I've recently become obsessed with this water called MetroMint. It's water purified by reverse osmosis and infused with mint oil and other flavors (like lemon, orange, and berries). The water contains no sweeteners, no preservatives, and no calories.
I think this water is AMAZING! I was looking for something to help me with cravings for soda, juices, even beer....so when I get those cravings I reach for one of these and ahhhhhhhhhh it's so refreshing and relaxing at the same time 8-)
However, I have read tons of reviews from people who HATE this stuff! They say it "tastes like drinking toothpaste" and that "it burns on the way down". People are comparing it to mouthwash....and I honestly have no idea what they're talking about because to me, it's perfect!
What do you guys think?
Get a good filter for your kitchen tap, fill up a pitcher with water and add some mint sprigs, orange or lemon peelings, or a few frozen berries. Let steep a few hours. Drink. Take in stainless steel bottles or canning jars when traveling and skip the plastic. Save a pile.
I went through a Metromint phase in 2008 but my obsession wore off. Never got to try the chocolate flavor though; maybe someday.
It's great that there are no sweeteners. As for water quality, it's no better than Pepsi's Aquafina or Coke's Dasani - purified tap water. Better to drink mineral/spring water.
I tried the MetroMint once, and kind of liked it, but not enough to buy it again. The one that I'm totally stuck on is Dr. Ayala's ginger and lemonpeel water. I refer to it as "my special treat" and bring it with me to family gatherings so that I don't miss having soda.
I buy MetroMint every now and then. I think they did the flavoring very well, although I do wish they would branch out to some non-mint options. It's purified water, so that's good. By the way, purified tap water is fine. It's purified, so the water source is not important. Sure minerals are important, but the fact that MetroMint water does not have minerals from Springs in it does not make it a bad choice of fluid.
Another excellent water drink is from RW Knudsen believe it or not. Pure ingredients and no sweetener.
Blueberry is the best. Cucumber is horrible.
I add a pinch of Stevia and sometimes a couple tablespoons of heavy cream (cream soda).
I ADORE the spearmint and peppermint -- hate hate hate the cherry, berry, and chocolate -- and am lukewarm on the orange and lemon. I put a couple drops of liquid Splenda -- but I don't drink many cause they cost some much! (Did buy 30 once, when Kroger had them for a buck a bottle!!) My husband gags and says it tastes like perfume smells! My sister hates the taste. There's just no tellin'!
