To the people who think all water taste the same…

Over the course of being alive on this earth, I have fallen in love with water. It is my go-to beverage for any meal or when I am feeling parched. Whenever I am asked if I would like some water, I reply, “of course.” If I am asked what I would like to drink, I always say, “water.” 

I have tasted different waters from many companies and the best ones by far are Fiji, Smartwater, and Kirkland (Costco’s brand). They have a smooth texture and clean taste with no weird aftertaste. It’s just pure hydration.

On the other hand, brands like Niagara and Dasani have ingredients which makes you thirstier. For instance, Dasani bottled water contains four ingredients: tap water, magnesium sulfate, potassium chloride, and salt. Niagara’s water contains: Purified Water, Magnesium Chloride, Calcium Chloride, Potassium Bicarbonate. These water companies’ waters have a bad aftertaste and not good for consumers to drink.

Crystal Geyser and Arrowhead taste like tap water that has been drained for the sewers. Both of these companies claim that they are bottled at the natural source, so maybe that’s why it has sort of a weird taste. Or maybe they just really taste bad.
