I use sweetleaf liquid drops and stevita granulated.
the sweetleaf drops do lend a weird taste/after taste at first but you get used to it after awhile. I dont use the regular drops though I always go for the vanilla cream. the regular sweetleaf is really not good.
stevita is awesome though. 1 packet is perfect for 16 oz. of liquid so have a packet for a standard cup of tea or coffee works very well.
erythritol isn't the problem people have with truvia. It is the "natural flavors" in it. That could be anything from msg to something wheat or soy.

I wish I could remember the name of the place I used to go to in Fair Oaks, CA. That place was cool but I'm sure it's since been bought by or run out of business by Whole Foods.
Pardon my walk down memory lane. I currently like the Whole Foods brand liquid extract. Sweetleaf is good too.
A wonderful brand, with NO aftertaste, is the liquid version from KAL.
I used to get it from Whole Foods, but I don't see it there anymore.
So, now I get it from Amazon.
