    Default Weird experience yesterday

    At our local shopping centre (mall) food court yesterday I ordered a white
    coffee from a cafe/sandwich &salad bar/ juice bar. They do all types of
    coffees, teas, shakes etc. I asked for artificial sweetener. The woman
    looked at me like I was a freak and said oh, we only have white. White sugar
    I presume....

    I said I am a diabetic and how unusual to find a coffee shop that doesn't
    have artificial sweeteners. Her reply was oh, we used to have it but people
    would take more than they needed. I pointed out that most other coffee shops
    kept the sweeteners under the counter for that reason... Was a waste of
    breath but needed to be said The woman waiting next to me looked at me
    and smiled

    How very odd that they don't have any, and using that as an excuse.
    Probably too cheap to buy any, instead of too stupid to keep them behind the
    counter. LOL

    I don't use the sweeteners, but I have a similar experience
    when I ask for pure cream. I've found that most coffee-shop
    staff have no idea what I mean, so then I ask if they have
    "pouring" cream; next step is "whipping" cream. If they have
    the cream, I order double-shot black coffee with a side
    (usually in a tiny jug) of cream.

    I've done this all around the world.

    About one in ten have an acceptable version of cream,
    unadulterated by sugar. The vast majority have pressure-pak
    whipped cream with a very high sugar content. In those other
    nine I drink my coffee black; in the USA I sometimes have
    half-and-half.

    Ozgirl, I always carry a tiny little zipper purse in my handbag and it
    contains some packets of splenda and a couple of my favorite teabags. I
    take a regular and a decaf chai teabag and a regular and a decaf Constant
    Comment teabag in that little purse also. I seldom use the artificial
    sweetener, but my husband always uses it, so it is mostly for him.

    I only ever use it in coffee. I used to carry sweetener tablets around but
    the lid came open in my bag one day and I had this big, powdery mess

    I always order doble espresso, doble forte, black, when I'm at an airport
    or Italian Ristorante. They all have had Splenda on the self-serve counter.

    In the USA, "Whipping" cream is 32% butterfat, "Heavy" cream is 36%.

    I think the packets are easier. You could even put one in your wallet.

    Have you considered carrying the Hermesetas pocket
    dispensers? They are spill-proof, needing a squeeze of the
    dispenser to eject one tablet at a time:

    I bought a Hermesetas Gold (based on a blend of Aspartame
    and Acesulfame-K) pocket-pack just after diagnosis. I still
    have it and it's nearly full because I gave up sweeteners in
    hot drinks a few months later.

    Might try that, a container would last me a lifetime but handy for
    situations like this week. Also handy for having a coffee at someone's
    house, not everyone uses artificial sweetener.

    Funny, I've gotten them from a friend in Australia. When those ran out,
    I bought some in my local supermarket; the packet that I have is marked
    "made in Italy".

    Thanks but it is ok, most if not all of the artificial sweeteners here come
    in tabs, they have done for as long as I can remember which is abut 35
    years. Very convenient. Slip in the handbag and take everywhere. Just got to
    be careful to get ones that don't have easy to open lids

    No, the US. I've seen them in both my local supermarkets (both major
    internationally-owned chains), in Connecticut. They're pricy, but
    convenient for tea.

    well good they are available in the US now...... typically things move
    to Canada about a year after the US gets them.

    the Splenda tablets, with conversion and shipping costs work out to
    about what the Equal tablets cost

    Do you have generic sucralose yet? We started getting variants of
    Splenda like the tablets around the time the first generic boxes of the
    packets showed up.

    The funny thing is that Splenda itself was available in Canada long
    before it was available in the US. When I first went to Nova Scotia for
    vacation, I brought back what I hoped would be a year's supply of the
    Splenda granular!

    haven't looked around for the generic sucralose, didn't know it was
    available! oops

    yes, splenda was here for a good 8 to 9 years before the US approved it,
