Any suggestions as to a generic term for those tablets you put into your cuppa to replace real sugar?
I think, down here, there are brand names such as Sugarine etc., but others call them saccharine tablets. Is that what you'd call them in the UK? I'm worried that if I write 'sugar pill' (as my mother calls them) in the sentence, then readers might think it has something to do with a diabetic's medicine or something else entirely. All answers welcomed. Thanks.
