to have alongside coffee condiments on our tray, and it's super simple to spoon just a "tad."

THE BEST SPOONABLE STEVIA I HAVE EVER USED!
The main purpose I use this product for is to sweeten some plain Greek Yogurt which I purchase and keep on hand at home and at work. I put the Stevita in the container along with some Organic Cinnamon (there is a difference in taste vs non-organic cinnamon), and mix well in the container. It is a 32 oz container however I go through it pretty fast. When I want something sweet, I go for the yogurt w/Stevita and cinnamon! It satisfies without piling on calories, good for digestion, etc.
Thanks for putting this together for those of us who prefer natural ingredients!
