Nestea Iced Tea with Lemon Drops
First, some background for me. I grew up with the powdery version of the Nestea iced tea with lemon mix as a normal drink option. I remember the stuff fondly. I even liked the flavor of the powder. So I might be more biased than most to adore this stuff :).
Still, with that said, I find this to be very tasty. It has that classic flavor which isn't chemically tangy. It simply tastes like nice iced tea.
There are 26 servings in the container, which is good for this category. For each 8oz of drink you make you get:
There are no vitamins either :).
So this is about as ideal as you can get. You begin with still water or bubbly water, add in a dash of this, and you get instant flavor without any calories or carbs.
You can take the container with you anywhere, so if you're off traveling, or on a cruise ship, or at an airport, as long as you have this in your purse or pocket you're all set. Get some water, add in the flavor, and you have something nice to drink.
The sweetening agent here is sucralose, and there is real black tea extract in this as well.
Are there any down-sides to this? I really can't think of any. Most water enhancers tend to have 5 calories / 1g sugar so you're not even getting that small amount. It doesn't have to be refrigerated. You can keep one in your car, one in your purse, one in your backpack, and always have it on hand if you happen to need it. Sure, there could be times you're fine drinking water. But there can also be times when you'd just prefer a bit of iced tea flavor to go with whatever you're eating, or just to savor on a hot day.
Well recommended, even for people who don't think of it as a childhood favorite :).
