Every now and then everybody gets tired of drinking just plain water, and for those of you that do, there is a solution! Water Flavorings! While there are many natural ways to flavor water (lime, lemon, grapefruit, even stevia!), there are also companies that have been working on products that will enhance or flavor water for you. The idea is that when you are out jogging, at work, or at play, and you don’t have access to natural ingredients to flavor your water, a liquid or tab enhancer can be quickly put into your water.
The number of these types of products has been increasing recently as people have sought healthier options to sugar-laden sodas.
Here are some of the choices when it comes to flavoring water…
1. MiO Liquid Water Enhancer – This product, from Kraft Foods was introduced in 2011 and comes in 6 flavors including sweet tea, peach tea, and strawberry watermelon. It is said to have no calories and no caffeine, and is sweetened with artifical sweetener acesulfame potassium and sucralose.
2. Dasani Drops – This product, from Coca Cola, is due out in October of 2012, and is meant to compete with MiO. It will come in four flavors – Pink Lemonade, Strawberry Kiwi, Pineapple Coconut, and Mixed Berry. Dasani Drops are liquid flavor drops meant to be put into your water . Each bottle allows for 32 servings and are said to have zero calories.
