Crystal Light White Tea Blueberry On the Go Packets Review

Crystal Light On the Go packetsEver on a quest to drink more water, I'm always eager to try new flavors of Crystal Light and related 'flavored' water beverages. When I saw Crystal Light On the Go packets offered in a White Tea Blueberry flavor, I was quite intrigued, after all, blueberries and white tea are both touted as providing great health benefits, and the giant "ANTIOXIDANT" written across the top of the package is certainly appealing. The box of 10 packets cost about $3.99 at the grocery store, so I decided to give it a shot.

One of the nice things about Crystal Light is that each 2-serving packet provides only 10 calories total (5 calories per serving). You can add the powder to any amount of water, depending on how much flavor suits you. Excited to try the new flavor, I emptied the packet into a 16.9-ounce bottle of water. The first thing I noticed was the color of the resulting beverage was a sort of a dirty yellowish, none too appetizing. This was the first hint that this wasn't going to be as good as I thought.

Unfortunately, this was possibly the worst thing I've ever had to drink. I could only drink one sip, it was so bad. The flavor was overwhelmingly sweet and artificial tasting, and I wasn't even sure I could pinpoint the taste of either the blueberry or the white tea at all. Then again, I was trying to get the taste out of my mouth as quickly as I could! I poured the rest of the water down the drain, threw away the box, and poured myself a glass of regular water to clear the taste.


This is not worth it even with just 5 calories. While I realize that this product may appeal to some tastes, I warn you to try it with caution!
