Flavor Name: Pink Grapefruit
I was pleasantly surprised when a co-worker let me taste a new flavored water drink he had discovered. I expected it to be overly sweet with and artificial flavor and aftertaste. Instead, it tasted like the real thing, wasn't too sweet, had a mild carbonation, had mostly natural ingredients and vitamins, and no calories or carbs. There is even some green tea extract! Since then I've tried the other flavors, but go back to the Pink Grapefruit as my favorite.

Too good to be true? Almost. Ice includes Sucralose, an artificial sweetener with questionable effects on the body. If they could use an natural sweetener like Stevia and keep it from making the drink bitter, then I'd be totally sold. Another factor that leads me to take away a star is that they use artificial colors. Not a deal breaker, but I'd rather they didn't. However, if you want a healthier (and even slightly nutritious) alternative to sweet sodas and something a bit more flavorful that water, Sparking Ice might be the drink for you.

Flavor Name: Orange MangoVerified Purchase
I found this product at a local store and then discovered Amazon's program to deliver to my home monthly. I signed up for home delivery and received a partial order. Now it's out of stock. I do hope this is only a temporary situation.

I tried other Ice flavors but none appeal to me like the orange mango. I've tried for years to find a replacement for Coca Cola in attempts to get off sugared drinks and been unsucessful until now. Ice has good carbination, appealing flavor and no sugar although it does have sucralose, an artifical sweetener, also known as Splenda. At this time, sucralose appears to be less problematic than high fructose corn syrup in soft drinks so I'm sticking with Ice.

This is my favorite of all the flavors. I love Pina Coladas and this tastes like a party drink.I wish it came in larger sizes to avoid having too many containers to discard.

Flavor Name: Lemonade
This is the absolute best lemonade I have ever had. Not too sweet or tart. The very lite carbonation adds just the right touch. As soon as this gets added to subscribe and save my standing order will be placed.

Flavor Name: Peach NectarineVerified Purchase
Price was good at $1.00 a bottle with free shipping. Thought flavor a little too sweet. Had enough sparkling Fizz. Other brands I like better.

Flavor Name: Orange MangoVerified Purchase
The Sparkling ICE line up are all extremely addicting, this one included. I love that they are all flavorful, calorie free (and carb free, gluten free, caffeine free), and carbonated. I used to have periodic cravings for one of my husband's cokes and always hated myself for giving in. I always thought it was the sugar I was craving until I tried these a year ago and realized that it's actually the carbonation I would crave. These are a guilt-free way of feeding those cravings.

The only thing I would note is that it is sweetened with Splenda. Splenda doesn't bother me at all but my husband can instantly tell the difference and ends up with a stomach ache any time he consumes it so unfortunately these can't help me to get him off his soda kick. So if you are also sensitive to Splenda, this isn't the product for you.

The Orange Mango flavor isn't one of my absolute favorites (that goes to Sparkling ICE Mountain Spring Water, Pomegranate Berry, 17-Ounce Bottles (Pack of 12) and TalkingRain Sparkling ICE Lemonade, 17-Ounce Bottles (Pack of 12)) but it is delicious all the same. I think it comes across as being more mangoish than orangish as well.

Flavor Name: Pink Grapefruit
Ok, so I'm always on the lookout for substitute drinks for soda. Because I just can't give up that fizziness, or the caffeine, or something. And while these Sparkling Ice drinks may not have caffeine, they definitely have the fizz that I so enjoy in my drinks. And the flavors aren't half bad either. In fact, this Pink Grapefruit one is one of the better ones.

I don't like grapefruit. So why did I buy a flavored drink with that then? Well there's something about this grapefruit taste that I like. It's not too sour, but not too sweet either. And considering I avoid the real fruit I can't say whether or not that it tastes like the real thing, I would think it's probably pretty close. But it's just good, easy to drink, and definitely refreshing. And there isn't an overabundance of flavors to get crazy with.

The ingredients; they actually aren't too bad. The list isn't very long, and the flavorings are natural. There's actual grapefruit in this bottle. There's even green tea extract. The problems come in the form of color. There is a type of red dye in this drink. And I'm not too impressed with that. I'd rather they have made it a healthier drink and it be some other color or clear. Honestly, I think I'd even pay more if they made it that way. But this low list of ingredients has some other positives that come with it too. There are 0 calories and 0 sugars in this drink. Which is incredible. And there's even some B vitamins thrown in too.

So while the dye makes it a tad less than healthy, this is still a pretty good soda substitute. It's healthy, still has the fizz, and tastes good. I definitely will keep buying it.

Check it out! None of the other bottled waters (that I know of) have this flavor. While it's not sweetened with Stevia (preferred, for sure), it's still a wonderful tasting NO CALORIE water sweetened with Sucralose. Got a little leeway? Try adding a shot of rum!

Flavor Name: Peach Lemonade
This is a joke right? Amazon offered this same drink yesterday for around $12 and today it's $28 for a case of 12????Although I'd like to try this new flavor, never would I pay Amazon this price, I'll just wait till one the local big box stores carry it. I can get the case of 18 for under $11 but Amazon is seeking $28-$31!!! Really.....smh

Flavor Name: Coconut Pineapple
I concur with ALL of the positive reviews. I had seen the product on sale for $1 in my local Publix and Kroger stores on several occasions, but did not purchase the product until my co-worker mentioned how great they tasted AND the fact that they are a zero calorie beverage. Most bottled water products have aspartame (which I hate). I LOVE every flavor EXCEPT the lemon lime (maybe it will "grow" on me later). My cousin was visiting my home and I offered her one in lieu of water. She is now hooked. :)
