I was so looking forward to this drink, but it was undrinkable. As I was making it, I realized it was taking 8 packets of Splenda to make 1 Tbls. When I figured out that meant I would be putting 24 packets in just 4 cups of coffee, I knew that would be WAY too sweet for me. I decided to cut the amount in half and then add more after if I needed to. But, even with only 12 packets used, it was too sickeningly sweet for me or my kids, and we had to dump it out. I also had trouble with the Splenda and honey turning to "cement" in the bottom of the coffee pot when the coffee hit it. Therefore, I would recommend adding it to the brewed coffee, AND cutting the Splenda back to only 4-6 packets for the whole pot until you have tasted it. I think it has potential, but this recipe needs some major tweaking.
