Stevia and chocolate are not really friendly...the sweetness always seem to carry a bitterness with that combination. A little salt added can help.
Its so strange...we all have individual perceptions to the taste/aftertaste of various sweeteners. What is perfect for one person may taste awful to another.
What I find works for me is to make a Truvia type blend of 1/2 tsp pure stevia extract to 1 C. powdered xylitol. ( I powder it in a coffee grinder so it will blend into everything easier--especially skinny chocolate!) They seem to cancel out each other's aftertastes for me. You could do a blend with erythritol too:
it would be 1 tsp stevia extract to 1 C. erythritol, since erythritol isn't as sweet on its own.
Monk fruit (luo han) is an approved sweetener. You just have to watch the additives. Nectresse contains sugar.

queen: Probably a good idea to start a topic asking about it. Generally, I think they want you to use the whole grains rather than something made from brown rice flour, but maybe there's more to know about it.

queen: Got a notice that the THM website is having a big cyber-Monday sale and are offering a couple new items. They have also introduced flat rate shipping. Time to stock up on that Gentle Sweet.

marmee: One question: if I have early morning coffee with coconut oil ( or if I choose cream) are they considered a snack, should I wait 3 hours before eating? If I eat an S meal soon there after am I ok? Would that be a problem if I eat an E meal soon after?

queen: You can post here if you like. But you can start a post by entering a forum (any of the linked titles above this shouting box). Once you are in the forum, you should see a "Create Thread" link in the title bar. Click that to get a posting screen.

queen: If you eat an S meal within an hour of your oil/cream coffee, it is all considered the same meal. Otherwise, you need to wait the 3 hours.

queen: If you are in weight loss mode, you avoid them. Maybe throw in one or two a month if you aren't losing well. It can help to shake things up and get losses started again.
