If you’re diabetic or on a low-sugar diet (like South Beach), don’t buy this!!

For whatever reason, the sugar in this product isn’t mentioned in the advertising. If you check the ingredients, the 1st one listed is evaporated cane juice, which is sugar, although a natural form of it, and sugar (the regular kind) is also listed a few ingredients later. I was excited about buying this product because I believed it was a Truvia-only sweetened product (which i prefer to artificial sweeteners).
However, I definitely won’t be purchasing it because it contains sugar and Truvia. A 70 gram container (a whole box) contains 210 calories – all from sugar. To some people this may not seem like much, but to others who consume lots of drinks sweetened with Truvia or artificial sweeteners, it can be a problem not knowing about it.
Why the company decided to do this is beyond me – Truvia tastes fine on it’s own.

Here is the nutrition information for this product from their website:
crystal light – fitness drink mix – strawberry kiwi pure fitness on the go 0.31 oz
Ingredients: EVAPORATED CANE JUICE, CITRIC ACID, MALIC ACID, MALTODEXTRIN, CALCIUM LACTATE, SUGAR, CONTAINS LESS THAN 2% OF DRIED KIWI JUICE, NATURAL FLAVOR, REBIANA (TRUVIA BRAND SWEETENER), POTASSIUM CITRATE, MAGNESIUM OXIDE, SODIUM CITRATE, SALT, DRIED PURPLE CARROT EXTRACT AND DRIED HIBISCUS FLOWER EXTRACT (FOR COLOR).

Delicious flavor!

I didn’t know what to expect from this purchase as the “On the Go” packages are significantly larger than other flavors of Crystal Light. The product description on Amazon did not explain what type of sweetener, if any, is in the drink. It is sweetened with the new sugar substitute, Stevia, which perhaps is why the packages are so large. I will definitely purchase this item again.

Finally No Artificial Sweetener!!!

I have been on the look out for an “on the go” water flavor mix, and found this at my local Smith’s! There were only two other flavors, so I got the kiwi strawberry, as I don’t like grape and the lemon-lime was sold out.

There is no after taste, and I can actually use the whole packet without it tasting too sweet or funny. I’m glad a company finally came out with a mix that has actual SUGAR in it, not aspartame!

Great tasting product for the non-plain water drinker!!!!

I was amazingly surprised by the taste of this product. I will be purchasing again. There is absolutely no aftertaste whatsoever!!! The fact that there is no aspartame in this product is why I purchased it in the first place. Try this product and you won’t be disappointed.

Finally!!! A sports drink that doesn’t use corn syrup or artificial sweeteners!

Positives:
* Doesn’t use artificial sweeteners or corn syrup
* Affordable – this costs so much less than buying Gatorade or Powerade!
* Better for you! Lower in calories than the more popular sports drinks.
* Tastes good as far as I’m concerned. I like it better than the other sports drinks I’ve tried. Tastes like regular Crystal Light from what I remember.
* Doesn’t require you to purchase plastic bottle after plastic bottle of product, thus reducing your carbon footprint! BONUS!
* Not much packaging and it’s really convenient to carry in your purse if you’re a female.

Cons:
* Yes it does use sugar which kind of sucks, but I find that it does cut the Stevia which can have a bitter taste sometimes. And the amount of sugar used really isn’t that high.

Tips:
* Make sure to read the instructions as I didn’t and put the entire packet in a 16.9oz bottle my 1st time. It’s very strong when you do this. The packet’s intended for 2 servings.
* I’ve gotten used to drinking nothing but water over the years so you could play with this a bit and use more water than they recommend. I use a 33.8oz bottle per packet typically but intend on buying some BPA-free reusable bottles and just keeping them premade in the fridge for a moments notice.

Very Pleasant, Healthy

Finally a mainstream company using stevia. I hope other large companies take note of this success and create sodas etc with it.

At first I was put off by the sound of strawberry and kiwi together, but it’s actually a nice perfumy experience. You won’t be disappointed.

I don’t think the diabetic should have knocked down it’s score with 1 star. It never claimed to be entirely sugar free. Go look for a product using only stevia or buy unsweetened powders and add your own stevia (Stevita is the most reasonably priced)

Amazing

I’ve never been a fan of plain water and usually just drank Crystal Light peach tea. But when they came out with new drink mixes without the artificial sweetener I had to try it. Oh my goodness, it’s so good! It’s very thirst quenching and I like that it’s made with real sugar(but it doesn’t contain a bunch like other fruit drinks). Thanks to this stuff I’m drinking way more water than I used to.
FreedaAuburn, PA

Buy this so they make more!

Taste great! This is the best flavor, and you feel so good because you know you aren’t putting chemicals in your body.
Unfortunately, I haven’t seen this at some of the larger grocery chains yet, but until I do I’ll continue to buy bulk from Amazon.

No Aspertame

Finally someone comes out with a product that doesn’t contain aspertame. Thank you Kraft. It’s tasty too! The strawberry kiwi is the only one I’ve tried so far but I’m hooked. I hope they will come out with even more flavors as this is great stuff. You can really smell the strawberry and as others have said there is not bitterness or aftertaste. Thanks again Kraft, I’ll be buying this by the truckload.

