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.

Is MiO for everyone? No, but I love it!

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 never tried it, but have heard from others that it does take more than the suggested amount to make it take "good". I prefer to stick with my Crystal Light Wild Strawberry Energy Packet! :)

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)

My son uses it. I tried the black cherry. It's not too bad, but I didn't notice any effects from it.

DIET IS A FOUR LETTER WORD!!!!

We are constantly creating our "karma" or destiny through our intentions, thoughts and deeds in this moment. It is achieved through countless deliberate acts of selflessness.

It's hard to be happy with others if we are not happy with ourselves.

Just keep on moving and you'll get there.


If you ever want to feel good about yourself, go out and help someone else!

I never tried it but it's a little pricey for my liking - If I want to 'enhance' my water, I add a little grape, lemon or lime juice.

I don't like the taste of it. I went back to putting lemon in my water instead.

Someone at our office bought some and brought it to work. I tried it, but won't be buying it. I'm sure it depends on the flavor and the person's taste.

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
