Just wondering if anyone in Canada (specifically Alberta) knows where to pick up MiO Liquid - or if it is even available here yet? I bought 2 little bottles when I was in Helena, Montana this past fall and am just about out. Love it! TIA for any suggestions you can offer.:^:

I am not 100% sure, but I do believe we don't have Mio in Canada since I heard that from many Canadians, they said they got it from the US while on a trip.

But don't quote me on that since I am not 100% sure but I think so.

If that is the case then I am hoping I can get someone just across the border willing to courier me some? Or is anyone is going for a cross-border trip sometime soon then maybe bring some back for moi? Pretty please? Wink wink nudge nudge!;)

I sometime use Crystal Light with Splenda. You can find them in almost all supermarket in here. But please make sure to read Splenda on the packet as we are not supposed to have aspartame and not all of them are sweetened with Splenda, but those who are, it is written on the box.

There are only a few. The acai white peach papaya and a triple berry (or something like that) in the individuals and the one that has pomegrante in the full jug size all have splenda. I find them at Walmart and Superstore.

You are correct not in Canada yet! hoping in the near future as I saw an ad on tv for this new water additive and it was MIO didn't see whether it was a canadian channel though. I bought mine in the states.

I posted a message on their facebook page so see when they think they will come to Canada. We'll see what they say.

Done deal! Love the Mango Peach... and the Fruit Punch isn't too bad... those were the only 2 flavors the store had when I was there so not sure what other flavors there are?

E-mail me privately when you have a moment lorette@lorwinshelties.com and we can figure it all out! Thank you!!!!!

And yes, I too have seen the TV commercials but.... sigh....

Hello Gorgeous,

We have plenty of Walmarts in here, but can you please specify a little bit more as to what you got in the Walmart brand? Is it powder you add to water or is it liquid drops? I guess it is the brand ''Great Value'' since this is the Walmart brand. I frequently go to Walmart, I have never seen anything like this and also, I heard lots of people saying they buy the EAS shakes from there, and never ever have I found them.

Hi, the peach mango is so yummy! I got walmart brand yesterday and am going to try lemonaid and two others. I found it by the crystal light. I use the Whey protein power from walmart, it's by the diet aids in the pharmacy area.

Thanks!

its a liquid you squirt in your water or what ever to flavor it. 0 cal, 0 at, 0 sug, 0 carbs; great flavors! Found at Walmart by the crystal light isle.

Its a liquid drop in a little bottle, it was near the crystal light. I picked up cherry limeaid last night, its good. The EAS drinks are usually in the pharmacy near like ths slim fast products, at least here they are. Did you ever ask an associate if they carry it? Just a suggestion :)

This is exciting, I didn't know there was a Walmart brand comprable to Mio. I did notice last night at Walmart that they didn't have as many Mio flavors as they used to...I guess they are making room for their brand.

I'm in!!!!! I would like 2 of each of them! ;0) I actually went to WalMart last night as someone mentioned that she had found them in her WalMart (in Canada) but alas - nothing there... ended up buying the Nestea ones made with sucrolose - the powdered individual ones but they also had liquid ones (only 2 flavors) but were over $1 more than the powdered ones and make the same amount (yep I'm on a budget! LOL!) They are just for a treat once in a while and not a daily thing so will last a while.

Pattie - I can send money before your trip if you'd like - and enough for shipping here to Alberta as well if you'd like! :hug:

I never asked, but I assumed since I looked in more than a Walmart, in the province of Quebec and also in Ontario, that they don't have it. I buy my protein bars from there, the best deal ever, less than a dollar per bar :).

As for the liquid drop, I shall look for that, thank you very much :) and have a great day.

That's ok Lorette! I'll post after I get home (Easter break) and if have found some, I'll stock up and let everyone know! What if I can't find it then I'd have to mail back your money, so we'll sort it out after! No worries! And hopefully I find some!!

Perfect! Thanks for doing this - if I go stateside this fall I will do the same in return! ;0) Travel safe and we'll talk after Easter break! ;0) PS Mango Peach is currently my fav!:D

I just ordered some MiO off of Ebay, so hopefully it gets here with no problems. I hadn't heard of it until reading this thread, but think it could provide some nice variety in the water consumption part of being OP. I ordered one of each flavor and am excited for it to come!!!

I have it in every other liter of water that I drink, some have it in every glass

Also are the EAS drinks and bars in Canada? I can only find the Adkin Advantage bars and drinks at the WalMarts I checked. I didn't try the drinks but got the bars. I didn't like them at all and gave them to my son. He wasn't too enthused either but didn't look a gift horse in the mouth.

I usually use stevia in my water and I love it. Is this the same thing? Is it a good sweetener?

Newbie here - what is MIO?
Thanks!

Mio is a liquid water enhancer. It's a Kraft product here and comes in 6 flavors. You can use a little or a lot to your taste and should be able to use about 24 times per bottle. It's a bit over 3 dollars in AL where I live.

Google MIO and it'll show what it is and it's also got a FAQ

:)
