    I was at the local Target and found packets of water flavoring called Water Sensations. They are flavored with Sucralose (Splenda). They are about $4 for 16 servings (each serving is for 2 cups of water). I bought Strawberry Kiwi, Grape, Lemon, and mixed berry. The mixed berry and grape tasted good. They also tasted good when I mixed the flavors with fruit protein flavors. I'll try the others alone and with some BCAAs and post if anyone is interested.

    The review above also mentions a product called True Lemon.

    I haven't bought it yet but I will look out for it. They have free samples here:

    Hey, I've never seen those :coold:

    For those asking questions- there is no phenylalanine in crystal light. It has aspartame, which breaks down in the body into phenylalanine; this is only a concern if you have phenylketonuria.

    But regardless- I like sucralose taste-wise, I'll have to look for these.

    I get a kick of of sucralose.

    "Comes from sugar." Yes, sugar that you changed drastically. Covalently bonded chlorines...and you expect the body to have an efficient way of getting rid of this. Efficient as in harmless. Bha.

    I really like Crystal Light and have never had any problem with aspartame or splenda in it, or diet drinks. I'll have to keep an eye peeled.
