Of sorts. While I was out I bought a bottle of Sparkling Ice, because I was thirsty and it had a screw-on cap (I didn't want to drink it all at once, and I didn't want to get any of the dirt that was blowing about in it. Very windy.) It's not bad, if you don't mind the taste of sucralose. Might be better with a shot of vodka in it, or maybe gin. Probably gin, as vodka doesn't have much taste to it but gin does, so it might hide the fake sweetness better.

I never buy any of these "0 calories" drinks with artificial sweeteners, they are not healthy at all. I would go for a drink with real sugar of for a flask of gin that I would share with you.

You are right, those zero calories are dangerous drinks. I can drink a gin Martini or a vodka with freshly squeezed orange juice, better than with artificial stuff added.

@LadyDuck It is proven since 2013 that sucralose is carcinogenic. Due to the business interests behind it, we will be happy if it is forbidden in 20 years. Look at glyphosate, it is carcinogenic and kills bees. It should have been forbidden last year in the EU but Germany delayed. We know the reason since a few days : Bayer is buying Monsanto, and Germany will probably continue to find the best reasons to not forbid glyphosate...

I have no intentions on trying any of the flavors I have missed. That one or two I tasted was awful to me.

@BarBaraPrz That is not a bad thing either. If you try something else let us know. Thank you.

@sharon6345 I mostly just get a tea but because this drink had a cap I could screw back on and put the bottle in my buggy without it spilling...

I know that I would have to be pretty thirsty to buy that stuff.

Why not gin without that thing added to it?

Normally, I wouldn't either, but I thought I'd try it.

I have tried a few but I didn't care for the after taste. I agree it may be better as a mix.

I have seen that in the store..never bought any though. If it shows up in the .25 cent bin at one of the stores I shop at fairly regularly, I will likely buy it!

Twenty-five cents? I wish! This cost me a dollar.

The Orange Mango is my favorite flavor of the Sparkling Ice. But there are several that we do like and get once in a while.
