How Do You Feel About Flavored Water?
Well in case you were wondering, here’s what I think:
There’s a flavored water revolution that has been taking our grocery stores by storm, and in the early stages, I was no such supporter. Call me a bandwagon fan or a closed-minded individual, but the thought of selling a sugared down drink as “flavored water” really annoyed me, quite frankly, at first.
But for some reason, flavored water has become sort of my savior lately. Every morning I wake up with a dry mouth and crave, ache rather, for something cold and refreshing. A sip of water would certainly do the trick but ever since we bought our new refrigerator (with the water dispenser in the front), I’ve thought our water tastes funny. No offense to our refrigerator but the water it dispenses is lukewarm and just plain bad. I could add ice but I still don’t like it, and it certainly doesn’t suit my morning criteria of cold and refreshing.
Enter: a free sample of O blueberry flavored water. I was handed a couple bottles by a grocery store giving them away and decided to give them a try and refrigerate them. I tried one on the spot and it wasn’t bad. The next morning, dry mouth and all, I tested its abilities to quench my thirst.
And it was that moment that changed my opinion about flavored water. But I have a caveat: it has to be true slightly flavored water. I’m picky about my flavored water. It can’t have sugar. And it most definitely cannot be colored.
How do you feel? Would you or do you drink flavored water?
