Funny this thread came up. I just discovered these the other day at the grocery store


I got the apple kind and liked it! I'm a big fan of just plain water but occasionally I like to switch it up.

I have a large Brita water resovoir that I use to refill a thermos water bottle. I usually use mio energy to flavour it and add some caffeine for the morning.

Oh I also just got a Brita too. I love it. I bought a six pack of sports top Deer Parks and have just been refilling them for a month.

Can't beat the tap water in this part of Scotland. In the cities it's not recommended at all, but most anywhere else it's better than bottled water.

I remembered after I posted last night that before the actually cramps started I had like a general feeling of tightness in my legs and joints. I initially thought I had pulled something when I was running. Like I said though, I never would have connected the dots if I didn't randomly google the product. There are complaints on the net about all of them. I think I tried Mio had the same issues.

Here's a link from livestrong.

Tap water for me. Don't care for the flavors like Mio or Crystal Lite. Haven't tried the fusions, but I suspect if I wanted the fruit flavor I would just get a glass of juice instead.

Hah not sure, but I know the third world doesn't complain about the taste (or lack of taste?) of water. They're probably complaining about not having potable water readily available.

Exactly, there are people drinking from the same stream that they wash, take a bath, and go to the bathroom in, but we have people disgusted by the water we have.

I would venture a guess that a second world problem would be having a fresh water source (or treatment facilities if no fresh source available), but having inadequate infrastructure to supply the water.
