I am not a big pop drinker but got hooked on Diet pepsi while at work when doing WW. Now on Atkins I drink water like crazy but am glad to be able to have something different once in awhile. I like the singles packs of Chrystal lite but they have nutrosweet which is supposed to not be good.
AND I have not had a caffiene drink in over a week.
Can you imagine the first time someone brings Tea to work. I will be flying LOL

Thanks for the find jjcj! I too need a break from water and Diet Rite does have its days. The only flavor I can tolerate is Cola. So it will be nice to have other options. Now, If I'm lucky enough for a store to carry it around here :lol:

There is a brand of birch beer that is made of splenda I can't think of the name, it is pretty good. Can't wait to try the others. Diet Rite is okay but black cherry is getting old ya know lol.

OOH! I love orange soda! I've got to find this stuff! I used to drink it all the time. My BF at the time would always laugh at me because whenever we went out to eat, I'd ask if they had orange soda. Not many places do, unfortunately...

jj - are you in Canada? Whereabouts? I noticed that we (canucks) can find the orange crush and cream soda w/splenda - but not much else around here!

I have also been able to find the La Tortilla low carb tortillas and of course now we have Atkins breads/bagels and muffin mixes too....of course the bars are all over the place!

There is a canadian thread at (in the support forums upper right) which usually has lots of info on where you can find lc items!

I tried the Atkins blueberry muffins yesterday. They were EXCELLENT!!! :( But add that to the rest of what I ate and my carb count was outrageous (I didn't actually sit down and count it--was afraid to). :( Stepped on the scale this morning and I'm up 2 pounds. GRRR. So much for my losing streak. Back to stricter induction again. That's what I get!!!

I definitely plan on looking for that soda. There's nothing better (except maybe grape) for hot summers than orange soda :lol:

Be careful of those sugar alcohols! THey cause some people to stall, such as myself!
