Mmm... vitamin water..

I tried a couple bottles of "Vitamin Water" and it tastes exactly what I want an energy drink to taste like. Light, very slightly sweet, and a small amount of various vitamins and minerals. It's pretty refreshing. If only they had a lil more malodextrin or whatever it is that adds a little more carbs to it.

Heh, yeah, just don't be like my buddy who was quickly browsing through the selections and accidentally picked up "MELON" instead of his desired choice, "LEMON".

I can't stand the stuff myself but if you've found something you like, have at it!

Any one ever use Miricle Water. It is actually a powder you mix with water. No carbs, just minerals, salts etc... The sports teams (soccer, football) around here swear by that stuff. Can find in some heath food stores. It has no carbs and a decent but faint lemon lime taste?

No, it's literally called vitamin water.

Next to vitamin water, gatorade tastes almost like soda.

Wow, my granny gave me some "vitmain water" this morning, it's great.

The carton said "orange juice" -- ever hear of it?

Haha! I like all those Glaceau products: smartwater, vitaminwater, etc.
'Sportsdrinks' taste nasty!
