Diet drink mix - new options

Powdered sugar-free drink mixes come in a limited set of flavors, and frankly if you don't want lemonade, pink lemonade, or iced tea, you're often out of luck.

Kool-Aid brand drink mixes come in a variety of flavors, but are usually mixed with sugar.

The solution? Splenda brand artificial sweetener is now available in little envelopes, about the same size and shape as the envelopes of unsweetened Kool-Aid mix. The Splenda envelopes are labeled for use with Kool-Aid, and contain an amount of Splenda equivalent to the amount of sugar required for the drink mix.

In other words, you can buy a very cheap envelope of Kool-Aid, and a very cheap envelope of Splenda, add water, and you've got a pitcher of sugar-free beverage in your choice of a variety more flavors than you might otherwise have available as diet drinks.
