    You're allowed 20% theoretically, so sure, why not? It's certainly no more harmful than sugary drinks.

    I admit to a weakness with an occasional Crystal Light myself.

    I've seen that stuff at 7-11 before, it looks pretty intense for water flavor. I probably would be sick from the taste/additives, but I am curious about the taste and don't know anyone who has tried it-- if you drink it, it'd be interesting to hear your review.

    I don't know about the regular flavored, not having tried them myself, but the caffeine-enhanced ones taste like regurgitated stomach acid.

    This stuff has more nasty chemicals in it than should be allowed by the FDA! Read the comments at the end of this review to get an idea how bad it is! Foodette Reviews: MiO Liquid Water Enhancer
