Flavored Water?


I know flavored water is all the rage right now, and I don't begrudge people who drink it. But I don't understand why they do. I HATE flavored water. It tastes like someone just poured water into an unclean cup -- one that had a very small remnant of juice on the bottom: not enough flavor to matter, but just enough to feel like something is awry with that perfect substance made of 2 hydrogens and an oxygen. Afterall, 3 is the magic number. Does it really need another chemical?

My two favorite drinks in all the land are water and 2% milk. What are yours? If you say flavored water . . . :)

Thing I'm thankful for: good people and relaxing Fridays.

Sara, we are so on the same page there. I will drink water over almost anything. I don't order water at restaurants because I'm cheap but because I love it!! I have my water bottle with me all the time and I can tell a huge difference in my well-being and mood between times when I drink a lot of water and when I have had hardly any. I highly recommend it to anyone who's tired a lot. It just may help!

And flavored water is awful, dirty water. I totally agree!

I like chocolate milk. I like water but there are times when it just doesn't sound very good. Like, when I first wake up. Not very tasty.

What if they had meat flavored water, like "it's water with a hint of turkey." That's almost as silly. Apart from water, I love Guava juice, cranberry juice, or anything Looza.

Water with a slice of lemon. This is different than flavored water because it is a fresh lemon not an artificial flavor. I HATE ARTIFICIAL FLAVORING IN WATER! NOTHING beats water! If I go for a soda, it is Pibb or Root Beer.

WELLLLL, I suppose this was brought on by my bringing some raspberry flavored water home yesterday. I happen to like the flavored water, because I am trying to cut back on beverages with sugar because of my diabetes! So flavored water is great, sans sodium and sugar. It makes me feel I am having a special surprise drink. Not at all like colored kool aid we used to have as kids. But, I do like plain H2O when really thirsty. Pibb is my sinful drink! on occasion

I love water. Can't get enough of it. I'm sort of a camel. I have tried the flavored water and it actually wasn't that bad. The one I had tasted like juice-only no color. So my other drink I like is diet coke. But not so much out of a can. It tastes better out of the tap. I don't know why, it just does.

I don't mind flavored water. I don't think I would buy it, but I thought it tasted pretty good when I drank it. Coke in a glass bottle. Or A&W Root Beer in a frosty mug.

I love water, milk, and juice. Real juice. You know, the stuff that says %100 juice on the outside. I despise fake juice, and flavored water falls in the same category. Especially that stuff with splenda in it. Oh, frighteningly bad!
