Crystal Light: Flavor over Fizz Challenge

Monday, July 11, 2011

So, I've stopped drinking soda regularly for awhile now. But I do admit, I drink it on occasions. Especially that it's hot out now, it's pretty hard to resist a cold glass of Coke. Well, I've received some Crystal Light drink packets & I'm taking part of their Flavor over Fizz challenge by replacing my sodas with Crystal Light. This wasn't my first time having Crystal Light -- I've actually preferred it among the other drink mixes out there so I was glad to be sent some!

It's so easy to make by just stirring in water, and it's great for taking it on the go in a water bottle. They have many flavors including the green tea raspberry, iced tea peach, lemonade, and wild strawberry. Personally, I like having it in a glass while relaxing at home & blogging.

Another part of the challenge was optional, but I thought it was pretty fun to do. I just had to show you all how I "dress up" my drink. I was sent a few colorful straws, some colored string, and a bunch of their flavors.

I decided to use the green tea raspberry in a glass mixed with cold, refreshing water. Used a pink string & a pink straw to match the pink flowers on a branch (which I have at home on display). And it also tasted so good!

This sounds really lovely and refreshing. I will have to see if I can look out for it :)

I could never really get into Crystal light, but maybe I'll have to try the different flavors to see which one is best for me :)

I love this stuff but you can't by in Australia as fas as I know. I bought some when I was in New York and as you said, it's a great alternative to soda. I going to get some more when I back in Sep.

This looks pretty, even if I'm no fan of any other drinks rather than actual tea, water or coffee lol

I've been trying to stay away from not just soda, but all kinds of sweet drinks. But I must say, my boyfriend is OBSESSED with these Crystal Light drink packets. He drinks two or three per day. I've had a few sips of the different flavors he likes and they are pretty good. :)

I have completely fallen off the wagon when it comes to diet drinks--I tried to give them up but it's hot and so hard to resist, plus they're always giving them away free. Anyway, I haven't tried Crystal Light in years but you're making me curious, so thanks for the inspiration! Hoping you're staying cool!

i so love crystal light :)

My Republic of Fashion said...

It looks nice and refreshing! And if it's better for you than fizzy drinks, well, that's an added plus. Saying that, I love nothing more than an ice cold can of coca cola. :)SArahD

Good for you for going off coke! I was never brought up on it, but I would imagine that once you drink it regularly, it is super hard to stop! So yay for you!!!!
