I bought these thinking that they would be more like the water pour ins from other brands that I had been purchasing. I really wanted to add more protein into my diet. I don't eat a lot of meat because I have trouble just desiring to eat it and it gets old eating beans, nuts, and other sources of protein. I really thought I would like these water pour ins.

The real killer for me is just how thick this mix tastes and the weird aftertaste. It has this odd chalky taste to it and I can never really get it to fully dissolve no matter how much I shake the bottle. It does kind of resemble lemonade but it just isn't quite right. It's a little thick and the taste is just off. It's kind of like eating a very watered down shake to me.

For what these are, the calories, and the amount of protein you get, I can stomach them but I have to drink about half at one time and save the other half for later. They don't keep that great in the fridge. The particles kind of chunk up and it's hard to mix into a cold bottle of water. I've actually cracked out the blender before and blended one of these into ice water and made it into a shake. It turned out better than just drinking the water and it tastes so much better if you add a little fresh lemon juice.

Overall, the price and the amount of protein make these a good buy though and they're tolerable. Most shakes, mixes, and protein products aren't exactly the most delicious options.

I am not a huge fan of the Special K line, excluding some of their cereals and the strawberry protein drink. All of their other products range from mediocre to terrible. The special K2O Pink Lemonade Protein Water Mix is of the mediocre range. I would never buy this product at its typical price point, as it is outlandishly high but when there is a BOGO at my local store on these proton water mixes, I'll pick a few up. I wouldn't say they are delicious, but they do taste like pink lemonade a bit. They don't dissolve that good either, they are actually pretty terrible at dissolving so I would definitely recommend that you use a blender bottle with these. If you are looking to build muscle, I would definitely skip this product if I were you. But if you don't work out (intensely) frequently, then these would be good you. It's more for weight management then anything else, and dieting.

Special K20

Comments about Special K20 Pink Lemonade Protein Water Mix:

Where do I even begin. I love the Special K20 Pink Lemonade mix because it is a combination of some of my favorite things. When trying to pursue a healthy active lifestyle I have been trying to eat more healthy but I realized I also need to be drinking healthy things as well. I have always loved drinking lemonades but they are usually all filled with artificial sweeteners and sugars which turn straight into fat, and I don't mean the good kind. With the K20 protein powder it is so simple all I have to do is put a single packet in a bottle of water and shake until it dissolves. It is super convenient on the go and fortunately really authentically tastes like regular pink lemonade. Having this nice little bonus in my diet just adds to my motivation to keep on the right track with healthy living and eating and I love the results that I see overall as a whole. These are now a staple in my home.

A nice way to change things up without adding a lot of calories

By 

from Westchester, IL

Comments about Special K20 Pink Lemonade Protein Water Mix:

I drink about a gallon of water a day and I really enjoy the taste, but sometimes I like to change things up by adding Special K20 Pink Lemonade Protein. I add this mix to my water maybe once a week. The nutritional value of this product is okay. It has 5 grams of protein and fiber, which isn't a lot, but at 30 calories per a serving it's not too bad. This product really does taste like pink lemonade. It doesn't taste bitter at all and it doesn't leave an aftertaste. I did once use too much water and it did affect the taste of this powder greatly. When I added just another ounce to the water it made the pink lemonade almost tasteless. It left me with a faint bitter taste that wasn't enjoyable. I now find myself adding less water on the safe side to ensure the highest quality taste. I would definitely recommend Special K20 Pink Lemonade Protein to anyone looking to shake things up or don't enjoy the taste of water.

Not too bad

By

Comments about Special K20 Pink Lemonade Protein Water Mix:

I give this "Special K20 Pink lemonade Protein water mix" a 7. The reason for that is because it leaves a horrible aftertaste in my mouth that I just cannot seem to get rid of. There are some good things about these little packets that I really like. They are small enough to carry around in my purse, diaper bag, my car and even my pocket! They are also very convenient for on the go. If you don't mind the diet taste they have to them than this product is for you. Protein is very important for your diet, especially when trying to lose weight. This water mix is supposed to help you feel full for longer, so you eat less. After I drank this with my bottled water, I honestly didn't really feel "full". I would recommend this product just because it is a better alternative to the bottled drinks they sell to keep you hydrated. But if you do not like the drinks with a strong aftertaste, you probably wont like these K20 packets.

Refreshingly Tart But Hard To Blend

By 

from Hartford, CT

Comments about Special K20 Pink Lemonade Protein Water Mix:

I try to drink a lot of water but plain water can be quite boring, so I tend to flavor it with various powders and drops. Special K20 Pink Lemonade Protein Water Mix was a welcome find when I saw it at the store. It not only flavored my water but it gave me a bit of protein as well, which was just an extra bonus.

This is actually a rather good flavor. The pink lemonade can be drunk alone or along with a snack. It's rather neutral. It is on the more tart side, but that's to be expected since it is lemonade.

I've found that no matter how much I shake this in a water bottle it just never seems to mix in entirely and I always end up with a bit of residue at the bottom of the bottle. I've gotten used to it but it's still annoying.

I've found that this makes a nice, refreshing drink for hot days when blended with water and ice. It tastes a lot better that way and makes me feel like I'm almost cheating!

