Kim, I have actually tried the Kool-Aid with Splenda. To me, it didn't taste any different than the Crystal light and I didn't like that either.
It did, however, work for the kids. They didn't notice a difference and they were alot less hyper.
I have been drinking nothing bu****er and it works for me.
I love it!
It doesn't have any calories either. BUT, I don't like the flavored water. I think it's nasty. I hope that you find something that works for you. Lots of luck, ~HUGS~ Stacie
