I recently went to Walmart and bought the sugar free flavored Crystal Light packets. I have up to three flavors... They are very delicious! All, I do is mix the flavored packet into cold water and I shake it up in my water bottle... I then will have an sugar free drink that is only 5 calories per serving.. I had the watermelon flavor today.. And it tasted so good! You add no sugar.. All you do is shake it up in cold water... And there you have it, your own personal favorite flavored water! Have you ever tried this before? I have also purchased the Crystal Light drinks that are already made flavored.. These are good too! I love to drink cool drinks and I love dong so, while being able to be healthy at the same time..

i have never seen those crystal light drinks you mentioned but we do get similar packets here which are of different flavours and you are quite right in saying that it tastes really good.

I use those kinds of flavored packets all the time, but I don't use the Crystal Light kind, I use the wal-mart brand, its cheaper and they are just as good as crystal light, we like to drink the Cherry flavored one, I've tried the Fruit Punch one but its really sweet for it to be sugar free, so we stick with the cherry. They are good tho, and its a good way to get your daily water intake, without the calories or the sugar and caffeine. Even my nephews will drink it, they think its koolaid...lol.

Yes, the Walmart brand is almost as the actual Crystal Light brand.. They do taste like Kool- Aid..

Yes, I love bringing the packets with me when I take trips. They are compact and unlikely to spill and make a mess, so if I just get a bottle of water and shake the mixture in I've got a delicious and fairly healthy drink. I really enjoy most of the flavors, but my favorite is the raspberry one.

Yes I have tried it and found it a little too sweet for my taste. I dilute it again and find it more refreshing. I suppose if you wanted it fizzy you could mix it in some club soda for a treat. It would still be low calorie. I am a big iced tea drinker though Crystal Light once in a while is a nice change.

Yes, I will admit that some of the flavors is very sweet. The orange flavor is very sweet. I have to put water in it too. That club soda sounds very enticing!

No, I have not tried that yet. I did mix my kids KoolAide into it on accident one day, talk about a very different flavor taste for them!

Yep, I have tried the crystal light flavored packets and it was so good. I had it once when I was working out. I brought the water and my sister brought the crystal light and gave me one. It was so good! Much more refreshing than plain water too.

Yes, it is very much refreshing than plain water is. I tried drinking the plain water, and I could not, it was so boring to drink it down. But, when I put in the packets, it was so delicious! I can have these any day now!

Yes, we drink Crystal Light all the time. We have the individual packets, and we make it by the pitcher everyday. My wife is diabetic so she has to drink stuff that is sugar free, she does not want to drink diet soda all the time so this works out really good, and is a good way to make sure you get enough water everyday. Wylers has similiar brands, and Walmart even has their own brand and it is much cheaper.

You are right! Wylers has delicious products too! I also like these.. It is great that your wife is taking care of herself!

Yes, I have and still do. I love them, all of the flavors are really good. I put one third of the package in a bottle of water. I do this until it's gone and open another.

Oh sadly we don't have products like that here in the Philippines. But we have powdered juices though they still needs sugar for taste, they too are good for drinking. I love to drink juices especially on hot summer days and while eating snacks. When I make juices I put it in the freezer first so its really, really cold. Sometimes the mixture gets harden and I'm like eating "ice candy". Ciao!

Me too love to drink cold drinks - and wish I could have made home made drinks so delicious to taste. I am glad to see that you have managed to keep calorie level within limit which is rather difficult when we purchase bottled coke.

I love crystal light drink packets! I have at least one a day. I like the orange tangerine grapefruit flavour the most, and usually have that one with my breakfast each morning. It really does make for a delicious drink. And the fact they're added in water bottles, makes it so easy to take them on the go. I often bring a water bottle on outings, and mix the drink later.

Yes, it is very convenient to have these.. I would love to have them, especially when I am out and about. I would love to have a cool drink to quench my thirst! I am glad that you enjoy it too! I believe that I love all of the flavors!

My son is diabetic and we use the Crystal Light packets all the time. He gets tired of "just water" and this is a nice change. We use the packets instead of soda. I like them myself but sometimes too much because we tend to run out often.

Yes, they are very delicious! I am afraid that mines will be running out very soon too! The box that I am using comes with 10 packets in it.. The way that I keep on drinking them, I know that I will be buying another pack or two before this month is out..

Hi cream97, No I have never tried theat one before and I have never heard of it either, maybe I will have a look around in our supermarket and see if I can find them. I drink water all the time so it will nice to have flavoured water. Thanks. Tamara

I usually drink just plain water but those packets are great! I buy the Walmart brand, though, they are just the same and cost much less. I think you probably do, too, but it's easier to say Crystal Light than Walmart's Great Value brand! I keep a couple little packets in my desk at work in case I feel like having some flavor, but I just love the taste of water!

I bought Crystal Light just last week. I am very familiar with the Walmart brand. I have bought generic brands many times.. I have no problem with buying it.. If, the flavor is something that I want to try, I take less interest on the brand name.. So, buying the generic brand for me, is no different than buying an name brand one. I like to try both of them. But, the one that I am referring to is indeed Crystal Light.. That is what I have in my kitchen cabinet as of now..
