I like sugar a lot more than most people, and I also eat sugar substitutes fairly often. Last week was my birthday party, and WilX gave me a really awesome present: Newtame, a chemical 8000x as sweet as sugar. It’s so sweet that 1oz sweetens 500lbs of sugar. I was afraid of breaking my taste buds, so I held off on eating it right away. Last night felt like the right time to try the super-sugar.

Afterwards, everything tasted sweet for hours. No matter what I licked.. my arm after I’d washed it.. the wall.. a glass of water.. it all tasted like sugar. Eating salsa and chips was pretty weird and terrible. We tried a bunch of random foods around the house. My taste buds rebooted by the time I woke up in the morning.
I did not get a crazy sugar rush from Newtame. It was an exciting taste experiment though!
