What's extra infuriating about the lack of Sweet 'N Low at Egg in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is that they give the illusion of being quite serious about coffee. Instead of serving just a cup, you get an entire French press pot, which is delightful for guaranteeing freshness, but not free refills. Not only that, but they actually sell bags of their beans, in case you enjoyed your coffee so much there that you'd like to recreate the experience at home. No thanks, Egg, since my coffee tasted like the fetid bongwater of Splenda, I'd rather bite the inside of my cheek then keep rebiting it accidentally for a week.
Lately, I've noticed more and more coffee shops that don't offer Sweet 'N Low - only sugar and Splenda.
I know ithe customer base of S'NL is mostly grandmas, but it's what I like in my coffee. I don't like real sugar, Splenda, or Equal. If you're a real sugar user, imagine that you were forced to use Sweet 'N Low instead. Gross, right? Well, that's how I feel about sugar and Splenda.
This blog is to warn fellow Sweet 'N Low users of places that don't cater to our kind. My hope is to shame these establishments into carrying the pink packets I love so dearly.
