Wegman's Nut Buffet
I've been trying to wean myself off high fructose corn syrup. It's been pretty difficult because there's a soda machine next door to our house and I've been buying bottled Lipton tea every morning for the past I-don't-know-how-many years. The main problem is that I don't like to drink other things. I don't like milk. Juice is okay once in awhile but is generally too syrupy and/or acidic for my taste, plus it doesn't really quench my thirst. I'm not a big fan of hot drinks. I like iced tea, but I've gotten so accustomed to the corn syrupy ones that regular brewed tea tends to taste bitter to me unless I load it up with sugar, which I also don't like. And water is too boring (even flavored water), so if that's all I have in the fridge I end up not drinking enough liquids, which of course isn't good for you.|
SO I discovered these drinks in what we call "the hippy section" of Wegman's...R.W. Knudsen Spritzers. They're light and refreshing, and they're made of nothing but sparkling water, juice concentrate, and natural flavors.
Mandarin Lime is my favorite, but so far grape, tangerine, and boysenberry are all really good (black cherry & cherry cola, not so good). They make light ones too, which I haven't tried yet.
Yay for yummy drinks that aren't horrible for you!
