I have! It's a little different tasting than sugar, but you also need only a tiny bit and it's herbal (I HATE artificial sweeteners!!!). The only problem is it's iffy for baking. But otherwise, it's a great sugar substitute.

I just started using it this week. Such a great, no-calorie, MUCH healthier alternative to sugar! It's actually GOOD for you! lol

I use it for my coffee. I agree w/ pps, it does taste different than sugar. But not as different as honey or other natural sweeteners. Artificial sweetners make me nervous as an every day thing.

Re: Stevia Herbal Sweetner

i have been using it for coffee and a sweetner in my ricotta cheese but i have never baked with it. i don't think you can but I am not sure??
anyway- i love it. but i do think the powdered and liquid form taste very different from one another- i much prefer the powder.
