I wonder why you can't use these flavors for water if you can use them for coffee and tea?

From their site:

"All Natural Water Flavors - Coming Soon!

Our water flavors are a brand new concept. Giving you the option to "Flavor Your Water" on demand, and to think, without any fats, calories, or sweeteners of any kind. [COLOR="Red"]Our Flavor Drops for Water are very different from our base flavorings, by adding the perfect blend of citric acid [/COLOR](natural acid derived from fruits for taste) along with the flavoring, you will be amazed at how sweeteners are really not required.

I received mine today (much sooner than I had expected)...

I tried the marshmallow first - OMG...I am a marshmallow fiend (fluffernutters, s'mores, mini marshmallows in my hot cocoa, you name it!). It tastes just like marshmallows. Two thumbs up.

and I also tried the butterfinger per Mule_Freak's request, but I'm not so thrilled...not bad, but I wouldn't have guessed butterfinger after tasting it. Really hard to put my finger on the taste/smell...caramel-y.

Tomorrow I shall try Boston Creme Pie and Rocky Road...

...stay tuned.

REGULAR FLAVORS: Blueberry; Banana Cream; Butterfinger; French Vanilla; Klua & Cream; Raspberry; Strawberries & Cream; Strawberry Cheesecake

PREMIUM FLAVORS: Cream Soda; Root Beer Float; Cinnamon Sticky Bun; French Toast

Gonna put them in egg creams; cream cheese clouds; coffee; water; everything!

FYI, I EMAILED THEM FOR THE INGREDIENTS SINCE THEY ARE NOT ON THE WEBSITE:

Hi HB
Our flavor drops are nothing more than just flavor.
For example: Hazelnut will contain:
Distilled Water, Propylene Glycol, Natural & Artificial Flavor.
Our Flavor Drops Premium are only Natural Flavor (no artificial flavor),
but honestly, doesn't make a difference since our use-level is so low.
Our flavors are so concentrated that very little iS required. For example, coffe/tea 3-4 "drops"
We avoid preservatives, by reducing the amount of water content in the product, also we use Propylene Glycol just as the carrier to dissolve the essential flavor oils, etc.
Hope this helps,
-tom

I hope I a am not out of line, but have any tried "True Lemon" or "True Lime" for water flavoring. I think the flavors are true and very nice in water. The pkts are 0 sugar, 0 carb.

True Lime, True Lemon I purchased at Edmonton Safeway. Ingredients:Citric acid, Lactose, Dried Lime (Lemom) juice, Lime (lemon) oil,Maltodextrin, Ascorbic Acid. The pkts are 0.7grams of powder which will flavor 300 to 600ml of water. Needs no sweetener. You can use these for cooking also--2 pkts. equal one TBLSP juice. I have used them in single serve cheesecake ect.
I found the product by accident on a web search.

Rocky Road - Fairly non-descript honestly. I used it in my coffee, let it sit a while to dissipate and I could smell it, just couldn't taste it.


Boston Cream Pie - this is pretty accurate. Or maybe like a cream filled doughnut...droolz....

So glad I ordered this! I got addicted to Bucca di Beppo's Pistachio Gelato this fall, so I hope the drops will taste like it!

I decided to try Capella's Fall Harvest, which is supposed to be like a different kind of apple pie! So I have a total of 13 flavors coming sometime next week!!!!

I want them all... Now I wish I'd ordered Boston Creme Pie, since someone said it tastes like a cream-filled donut!

Also, I asked if they would consider making Cake Batter and Cotton Candy flavors (my favorite ice cream flavors) and they're both in development!!!!

I'm really loving the creme brulee in my chocolate almond breeze right now. It has a wonderful flavor!

The butterfinger is supposed to be awesome from what I've heard, so that's on my long list when I reorder.....and that'll probably be this week!

Cookies n Cream: chocolate-y, but that's about all I'm picking up on.

Banana: <Let me admit my bias first off, I banana flavored things> This is really good. I miss banana flavored ice cream and this flavor is smooth.

I'll have to try this. I'm doing a sort of "egg cream without the egg" thing in the evenings with either chai, Yogi Indian Spice tea, or Good Earth herbal, and some kind of flavoring. It's ohsogood.

Hmmm...do you let it sit a while? I know there's a little note on the side about letting it sit...I usually get a good flavor from 4 drops.
