What about sugars, molasses or honey instead of Nutrasweet? I'm allergic to
aspartame, too, but this is too good an idea, as well as delightfully,
almost sinfully cheap, to see it go untried. Hmmm...even Kool-Aid could

call it Blood of Mine Enemies or something gross like that (hey, that's
better than my previous idea!).
