Crystal Light Peach Iced Tea

I LOVE the summer and I love hot temperatures. One of my favorite things to do is set up in a nice shady spot with a drink and a good book. That's exactly what was on my mind after putting in some long hours a few days week. I had a Crystal Light drink to review - Crystal Light Peach Iced Tea (thanks to my advertising network, Glam Media), and I was almost finished with the AMAZING book, Kindred by Octavia Butler.

This low calorie peach iced tea was just the thing for a hot summer day. The flavor is spot on - sweet, peachy and not too tart. One packet makes a tall glass, or 16.9 ounces, and I ended up using a few packets and making a pitcher for the afternoon. I haven't looked back Luckily, each 8 ounce serving of Crystal Light Peach Iced Tea (half of one packet), provides only 5 calories.

The sweeteners used are aspartame and acesulfame K, and it also contains a few artificial colors - Red 40 Lake, Red 40, Yellow 6 Lake, Yellow 5, Blue 1 Lake and Blue 1 - why so many Crystal Light?!

A box with 10 packs cost $2.19 at my local grocery store, but as I said before, I received samples for review. The Crystal Light Peach Iced Tea flavor was really delightful. I would buy this in the future, and although I do drink a lot of water thanks to working out more, I don't think I could live without having some flavored drinks a few times a week. Plus, if you're trying to currently kick the soda habit, check out the Crystal Light "Flavor over Fizz" Challenge Facebook page - prizes await!

And the book I was reading - Kindred - so good - reading about slavery is not easy for me since my not-too-distant ancestors were on the wrong end of the whip - but Octavia Butler managed to make an interesting and moving story - with a science fiction twist.
