Why is anything that contains artificial colors and sugar and flavors allowed to be called "water"?

All-sugar is the reason you're fat.

I happen to like it.

Also, I read that you are what you eat and my goal is to eventually become the Steviest person on the planet.

But it's made from corn! Corn is a plant and plants can't be bad for you. Checkmate, nutritionists!

i hate HFCS. seriously. just. use. sucrose. I drink Gatorade, not powerade, because it's spiked just a little bit with real, sucrose, sugar.

Is it the new new Coke??

I look at the contents of items before I buy them. Not that hard really. It helps to have an awesome wife that cooks really yummy and healthy foods. Sans the deserts.


/plus I hate the film HFCS leaves in my mouth

I make it a point to buy peanut butter and bread that do not contain high fructose corn syrup. Packaged pancakes, too. And jelly, most of the time.

I don't need your poison, HFCS manufacturers!

I find it hysterical that a brand called "Vitamin Water" has nearly the same amount of sugar per serving that a regular Coke does.

Right?  Thirty-two grams, 100-120 calories.  Here's one weird old tip: Toss some cucumber/orange/lemon slices in a glass/bottle of water.  Calories: zero.  Sugar:  zero grams.

C'mon, humanity.  We're capable of nuclear fission and escape velocity.  Get a grip.

I've bought and tossed brands of Stevia that tasted like crap.   literally $10 tossed in the wastebasket because it was useless.

Yet KAL 'Pure Stevia Extract" has been consistently good.  Is it flavorless outside of sweetness?  No.  And neither is sucrose.  But I don't find  that additional flavor poor.  First, it's no where near prominent.  I'd say it's more tea like.  Not a problem for drink flavoring.

/I'm not sure why manufacturers seem to insist on mixing stevia with the sugar alcohol like erythol.  For instance I find Truvia less pleasant than KAL, but not as awful as that stuff I tossed.
