I guess you didn't see that the first item is 7-1/2 cups sugar? Sounds good to me

unsweetened means no sweetner

So, I would suppose they would not use the recipe. It doesn't stop anyone else that might be fine with those products from enjoying a good idea.

A lot of people cannot use Crystal Light and similar products because the aspertame causes bad headaches.

Re: Lemon Ice Tea

Boil 9 reg. teabags in a qt. of water. Strain and pour into a 1 gal. pitcher. Add 1 1/2 cups of sugar and 1/2 tub of Crystal Lite Pink Lemonade mix. Add enough cold water to fill the pitcher and stir. This recipe is easy and a lot cheaper to make. When serving, pour over ice cubes in your glass. Sometimes I add some chopped fresh ginger to the boiling water.
