  1. I’m hooked on the mango lime, but I’m still trying to find out if there are any artifical sweetners in it at all. It says that it has 0 grams of sugar, but it has a sweetness to it. So good!

  2. I LOVE the mango lime!!! will try the raspberry lemon later–too much sugar in the straweberry peach… YUM>… new favorite drink!!!

  3. I love these fruit fizz drinks. Please dont stop making them. I’m trying to cut down calories and this is a great way to do that

  4. Artificial sweetener made my tongue go numb. I thought it would just be seltzer flavored with actual fruit. Wrong. I am allergic to most artificial sweeteners. šŸ™ Really thought it would be amazing, but not for me.

    1. Shortly after I relocated across the state, I ran into some friends from college in a gaming store. One of them had like a 40oz drink, and she dropped it. Shortly after one of the store clerks came over to help clean it up, he bolted for the bathroom. The other clerk asked if it was diet. It was, and it turns out he was also allergic to the artificial sweetener used in Diet Coke…and he’d just gotten it all over his hands.

  5. I love them! I was hooked on the peach strawberry, but the 11 grams of sugar are too much for me. Today I tried the raspberry lemon and loved it! It only has 1 gram of sugar and 5 calories for a medium. It’s not too sweet which I like.

  6. I can’t seem to find out what kind of sweetener is used in them. Some sites say that Sonic’s syrups contain sucralose, but the fizz seems to taste like it’s aspartame to me. I doubt I’ll drink it anymore since they don’t seem too anxious to state what the sweetener actually is.

  7. I absolutely love the strawberry peach fruit fizz. Iā€™m hooked on it. As a diabetic, I feel pretty good about drinking them. Thank you.

  8. Tried the Strawberry-Peach this morning, not expecting it to be so sweet. It was so sweet that I called them to ask how they sweeten it. They use sugar-sweetened strawberries and Splenda-sweetened peaches. Too many carbs and sugar for me. I will try one of the others next time. They supposedly don’t have many carbs and little to no sugar. I don’t do Splenda because of health reasons, so I’m hoping they don’t use it in the mango-lime and raspberry-lemon. (I may ask for unsweetened and add my own stevia. We’ll see how it goes.)
