I have been using MiO since it came out and I absolutely love it. My favorites are the Fruit Punch and the purple one--can't think of the name right now. Personally, I prefer MiO to other drink additives because of a few things: my lips aren't stained by the dyes; I have more control over how much flavor I get; and the MiO is less messy - it's a lot easier to aim the little nozzle than try and get all that powder into a tiny water bottle hole.
Now, I do have to say that the MiO Energy that is out now is NOT for me, but I do like to add some flavor to my water just because it helps me drink more throughout the day and helps me kill me soda urges.
I like the Black Cherry and have picked it up lately. I squirt WAY more in the bottle than recommended. I might read that fine print again since our water bottles are like 17 oz... maybe it's one or two drops per 4 ounces or something.
Crystal Light is my absolute favorite and I should invest in them: Grape, Strawberry Energy (the citrus is OK) Ice Tea Lemon

We use it here. I prefer it to Crystal Light cuz I can control the sweetness of it. It is a bit pricey, but if you break it down compared to the packet drinks, it's probably about the same. I like to drink flavored water periodically.

I have used it and although it takes more than a "few drops" and is more like a "few squirts" it is palatable. Surprisingly it doesn't mix as well as the powdered drinks. I also don't like the choice of flavors. I have some left in my cupboard but will use it up and probably not buy more. Am saving what I have to flavor my shaved ice. Perhaps that will be more useful.
I don't mind artificial sweeteners when I have a craving for something sweet. I then don't need to eat as much junk.

I've tried it and like some of the flavors, but it's not something I use every day. However, I have to add WAAAAAY more than they say to make the flavor more than just a weak, "watered-down" taste (haha, ironic, isn't it? lol)

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 tml
