Default Fruit2O

This sounds like a fabulous food find for me, as I just discovered I need to quadruple my fluid intake. Don't like soft drinks, coffe or tea, so my options are somewhat limited. I do like fruit juices, that's why this product appealed to me - spring water, natural fruit juice and Splenda. No calories.

Has anybody tried this? Comments?

Thanks.

I'm probably the only person in the world who doesn't like it....I think it tastes too sweet. But it's .98 for a liter bottle at walmart...I add extra lemon to it.

I don't like it either - too sweet in that "artificial sweetener" kind of way.

I like Glaceau Fruit Water - not sweetened, just flavored. I find them very refreshing.

Aquafina has a new flavored water. Have not tried it yet though.

I like Fruit20 and I also found a Dansani Raspberry flavored water that I really liked. I don't drink pop either so it was a good find for me....Sis

I like the fruit2o as well but can't seem to find it here in Canada.

I prefer the Dasani over the aquafina but nestle has put out one called Pure Life which is my favorite, especially the mandarin orange

I haven't tried the F20 but I have tried the new Aquafina and Dasani. It's so weird because I love Aquafina (the plain water) and hate Dasani but I love the Dasani flavored water but not the Aquafina!

You may also want to try Gatorade's Propel. They have several great flavors, like Strawberry-Kiwi and Grape. I think that they taste good and I like to refill the empty bottles with water because you can still taste the Propel flavor after you refill it the first time.

I like the Dasani raspberry, but it's hard to find especially in a 6-pack. The fruit2o is pretty good, too.

Anybody know a way to flavor our own water (other than a piece of lemon or lime)?

One of my favourite things to drink is club soda with about 1tbsp of Rose's lime cordial (basically lime syrup). Ribena brand black currant syrup is good in water too

I have found both these items at local grocery stores and health food stores. Sometimes Ribena is sold at drugstores too.

I love F20 lemon. It's my favorite.

So there's F20, Dasani, Aquafina, Gatorade, and Nestle. My friend Kristin drinks the Dasani all the time (it's actually sold at vending machines at my high school), yet Clara hates it.

I'll try all of them to see the difference. Maybe it could be an experiment!

I love Fruit2o, Crystal Light, Fuze Slenderize, Diet Rock Star (Energy drink) and Minute Maid Light. I love to try all kinds of different drinks since I don't like water much and never cared much for sodas.

I LOVE the Dasani raspberry. And I'm not even a big raspberry fan.

I don't like any flavored water... they all taste to fake-sweet for me.

I do love just plain carbonated water, though.

I have tried Dasani and Nestle as well as F20. Dasani is the best. It is sweetened more, but it is good. F20 pales in comparison to it, and Nestle is somewhere in the middle (better than F20, not as great as Dasani). It is kind of bland.
