I haven't found an artificial sweetener I like. I find them all nasty.

I use Organic Agave Nectar. It has a low glycemic index which means it is slowly absorbed by the body and does not cause the same rapid increase in blood sugar as table sugar. It can be used as a substitute for honey and corn syrup in baking and cooking.

I gave up diet-pepsi in january and I'm proud to say I did not go back to it.
I think about how good it would be once in a while but then I think it's not worth it and walk away! (Now if I could just say that to food! )
Gum would be kind of hard though.
Other products I try to avoid as much as I can.

All the diet stuff I drink generally has Aspartame in it. I'm trying to get away from all diet sweetners though.

considering I am a diabetic I do not have the luxery of choosing sugar over artificial sweetners.
The primary sweetner for me is Ideal (xylitol / Sucralose / Maltodextrin). I do not use enough for bloating etc.. The other one is Splenda. Stevia leaves a bitter after-taste that I just cannot wrap my taste buds around.

I'm definitely getting off fountain diet coke and pepsi. That's for sure. I'm also reconsidering my choice in gum. Not to mention my choice in yogurt. I think I'm just going to be a stickler about no diet or sugar free product.

The only artificial sweetner approved for me is Stevia .

Interesting article from CSPI on artificial Sweeteners. Some of these surprise me.
