In brief: Not directly
Aspartame is an Amino Acid and cannot directly raise blood sugar.
But, it may increase cravings for other sweets or starchy foods, and if someone eats more carbohydrates than they planned to, that could lead to higher sugar levels.

In brief: Yes
Look at the carbs.
Sugars are just added in with carbs as they are a type of carb. The carbohydrates are what you should be paying attention to.
