  • In this case, I bought a container with the 2-quart packets, enough to make a total of 12 quarts of pink lemonade
  • On average, one container will cost about $3 and it can be found in most regular grocery or general goods stores
  • I opted for the pink lemonade flavor, since I like the sweetness of pink lemonade but did not want all the sugar that comes with typical pink lemonade drinks
  • It isn't a good substitute for fresh lemonade, but it is delicious nonetheless

      Crystal Light is a popular way to get a flavored drink without too many calories or too much sugar as a consequence. On average, a serving of a drink made with Crystal Light has about five calories, compared to the 100-200 that can be in the standard fruit drink or soda. It comes in a variety of flavors and is very simple to make - just mix the powder in with water and cool. The packets for Crystal Light come in various sizes, from single serving pouches for 20-oz water bottles to 2-quart packets for multiple servings. In this case, I bought a container with the 2-quart packets, enough to make a

      total of 12 quarts of pink lemonade.

      On average, one container will cost about $3 and it can be found in most regular grocery or general goods stores. I picked up my particular container at Target for about $2.50 on sale. I opted for the pink lemonade flavor, since I like the sweetness of pink lemonade but did not want all the sugar that comes with typical pink lemonade drinks.

      It took almost no effort to make the mix - I filled a 2-quart pitcher about halfway with cool water, opened a packet and dumped the powder in, then filled the pitcher the rest of the way. It only took a little stirring for it ...


      • to be properly mixed, then I put it in the refrigerator and waited. It only took about thirty minutes for the drink to be cool enough to taste.

        The initial flavor is wonderfully sweet and lemony. It tastes almost as good as a fresh-squeezed lemonade at first. However, it does absorb any taste that is already in the water. Since we have city water that can often carry a sulfuric taste, any time the water is even slightly off, the lemonade tastes horrible. The sweetness of the Crystal Light is not strong enough to counter bad water, so it is best mixed with bottled or filtered water. There isn’t much of

        an aftertaste to this particular drink mix - it mostly tastes like sweet water towards the end.

        Although this is a tasty drink, and an easy way to get good flavor without extra calories, it still can’t compare to a natural lemonade. Without the tart flavor or pulp, this doesn’t have as much in common with lemonade as I had hoped. Still, as an occasional treat, it is a good way to satisfy a sweet tooth without having to consume a lot of sugar.

        Overall, this is a nice, cheap way to get a good-tasting drink without worrying about empty calories. It isn’t a good substitute for fresh lemonade, but it is delicious nonetheless.
