This may be a really stupid question...but....is it bad to make a few packets of, say, Fruit Punch mixed with Crystal Lite, and keep it in the fridge chilled? How long can this keep for if so? I tried this and by the end of the day it tasted like rubbing alcohol. I'm not kidding....it seriously tasted like rubbing alcohol. I took a sip and threw out the entire container because I got a little nervous.

This was my first attempt at doing this and was wondering if it was 1)because I'm not supposed to make it ahead and keep it chilled 2)perhaps the punch and crystal lite raspberry ice are a deadly combination 3)the punch goes bad? (I bought it in the Fall and the box has not expired.).

Has anyone else experienced this?.

Anyone with any insite on this, please pass it along. I'm incredibly curious!!..

Very strange indeed. I've never had a problem. I think I would notify medifast...

I always mix my tropical punch Medifast with crystal light, and keep in the fridge. I mix in individual mugs, from the magic bullet. I leave them overnight and have for my first Medifast meal of the next day. I havent had a problem. Maybe b/c you mixed a whole pitcher? I always have a tight lid on stuff I leave in there overnight. What kind of cover did the pitcher have?.

Sorry you had a problem...maybe she is right, try talking to Medifast support. Good luck!..

I used a 2Q Rubbermaid with an airtight lid. It's so strange!! I'm mad that I wasted 4 packets of the stuff and it ended up downt the drain!!.

MF Customer Support, any ideas on this?..

The fruit punch tastes like rubbing alcohol to me no matter what it's mixed with, and for how long...

I pre-mix everything sometimes as much as 2 days in advance, then pour it back into water bottles for easy transport. I only use bottled water though I DON"T like our tap water it is very hard and to me, always has a funky taste. I was out of bottled one day and mixed one of my shakes with our tap water I couldn't even choke it down. Maybe bottled or filtered water would help...
