Monk Fruit Sweetener - who's tried it?

chicgail | Nov 18, 201306:10 AM     17

I've noticed that there's a new sweetener being advertised that's made from monk fruit.

I tried - and hated - Stevia. I bought the stuff on a friend's recommendation, put it in my coffee one Saturday morning and couldn't get the nasty taste out of my mouth all morning through a whole yoga class. I came home and threw the whole box out.

I wanted to find out who among you has tried this new product and what you thought about it before I actually buy the stuff.

And BTW, what is monk fruit?
