You'll get used to it after a while. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Agree, but think it may be sooner than that, Aspartame's been in use under numerous names for almost 40 years so lots of evidence on its damaging effect, much worse than the sugar it replaces.

How it ever got approved is beyond me, though does makes for interesting reading.
But sure the US FDA approved it, so must be safe for everyone else to approve too.

Could you not just buy a sugar free version and lob in a few teaspoons yourself ?

How is that going to remove the vile taste/aftertaste of artificial sweeteners?

What do you mean? Anything put in our food pases rigorous human testing, there won't be any surprises there. Safety profile of most sweeteners is very good and is for sure much healthier than consuming obscene amouns of sugar

I'd be hard pressed to buy anything containing sweeteners. They've been around a long time but I just can't develop a taste for them at all.

Cordials without sweeteners are difficult to come by, I used to enjoy an occasional lemon barley water but that's gone by the wayside now.

As for people guzzling down sugar, I see a girl in one of the local supermarkets working at the self service checkouts, probably weighs 20 stone and always has a Coke or a club orange in her hand. Much like taxing cigarettes, people who want to ingest crap will pay any price for the privilege.

7up is ruined forever.


Used to be a classic Irish staple now its disgusting because they have 'improved it with sweenters'

If I want a frizzy drink, I want a full fat one.



Not my problem if other people csnr limit their intake of sugar, I can.
