how about a healthy drink

Haven’t had a soda pop in months. I’ve reduced my caffeine intake (usually at Starbucks) to half caf’. I drink enough water on a regular basis. And I don’t want to contribute any more to the $16B bottled water industry. Even with soaring gasoline prices, a gallon of bottled water costs 2 or 3 times more than gas!

What I’m looking for is a decently tasting carbonated drink, especially for around home. Iced tea is out, since that has some level of caffeine, even though I do get iced tea now and then. I don’t like that powered iced tea mix stuff at all. Smoothies from Jamba Juice or Smoothie King are great, but hurts my wallet. For a collectible but not drinkable soda, see Jones Soda’s PERSPIRATION flavor.

I sometimes order a glass of club soda. I’ll get a 2 liter of Fresca when I can find it. I would search around if it had a way to find a no-caffeine no-sugar beverage. Any other suggestions or ideas for a flavored healthy drink, without breaking the bank?

    I think you’re heading in the right direction. Tap water…. get one of those gadgets that adds carbonation. Mix a little powered sugarfree sweetener and voila!

    They got Diet Rite out there in Cal-ee-forni-a? It comes in some fruity flavors that are nice, and they say it’s like drinking water calorie-wise and all that. Well, it’s a suggestion …
