Off the top of my head, Honest Tea comes to mind.

They keep the sugar very low, so they come out to something like 30 calories. It's real good, brewed tea, but you probably have to be a real tea fan to enjoy them. People who are used to stuff like Sobe teas (or "liquid candy" as Honest tea calls them) might not like them so much.

Honest tea is absolutely out standing.

Snowslide, if you like tea, give us a try. We're 56 calories per bottle. Judging from our fan mail, we hit it right.

You can find us in your area at Whole Foods.

Oh yes! Inko's is great too! The White tea w/blueberry is a favorite of mine

Things like Inko and Vitamin water are half-calorie products but still taste great.

Honest Tea is in a class by itself, however, because it has less than 10 calories.

It depends on how low you want/need to go.

Well, I don't know if vitaminwater fits your definition of low low calorie, but it's a good drink. It still has 50 calories per serving, and a 20 ounce bottle has 2.5 servings.

Glaceau also makes frui****er, which seems to be kind of what you're looking for. Only problem is it doesn't taste like much. 20 calories per serving, 50 per bottle. Unfortunately, it just tastes like water with the tiniest amount of fruit flavouring to me.

During the summer months, sometimes I take a break from drinking as much soda pop.

I really dig making a nice big pitcher of sun tea.
I use 4 tea bags in a two quart pitcher. I use sweet and low and lots of ice. Strange but sweet and low does not taste so bad in ice cold served on the rocks sun tea.

If you're hoping to find a natural fruit juice with low low calories I think you'll be disappointed. Fruit juice by definition is basically liquid sugar and water from a fruit.

As far as I know, your best bet for a fruity low-cal drink without artifical sweetners is going to be some sort of flavored water.

(or maybe you could learn to like tea hehehe... There's far more than just generic tasting stuff like Lipton!)

You might want to try Grown Up Soda, low in sugar and made from real juices and extracts. About 90 - 95 calories per 12oz. serving is almost half the calories of a regular 12oz. soda. http://www.drinkgus.com/flavors.html

Honest Green Dragon Tea is one of the best drinks I have ever had.

Vitamin water is also very good. I think the "Energy" flavor is my favorite.
