    Thanks!

I don't seem to have a reaction to it. I have heard something about grape cool aid but haven't tried it yet. I was a great fan of non fat supreme milk until I realized I was having a reaction. I never suspected that it was the non fat supreme milk. I now try the 1% and do ok. You can always use some flavoring if it doesn't have citric acid or other problem ingredients. I seem to be ok with the low acid orange juice and I always use the prelief with it for a safe gauard. Hope this helps, you can pm me at [email protected]

    Okay, thank you, that is great, I think I will try that. I've just been drinking water and milk, which I can tolerate, and I want to try something else.

    I just looked in the ICN shop and they sell some mint tea there too

    ummm, I think my mom got some at Trader Joe's, I don't have a trader joe's around me though. I got mine at a discount store that I go to, lets go see what the name is, crap, I can't find the stuff that I was buying. The stuff my mom got me was from Trader Joe's though

    Oh that sucks!!! Try to see if you can find pure mint tea and that makes some yummy iced tea and of course you could use sugar instead of the splenda

    Yeah, it is now about 1 hour after I drank the Kool-Aid with Splenda, and it did in fact make me worse! I can't believe it! Now I can't even drink that!

    I tried the Kool-Aid recently and my bladder was on fire afterwards! No Kool-aid for me. I was really hoping though for something new to drink. The only thing I can tolerate is water and Gerber baby pear juice. I love it!

    I've had luck with A&W root beer. I am OK with small amounts of grape Kool-Aid. It still increases my frequency, though. My hubby is a Kool-Aid fan and we're trying to be a bit more health conscious. I made some with Splenda and it got all clumpy. He said it was gross. I didn't try any.

    1% milk is also a favorite aside from water. I've even been OK with 1% chocolate milk and instant hot chocolate. BUt, I have handle chocolate if I don't go crazy and eat a pound at a time. If I'm going riskier with some Sprite or caffeine-free Diet Coke, I usually take Prelief with it. I didn't add those things until my symptoms were more under control.

    I used to drink peppermint and speramint tea alot. I would actually use the Mr Coffee iced tea maker to make iced tea with it. It was really yummy. I had horrible frequency one night after drinking a whole glass of it really fast at dinner so I stopped but I think it was probably the splenda and not the tea itself. I've been able to drink a little bit of sprite myself but some might not be able to tolerate it. I've been in such a yucky flare lately though I've only been drinking water.

    started a topic KOOL AID with SPLENDA

    KOOL AID with SPLENDA

    Does anyone know if this is bothersome? I mean, Kool Aid with NO caffeine, and NO artificial sweeteners. It probably is, because the first ingredient is citric acid...does anyone know what I CAN drink, besides water? Thank you.
