Default Mi0...great replacement for Crystal Light

I was a camel in my last life, and have to force myself to drink liquids. Even delicious calorically heavy liquids, lol. I absolutely cannot choke down plain water, no matter how hard I try. Diet soda makes me bloaty, so I avoid it for the most part. About the only way I can get myself to drink anything is with Crystal Light. Crystal Light is great and all, but I've been getting tired of it.

Mi0 is a new product (just came out this month) that is 0 calories/serving. Basically you squirt however much you want of it in your water bottle/glass. And the flavor goes a long way, so you only need a few drops. I made the mistake of adding WAY too much my first bottle, haha.

I bought two different flavors. Strawberry watermelon and sweet tea. I haven't tried the sweet tea yet, but the strawberry watermelon was pretty dang good. I absolutely prefer it over Crystal Light.

Anyways...thought I'd spread the word

Here's the website with all the flavors on it --> http://www.kraftbrands.com/mio/

mkendrick, thanks for the post about Mi0! I was just reading PHAT's thread on water replacements, and several people commented on Mi0 but I wasn't sure what it was. I am definitely going to check it out.

Also, I'm happy to see a post from you! I have been thinking about you and hope you're doing well.

I'm in LOVE with Mio. I received a sample bottle as a Facebook freebie a few weeks back, and I've been hooked ever since. It's pretty cool watching it float down in the water bottle, too

Glad to hear you found a new calorie counting "helper". I drink water like a fish so it's not something I'd be looking for...But...

I'll have to try it. I have been drinking more plain water, but I always like having something to sip on, and I prefer a little flavor.

I saw this at walmart and considered getting it but it seemed expensive for a little bottle, but if a couple drops goes a long way i will def have to give it a try, especially since i use about 1/2 a crystal light mixer per bottle of water and keeping the other half from spilling until i refill my bottle is a pain, it definitely sounds more portable

I couldn't find it at Kroger. Is it where the Crystal Light is? Has anyone found it at a Kroger?

I went looking for some Mi0 yesterday, but couldn't find it. I am REALLY excited to give this stuff a try!

It was at a local store called ValuMarket here in Kentucky .. You might have to try a health food store if your local stores dont carry it..
