Whether it’s La Croix or Bubbly, bottled and canned waters are all the rage right now. Sure, they’re lower in calories and sugar than regular soda, but if you’re not exactly looking for yet another run-of-the-mill fruit-flavored water, you’re not alone.
We thought we were hip to all the flavored water options on the market, but when we went on a quest for new, exciting and tongue-teasing sensations on the market, we discovered a whole new world of options.
Believe it or not, there’s a lot to get addicted to when it comes to low-sugar hydration. And they don’t all involve artificial fruit flavors. In the bottled and canned waters ahead, you’ll find maple packing a punch with almost 50 nutrients, the appearance of trendy apple cider vinegar, waters made from tree saps most people don’t give a second thought to, and H2O packed with all the flavor and health benefits of wine with none of the alcohol.
