OK - You have to check out this new water from Aquafina (made by Pepsi/PepsiCo). This stuff is A-W-E-S-O-M-E!

There are 3 varieties available. Yeah, yeah - the pic shows 4, but I can only find 3 of the 4. Here's my free commercial for them on these...

  • Energizer (Orange / Lime Flavor). Sounds weird, huh? Well it tastes GOOD! I was kinda scared it would taste too much like lime. Nope! Zero calories in this one, but the Energizer part is from the caffeine. So, be warned - it's like drinking a cup of coffee, but better for you (my opinion) but supported by the fact that they threw in some B vitamins.
  • Protect (Berry Pomegranate). Now, to be fair. You put pomegranate in water and I'm a happy girl. So, I may not be the best judge on this one. Again, zippo calories. Running low on antioxidants? This one has E and C vitamins. How much? Not sure - probably on the website. (I'll let you guys go check that out if you want to.)
  • Satisfy (Peach Mango). This one I can't find! I want it, want it, want it! (Tantrum is officially over.) This one has TEN calories, but guess what? It's from FIBER!!! Rock-on!!! I have a hard time getting in enough fiber. This way I get fiber and water in one go. Let's be real people - you'd have to drink TEN of these to get to 100 calories, so I am just fine with the 10 calories. I'm on the hunt for this one.
If you decide to try this out, let me know what you think!!!

Hi Fluffy!!

Thought I would look to see if it's available in the UK and came across this

Now am not sure whether it's a good thing or not. We had a similar product a few years ago called Dasani. It bombed after the public felt the company was taking the mickey and selling tap water bottled as mineral! I do drink tap water as apposed to bottled as it is safe. Some 'natural' spring water has been found to have bad bacteria in it like salmonella.
But at the end of the day you need to drink what is good for you and if it is good then it shouldn;t matter where it comes from.

Hi Dawn! Thanks for the comment. This is purified drinking water. Water sucks here in TX out of the tap, so I drink bottled and drinking water is just fine with me. They state it on the bottle clearly to clarify any confusion about the water source. (Personally, I don't need a mountain spring, just some decent tasting water!) I just like the flavors and it isn't sicky sweet like a bunch of others. Sobe is coming out with one that uses that new sugar alternative. I have to try that one out as well. If you haven't guessed, I'm not a big fan of plain ol' water, so I need to have some options! Take care. Fluffy

We are very lucky that our water can be drunk straight from the much easier and saves your pennies. But I too like to have something in it, and I am a complete nut over a pink grapefruit squash. Although I try and limit my intake as I can drink loads of it - 3 ltrs a day +!!

Did Aquafina stop making the ALIVE line? I'm not a coffee drinker and had become hooked on the Energize flavor. But now I can't find it in the stores or in the hospital where I work and used to see it stocked. The expiration of the last few bottles I purchased was in January of this year, which leads me to believe that maybe Aquafina discontinued the line.
