Which artificial sweetener or sugar substitute tastes most like real sugar?
Please state brand of the product, too, if you really like it because I've tried Stevia, have heard people rave about it, tried it but wasn't impressed. However, there were like 6 different Stevia brands to choose from and maybe I got the wrong one?

Stevia is the safest and most natural of sweeteners.
The other ones are actually very bad for you.
They cause something called an excitatory response in the brain and this can cause all sorts of problems.
Splenda is glucose...so it is still sugar.
The other ones are simply laboratory chemicals.
Why not try the liquid Stevia Clear?
Use it sparingly until you get used to it.
If you are truly addicted to the sweetness of sugar, you may have to deal with a bit of "withdrawal' for a week or so, but eventually you will get used to it.
I withdrew from sugar by drinking a lot of green tea with a few drops of Stevia.
That was about ten years ago.
I am still sugar free and plan to stay that way.
Good luck.
Hope you find something that works for you. :-)
PS. You also might like Xylitol instead of Stevia. It is much different, but still works as a sweetener.
Both Stevia and Xylitol are not altered chemically with heat.

I live in new york and have never seen your brand on the shelves of local supermarkets. The brands I've used are sweet&low,equal and splendar.I like equal but it,s more expensive and splendar is mixed with real sugar but sweet and low is very swet and costs the least except when using the store brands, then they are cost effective.

I've tried a few - the one that came closest is Xylitol. About 1/2 the calories of sugar, no aftertaste, recommended for diabetics and does not ruin your teeth.

It's made from hardwood trees, meaning it's not synthetic like so many other sweeteners. Brand is called Smart Sweet (US made). I can't distinguish it from sugar by taste, but have noted that the Chinese-made stuff tastes pretty gross (they make it from corn, not hardwood).

Have a look in Wikipedia, pretty neat stuff.

I like Splenda, it doesn't have the weird kind of chemical tang that Sween n Low does.

In line with what Earth Angel said I know a man who cannot use artificial sweeteners (I don't know whether he has tried stevia) because they give him migraines. Poor guy is certain that it's just a matter of time before he comes down with familial diabetes, and he's not looking forward to it. He is a bit of a bully, but I do pity that destiny.

Splenda tastes most like real sugar. I was raised with a diabetic mother, so I have had the actual saccharin of years ago, sweet and low, equal, others that I can't remember and they were all nasty. Since my mom had diabetes from childhood, she did not cook or serve many foods that had sugar. When Splenda came out, I was skeptical and it was expensive. But I tried it in my coffee first and then iced tea and it was great. I also have tried Stevia and though it was terrible.
Walmart has their own brand of sucralose (splenda) called Altern which is cheaper and just as good.

Stevia tastes digusting to me, kind of like licorice. Plus it's been linked to fertility problems. I've been an aspartame (Equal, blue packets) user for 25 years with no problems. It's the best-tasting to me, but some people prefer sucralose (Splenda, yellow packets)

I think splenda tastes best. it's not too sweet and doesn't have much of an artificial or aftertaste.

I have tried almost every sugar substitute on the market and none of them taste like actual sugar. They either have an odd after taste or they are way too sweet. I prefer Splenda over them all.

I wish I could find one as well and with a sweet tooth I don't think any compare to sugar.
I think it is a question of getting used to one of them.
Sugaryll is probably the only one I really like.
