I've been using it too . . and you're right too sweet if you use as directed.

I love the stuff. I have four different flavors. Two I keep at work to enhance my water during the day as it gets very hot in the bakery. I don't use as much as directed either as it tastes too sweet.

I use it and love it! I don't use as much as it says because I don't want it really sweet. I like it a lot better than Crystal light because it doesn't leave an aftertaste like CL does.

Hubby likes it.
I tasted a sip of what he had mixed - it was quite sweet, although apparently it's sugar-free.
Whatever it takes to get him to drink water, I guess. although, he does drink plain water, too - I think he just uses it as a "treat" on occasion.
At least it means less pop.

So I just checked out the link you sent, and it sounds a lot like Crystal Light, except the stuff is already in liquid form. I also read the "energy" version of MiO, and it sounds like you can turn your water into RedBull. Hmm.... I would have to wonder if you're consuming caffeine in your water, it's going to be considered a caffinated beverage, like tea or coffee or diet cola, and you would still have to drink an additional 8 oz plain water to dilute the caffeine ingested. That said, I've got a friend in Oromocto who'll probably love the energy versions. *snicker*

So if anyone tries it, let us know what you thought!

I haven't heard of it either. Did you like it?

I use only 1/3 of a packet of Crystal Light (makes 500ml flavoured water) packets when I make a glassful. I'll have to find a little time to look up that link, kinda curious about the nutritionals.

I saw it at the grocery store the other day but I wasn't impressed with the two flavors that they had there. I'll have to check out your link to see if there are any others.

Has anyone heard of this stuff? Sounds similar to Crystal Light but only needs one or two drops of liquid to flavor a glass or bottle of water. One of the guys my office said he bought it at Walmart over the weekend. Here is a link I found: http://www.kraftbrands.com/mio/about_mio.h
