ok if you like to screw with you friends and family and you dont mind being really cruel, i accidently stumbled upon the best trick ever!!!
been on a low carb diet for 8 months and dropped 40 pounds. i love sweet tea and normally use equal. today i made a gallon of tea realized i was out of equal and used a granulated "sugar" substitute (discovered later its sorbitol).
well, 1/2 gallon later my gut starts to feel strange. wondered if the wings i ate were bad. within a minute its run like hell to the head time. within 30 minutes i have had to sprint to the boys room multiple times. you see, sorbitol and other sugar alcohols (common in sugar free stuff) wreak havoc on you g.i. tract. the bacteria that live there apparently love this stuff and go quite crazy when it visits.
which brings my to the devious side of my mind. we are a family of pranksters and there is very little thats sacred or off limits. being from the south my entire family thinks sweet tea is the top section in the food pyramid. i do believe the next family function will be most interesting
