Re: Water Enhancers

^ I love plain water myself. I sort of think it has a flavor, but a good one! And, when you're hot and thirsty, it tastes better than anything else!

Yeah, and I've definitely had water that tastes nasty or exceptionally good, however, I always feel like that's the flavor of something in the water (minerals, salts, whatever).

Re: Water Enhancers

^ That's definitely true. I used to live out in Colorado in a town that had very low ranking water taste (apparently there was a survey). Never understood that because I quite like it! Apparently, there's an acquired taste for some water!

By and large, I find that the tap water in most places is just fine. But, there are exceptions.

Re: Water Enhancers

I use the Dasani drops.

I cut out all (non-booze) liquid calories in December and have dropped 20 pounds. I'm back at my college weight, so no complaints from me here.

I'll still drink a couple of glasses of tap water during the day, but some variety with my meals is great.

Re: Water Enhancers

Why not just drink cold water? In Norway they sell water with taste added. The problem with some of these is that there is sweetening crap/sugar in it. You might not taste it all that well, but it's there. And sugar, like salt, makes you thirsty and dehydrates you. I'm sure they make them without sugar too. Personally I prefer drinking water as it is, with as little weirdness in it as possible. Not sure why everyone insists on only drinking/eating what is bad for them..

Make no mistake, you are adding chemicals to the water.
On the other hand, someone must mention that water is a chemical, too.

Re: Water Enhancers

Dasani Drops are even better than mio, more natural tasting but no calories.

Re: Water Enhancers

So this is basically just Squash concentrate, but sold in little bottles?

Doesn't seem like a particularly new idea to me, we have a huge section in every supermarket where you can buy them in BIG bottles.

It's handy on the go, and easier mixing than Crystal Light and such. I'm drinking some right now actually.

That may be, but it doesn't change the fact that he's adding chemicals to it.

Re: Water Enhancers

They've always been very popular in Australia where they are referred to a cordials.

However aren't as concentrated as say MIO (you'd by them in a 2litre bottle) and they do tend to be fairly sugary. And the red (raspberry has the reputation for making kids hyper).

It's definitely one thing I miss now that I'm living in Canada. Mio has the taste from the artificial sweetener and the powders just aren't the same.

Planning on bringing some back on my next trip home.
