I've never tried it but everyone is talking about it because the rapper 50 Cent just made a cool 400 million on it today: http://www.allhiphop.com/hiphopnews/?ID=7138

Well I'll be that's funny. Damn coca-cola. I hate these big buyouts to companies that are better than them.

He owns 10% of a boutique bottled water company? Boy's got some mad street cred right there, holmes.

Yup, I'm with ya on this one. The copy on the bottles is genius too, makes for solid brand affinity

Nah....it's "ok", but not the best.

BTW....I used to live in Riverview, FL (I think we had this conversation before) and I have family in Zephyrhills (ok....technically Wesley Chapel, but come on...same thing).

<Begin Water Snob> There's "bottled water" and then there's "bottled water" <End Water Snob>

Aside from having a bottle, most of the dasani or smart water crap is just tap water. So far, I'm pretty hooked on gerosteiner, it's got the right combination of taste and texture, very refreshing. Apollinaris is kind of like gerosteiner except smoother.

Of course if you get really fancy you have the 6000 year old malmberg water and the 10000 year old vellamo.

I saw this in the store the other day and found it very ironic that a $1.50 bottle of water is called 'Smart Water'.

I haven't tried Smart Water, but I do like Vitamin Water a whole lot more than Gatorade, Powerade, or the other similar "energy" drinks, as it's not as sweet or potent in flavor as Gatorade and the others are. Saw the 50 Cent ad on TV not too long ago and thought "wow, Vitamin Water must be doing pretty well.." (the commercial I saw was actually for Vitamin Water, not Smart Water).

So what is the best water here you have found? I live in Riverview very near 301 and Symmes Rd. New subdivision called Rivercrest. I did not catch the post that told why you went to Seattle. A better job, or retirement after you won the Fantasy 5? Are you coming back to St Pete?

That's the real problem with bottled water... the bottles.

I think a good home filter system is a heck of a lot more efficient and sustainable.