Awesome and safe!

Awesome product, natural and no aftertaste. I am so glad that there is finally a good tasting drink made w/ natural sweetener. Aspartame is so bad for you, and the shoddy lab studies on it are amazingly lacking. Seriously, is anyone out there doing new testing on that crazy stuff?? if you read the history of how aspartame got approved by the FDA you will never drink/eat anything with it in the ingredients again! Anyhow, all of the Pure Fitness products are good tasting and made of natural stuff that is safe for diabetics and everyone else too. Thanks!

Low in Sugar, Carb, and Calories and NO artificial Sweeteners Woo Hoo!!

I am so impressed with this product, I just had to write a review.. First, I never drink any of these type of drinks because of the aftertaste and the usual artificial sugars, and waste of precious calories.. but this one is low sugar,carb and calories wow! I only drink water (no tea,coffee, soda etc..) so this is a nice treat to change things up! I will defiantly be buying this again they really hit a home run!!

I love this product!

My husband drinks 3 liters of some sort of sweet drink every day, so I am in love with this product because it’s less expensive and has less sugar than bottled or powdered Powerade or fruit juice.

The strawberry kiwi flavor is just as good as grape & lemon-lime, & as natural tasting as you could expect from a boxed, powdered product.

I wish it was even more healthy (more Rebiana, less cane juice) and to compensate for increased cost, that it would come in bulk.

When I first started purchasing this product, it was $3.79, and now it is as low as $1.99 on sale.

Best product on the shelves at the supermarket (Seattle, WA).

Great alternative to drinking deadly chemicals

I stopped drinking products with aspartame after reading up on their side effects, I also stay clear of Splenda as it was derived from a pesticide.

This flavor is rather tasty, it lacks the “slippery” sweetness the original Crystal Light comes with. The flavor is not over powering and mixed with cold water makes a great refreshing drink as well as offering an alternative to the high calorie soda’s or juices. For someone trying to improve their health and eating habits this drink mix is a must have.

Very tasty! I like it so far

I was very pleasantly surprised to see a Crystal Light product that wasn’t loaded with aspartame!

I hope they get on the stevia bandwagon (or even go back to saccharine since it has long since been proven
to be perfectly safe) and start making more flavors.

I love the drink mix packets anyway, and I’m always happy when there’s a really tasty flavor.
This one had my attention as soon as I opened it – it smells like cotton candy when in the powder form!
(It made me wish I had some!) I had to cut the packet open – the little corners don’t always tear
too well.

It dissolved fairly easily, and makes your water a shade of pink.
It tastes really good, even though I had room temp water, not cold water.
It is a little bit strong in the 16.9 oz bottle (since I took a drink out of it before
adding the powder), but nothing outrageous or overwhelming.

All in all, I’d buy it again.

Crystal Light – I hope you’ll start making more flavors in the Pure Fitness line.
I’d buy your products all the time if you didn’t have them stuffed with aspartame.

HURRAY FOR NO ASPARTAME !

Im happy I found this.. I have to say that aspartame in pop products, diet sodas, greatly damaged my health and my life. I switched to the bottled Stevia waters like Sobe and Vitamin Water Zero, but its a bit expensive on a budget. I can save money now on this.
TobiMarshfield Hills, MA

It’s………..okay

Certainly drinkable and a good choice when it comes to flavored water packets but it’s really bland for me, not as sweet as the other Pure flavors, tastes watered down and sour (When I put a whole packet into a 16.9oz water bottle)……..not much like Kiwi strawberry. And it might sound weird but I can TASTE the electrolytes, I only suspect that’s what I’m tasting because the taste reminded me of Gatorade right away. I didn’t know this had electrolytes when I bought it so I think if you’re low on options and need electrolytes this is a good choice. If you just like the Pure flavors I 100% recommend Tropical Blend, it’s the best I’ve tried so far (Out of Tropical Blend, Kiwi Strawberry and Mixed Berry).

Strawberry Kiwi Yumminess

I have been enjoying this great drink mix for a little over a year. I was drinking powdered drink mixes and adding Sucralose to make my sugar free drinks. I am not diabetic, but I live with a person that has diabetes, so we have very little sugar in our pantry. I mostly try to keep my calories to a minimum; but the artificial color and flavor in the drink mixes, and the questions we are all having about artificial sweeteners are making me uncomfortable with this type of beverage. When I was younger, I loved Snapple Strawberry Kiwi juice; this drink mix is very close to that without all the sugar calories. There is sugar in the mix, but not as much as all the other drink mixes. So how can you lose? It tastes great, low calorie due to low sugar content, (I don’t know if I would recommend it to a diabetic though), and it is great for working out as it replaces what gets lost by sweating. My only problem now is, the local stores are phasing it out, I am having a real hard time finding it locally. If they stopped making it, I would have to stop drinking beverage drink mixes and just drink water; I like water, but not all the time. If anyone knows the status of this product, as in if they are discontinuing it, please let me know. Hopefully it will continue to be available here on Amazon.
