Metromint Peppermint Water

Let's face it--64 ounces of water per day is a lot, and, at times, facing yet another glass of the stuff is just more palate-boredom than I can take. It is this "boredom" that keeps me ever on the lookout for new and interesting ways to gulp down the required amount.

Testing the "unusual" waters out there is typically a frustrating and disappointing experience for me. Considering I have only two requirements for my "flavored" water--it must be low in calories, and it cannot contain sweetener of any kind--I can't comprehend why there are so few products that fit my credentials.

Metromint Peppermint Water, however, not only met both of my requirements, but surprised me with a few additional "health benefits." I was, of course, thrilled to find that this water was unsweetened and had zero calories. I was even more thrilled to discover the giant icy blast of cool flavor it delivered--certainly nothing yawn-inducing!

I was most thrilled, however, when Metromint helped me workout when I had an upset stomach. I'd heard that peppermint could soothe the stomach, so last week when I was feeling rather queasy, I grabbed a bottle of Metromint on my way to the gym. I sipped it throughout my workout, and it kept the "queasies" at bay. Impressive.

Manufacturer says: Pure. Simple. Mintwater. Metromint water is deliciously refreshing purified water with mint grown from the Yakima Valley in Washington. There's no sugar or other sweeteners added--so go ahead and enjoy this natural, 0 calorie beverage without guilt!

They all say: Good

Try it now: Metromint Peppermint Water

This stuff tastes like bad mouthwash. Awful. I would rather drink plain seltzer water. Yuck!

I'm starting to stress about my first bike race of the year tomorrow, mainly because it's in the desert outside of San Diego, almost in Mexico. So for the past two days I've been drinking gallons (literally) of gatorade and water. Needless to say, a change of pace would be greatly appreciated. Enter: MetroMint Peppermint Water.

I'll admint, after the first swig, all I could think of was "Altoids chased down with Poland Spring". Not the end of the world, I kind of like altoids. After a few more sips, the initial shock-factor wore off and I was really liking this stuff. Peppermint gum now, not altoids anymore. It's got that oh-so-familiar refreshing feel and taste of water, with a little something extra for your taste-buds.

Like it?
Yes. Happy to have some alternatives to plain old water.

Good for Training?
Of course! It's identical to water, and you'll probably drink more of it because it tastes better.
The only reason to drink this foul beverage is if you want to sanitize your innards. Go for the Propel
