Has anyone seen Sweet'N Low's new commercial, with Regis Philbin hacking to the Pink Panther, his cab driver, about how he doesn't want his coffee to taste like sugar, but wants it to taste like Sweet'N Low? My first reaction was: really? I just don't believe you.

20080923SweetNLow.jpgThe commercial is in celebration of Sweet'N Low's 50th birthday; no surprise then that the star, the ad, and the product seem a tad too reminiscent of another era—an era of canned casseroles and Wonderbread. In this green age, don't artificial sweeteners seem a bit anachronistic? Sugar is only 15 calories per teaspoon; why not do something REALLY old fashioned, and give that a try?

So, which sweetener do you prefer?
