Minute Maid Drops - Lemonade
This comes, like most of the water flavoring options, in a small, easy to carry plastic container with a snap-up lid. It's about the size of a small lemon. It has 1.9oz of liquid in it, but it can flavor 28 8-ounce glasses. I tend to have large 16-ounce glasses when I drink so I think of this in terms of lasting me one a day for two weeks.
A lot of these types of flavorings taste chemically to me, so I was quite pleased when this one tasted fresh and lemony. You'd figure that Minute Maid would know how to get this right. I like it a lot over soda water with ice, for a gentle bubble to it.
It has only 5 calories, 0g fat, 0mg sodium, 1g carb, and 0g protein. It doesn't have any vitamins of note. It is sweetened with both sucralose and stevia, along with the natural flavors of apple juice and lemon juice.
There's really no down-side to me. When you're out traveling, often you want to drink something other than plain water. Especially if you're eating a meal. This Minute Maid Drop can go with you easily in your purse or bag and always be available. You just ask for water or club soda at the restaurant, or you bring bottled water along with you if possible. One swish, the flavoring is added, and you've got a tasty drink.
Also, this doesn't have to be refrigerated. So you just carry it in your pocket or purse in whatever the weather is, hot or cold.
I definitely suggest bringing one of these along with you when you travel. Even if you can't carry water for security or other reasons, you can pretty much always get access to water at some point. As long as you have water, you can add the mix - even if you squirt it right into the bottle of water directly. And then you're set with lemonade!
