Yeah in the case of splenda, at least it's not aspartame. But I would rather put something in my body that I know is natural and extracted directly from a plant, and also healthy - stevia .. than something that has been chemically synthesized.
The trick to stevia is that you can't add too much. I have baked successfully with stevia. I just replace the bulk that the sugar would contribute with something else.

Well, now I feel odd for being the only one having voted for white sugar
White sugar is just way more common here. I don't really use much sugar actually, besides the one which is already in products like sweets and some drinks. Since I am used to white sugar I voted for it.
Btw is Splenda artificial sugar / sweetener? If so then I agree, I hate it.
Brown. I suppose I'd use white for baking and other things. I might switch to honey, I have a ton of it from making mead and I do like it, just handn't thought of it. I'm trying to stay away from things with corn syrup, and I'll take anything artificial in a diet soda.
I think Splenda tastes fine. I use it in tea and in some baking. Mostly because Im the kind of person who dumps half a cup of sugar into their tea, hahaha. I use WAY too much to be consuming that much real sugar.
