Most have probably heard that being healthy and looking your best includes eating well, getting plenty of sleep and drinking lots of water. I have a tough time with all three of these from time to time.
However, when I am doing a good job at all three I always notice a difference in how I look and feel—and it’s amazing.
In fact, when I’m not feeling well drinking water is one of the easiest things I do to relieve symptoms. But, I really don’t like the taste of plain H2O. I’m not alone: About 20 percent of Americans dislike the flavor of plain water according to the Wall Street Journal. I’m always dressing it up with a squirt of lemon juice (okay, several lemon juice squirts). That’s the easiest way for me to drink water, or sometimes I drink sparkling water beverages.
But I had a hard time finding a flavored water that I actually like. I think a lot of them taste too sweet or the flavor is too bland. Well, I recently received a bottle of Nestle Splash flavored water in Mandarin orange for sampling purposes and I was pleasantly surprised. I actually liked it. I already like the Nestle brand of plain water as it doesn’t have a funny mineral taste like other water brands.
The Nestle Splash flavored water is crisp, refreshing and the mandarin orange flavor adds a little punch without being overpowering. It still taste like water, but with a hint of flavor. It reminds me of a refreshing glass of water with maybe a few orange slices in it—just enough to give you a subtle burst of citrus, but not so much it taste like watered down orange juice.
If the taste of plain water bores you, try something like this. Even though I received a complimentary bottle to sample, this is truly my honest opinion. After testing this, I actually went out and bought a six pack of the Nestle Splash flavored water in Acai Grape flavor—also delicious! And it was only $1.48 for a six-pack at my local Walmart. That was less expensive than the the Sparkling Ice flavored sparkling waters I usually by for $1 each.
I’ll be buying the other flavors soon!
