I've read elsewhere that it's not too bad.
Here's a link to splenda's site for their recipe index: http://www.splenda.com/page.jhtml;jsessionid=LDPIVTDDF1B2OCQPCCFSUYYKB2IIQNSC?id=splenda/recipes/library.inc

See when I look at products with less sugar and such, and I get it use it, I am very disappointed with the taste..I am one of those people who can tell you which thing is sugar free, and such. I know alot of people who say they cant tell between coke and pepsi and all that....

I use regular splenda quite a lot, not the baking kind that is 1/2 sugar. I love it! My diabetic customer's love it. My non-diabetic customers love it. It's just great stuff!!

It's expensive though. My cakes/cheesecakes with splenda are very pricey (almost double in price).

I use regular splenda also. There is a taste difference when compared to sugar, but it doesn't have that strong aftertaste that most artificial sweeteners have. The cake & icing I made with it were good with no funny taste.
