It’s pretty much a guarantee that if a company makes something that is sugar free and carbohydrate free, it will sell regardless of the taste or price. Over the past two years sales of packet drinks like Kool-Aid have skyrocketed but there is still a huge outcry for similar products. The Singles To Go from Wyler’s isn’t a new concept. Crystal Light came up with the idea and others were soon to follow. The beauty of it is that you can carry the packets with you anywhere and add it to a sixteen ounce bottle of water when you want something crisp to drink but plain bottled water isn’t enough.
I received a case of these from a friend and was pretty excited about trying all the different flavors. Most of the flavors were great but I’ve never been a huge fan of the strawberry and kiwi combination. They mix easily in water and require only a little bit of shaking to get the powder to mix evenly. The Lemonade and Pink Lemonade were the best ones for quenching your thirst but the Iced Tea with Lemon was my favorite because of the crisp clean taste.
Currently the Singles To Go are available in the following flavors: Cool Raspberry, Iced Tea with Lemon, Kiwi Strawberry, Lemonade and Pink Lemonade. All of the flavors are available in the eight packet boxes and certain ones, such as the Iced Tea with Lemon come in a fourteen count box as well. These are really nice to carry with you if you are on a diet or are burned out on diet carbonated beverages.
These aren’t flat like Kool-Aid packets but rather small thin tube like containers; I like the fact that they are waterproof and extremely sturdy. I can toss them in my backpack or gym bag and not have to worry about them ripping open or leaking all over the place. These are also great to take to kids sport events; instead of having them chug down a twelve ounce can of soda, they can have something that is sugar free but packed with flavor. If you try these and they seem a bit too strong you can add a little extra water to it.
Now that I have tried all the flavors and determined which ones I like the most, I definitely plan on buying more of these. We eat out about three nights a week and several of the places we go to don’t have fresh brewed iced tea, only the sweetened ones so having a few of these packets with me will let me have a few more beverage choices.
The average selling price for a box of eight packets is roughly $1.99 but I found them locally for .99 cents a box Big Lots. They were not expired and were not damaged in any way; I called Wyler’s to see if they were discontinuing any of the flavors and I was told that they were not. Usually stores like Big Lots receives items that are being discontinued or are close to their expiration date; neither of which are the case with this product.
I have no doubt that I’ll be buying tons of these for the summer; overall the taste is great and it’s extremely refreshing. Why pay a dollar or more for a bottle of the premixed non-carbonated beverages when you can make them yourself for a fraction of the cost. Wyler’s is a proud sponsor of the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition and a portion of the proceeds from Singles To Go will be donated to the organization.
