Crystal Light Pure Mixed Berry

Crystal Light Pure is the low calorie "naturally" sweetened alternative to the other Crystal Light drink mixes, which are normally sweetened with aspartame & acesulfame K. I've had mixed feeling about the different flavors of Crystal Light Pure that I've tried so far - I didn't like the Tropical Blend, and thought the Lemonade was okay - but not without some tweaking. This week, I tried the Crystal Light Pure Mixed Berry to see if there was finally a variety that I would enjoy.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1/2 packet (5 grams)
Calories: 15
Total Fat: 0%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 10 mg, < 1%
Carbohydrates: 4 grams
Fiber: 0%
Sugars: 3 grams
Protein: 0 grams

I have to say that this is short on any sort of berry flavor and long on the characteristic tart, citric acid taste ... but it was okay to drink, and maybe the best of the 3 Crystal Light Pure flavors that I've tried so far. A 1/2 packet serving of Crystal Light Pure Mixed Berry Drink Mix provides only 15 calories from 3 grams of sugars. The sweeteners used are sugar and rebiana (Truvia brand sweetener).

The ingredients are sugar, citric acid, malic acid, maltodextrin, calcium lactate, contains less than 2% of raspberry juice solids, natural flavors, rebiana (Truvia brand sweetener), potassium citrate, magnesium oxide, sodium citrate, dried radish, black currant, and apple juices (for color). The suggested retail price is $3.29 for a box with 7 packs - but I received samples for review.

Although I thought the taste wasn't horrible, I probably will not be buying this in the future. My favorite Crystal Light products are the mocktails (Appletini (Review), Margarita (Review) & Mojito (Review)).
