Pros:Good taste, easy to transport and use.
The Bottom Line: Crystal Light On-The-Go Metabolism Plus Green Tea Peach Mango is a lightly flavored product that is easy to take with you.
My husband and I have enjoyed different varieties of Crystal Light drinks at home for quite a number of years, but now that our children are involved in quite a variety of activities we tend to purchase food items that we can take with us. Bottles of water are a definite staple, but now that individual flavoring packets are available, we have been taking them along as well.

One variety of instant drink mixes that we have enjoyed recently is the Crystal Light On-The-Go Metabolism Plus Green Tea Peach Mango. Originally, I purchased this flavor for my husband since he enjoys flavored teas, and since I generally only like my iced tea plain, I really had to be coaxed into trying it. My husband is now a little sorry that I tried it because I actually like it very much, and tend to drink more of it than he does.
I am not usually a big fan of flavored teas, or the tastes of peach or mango, but for some reason, the flavor combination in this product appeals to me. It has a light, fruity taste, but to me, it does not taste like tea, nor like any one fruit.
Each box of Crystal Light On-The-Go Metabolism Plus Green Tea Peach Mango contains fourteen small packets of drink mix. Take a sip out of 16.9 ounce bottle of water (to allow room for shaking), add the contents of one packet, cover the bottle, shake and enjoy. The very fine powder dissolves very quickly, but make sure you get it into the bottle, as it is very sticky if it gets on the outside of the bottle.
The front of the packaging states that green tea antioxidants & caffeine help boost metabolism, although in smaller print on the back states that you need to drink three 16.9 ounce bottles a day for a short term boost in metabolism. Each packet dissolved in a bottle of water is considered to be two servings, so half a bottle contains 25 mg of caffeine and 63 mg of Green Tea antioxidants. This product is sweetened with Aspartame so that it only has 5 calories per serving and, it contains no carbohydrates, sugars or protein.
I have not noticed that this drink has affected my metabolism in any way, even on days that I do drink three full bottles of it. On the other hand, the 10% of my daily Vitamins A, C and E that can be found in each serving is nice, in addition to drinking water that has a great flavor.
There are many different Crystal Light On The Go flavors available, and sometimes this flavor can be difficult to find on the store shelf. Each box contains fourteen individual flavor packets, which can be removed from the box and be taken along in a lunch box or backpack so that it is available anytime you have a bottle of water that you want to add some flavor to.
I was pleasantly surprised by the taste of Crystal Light On-The-Go Metabolism Plus Green Tea Peach Mango and I will continue to purchase it, especially to help keep myself hydrated during the hot summer months.
