I am someone who drinks a LOT of bottled natural spring water. I would say that I drink about three to four bottles of 500 ml each day. But sometimes I get bored drinking plain water so I decided to try the Great Value low calorie drink mix. Several times, I have tried the Crystal Light drink mix and wanted to see if the Great Value was as good as Crystal light because it is cheaper.
The Great Value drink mix comes in packages that include 10 sticks. Just empty the contents of one stick into a 500 ml bottle of water, then shake well and enjoy.
Each stick has 10 calories, a bit more than the Crystal light drink mix. I believe it is 5 calories per stick. It is sweetened with aspartame and acesulfame-potassium.
So far, I have tried the Strawberry orange banana flavour and the raspberry flavour. It tasted good but less sweet than Crystal light. I guess it depends on how you like your beverages. My boyfriend likes the fact that it is less sweet, I, on the other hand, prefer the sweeter drinks.
The Great Value drink mix is sold at Walmart in Canada and is cheaper ($1, 97) than the Crystal Light drink mix ($2, 47). I think it is a good alternative to Crystal light and I will continue to buy this product from time to time.
