Just frozen water .... I'm positive they'd be okay. After all - if you froze some bottled water yourself you'd think that was okay to have, it's just ice at the end of the day. xx

erm, isn't this the emperor's new clothes?! :confused:

money for old rope if you ask me. just get a lolly-making set (in most pound shops, supermarkets etc) and freeze your own water ;) much cheaper and far less wasteful!

but it's just ice! why would you buy ice? :confused:
ah well each to their own, lol

yes they'd probably be fine - i guess they have to, for legal reasons, state there's a trace of stuff in them. depends if you're willing to run the gauntlet and take the risk...;)

I'm with Elle-emm here- why spend money on frozen water?

Are they flavoured at all? If they are, I'd stay clear.

Well, ice cubes are a little different- they usually involve alcohol, and you have to create an 'atmosphere'? :p;) If you use a lot it makes sense to buy them as they're only £1 a bag or so?

LOL - when I was on LT last year I used to do a 'big shop' which consisted of a shed load of Volvic & some bathroom / wash supplies.. that took all of 5 minutes... then I used to wander around smelling stuff for 30 mins... :D

Smelling stuff rocks !

I've wondered about this sparkling water for shakes thing. Tell me do you blend or shake sir? Cus I can't imagine it not going crazy either way? But I'm intrigued by the fizzy chocolate thing -I reckons I'd like that! Pray tell me how!:D

I have one of those magic bullet blender thingies, which is superb for chipping Ice and fizzing up, just remember every 10-15 secs just loosen for a second to release the gas. it only takes 30 or so seconds tops so as long as you vent once or twice its great.

I actually really like them, someone suggested a sweetener as well.......maybe next time.

Whist 8 miles high on psychedelic Class A's in the early 90's some friends & I made fizzy milk with an old soda stream... it was bizarre.... but that might've been the acid... :eek:

WHAT?! LOL Remember Soda Streams? I noticed them in Argos the other day -but I haven't seen the juices in possibly decades! lol. Perhaps I'll get one and try your fizzy milk concoction ya Trainspotting extra!
