True Lemon-all natural flavor in a packet (no sugar, no sugar fakes!!)

I love True Lemon, True Lime and True Orange. I keep packets in my purse for travel during the day. They are great to add to water to give it flavor. I mix a packet into my water bottle for the gym too.

Info from their website:

No, all of True Lemon® and True Lime™’s ingredients are 100% all-natural and do not contain any artificial sweeteners.
