MiO Water Enhancer Will Cure Your Distaste for Water

If you’re one of the many who solely drinks soda, juice, and coffee, then the constant preaching to drink more water likely falls on deaf ears. That, or you have a visceral reaction that involves a shudder and something along the lines of “eww, gross! water?!” Like it or not, we need water. Quite a bit of it, in fact. The average person should drink about 64 ounces of water each day. For those more active, a minimum should be half of your body weight (150 pound person = 75 ounces of water).

How much have you drank today?

Probably not enough. The biggest reason most people don’t drink water is flavor. We Americans love flavor, and water just isn’t doing it for us. But MiO can help. This new water flavor enhancer from Kraft is exactly what you’ve been missing, and could very well be the thing to help you transition away from all that other junk you’re drinking.

MiO comes in these cute little containers (not that that does anything for the flavor), and inside is a concentrated liquid that you can add to your water to give it a delicious burst of flavor. Six options are available: Strawberry Watermelon, Fruit Punch, Mango Peach, Berry Pomegranate, Peach Tea, and Sweet Tea. One squeeze, or half a teaspoon, will give your glass or bottle of water a tasty makeover that, most importantly, will make you want to drink it.

My favorite was the Fruit Punch, you could almost taste the nostalgia as it reminded me of my favorite sugary drink mix as a kid. This time, no red-stained mustache!

The best news? They taste great! A little drop in your water yields a really delicious drink. If you’re missing that fizzy burn from your soda, then add MiO to an ice-cold glass of sparkling water or club soda.

The entire nutrition label on MiO is filled with zeroes: zero calories, zero fat, zero sugar, and so forth. We also love that each is made using natural flavors.

MiO does contain artificial sweeteners: sucralose (i.e Splenda) and acesulfame potassium. However, there’s barely any in there, as the two ingredients are noted after the “Contains Less Than 2%” mark on the ingredients label. These two sweeteners are used together to counter the other’s aftertaste.

All in all, MiO should be just the thing to help turn all of you water haters into water lovers.

Major grocery retailers are carrying MiO, but if you can’t find it, their marketing team is very responsive on the MiO Facebook page.

While MiO provided sample product, this review is not sponsored or influenced in anyway and remains the author’s own opinion.

Just tried MIO for the 1st time. Peach tea sounded good but it has a terrible aftertaste. Gross.

I believe your info is wrong on the amount of water you're supposed to drink in a day. The study actually said 64 ounces of FLUIDS per day with at least 32 ounces of them water.

I have tried all flavors and love them. I want to know if there is any way to get coupons on these?

Why does MiO use artificial sweeteners? Why not use something like stevia?

I love MiO

I'll take MiO the way it is
Stevia, is being tested and is showing that it casues testicular cancer in men.

Amen Erik. And if folks are pounding this 5 times a day, they are receiving more than 2% right. Sadly many folks are giving this to their children exposing them to all those dyes as well. I'm a water hater, but mixing with organic and natural juices cured that.

I also wont use it because of the artificial sweeteners and the dyes...both poison...would be easy to make this in a healthy way with stevia & natural colors.

Less than 2% artificial sweeteners does NOT matter. Most do not know this due to politics but all artificial sweeteners are god awful for you. I cut out all artificial sweeteners from my diet 4 years ago. Even toothpaste that uses them. That means no gums or candies either. Guess who hasn't even had a cold in 4 years? ME. Google it. Artificial sweeteners even in small doses curb stomp ur immune system. STEVIA is the only zero calorie zero sugar substitute. The only reason why the big product brands barely use it is because of lobbyists and politicians who have stock in Sucralose aspartame etc. It's a crime. The FDA tried to keep Stevia out of the US for ten years. Why? It's from a plant. Sucralose(splenda) is spliced with a chlorine molecule. What would u rather ingest? Again - I haven't been sick in 4 years. Living proof.

I've tried the fruit punch thanks to a (full size) free sample I received. I really like it and am looking forward to trying other flavors. The best part, I think, is that you can add a little or a lot.
