To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I drink water every day at work throughout the day to avoid carbonated sodas or the tempting coffee frap at the cafeteria. For me, I need a flavor in the water to keep drinking all day long. Of course i don't want anything sugary b/c that defeats the purpose. Ive tried every liquid drop and flavor packet out there and so far the good old fashioned crystal lite tastes the best to me. I do not like super sweet flavors so I stick w/the classic lemonade. Crystal lite used to have margarita and mojito flavors which were fun. They must have stopped making them b/c I can't find them anywhere or online. I found this one while trying to find the crystal lite ones on amazon. I saw the amount when i checked out but you really get a LOT of boxes for the price and each box has several packets to mix w/the water. very convenient to grab and go. Easy to open and add to water. The flavor itself is actually very good. no odd after taste. Def not too sweet which is good. It could in fact use a tad bit more flavor actually which is why it got only 4 stars. am sure its hard to get that perfect balance. I tried just adding a bit less water to make it a bit more concentrated but that did not really help. it could use just a tad more "lime" taste. but still fun and i alternate between that and my lemonade each day so that i don't get too bored. **one thing to mention: the prior crystal lite margarita packets were def more flavorful and IF someone wanted, could in fact mix w/water, add a little tequila, maybe a little triple sec and have a margarita much lower in calories than most mixes. could blend w/ ice or serve on the rocks. Most pre made margarita mixes out there are not that great anyway as many are harsh on the stomach or sickly sweet. These packets, however, I don't see that happening as they are too mild in flavor for that to work. Granted, they do not advertise as a mix to add alcohol, this is meant just to flavor your water. Just pointing out that w/the crystal lite margarita ones, the added bonus was that you could in fact add some alcohol for a simple low calorie option**
We bought this in hopes of having an easily portable SUGARLESS margarita mixer for our cruise. Sadly it has no "pucker" to it whatsoever. We've tried adding lime, some very tart lemon, more lime - and can't get it to be sour like the bottled mixers at all (I prefer less pucker but hubby loves the pucker). BUT, each tube is enough for 2 water bottles - makes a yummy, smooth lime-aid - Just don't expect the bite of a margarita. Also this exact item was fulfilled by another seller (NOT Amazon) and he sent 2 boxes of 6 tubes each - total of 12 tubes. Amazon agreed it's supposed to be 72 tubes and corrected the situation - but be careful to ONLY purchase sold/fulfilled by Amazon.
Love the mix. I put a packet in the blender with a cup of ice and a half cup of Tequila and blend. Really good. Since I am the only one who drinks margaritas, it’s perfect for me. No waste or left over margaritas.
I was so excited to see this flavor of individual flavored water packets. I used to buy another brand of margarita flavor packets that I could no longer find, so I was so happy when I came across these. This has very, very little flavor. I tried doubling that number of packets used, and there was still very little flavor. It definitely doesn't give any type of margarita flavor. I truly wish I had purchased a smaller amount before shelling out the amount of money for 72 packets that I will never use.
First, I use Reverse Osmosis water that then passes through a mineral adder to make absolutely delicious water to start with. I HAVE been wowed recently by Tang Mango (NOT Mango/Orange). I figured with my success in the Tang Mango with other reviewers on this, that I would also get a big punch of flavor.
Not so much. I put one in a tall glass. Barely taste anything. My wife agrees. I put several squirts of lime juice. Still needs more. I sprinkle a little salt, add lemon juice and then a SECOND package to the single glass (with ice)....now I'm getting closer. Not bad, but having to do a lot to it in order to recognize the flavor. Not bad this time, but don't think it is worth ordering again, unless the flavor get's a noticebly bigger kick.
Haven't tried adding rum and using less water, but hope that will be nice.
These little sugar free singles are great! I drink a lot of water on a daily basis and having different flavors was my goal. I saw these and thought, "why not?" Well they do make a good base for a margarita, too - and SUGAR FREE! I don't need to up my sugar intake, and I like these as they are, but in a glass with ice and a shot of tequila it's the easiest margarita-on-the-rocks ever! They're good either way. :)
I gave it two stars because it was good enough for just a drink by itself with a very light flavor. But mixed for margaritas, it was not very good. When I used to use the old Crystal Light version, I would mix 1/3 of the normal water with the mix to get a strong flavor that doesn't get diluted by the tequila. Those margaritas were perfect. This one, no matter what level I mix it at, I just can't get the right flavor profile once the tequila is added. Oh well.
I love how handy these are. I use them on my sailing yacht. I also have the Daquiri mix. All I have to do is bring cold water and I have many flavors of powdered drinks. These taste sweet and I like the flavor. I is a bit more like a Lime Kiddy drink than the flavor I think of as a Margarita. I'd rather they be a it more tart than sweet but I can't complain. I still they they are good with salt and Tequila. Overall, I'm happy with them and I LOVE the convenience.
I bought these because I am on a keto diet and margaritas are typically full of sugar and carbs. I added 1 pouch to my glass of ice water and added a shot of tequila and BAM, a delicious margarita with only 1g of carbs. It's literally an instant margarita on the go, wherever you are . It tastes great without the tequila too.
