Flavored Water

I was in the store the other day and while I was getting some things that I knew I had to get I discovered something. It spiked my curiosity so I bought it. It was only $3.28 I believe.  It is “flavoring you add to water” to make it taste good. Now I know there are a lot of flavors that you can buy for water. I grew up on Kool-aid, thank you very much. This stuff actually is not bad for you.. the name of this “miracle flavor” is –>Mio Liquid<–. It comes in a tiny 1.62 fluid ounce bottle that is good for 24, 12 ounce bottles of water…You do the math.


Twenty four bottles of flavored water would normally cost you what? Around Three dollars a bottle, if memory holds true. But I bought this flavoring, which, by the way, comes in six different flavors that I could tell. I bought this tiny bottle for $3.28 , which will flavor up to twenty-four bottles of water…..That means that each bottle of water I flavor is only costing me .13 cents a bottle! Thirteen cents a bottle of flavored water! WOW. If I bought a case of the normal flavored water at a discount price of $1.98 a bottle, that equals $47.52!

OK, ladies and gentleman, I saved the best for last. As if saving $44 dollars is not enough, it even gets better! I read the back label this tiny flavor bottle, “fruit Punch” is what I bought. The back label states: Calories 0; Total fat 0g (0%DV); Sodium 0mg (0% DV); Total Carb 0g (0% DV); Sugars 0g; Protien 0g. OMG! Absolutely nothing described here that would ward off any reason not to try it. Like the old Alca-seltzer commercial – “Try it, you’ll like it…So I tried it……”


I have been waiting on something like this to get produced because I need to drink a lot more water than my usual one glass per day ritual. The reason I don’t drink water is because there is no taste. I have become spoiled being on this earth for 1/2 century. Give me something that taste good, I’ll drink it all day long. I do drink a lot of coffee, but now I have to wean myself off of my morning favorite cup of java. Or at least cut way back. This flavoring just may be the trick that I need, the spark to ignite my passion for water..


I hope that you are not stuck in a similar situation. If you are, then do as I did. It will work because it does work. Have a wonderful day!
