I'VE ALSO CONTACTED THE SODA POP,COFFEE,& EVEN BEER MAKERS IN HOPES THAT THEY MIGHT CATCH ON & HAVE CONCENTRATED SMALL BOTTLES TO ADD TO CARBONATED/SELTZER WATER.I'D RATHER CARRY A SMALL BOTTLE THAN 24 PACK OF POP/BEER.I REALLY HOPE THEY CONSIDER MY IDEA I THINK IT WOULD DEFINTELY REPLACE THE CANS & BOTTLES.

I have not seen Crystal lite with Splenda in my area. I drink one cup of coffee, water and one tea Crystal Light daily.
I thought I saw an ad in a magazine that Crystal Lite is now made with Splenda (???)

I like Pure Lemon - I also like the various Hawaiian Punch flavors, or crystal light... fresh fruit like limes or lemons... they all work well
Water tastes like metal to me, so it is very hard for me to drink plain.

Water is always the best choice :-) As a former sodapop addict, I have learned to l-o-v-e sparkling water (it was the carbonation I craved, more than the sugar), and I also like to add lime to plain filtered water.
I also want to mention - since the subject of artificial sweeteners comes up a lot and is a concern to many, including myself - that if something is labeled 'sugar free' it most likely has artificial sweetener in it. If that's not a concern for you, then go for it. But don't be fooled -- always read labels; when something says 'sugar free' don't assume that it has no artificial sweetener in it.
Oh, and be careful with Mio. I don't know from experience, because I can't tolerate the taste of or I get nauseated from artificial sweeteners, but more than one person has told me that too much Mio will... erm, how do I put this delicately... make one's bowels loose (!)
I started by making it half strength...and now I water it down even more. Then you can transition to more pure water.

I use the Target sugar free tea peach or lemon tea, I don't think it has any artificial sweeteners so you can try those if you are concerned over that aspect. I can't drink plain water either so it helps to get the liquid in for the day~

Becky is correct! I use Crystal Light and I've found that I don't add as much as I used to. It sure does help to drink down that water!
If plain water is difficult for you to tolerate, then using the artificial sweetener-flavoring is a good fix. You may find that you do not even need to add the whole amount listed....just a little sprinkling can do the trick.

Crystal Light is certainly better than NOT drinking water, but plain water is always your best choice. I think it's because the Crystal Light has artificial sweeteners.
With that said, I'm a firm believer in moderation in everything.
