This water has a very mild taste. It is not bad, but I would like it to taste more like orange so I add orange flavoring to it or some other orange drink. If you buy the six pack it is relatively inexpensive. I know people think buying bottled water is stupid, but it’s healthier and less fattening than drinking soft drinks.
Each bottle has zero calories because it is sweetened with sucralose which is, I believe, Splenda. I used to drink another brand until the stores around me quit carrying it. I find that the flavored water mixes well with other non-carbonated drinks and can be used to make other drinks less tart. By itself, it is just okay. I’d rather have it than no orange water at all, but I wish they could make it taste more like orange….or even orange candy. The water is sweet because of the artificial sweetener and the sweetener kind of drowns out the orange taste so the aftertaste is not of the orange, but of the sweetener.
It is best served cold but it is okay lukewarm. Unlike its competitor, it is readily available and about 85 cents per bottle if bought in a six pack. If I’m not in the mood for plain water, it is an okay choice, but mostly I mix it with other orange drinks. I’ve never mixed it with real orange juice because I don’t really like regular orange juice. I love fresh squeezed orange juice, but I don’t think I could bear to dilute it with anything.
