I try not to use sugar or sweetners for anything, I do use honey on breakfast cereal,I used to chew gum which had aspartame in it untill I read how bad it was for you, and I always ended up with headaches after using the gum, I now get the Spry with the xylitol in it which is supposed to be good for dental hygiene.

Speaking of sweeteners that have been renamed. I was shopping for cereal. There was a lady doing the same. I picked up a box and read the label. I have to use a magnifier. I have one that is the size of a credit card. I said, "Now why do they have to use corn syrup in all these things?" The lady says, "At least it is not high fructose corn syrup." I explained that the FDA allowed manufacturer to shorten the name, because HFCS was getting a bad reputation.
