    Hey peeps, noticed a strange thing today..

    Was out and about and I am trying to up my intake of the old H2O.:D

    Not thinking, I just grabbed the nearest sports bottle from the shop and off I went.. OMG YUCK!!! :spit:

    My friends thinks I have lost the plot, says it just tastes like water!!!

    I get home to my old faithful - Morrison's value sparkling 16p per 2 liters and wow:drool:

    What a difference.

    Anyone else the same, or am I weird LOL

    I cant stomach water with a high sodium content because it tastes, well, salty to me.

    And I also scrutinize the label to see which one has least to no fluoride in it because I like to avoid that as much as possible.

    I usually just drink chilled tap water tho - I have a bottle of volvic I just keep refilling and chucking in the fridge because my tap water doesnt get cold enough for my liking.

    i agree, different brands taste different due to the mineral content.
    and i also like it at room temperature, hate cold things, was never an icecream fan, fortunately!

    I too think tap water is the best, evian reminds me of swimming pool water yuk! Infact I don't really like most bottled water. Must be too used to drinking my lovely Scottish tap water :-D x

    The only water I've found that I dont like is Evian, to me it has such a horrible taste to it. My favourites are volvic, asda's Eden Falls and tap water from by britta