Overall, this is a good product but it is very tart which can be off putting for some, and it does not blend completely.

My Water's New Best Friend

By 

from wilkes barre, PA

Comments about Special K20 Pink Lemonade Protein Water Mix:

I came across Special K20 Pink Lemonade Protein Water Mix when I was looking for flavored water one day in the grocery store; at that time I had no idea the Special K made flavored water with protein. I try to drink a lot of water and cut the soda and sugar drinks out of my diet, however but I just hate the plain taste of water. I gave the Special K20 Pink Lemonade Protein mix packet a try and loved the flavor. It was not too sweet, but had a nice sweet/tart combination. I usually put a packet in either 8 ounces or 16 ounces of water depending how strong I want the flavor to be. I also found this to help me cut down on my afternoon snacking addiction; I think this may have been due to the fiber and the protein in the packet. I love that these come in single pouches. I have tried other protein powders in the past that came in huge containers, with these single pouches I can keep some in my purse and add it to water if I get hungry. Overall the Special K20 Pink Lemonade Protein Water Mix has helped me cut down on snacking and limit my soda addiction and I would recommend it.

It's a really good product.

Comments about Special K20 Pink Lemonade Protein Water Mix:

I really like this product. Kellogg's is known for making good breakfast products and good nutritional supplements. I used it awhile back not as a weight loss management product but as a drink to consume while working out at the gym or running outside, I really enjoyed it.
The nest thing about the K2O Pink Lemonade Protein mix is the flavor. It does not have that nasty flavor that a lot of protein shakes are known for. The flavor is just like pink lemonade, my favorite.
Price of this K2O Pink Lemonade from Kellogg's is worth it. I got it for the drug store price and honestly it was not a lot of money. It is a good investment in a product from a company that Is well trusted for food products and nutritional supplements.
The over all value of the product is that it is worth every penny.
This is one of few products and diet supplements that I have used and did not mess up my stomach and did not give me heart burn.
I absolutely recommend this product to everyone and would definitely say use it as intended and as described.

These are okay but they are kind of thick.

Comments about Special K20 Pink Lemonade Protein Water Mix:

I bought these thinking that they would be more like the water pour ins from other brands that I had been purchasing. I really wanted to add more protein into my diet. I don't eat a lot of meat because I have trouble just desiring to eat it and it gets old eating beans, nuts, and other sources of protein. I really thought I would like these water pour ins.

The real killer for me is just how thick this mix tastes and the weird aftertaste. It has this odd chalky taste to it and I can never really get it to fully dissolve no matter how much I shake the bottle. It does kind of resemble lemonade but it just isn't quite right.

Overall, the price and the amount of protein make these a good buy though and they're tolerable. Most shakes, mixes, and protein products aren't exactly the most delicious options.

Special K20 Pink Lemonade Protein Water Mix

By 

from Hermiston, OR

Comments about Special K20 Pink Lemonade Protein Water Mix:

There are a lot of ways on the market to flavor your bottled water and I think I have tried just about all of them. When I found the Special K20 Pink Lemonade Protein Water Mix, I was thrilled! I love how each serving comes in its own very easy to carry tube. I did find the tube a little hard to open, but for the average person who doesn't have hand issues, there shouldn't be a challenge. I use a 20 ounce water bottle instead of the recommended 16 ounce bottle. The flavor was just a little too strong when I used a 16 ounce water bottle. All of the product pours easily out of the tube and it is easy to direct the powder right into the bottle opening. The powder mixes quickly and easily with the water. I take this product with me when I am hiking or out for long walks and need a little extra protein to keep from developing muscle soreness beyond the usual expected amount of soreness. I don't find any after taste either when drinking this flavor. This product is also very cost effective for me.

It is actually pretty good!

By 

from Hendersonville, NC

Comments about Special K20 Pink Lemonade Protein Water Mix:

I was surprised to find a drink mix that included protein in it. It is nice to find a product that contains protein without having to drink a shake or eat a bar that contains so many calories. Protein without all the calories is key and this drink mix provides just that. I purchased it thinking that it most likely would not taste very good since it contains protein, but I was pleasantly surprised. The pink lemonade flavor wasnt bad at all and I enjoyed it. 't doesn't have the same taste as some of the other drink mixes like crystal light, but it wasn't bad at all. I recommend mixing it and then pouring it over ice because it makes it taste a little better in my opinion. There was a slight aftertaste, but that is to be expected with any kind of drink mix that is made with artificial sweetener. Because of the artificial sweetener, I limit how much of this drink mix I use, but the protein makes it worth giving it a try.

Very odd, but not bad.

Comments about Special K20 Pink Lemonade Protein Water Mix:

The Special K20 Pink Lemonade Protein Water Mix is a unique drink mix. At first I wanted to try it when I wanted to get more vitamins in for my daily routine. However, I found that these tasted very strongly like vitamins. The texture is awful. It is very pasty and thick and grainy. It put a bad taste in my mouth. It does have a decent flavor at first, but then the texture overwhelms you. Overall, I wouldn't recommend it for daily drinking. You're better off taking a vitamin.
