We all know how good water is for your skin, body and general sense of wellbeing. Here’s the thing, though: I don’t like drinking water. Not on its own, anyway. And it’s not that I dislike it – I mean, what’s to dislike? – it’s just that water is boring, so if I’m not feeling particularly thirsty, I’ll struggle to drink as much of it as I should. And even if I am thirsty, I’ll generally try to go for something that actually tastes of something before I reach for the water…
Enter Crystal Light, with their vitamin enhanced drinks, which claim to take your water from "pale to pumped". These little sachets can be poured into bottled water, giving it flavour and vitamins. They’ve just added three new varieties to their lineup:
Focus Citrus Splash
Metabolism + Peach Mango Green Tea
Red Tea Mandarin
So far my favourite is the Red Tea Mandarin, which is caffeine free and contains a mix of green and white tea fortified with antioxidant Vitamins A, C and E. Oh, and it’s absolutely delicious, and a great (not to mention healthier) alternative to my usual coffee on these warm days we’ve been having recently.
I’ve been trying out the "on the go" packets, which are designed to be poured into bottled water and drunk, well, on the go, but the drinks come in ready to drink bottles and individual tubes, too, each of which contains less than five calories.
