    Coworkers addicted to MIO.

    Must be the artificial sweeteners, but it seems like half my coworkers can't get enough of these poison drops. Is this true anywhere else?

    Oh, Mio is the new Crystal Light drink packets. Ahhhh. People need to sell dehydrated fruit powders to add to drinks so there can be a healthy alternative to this. As it is, I think people think the "healthy" alternative is the Emergan-C drinks. Sigh.

    LOL, they are called lemons and limes. You can get them 10 for $1 at the Hispanic grocers around me.
    People just like to buy junk.

    As someone who actually likes Crystal Light I have to wonder about taking something relatively simply packaged and putting it into an elaborate flip-top squeeze container just so that you can have a liquid instead of a powder. I suppose it is so it can be portioned to flavor any sized water container, but in my experience, it takes as much trial and error to flavor your water correctly with liquid as with powder. I use it (the powdered kind) for hiking to help me drink more water.

    People drink far more water than they need. Also, are their taste buds really that deluded that they can't even drink plain water when they actually need it? Mio is nasty as hell, anyway. I love sweets way more than the average guy, but there is definitely something off about the flavor of that crap and all its kin.

    I used to drink Mio at my last job. Tastes like medicine.

    The first and last time I tried Mio, it tasted like swimming pool water to me.
