Critics Cupboard: Mio Liquid Water Enhancer
Flavors: Berry Pomegranate, Fruit Punch, Mango Peach, Peach Tea, Strawberry Watermelon and Sweet Tea.
Jennifer Mastroianni: Drink more water! Well, guess what? I hate drinking water. Maybe because lots of times our tap water tastes like algae, rust or creek sludge.
Even when water is fresh and pure, I find it bland and boring, which is why I’m a big fan of sugar-free water enhancers, such as packets of Crystal Light and Wyler’s.
But rather than a purse full of flavor packets, how cool to carry one teeny container? That’s what calorie-free Mio Liquid Water Enhancer is, with 24-servings per each sleek and stylish 1.62-ounce bottle.
The bummer is this stuff is terrible. It’s synthetically super sweet with strange flavorings. For instance, Mango Peach tastes like chlorinated pool water. This stuff is so bad it makes my tap water taste good.
Dan Kane: Mango Peach and Berry Pomegranate taste a little bit like a Jell-O shot, minus the gelatin and minus the vodka. In short, worthless. They taste like too-sweet artificial sweetener, and now I have a lingering chemical taste in my mouth. Why would I pay 5 cents, let alone $3.48 per bottle, to relive this experience?
