So pleased with this product!!
I ordered this for the first time and I'm very pleased with this product. It is sweeter than other brands I've tried, and this price is excellent.

Won't be purchasing again
I have used this Stevia for years (great product...great taste) until recently when Swanson switched the packaging from a eye dropper top, which was sealed for safety, to a non-sealed flip-top cap with a small seal inside. The problem is...it isn't sealed; one bottle had leaked in the shipping box; another was leaking inside the cap when I opened it. There is no safety seal. A cellophane seal over the outside cap would make all the difference. I contacted customer service. Don't know that anything will be done. Without some assurance of product safety, I won't be purchasing.

This product is a good price and tastes good. It is slightly more convenient that the powdered form b/c it mixes easier. I will be buying it again.

Great . . . . I wish.
The sweetener is perfect. No strange after taste, no weird taste at all. Price is reasonable. I love it ! So why only 3 leaves overall? This product so desperately needs a new dispenser/bottle. The current bottle with eye dropper causes the product to pool in the dropper and inside the cap so that when it is replaced after use it leaks all over the bottle, adheres to the outside and a small puddle of sweetener develops quickly wherever it is placed. Has anyone in the company considered just putting a "shaker" dispenser in the top of the bottle . . . similar to hot sauce bottles?

tastes good but messy
I like having this liquid stevia around as one of my sweetener choices--but the bottle gets so messy. Please redesign!

I've tried several brands of Stevia. This one is the best, no bitter taste.

I've used liquid stevia from other companies for years and they all have an aftertaste if you put too much in. This one doesn't, though. I really like it except for the fact that I lose about a drop everytime I use it because the dropper is messy.

gel like mess in kitchen
I love swanson products. I never write reviews but I needed to comment on this product. I have been a KAL stevia user for years and I was very happy to see swanson carrying KAL now. I made a mistake and ordered this stevia and what a mess. It isn't as sweet as the KAL product, it is also a gel like substance that makes this bottle a complete mess. The top won't stay snug and where ever you put the bottle after use leaves a puddle of gel around the base of the bottle. Now I can't find the same KAL product here are the labels they ship now aren't the same as the ones shown on-line. Ugggggg.. I love carrying bottles of stevia with me couldn't carry this but didn't want to as the flavor is bitter. I ordered 10 of these at once and was forced through bitter coffee for a few weeks until I just tossed them and now am hoping that I can find the correct KAL on-line. Wish me luck.

Stevia products are not all equal. Some brands have bad after taste. Swanson Stevia is best tasting and a great price

I'm a longtime user of liquid glycerin-based stevia extracts. My favorite brand was forced to change their supplier or recipe, and I did NOT like the result - I was using twice as much and the sweetness came more as an after-taste. I shopped around and tried several different brands and formulas, and as an add-on to an order I placed at Swanson's, I tossed a couple bottles into my cart. I was SO delighted to find something just as good as my earlier favorite, and for a much lower price tag!

Great for using in my iced tea.
Since I can't have sugar, I love using this in my iced tea. The liquid with the dropper is so convenient, I can take it in my purse and have it ready to use anytime.

Excellent sugar substitute
We use this product regularly to sweeten yogurt, homemade ice cream, fresh fruit salads, smoothies and other beverages! It is a staple in our pantry. Thank you for carrying this product at a good price.

I chose this product because it was liquid stevia without alcohol. I was surprised that the clear liquid is pretty thick. The taste is good. It works perfect in morning shakes -

Best sweetener there is
This works so well in homemade lemonade and other drinks that need some sweetness.
Also add it to the steamed peas just before we eat them. We think it's wonderful!!!!!!

No after taste!
The liquid Stevia sweetens just like sugar but leaves no aftertaste! I love this product.

To me a 'product' is the whole, complete package acquired from the seller. So that includes both the packaging / container and what is inside.
The reason I titled this review: "SWEET DILEMMA" is because Swanson's Premium Alcohol-Free Liquid Stevia presents a conundrum, indeed. . . . A very sticky situation.
The ingredients are very good. Nice and tasty, properly sweet, easily miscible. However, the container / presentation is downright awful. The cap doesn't fit snugly, the dropper doesn't drop nicely --- it just sort of slops. The exterior of the bottle gets leaked on, sloppy, sticky, slimy, messy, and leaves its gooey mark wherever it sits.
All-in-all, this is not a user-friendly product --- even though the actual Liquid Stevia, once you put up with all that sloppy mess to actually get it out and into your beverage or whatever, is fine.
I seriously doubt if I will reorder this product unless its packaging and presentation are corrected. What a disappointment. I had high hopes for Swanson's Premium Alcohol-Free Liquid Stevia, so this mess makes it even worse. What to do, what to do?? A SWEET DILEMMA, INDEED.

Won't buy again
I purchase Swanson brands on most products almost exclusively and I have used Stevia for many years. I chose to try Swanson's Stevia this time and was extremely disappointed; it was very thick and adhered to the dropper, very hard to determine how much was even coming out at one time. (I use it to sweeten large amounts of iced tea etc.) The taste was great.

This is the best liquid Stevia I have ever used. I am on the Paleo diet and sugar is not an option for me, so I use Stevia in dessert recipes. This alcohol free liquid Stevia blends perfectly into melted unsweetened Chocolate and provides the perfect amount of sweetness. It is also wonderful in my morning coffee.

Alcohol free Stevia
I have bought a number of bottles of Stevia and thought I would try this brand, as it is cheaper. I found it too thick, the dropper doesn't work well, the liquid adheres to the exterior of the dropper and pours from it, instead of dripping out of it when it is supposed to. Very disappointed with this product and won't buy again.

This is a great value in the Stevia line. Love the zero calories and the sweetness! The only complaint I have is that due to the thickness and the eye dropper getting too sticky around the top rim which makes the bottle tends to leak a little. So not a good choice for carrying it in your purse! Otherwise this is great!

This is HANDS DOWN the only stevia product I will ever use. Unlike some powdered stevia products, there is nothing added to it. Unlike other liquid stevia products, there is no bitterness-- it is sweet, pure and simple! The dropper can get a little messy but just use it with care and keep the bottle clean and it's fine.

m not a big fan of any Stevia & much prefer Xylitol, as it tastes more liek sugar with no aftertaste, and it is so good for you. BUT, I DO very much like to have a Stevia that I can add ONE DROP to a glass of iced tea when I am out, or to add ONE drop if needed to other things.
THIS Stevia is the best as it is made with glycerin and ot the grapeseed oil or alcohol that makes it bitter.

Good Buy Good Value
With all the health hazards connected with multiple artificial sweeteners, this natural sweetening agent can't be beat in terms of quality at the best price.
