UNBELIEVABLE...NO MORE DREADING THE THOUGHT OF HAVING TO RUN TO THE BATHROOM OR BEING IN THE CAR AND WONDERING HOW FAR IS THE NEAREST BATHROOM. ROAD TRIPS ARE NOW ENJOYABLE AND NOT A PUNISHMENT. I MIX 1 PK WITH 4 oz OF APPLE JUICE IN A SHAKER BOTTLE SHAKE UNTIL FROTHY,,I TRULY CAN'T BELIEVE IT//FREE AT LAST
