Moving from Europe to the US in the early 1980s I found sodas here to be far sweeter than I was used to – same global brands, far different taste. I’d like to see just less sugar or sweetener, i.e. make the products less sweet and more flavorful, more interesting. Regarding Stevia, I’ve tried it and found it causes me to experience irregular heartbeat. Friends also reported the irregular heartbeat but prefer to live with it instead of giving up Stevia – for which they gave up sugar.

Xylitol does that, but it upsets your digestive system. Other plant sweeteners do not. They need to develop those instead.
