Comments: I received a sample stick pack of the Strawberry flavored Breeze Singles at an industry trade show. As per instructions, I added it to a 16 oz glass of water. It took a little extra effort to get it completely dissolved: several small clumps of powder formed on the surface that had to be broken up. But eventually, most of it went in (there were some crystals that stubbornly refused to dissolve).
The resulting beverage was clear, with a pale pink tint, and an appropriately sweet-tart flavor. It tasted much like your typical strawberry-flavored food product…the flavor was reminiscent of strawberry Jello (not my favorite flavor, but not bad either). Stevia normally has a sort of anise-like aftertaste, but this was not particularly noticeable, perhaps due to the purity of the extract (Stevita stevia extract consists of 95% steviosides).
Basically, Breeze is a “Crystal Light” clone – with the exception that it’s naturally-sweetened with stevia. People wanting to avoid artificial sweeteners would like this product. The online price isn’t bad, either: a 15-serving stick pack sells for as low as $6.49 US.
