anyone tried mio liquid water enhancer?

i found it at walmart tonight in the drink mix aisle - it's little bottles with liquid flavor that you squirt into water - sweetened with sucralose. i got berry pomegranite and peach tea. i've just tried the berry one - i think i squirted in a little too much - it's very inexact. but i think they have potential. i'd love to hear what others think about the other flavors.

i'm not sure! the flavor is strong which is good i guess - not watered down tasting at all - seems to be really concentrated. it's a little sweet but that might be because i used a little too much. it's a perfect size to keep in your purse which will be nice - right now i always have a box of cran-lemonade in my purse - kinda bulky. lol.

LOL...I'm not unaware of all things FB....I actually have had an account for years but deactivated it a while back. I began to realize how foolish it was (for me) to waste hours of time reading about what people were eating for supper or how many loads of laundry they were doing! lol So, I got rid of it

I actually do think it's silly that companies want you to "like" them on FB in order to order a sample or a coupon. But that's just totally my opinion and not even worth .02

.....I know fb can be ridiculous. My daughter & I just made one for my husband last week. We told him he needed a fb in order to upgrade to a smart phone....I just wanted the "married to" thing added to my fb and a cute pic of him....haha! (im evil that way).

I get what you mean about the sample but fb is so big now that companies probably reach more ppl that way.

BTW Kari....I still write checks!!! It was all I could think of as a comparison!!!

Silverorchid anxious to hear what you think of the Peach tea - I think it tastes like a chlorinated pool smells...:-0

Somehow it wasn't awful - I drank it with tap water and no ice which could have hurt the flavor. I had the berry pomegranate again tonight and it's good. Sure was easy just having it my purse and giving a few little squirts to suit my taste.

I have the strawberry watermelon and really like it. I just use 1 quick squirt in my 16oz bottle and its perfect. I don't like a lot of flavor so it was perfect. I love the cute little bottle and I will probably get more when I see for sure how long this lasts since its over 3 bucks a bottle. I'm anxious to try other flavors. I love that its liquid so no carbs or cals like the powdered ones. I use a couple of those per day.

I really liked the peach! Didnt get a pool taste at all lol but I only used 2 little squirts and it was strong enough for me.. I dont like things that are really strong.. I am looking forward to trying the strawberry watermelon..

I saw a commercial on TV for this yesterday.
I can't do the Crystal Light and other single pack water flavors because they all are sweetened with aspartame.
I was please to see that the MiO is sweetened with Splenda.
I'll have to get some to keep in my purse.

My daughter and I finally got up the nerve to try it (Berry Pomegranate). Four quick squirts into our 28-oz bottles...yum!

(And no, artificial colorings don't bother me. I survived black liquorice ice cream each summer in Leavenworth, WA, as a kid. That stuff was insane.)

I got the strawberry. To me, it's pretty good as long as I use enough. When I tried just a little in a 20 oz bottle of water, it almost tasted fishy.

Found the MiO at Kroger today.
$3.49 and on the display were coupons for $1.00 off. I got the berry/pomagranate and was very pleased. Just one squirt was enough in a 12 oz. glass of water
