A sweet tooth question. Is it just us humans...
« on: 03 November, 2017, 04:49:11 PM »

Is it just us humans who find artificial sweeteners (such as saccharine and aspartame) sweet?...or do bees and wasps also find artificial sweeteners attractive?  

Come to that, do any animals find artificial sweeteners sweet?  Or is it just  human taste buds that can be fooled by artificial sweeteners?
