    Having switched back and forth between stevia and sugar a couple times, I'd say the trick is to choose one or the other and don't mix. Once you get accustomed to stevia it tastes "normal," while sugar's immediate and strong effects on your system can knock you for a loop. If you only ingest real sugar, stevia's taste will strike you as odd, the way that saccharine did back in the day.

    It can be a challenge to find stevia in bulk, though, such that you can mete it out with measuring spoons and cups. I make hot chocolate with it but grow weary of tearing open several dozen packets to sweeten it enough. On the plus side, if you make it from scratch yourself and have one of those drink frothers you'll get an amazing mug of hot chocolate versus the convenient one Swiss Miss delivers.

    I found another sugar alternative called Swerve. I believe it's an alcohol sugar. It tastes better. Adding lots of half-and-half helps too.

      Thanks, I'll check into that. What supermarket chain carries it?

        Walmart, Amazon, I'm sure several others. On searching, turns out they have a brown sugar substitute too, I'll have to try that in oatmeal.
