Why of course! That can be found in a few different types, like light and dark. You should be able to find it in many grocery stores or health food stores.

Both of my parents are diabetic and my mom uses things with artificial sweeteners since she isn't supposed to have sugar and I've warned her about them because of all the nasty side effects, but she won't stop using them yet. A good thing to use is agave nectar for a sweetener. It's natural and doesn't raise your blood sugar like other things do sometimes. It is also ok to use if you're vegan as it is not an animal byproduct like honey.

Glad you're not using them. I'm going to have to stop using them as well.

I have never been able to use any artificial sweeteners as they have all given me headaches and stomach aches.

Good morning Team! I came across this article this morning and I was a little stunned. I use this product all of the time. Do you use artificial sweeteners or buy products with them in it?

For those of you who are off today, get in some "me" time and for those of you who have to work, make it a productive day.
