Sucralose (Splenda) sucks

We were out of regular hot cocoa, so I had a cup of the sugar-free kind at my office (artificially sweetened with Splenda / sucralose) because I realllllly wanted some hot cocoa. It’s cold and rainy, perfect cocoa weather.

Headache set in about an hour after drinking it.

Stupid Splenda. 😦

Look like it’s confirmed: I can’t have that stuff. It’s a shame, because I don’t like the taste of the pink or blue sweeteners (saccharin and aspartame, respectively) and I’m rather against artificial sweeteners in general due to their ‘artificial-ness’, and stevia causes me a bit of intestinal upset (which is odd because it’s often used to soothe intestinal upset)…  It’s frustrating, to say the least.

    I say, go for the real deal! As long as you aren’t eating tons of it with every meal, snack, drink, etc. refined,white sugar is WAYYYYYY better for you than any chemical replacement. My two cents, for what they are worth…
