Aquafina Plus+ Vitamins 10 Cal Water



I posted my original review on the ChickAdvisor site so check it out there, and if you found my review helpful  give me a vote there. ^__^
 
A big thanks to ChickAdvisor for sending me six bottles of Aquafina Plus+ Vitamins 10 Cal Water to try and share with friends and family members.  I received three flavours: Black & Blue Berry, Strawberry Lemonade, and Fuji Apple Pear. This drink is beneficial to those who have forgotten to take their daily multivitamin and those who want a guilt-free flavoured drink. This drink does not contain a variety of vitamins for a healthy diet so taking a multivitamin is necessary! A bottle (591mL) contains some of our Daily Recommended Intake (DRI) of Vitamin Bs but satisfies most of our necessary intake of Vitamin C and Vitamin E. The mere 10 calories can be easily burnt off.

The first one I tried was Black & Blue berry; the first sip filled my mouth with a wonderful, ice cold, sweet berry taste. However the pleasure was short lived because the drink is sweetened with Stevia quickly left an unpleasant, tingly, and bitter aftertaste. Thank goodness Aquafina used concentrated fruit juices to sweeten the drink as well, I can’t image how awful the drink would be if the product was sweetened with Stevia alone.

To my disappointment, the tanginess and citrus flavours were completely absent in the Strawberry Lemonade drink. It tasted more like a refreshing smooth Starbucks’ Creamy Strawberry frappuccino, but without the full-bodied flavours. The Fuji Apple Pear had the best flavour out of all 3. This flavour was tasty and has an amazing exotic tropical taste. I would not purchase or recommend the Black & Blue berry and Strawberry Lemonade flavours to anyone. I would recommend the Fuji Apple Pear flavour for those who are intrigued in trying a low calorie vitamin water.

I got chosen for this one too, I was surprised to see so many bottles in the mail, I thought we would get 1-2 only. I am drinking the blackberry one now, the flavour is much stronger than say, vitamin water. Pretty good I would say, I still have to try out the other one. Love chickadvisor! :)
