Those look good.  Right up my alley.
 
Today at Walmart, I picked up a few of their clear, flavored, sparkling water drinks.  The flavor I got was the pomegranate-blueberry-acai.  They used to have a honeydew-flavored one that was great, but it seems to have been discontinued.  Each bottle's about a quart and costs 68 cents.

If it's got zero calories that means it's got artificial sweetener in it.

No thanks!!!

Wink...sure, ol'Mule...you are correct. Here's one review.

I'm no chemist and have not searched out the 3 listed additives, yet. I just like the stuff...
 
Excerpt from above link:
 
1) Sucralose. I'm honestly not a fan of anything but sugar because certain substitutes affect my stomach in a way that doesn't feel too hot. That might not be the case for you so I can't completely X the product because of it.

2) Maltodextrin. It's kinda like a corn syrup, defined across the Internet as a "caloric sweetener."

3) Mannitol. A sugar alcohol, so yet another sweetener.

I think Donathan might've been more into one o' those "Eee-lec-trical bananas" Donovan sang about (though I think that, nowadays, they operate on batteries).

Yeah, I wanted to throw in another Donovan song lyric reference, but it was late & my brain was too tired.

All I could think of was "Hail Atlantis!!!!".

Hard to imagine he was as big as Dylan & The Beatles for awhile there.

Yeah, pretty big.  He had quite a few hits in a short amount of time.
 
Also, he duetted with Alice Cooper on the song Billion Dollar Babies.  And everyone thinks that Jeff Beck played on Hurdy Gurdy Man, but that appears to be only half true.  Beck did play on an early recording of the song, but not the version we hear.

I think he hung out with The Beatles a bit, too.

Probably into all that guru sh*t with them.

My Grandson introduced me to these when I told him he could pick out a bottle of "juice". I'm pretty sure it was the colors that attracted a 4 y/o.

He considers himself a major influence on the Beatles and invented psychedelic music.  Also, says he created the Celtic rock sound for Led Zeppelin and Tyrannosaurus Rex (before they were T. Rex).  I think he's full of himself.  Just a tad.
 
Tyrannosaurus Rex.  Thank God they abandoned this sound.

Bought a green tea sweetened with honeydew at a natural food store, not too long back.
There was *just enough* of a honeydew flavor to piss me off - a hint; not quite enough.
~~~
My favorite (and never have found the likes of it again) was a white tea, lightly flavored with peach and blueberry. MissyD & badol'self found it at a gas station in Rhode Island at about 4 A.M., one morning a few years ago...

I always thought he hung around Tiny Tim, or maybe should have. Never like him (or Tiny Tim, who *can* be unintentionally funny, now and then).

I've always thought there should be more honeydew- and cantaloupe-flavored beverages.  The Mex place I go to for burritos has fresh cantaloupe drink.  I always get the biggest size.  Sometimes, I get an extra one, "to go".

It sounds like Eric Cartman from South Park singing.

Yeah, I liked T. Rex, but I just couldn't handle that magical unicorn hippie sound that was 1960s Tyrannosaurus Rex.  I tried, but I just couldn't.

Yech! Not one of the best music music techniques of the 1960's. Reminds me of cats in heat!

BTW I've tasted Sparkling Ice it was good I think it was lemonade strawberry.

I see this is made by a company called Talking Rain.  About 8-10 years ago, Big Lots was carrying cans of Talking Rain, which was also flavored, sparkling water.  Good stuff.  But as it is with many products at Big Lots---here today, gone tomorrow.

Mannitol makes you go poo-poo -- explosive diarrhea to be specific.
Or so claims the warning I read on a box of sugar-free Cotlets several years ago. Shocked

^Pretty much any sugar alcohol can cause that. Personally, I've never had any issues with 'em, but my mother can't even lick something with a sugar alcohol, or she's in the bathroom all night making bean soup.
