    No. If we want something sweet we use white sugar. We just don't use it much.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    I use Nu Naturals liquid stevia. It doesn't cause a rise in blood sugar. The powdered stevias are all mixed with some form of sugar if that's a concern for you...

    I use it minimally - just in my coffee twice a day, occasionally a teaspoon in baking to replace some honey or maple syrup in a sweet treat. Doesn't seem to affect my cravings for sweets or my weight.

    Not anymore. It sends me off looking for sugar, just like Splenda or that other crap does. Just plain old fruit is sweet enough for me these days.

    If I want a sweetener, I use honey or maple syrup, or very rarely brown or white sugar.

    not. i don't like the taste/burn process of it.

    we dont' use a lot of sweet. when I do, it's honey. I don't bake or cook with it or whatever -- it's rare -- though sometimes it's nice for certain immune boosting things (ginger/lemon/honey beverage).

    I use liquid stevia, ranging to occasionally to regularly. I like it in my coffee and seltzer.

    Tried to grow a stevia plant once. I killed it. I have a brown thumb.

    I don't use it because, to me, it just tastes foul. *shudder*
    I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

    It tastes weird to me, I also am against using it because of the health halo that stevia producers give it. Dude, packaged stevia is so far from its natural form. It's an artificial sweetener, no better. I will happily use aspartame, but I hate the hypocrisy of stevia/agave.
