I have a deep-seated dislike of artificial sweeteners. The taste of most (all?) of them makes me wince, and one in particular (aspartame) triggers migraines. So it’s getting increasingly frustrating that soft drink manufacturers are swapping out real sugar in their drinks and replacing it with artificial sweeteners. Barrs, I’m looking at you. Stop trying to avoid the sugar tax and just give us our sugar, don’t you realise people will rather pay more for a beverage they can drink without making themselves ill?
