I like the Crystal Light Peach Mango Green Tea. Ocean Spray is also making packets now that are pretty good, I especially like the White Cran Peach.

That only works if you have a fridge at work, unfortunately.

For the cost of a few boxes of flavour packets you could buy a Brita to keep in the fridge at work!

I like to drink diet snapple green tea. No calories, but has 60mg sodium.

I used to use Crystal Light Green Tea Peach Mango and the Citrus, but now I usually just drink straight up water:) emoticon

I like all the Crystal Light, and, even though I don't like tea, the Peach Tea flavor is great! There are some store brand versions and some of those are good, too. Grape is almost always a winner for me.

I love the crystal light cherry pomegranate the best, but the tangerine grapefruit is a close runner up! I use half a package for 500 ml, they are strong, but this way we get twice as much for the same price too. I don't use them everyday, just when I want a 'juicy ' drink!

Thanks for all the recommendations! I'm happy to know I'm not the only person who finds them too strong, too. I'll look for some of the brands/flavors next time I'm at the grocery store. :)

Just watch the amount of sodium in some of the brands - I prefer to squeeze some lemon or lime juice into my water.

I like Crystal light on occasion, but use less than half the recommended amount because I find them too strong. My favorite is probably the Wild Strawberry but the caffeine in it sends me bouncing!

You can also mix the raspberry lemonade with unsweetened ice tea.

I like propel powder pouches. 20 cal for one pouch.

I love the crystal light strawberry- at home just cut up three strawberries and put them in a pitcher in the fridge

I like the CVS brand EmergenC packets. Each one provides 1,000 mg of Vitamin C. The Pomegranite flavor is very strong, so one packet is probably enough for a large container of water. The pink lemonade flavor is more subtle.

I like the pink lemonade flavor as well. My favorite brand is Special K because it has fiber and protein; however it's much too expensive for my budget right now. For the time being I drink Great Value. The taste is great; it just doesn't have the extras. I put a pack and a half in a gallon jug of water so it's not too strong.

My favorite crystal light flavor is the ruby red grapefruit. Good with rum, too. LOL!

I love the pink lemonade flavoring

I just add to my bottle until it is sweet enough. I've noticed lately though that I can't drink it in the morning, it tastes gross and bitter, but around lunch or later it's just fine. Weird.

I have learned over time and drinking the water flavors on the go it is best to only use about a half a packet per bottle of water otherwise it is way to sweet even for my taste. I do not really pay for crystal light, but I do drink the great vaule kinds and I like the fruit punch, apple, grape, cherry cranberry these all seem to hit the spot for me, but like I said I would only use have a packet because they are extremely sweet for something that has no calories in it.

there was one "crystal light on the go" i tried that was 0 calories and included antioxidants...i believe it was pomegranate flavored...delicious but also strong, so either mix with more water or use half a packet.

I absolutely love the Crystal Light packets! My favorites are Wild Strawberry and Peach Mango Green Tea. I usually will add one to a bottle of water in the morning and then one in the afternoon. In between, I just drink plain water from the cooler that sits next to my desk at work. It really keeps me on track with my 8 cups of water a day!!

Can y'all recommend some flavors to try? When I'm at home, I have my Brita pitcher and don't need flavoring, but at the office, I have to get water out of the fountain. It is...less than tasty on its own. My water bottle holds three cups, but even if I fill it before I leave the house, I still refill it at least once at work. I've been drinking the raspberry Crystal Light ones, but I'm kind of bored with them. Recently, I tried the Hawaiian Punch ones and Oh My Gosh! They're sooo strong. The directions say to mix with a 16.9 oz bottle of water. I'm mixing with 24oz and it's still too strong! Maybe half a packet next time. *lol*
