Water I received has a close best before date, I know water can't go bad but for it to have such a close best before date it's probably been sitting in these bottles for a few years... Who knows what chemicals could be leaking into it...
It’s cheap, and at 500ml, it’s smaller size and slender bottle design makes it easy for my kids to grab on to. They require a little extra “oomph” to open, so be aware of that if you’re giving them to littles or you have arthritis/carpal tunnel/etc. It’s not the crinkly flimsy plastic so you don’t have to worry about it near collapsing on you as you drink. Tastes great too, unlike the weird tap waterflavour. It’s clean.
I’ve been substituting this for lemonade and a squeeze of lime in mixed drinks all summer to cut down on sugar. I’ve also been ‘watering down’ juices and cordials with this. I have dramatically cut my sugar intake, yet still enjoyed drinks as this has so much flavour without the sugar.
This is the somewhat harder to find mango flavour of Mount Franklin sparkling water.
It is unsweetened, with just a hint of mango flavour which, to me, does not even taste like mango but which does make the water taste different than the plain Mount Franklin sparkling water. It ALSO doesn't make it taste like citrus, like the more common lemon and lime flavours do.
If you want a less "sharp"/acidic tasting unsweetened fizzy water, this and the Mount Franklin berry flavour are the way to go.
It is funny to me that these zero calorie waters are packed in the health-conscious (ie, kilojoule-reducing) 250ml can packaging rather than the standard size cans in which one finds fizzy water in America. Do they do this so that drinkers of this water can make a fashion statement of prioritising anything slim? To make it look more like a specialty beverage than a standard canned drink?
