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.

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.
