Still not sold on stevia, but these drops help make it bearable.
One of the few flavoured stevia products I like!
Posted by LessSugarNaturally on Jun 12, 2013
I’ve been using stevia products since January 2012 and have done a lot of baking and research about it. The stevia leaf has about 10 components. SweetLeaf's sweetdrops are made with the FDA approved sweetener "High purity steviol glycoside extract" which is made from 2 components of the stevia leaf....approximately equal parts Stevioside and Reb A. There are more refined stevia products out there and also more whole forms of stevia. Flavored Liquid Stevia Extract is simply stevia extract with added flavors, spices in such small amounts that they are not required to be listed in the ingredients. To be honest, after months of experimenting, I'm not a big fan of flavoured stevia from any company. I much prefer using natural flavours in my baking and beverages. That said, the Chocolate Sweetdrops are one of three flavoured stevia products I buy regularly. I use it in my chocolatey greek yogurt and chocolate chip cookies. I did compared SweetLeaf's Chocolate Sweetdrops and NuNaturals Cocoa Bean Extract in my cookie recipes. SweetLeaf is milder but sweeter. NuNaturals has a much more intense...deep cocoa taste. In fact, you can actually see the cocoa settling on the bottom of the NuNaturals bottle. I think this one comes down to chocolatey bitterness preference. The other two flavoured stevia products I love: NuNaturals Vanilla Stevia (Check on my review) and NuNaturals Peppermint Stevia. I live in Canada and have received all of my iherb orders within 2 weeks. Feel free to check out my other detailed reviews on products like stevia, baking staples and low-toxicity beauty products and do let me know if you found this review helpful :)

Perfect as a sweetener in chocolate cakes or alikes
Great sweetener with a subtle chocolate hint

I have heard others complain that the chocolate taste from this isn't as strong as it should be, but I don't find that to be the case - probably because I use it more to *enhance* the flavour of chocolate. I add it to products made with cocoa powder and it adds just enough sweetness for my tastebuds. No bitter aftertaste, at least not in my experience with this flavour and with this brand. A few drops are all you need for a single serving of whatever it is you're making or eating. A great product, overall, and one that I've ordered again. (Though, one bottle lasts so long that I've only had need for two for the past year... and that is including some serious baking!)
