Plenty of alternatives: Honey, corn syrup, glycerin, and various sugar alcohols such as malitol and xylitol. Xylitol (birch bark sugar) is another natural sweetener, about 50% the sweetness of table sugar, with a similar consistency.

Artificial sweeteners include Aspartame (brand names Equal or NutraSweet), saccharin (Sweet'N Low), and sucralose (Splenda).
