The Best Bottled Water
After thinking that all bottled waters were about the same (excluding the mineral waters and flavored waters, just the water waters), I started to pay attention to brands and tastes and found that I have a strong preference for Dasani. I don't know how to describe the taste difference but it does a noticeably better job for me of thirst quenching. What do you prefer?

Also, since Dasani is a Coca Cola product, and I figure that those folks have to be world leaders in beverage science, I wonder if they're doing anything out of the ordinary to their product. AquaFina is probably my second choice, which is a PepsiCo product, so again it concerns me that they're putting something in this besides water. What do you think?

RE: The Best Bottled Water
I like tap water out of a bottle. Usually I run it through a filter and boil it first though.

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.

You cannot successfully determine beforehand which side of the bread to butter.

Just buy a filter for your tap water. It's less expensive, and the same thing.
The charcoal filters on the market are quite effective, in removing bad stuff.

They stopped selling Dasani here, after it emerged that coca cola was just bottling tapwater. Water we paid to have cleaned, they bottled and sold back to us for a huge markup.

Behold the power of the force!

I say don't buy bottled water. Buy a bottle, fill it yourself.
