La Croix Grapefruit Sparkling Water

IMG_0334La Croix offers seven refreshing sparkling water flavors for your sodium- free and zero calories enjoyment: pure sparkling water, berry, cran-raspberry, lemon, lime, orange and grapefruit. When I say zero calories, I do not mean artificially sweetened zero calorie drinks, I REALLY mean zero calories. La Croix is your basic flavored sparkling water that comes in more flavors than just your standard lemon and lime. Simple ingredients of water, carbon and natural flavor (nothing artificial). No sugar is exactly what I want in my water. I’ve never seen grapefruit flavor sparkling water in any other brands so I gave this particular flavor a whirl.  The water is clear and you can see bubbles inside from the carbon. Looks an awful lot like sprite. The grapefruit flavor is not overwhelming. You are essentially drinking flavored carbon water.  This flavor is the most unique I’ve had in my sparkling water days. Unsweetened flavored water maybe the stepping stone to  those who are addicted to soda or diet soda to kick the habit. Sparkling water offers the same carbonation, minus all the sugar and artificial ingredients, with a hint of flavor that is the ultimate refreshment on a hot summer day.  The fact that the cans resemble soda cans should help with the mental aspect of things too. Unsuspecting people usually think I am drinking a “no name brand” soda instead of being all healthy and drinking water all the time when I have a can of La Croix in my hand. The can is 12 fl ounce which is easy to finish before it loses its carbonation. The fizziness of the water lasts a pretty decent amount of time after you open it. Nutritional information is zero across the board in case you were wondering. In some places, Costco offers a variety pack of 24 for around $6.99 which is the best price I’ve seen for these. That must be a regional thing because my Costco only carries Perrier, S. Pellegrino, and Crystal Geyser sparkling waters.
