Do you belong to a family that invented a wildly popular artificial sweetener? Were you disinherited from the family fortune? If so, you will love this tale involving sweeteners, corruption, and family conflict. If not, you may still enjoy reading the story of someone who was disinherited (the author) from the Sweet 'N Low fortune.
