I’m not a water drinker and I’ve tried everything to make it more palatable. I’ve added every fruit and veggie I can think of, nothing really helps but I chug it down because my body needs it, not because I enjoy it.
Until now, adding Crystal Lite was my option of choice, and those powdery chemical packets make me cough. But there is a better way and I’m a little late to the ballgame with this one. I only discovered Mio because my friend, Trish, brought me some over to try.
Okay, so this isn’t perfect, because it also has the dreaded chemicals, but let’s face it, what do we actually put in our mouths that’s really pure. Mio has no sugar, no calories, it’s portable, you can carry it in your purse, all you need is a bottle of water and you’re in business.
Here’s the nutritional breakdown for my favorite flavor, the Orange Tangerine:
Water, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Gum Arabic, Sucralose (Sweetener), Contains Less than 2% of Niacinamide, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Natural Flavor, Sucrose Acetate Isobutyrate, Yellow 6, Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Sorbate (Preservatives).
And now for the good stuff, the flavors: There are lots to choose from and you can squirt more than one flavor in your water. My favorites so far are the Orange Tangerine (tastes just like Tang, remember Tang?) and the Cherry Blackberry. I’m looking forward to trying the Cranberry Raspberry and the Berry Pomegranate when I go to the store. I tried the Mango Peach and wasn’t a fan, but the Orchard Apple also sounds good and hubby is a Fruit Punch guy, so that’s on try list, too.
Okay, so if you’ve been under a rock and aren’t familiar with Mio either, it’s at your grocery store, with the drink mixes. It comes in these little containers, you just flip the lid and squirt it in your water, as much as you want to get the desired flavor.
They have different types, original, energy, fit, the ones I’ve tried are the original. You can read more about them here
Here’s a flavor list, pick some up the next time you’re at the market and see if you’re a fan as well. It’s good stuff!
