Default What's your favorite bottled water and why?

I like Dasani. It just tastes the best to me. It has no particular flavor at all, like I remember water tasting as a child. I know Dasani had a bromine/bromate scare a while back, but that was only in the UK.

For some reason, Pure Life tastes like chemicals lately. And more frou-frou waters like Voss, Fred and Evian just taste like spit to me.

I like all bottled water. Started drinking it when we moved overseas due to water quality issues and I haven't looked back lol.

Actually, I can say I am not a fan of HEB brand water because it tastes metallic. And I like Voss because water always tastes better in a glass.

I like Aquafina. It's one of only a few brands I can stand to drink at room temp which is how I take my water quite often. Especially with a meal. I only have my water cold when the weather is hot.

If I'm thirsty, I'll drink any kind of bottled water. I don't believe it's different from tap water.

However, in France there's a bottled water that allegedly has extra hydrogen in it (is that possible?) that tasted great. I drank bottles of it daily.

Also, some of my neighbors who live further East have very sulphurous water and I won't drink it. It smells.

I don't know if this counts but at work we get Crystal Rock and I really like it. And I do not care for water.

Gerolsteiner. I like the taste. A bottle has about 1/4 of one's daily calcium needs, and it gives fantastically impressive burps.

My siblings live in west central OH. The water smells like rotten eggs. Everyone has hard core filters.

I like Dasani, too. I don't know why, but it definitely tastes better than other bottled water!

I drink our very fine NYC tap water, but if I find myself buying bottled, I like Fiji.

This local brand called Wata; it has a slight hint of coconut water

Eww...I do not like dasani. Back in Texas, I liked ozarka. In NYC, I like Poland spring. I don't have a SD favorite yet. I like Evian, but only if it's really cold.

Perrier?

I just drink tap water. Evian tastes pretty good but my tap water is clean and safe, although hard so I have to filter, so I stick to that.

I hardly ever buy bottled water, but I think Fiji is the best.

My husband works for a company that makes reusable bottles, including one with a filter, so we really only drink tap water.

However, for the past couple of months I've been hooked on flavored unsweetened sparkling water. I buy the Arrowhead brand because it's the only one I've found that doesn't have any sodium.

I mostly drink filtered (and unfiltered- oh the horror) tap water, but if I buy bottled water it's usually Fiji or Smart Water.

^Heh, been drinking unfiltered tap my whole life essentially. Surely my days are numbered.

I never said why I liked Fiji. It just tastes nice and fresh to me. It doesn't have that bottled flavor that some do.
