SoBe lifewater -v- glaceau viatmin water zero

Ok both products list carbs, but no calories which throws me off right away lol.

SoBe ingredients look ok:
Ingredients
FILTERED WATER, ERYTHRITOL, NATURAL FLAVOR, FUMARIC ACID, GARCINIA CAMBOGIA RIND EXTRACT, XANTHAN GUM, CALCIUM LACTATE, POTASSIUM CITRATE, ASCORBIC ACID (VITAMIN C), REB A (PURIFIED STEVIA EXTRACT), MODIFIED FOOD STARCH, GUM ARABIC, L-CARNITINE, VITAMIN E ACETATE, CALCIUM PHOSPHATE, CALCIUM PANTOTHENATE (VITAMIN B5), NIACINAMIDE (VITAMIN B3), PANAX GINSENG ROOT EXTRACT, CHROMIUM PICOLINATE, PYRIDOXINE HYDROCHLORIDE (VITAMIN B6), CYANOCOBALAMIN (VITAMIN B12)

Vitamin water, not so much:
(bolded)why add fructose?

Reverse Osmosis Water, Less than 1% of: Rebiana (Stevia Extract) and Crystalline Fructose and Erythritol (Natural Sweeteners), Calcium Lactate and Potassium Phosphate and Calcium Chloride and Magnesium Lactate (Electrolyte Sources), Citric Acid, Natural Flavors, Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), Gum Acacia, Beta-Carotene, Sorbitol, Modified/Food Starch, Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide), Vitamin E (Alpha-Tocopheryl Acetate), Vitamin B5 (Calcium Pantothenate), Glyceryl Ester of Rosin, Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine Hydrochloride), Vitamin B12.

Which is the better choice?

I avoid both-the crystalline fructose in the Vitamin Water is a no go for me and the Sobe I haven't found one I like the taste of-too sickeningly sweet to me for some reason. Looks like they are not counting cals from the SAs? I prefer PowerAde Zero.

"Ingredients:

Water, Citric Acid, Natural Flavors, Salt, Potassium Citrate, Sucralose, Sodium Citrate, Potassium Phosphate, Acesulfame Potassium, Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Blue 1, Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12)"

I'll occasionally have a Sobe Zero Lifewater because I would want to avoid "crystalline fructose".

SOBE Fuji apple pear....AHHHH to die for! And the strawberry dragonfruit, and the mango melon. If they weren't so expensive I could drink a dozen a day! As it is, I dilute them half and half water once I drink down a half bottle. It tastes just as good to me, not as sweet.
