Sorry I’m getting this posted so late! Busy, busy, busy getting ready for my trip, both at home and at work. Why are vacations so stressful!?! Anyways, better late than never, I suppose.
I like drinking water, because I really like how I feel when I know I am well-hydrated. But I think most of us can agree that water can get boring after awhile. Because of that, my water intake tends to fluctuate day-to-day depending on how motivated and focused I am in drinking the 64+ oz recommended by experts. Anything to make drinking water more interesting is ok with me. I used to use those Archer Farm (Target brand) powdered water flavoring packets (usually the strawberry lemonade flavor), which were ok, but after awhile I got tired of the chalkiness that you could sometimes taste as you drank it. Crystal Light has a similar product, which I haven’t tried, but I imagine the same complaints would apply.
I had heard about MiO Liquid Water Enhancers before, but the $4 price kept me away until our trip to the grocery store last Friday. While Tadd was getting his 2 liters of soda in the drink aisle, I happened to notice that they were on sale for $3.79 and there was a tearpad of $1 off coupons. I thought $2.79 was a much more reasonable price than $4, so I decided to give it a try. I chose the Berry Pomegranate flavor.
I have to say that I really like this stuff! I put two squirts into my 20 oz water bottle, and it is the perfect amount of flavor! It doesn’t taste like sickly-sweet Kool-Aid, but also not boring like plain water. And since it’s already liquid, there’s no chalkiness. And I love anything pomegranate, so this flavor works great for me. Although I must say that now I am curious about the peach tea flavor. It makes my water-drinking experience much more enjoyable. I also love that each squirt is portioned, but if you want more flavor, you can just add another squirt. Very easy to customize the flavor intensity that you want.
If you can get your hands on one of those $1 off coupons, this is definitely worth a try!
