For health reasons, my husband and I are always looking for sugar free alternatives to beverages. Yes we love water — even lightly flavored waters like carrot or citrus. But that doesn't mean we're not always on the lookout for something new or fresh, especially if it doesn't rhyme with Scystal Schite. We've tried many different drink additives over the years and most are ok, but never great. They always leave behind some sort of artificial or overly sweet taste that makes them a little off putting. Persuaded by the new marketing campaign that Kraft Foods has put out for their new MiO Liquid Water Enhancer, we were pleasantly surprised when we came across it at our local grocer this weekend.
This small egg like container makes 24, 8 ounce servings and doesn't need any refrigeration once opened. It has a fun flip top cap and doesn't involve any additional packing for inside materials as you just squirt it out directly into your glass. We were skeptical, we were intrigued... and then we tried it!
Not being a fan of other varieties of this sort of product we were actually surprised. The Fruit Punch was, well Fruit Punchy and the Mango Peach was Mango Peachy. They didn't taste like sugared Kool-Aid might (as they often taste like the 4 cups of sugar that are in them), and they didn't taste "fake" like Crystal Light often does. They were just nice. They didn't coat your tongue or taste like artificial sweeteners and my husband and I both agreed that they would make a great addition to your desk drawer at work or possibly even a bag, purse or car if you're on the go.
