|miamia||California Buyers Beware. They seem intent on charging California sales tax although this product is not taxable in California (Even the Board of Equalization says it is not taxable - it is a food).|

I use one packet of lemon or grapefruit to a glass of water with one packet of Splenda or a half packet of Stevia. Makes a great light lemonade/grapefruitade. Bought a smaller grapefruit one because of the rave reviews and was not disappointed, ordered a 500 count pack when it went on sale again.

In for a 500 ct True Lemon box for $19.44 shipped. Just paid $2.50 for a 10 ct box at WM....this deal's a no-brainer! Tasted great with water!
Also picked up some Stevia liquid to make some lemonade.
TY OP ~ REPS!

|hoogax||Any feedback between the True Lemon and the True Lemonade? We got the True Lemonade a month or so ago and it is awesome, but I haven't tried the Lemon one. I see the Lemonade is 5 calories vs the Lemon is 0 calories, but beyond that I'm not sure what the difference is or how they compare.|

|LiquidRetro||I should try this, the decision is really lemon or lime. I like lime in water but lemon seems to be more versatile for cooking?|

Seems that while they do not use 'chemicals' as in chemicals made from mineral oil, this is not just taking a lemon, pressing it out and crystalizing it.
Quote from their FAQs at http://www.truelemon.c
"What is True Lemon made from?
True Lemon's ingredients are the same as found in a lemon: Citric Acid, Lemon Juice, Lemon Oil and Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C). To view the ingredients of all True products, click here (http://www.truelemon.com/cooking5.cfm)."
Do True products have corn in them?
The citric acid is from made from corn."

One word (or many) of caution: mix this stuff up thoroughly and let it sit for a while before drinking. Generally speaking, the longer it sits the better the packets dissolve, and the more flavor you're going to get out of it. And give it a stir after it's been sitting, because it tends to settle at the bottom of the glass. I feel like a lot of the negative reviews are because people try to instant-mix this stuff on the go, and get an acidy lemon-peel flavor that's not too attractive. Other than that, you're probably golden. Just understand that this isn't going to taste EXACTLY like lemon or lime, but it is pretty close.

|frogs123||For any avocado lovers out there, there is nothing I have found better for preserving the unused half (+ pit) in the fridge for later than the True Lime 2.85oz Shaker "crystallized lime". I've tried real limes, lime juice, lemon juice and the avocado would always still turn brown, even with a tight layer of plastic wrap pressed tight to the avocado flesh. Yet a thick sprinkled layer of the crystallized lime preserves it clear and un-oxidized for days (still need the plastic wrap of course). It must have something to do with the fact that the powder is dehydrated and exposure to the moisture in the avocado rehydrates it to the point it forms a perfect protective barrier. I did not notice any overpowering lime flavor either when I got around to eating it. Highly recommended!|
