These drinks are Not 0 cals. They are 10-5 cal per bottle.

The manufacture has set it up so the servings are 5 or less cals so They can advertise 0 cals.

While one of these tasty drinks isn't going to set you off course. But if you were looking for a great mixer or drink 5 of them in a day it will add up.

Just thought I would point this out.

I have found them at Publix only so far.

Thanks for the advice. Personally, I don't like the way they taste, so I stay away from them, but it's great information to have nonetheless!

A lot of foods can do this, not just with calories. If the carb grams PER SERVING are less than 1, they can say zero on the label.

Costco carries them by the case. I haven't purchased them so have no judgement on them. However, I believe this is true of many things we buy. Diet Coke has a calorie count on the label if you purchase it outside the US. I actually remember it being advertised as a "1 calorie drink" when it very first came out back in the 80s and I think that was for 8 ounces. You look now and it has 0 calories.
