Personally I don't like water at all, it makes me feel like im gagging. I live of juice and drinks like that. The only water i can stand is Fiji water, I dont know why but its the only one that tastes like its not been purified with filters and all the stuff they do to those other waters. So i love Fiji water. The thing that I hate about it its that its very expensive, but because its the only water that satisfies me, ill buy it.

I agree, it is particulary good tasting water. And I live in NYC, which has some of the best tasting tap water in the world.  Smile

I must admit, as an added bonus, I also think it's kinda neat that it actually comes all the way from Fiji.

That's like saying "wine is wine." Yes, it's all fermented grape juice, but it sure as hell does NOT all taste the same!

Did any of you guys see the article about some of those "exotic" bottled waters?

One of them was just pumped right out of Lake Michigan (the funny part was my sister drank that brand, and she HAD lake water from her tap) the other was being pumped out of a well underneath an abandoned asphalt plant. Yum.

Tap water is good enough for me most times. When I can't get tap, like when I'm driving long distance, yeah, I'll just buy the bottled stuff. But usually the store brand. Water is water people.

omg, I seriously was looking for a "just kidding" at the end of some of your posts...

Tastes good? Tastes like frickin' water is what it tastes like! And what does water taste like? Nothing! Makes sense. I don't know where you're getting all these descriptions of the water's flavor. Maybe it tastes good because you don't have good tap water, but store brand Safeway water will do the same thing for you as Fiji water...

Ano no, it's not cool/hip to boast that you drink Fiji water, if that's what you were thinking...

Do I detect some sarcasm? I've never been to NYC

OK, a story.

It's early 2000 (or so, guess it had to be because I flew to LA on Legend).

A business associate and I visit the left coast to see clients- big dot com, gonna be millionaires, yadda yadda.

Go out to supper at a snooty restaurant, lots of bowing and scraping and ass-kissing. Client contact (the VC guy) has a twenty-something pretty boy whose apparent function is to go to restaurants ahead of everyone else and schmooze, and to send back food and drinks two or three times to point out how picky we all are.

He orders Fiji Water ("it's so much better than that other crap..."), it's erved from that square bottle with a Sterling-Silver-Water-Bottle-Holder (that improves the experience dramatically). Water is, IIRC, $10.00 or so per bottle.

Tasted just like water.

Fast-forward about three weeks, and I am back home in Texas (where businesses, by and large, survive on revenue rather than click-throughs), and my child bride and I go to Garden Ridge Pottery (a massive store with cheap imported decorative stuff, fake plants, wicker baskets, candles, all sorts of stuff guys do not shop for unless they are married and dutiful).

There, by the check-out register, is a stack of cut-open cases of Fiji Water. Priced: $0.69/bottle.

H2O is H2O.

And by the way, New York City has traditionally been known for good tap water. I dunno if it still is or not, but it used to be decent. As for me, I prefer the water in Houston, where you can see the fiber you are getting in every glass.

PS- The dot-com went dot-bomb. Big surprise.

No, it wasn't sarcasm! NYC honestly does have some of the best tasting tap water in the world--it comes from reservoirs upstate--and as a result I rarely drink bottled water at home. In restaurants, that's pretty much how you can tell the locals from the tourists and the people who are simply trying too hard--waiters usually offer "sparkling, still, or regular," but few people who actually live here would order anything but the latter.

That said, I often find myself in places where I would not touch the water (e.g., Mexico) or where the water simply tastes bad--overly chlorinated or otherwise (e.g., Florida--from my experience, at least). So I have tried a variety of brands of bottled water, and some definitely taste better than others. Although they are all basically H2O, there are significant differences in the mineral content that alter the taste--if you tried them side by side I'm sure you'd notice. Fiji happens to taste pretty good, so I stand by my earlier post.

Heres an boring Urban legend for you about water. In the early 1800's The water That Londoners used to drink from the Thames had usually gone through at least seven people before they got to drink it.  Nuts
