Crystal Light is a low-calorie powdered beverage mix that offers naturally and artificially sweetened beverage options in multiple flavors. Originally marketed in 1982 with Linda Evans as its spokesperson, the company later had celebrities Raquel Welch and Priscilla Presley as spokeswomen. The catch phrase for each of the ads was, "I believe in Crystal Light, because I believe in me."



First packaged in multi-serve canisters, Crystal Light launched single-serve "On The Go" packets in 2004. In 2009, Crystal Light redesigned its multi-serve packaging. On a finished case goods basis, the new design uses 250 tons less packaging than the original. [1] In 2010, Crystal Light launched Pure Fitness, a naturally-sweetened low-calorie fitness drink mix.[2] It is sweetened with sugar and Truvia, a sweetener derived from the stevia plant. It is currently sold in "On The Go" packets.[3] In 2011, Crystal Light Pure Fitness was renamed Crystal Light Pure, and three additional flavors were introduced.[4]

Kraft Foods, the parent company of Crystal Light, offers a product locator on its website to help locate flavors in a desired location. Crystal Light is sold in the U.S. and Canada.

Women who drink Crystal Light drink 20 percent more water. This statistic is based on consumption of tap, bottled, flavored water and prepared powdered beverages from Kantar Worldpanel Beverage data.[5]
