Celebrate Summer with New Crystal Light Mocktails
The other day, I received a sample of Crystal Light Mocktails Mojito flavored drink mix for tasting from Kraft Foods. According to them, it’s new and limited edition. Also, they said, “Crystal Light Mocktails are a low-calorie drink mix available for a limited time in Margarita, Mojito and Appletini flavors. With just 5 calories per serving, they offer all the flavor of your favorite summertime beverage, without the compromise on calories. New Mocktails easily mix up the perfect pitcher without the hassle of muddling limes, blending ice or using a cocktail strainer. Just add water, mix it up and toast to summertime!” In order for me to experience this Mocktail, I had to get a cup and an ice pitcher from Target.
Up on tearing off the corner of a pocket, there’s a strong refreshing mint aroma coming out from the pocket with subtle lightly sweet scent and it reminds me the smell of Colgate cavity protection fluoride toothpaste that I use every day. Since packets contain powder, the color was pure white and the texture seemed close to white flour that you used to make buns. After the powder dissolved with 8 cups of cold water in an ice pitcher, the aroma still stays the same and I was surprised by it. However, the color turned to a light baby blue and the texture was cloudy. It looked like soap water with out the bubbles. As for the taste, the first sip was all lightly sweet and sour. After couple more sips, you could sense the mint and lime kind of flavors with subtle tart taste at the end after you swallow it down. Both sweet and sour tastes were balanced quite well. As you drink more, you started to feel dryness in your mouth, but some how the taste of this drink makes you want to keep on drinking it. Also, you couldn’t tell if this drink was made from dissolving powder which it’s a good thing compares to other powder drinks. The dryness lingers around a bit in your mouth for the aftertaste.

Overall, the taste wasn’t that bad and it would be better if they actually put some more natural flavors in it. Some how the ingredients make me wonder what it will do to my health, but I will still try their other two new flavors. Thanks for sending the sample, Kraft Food!
