|I've tried all the flavors now, and my favorite is the Fruit Punch. Right now, I mostly use them to flavor homemade sno cones, made with my Hawaiian Shaved ice machine. Man, so good in a hot summer! I make a tiny cup of it on the strong side, so when it mixes in the shaved ice, it comes out right.|
I agree with the other reviewer about the clean taste, with no weird aftertastes. True. I also agree they are on the mild side.
HOWEVER, not unduly so, to me. But ya gotta understand, the longer you are off real sugar and chemicals, the more acute your taste buds become, and you don't even want or need overpowering flavorings to taste and enjoy stuff. It's really true, you just have to give it time.
I'm really enjoying these healthy alternatives to the chemical stuff. And if you want it stronger, just put in more, until your taste buds adjust and become more acute.
True story #1 about taste buds: I had an in-law who used to put hot sauce on EVERYTHING, claiming otherwise it was all blah!!
True story #2 about taste buds: we used to make sun tea by the gallon using 1/4 cup of honey. It tasted lovely to us. BUT a friend had some and exclaimed "you forgot the sweetener!" He insisted it was not sweet at all. Well duh... he also drank 2 Pepsi's every morning for breakfast; he just could not taste anything subtle.
Final verdict for Stur's Water Enhancers: yum!
