I was hurrying home after work and got thirsty. I ran into the local drug store near my office and thought I was purchasing Dasani water. I accidently purcashed Dasani Lemon flavored water. Let me warn you. DO NOT buy this drink. It does not taste like lemon water. Lemon water is refreshing. This stuff was awful. I didn't throw it out though because I thought Niel might enjoy it. So I offered it to him. His reaction was "This is Das CRAP!"

Did Niel also say that Dasani is German for "the Ani" :-)

foodiechickie said...

Why yes he did!! LOL!!

Jesser said...

Lemon Propel is nasty too. Smells like Pledge cleaner. Yuck!!! Why can't people get lemon flavoring right??

foodiechickie said...

Seriously!!

curlygirl said...

Thanks for the warning!!

foodiechickie said...

Glad to be of service. But maybe someone else may like it. We just did not.

Kelvin said...

Actually, I kinda liked it. But that could be because I drink so much water without a taste to it. I thought that it was watered down lemonade. A little bit of taste but not worth buying a case of in my opinion.

foodiechickie said...

Aaaah an opinion from the other side. See some people may like it others may not. I looove water and dislike flavored water. But that is just me.

MzAriez said...

I agree. It abused the taste buds and left no remains of being refreshed.

foodiechickie said...

Umm yes.

alexis said...

Stay away from the rasberry Dasani as well. Blech!

Hannah said...

Wow. I didn't know Dasani made flavored water. I like Aquafina flavored water. It's naturally sweet. Some of the others have splenda, which I don't like. Thanks for the heads up about Dasani.

foodiechickie said...

Thanks Alexis for that warning as well.

I figured Aquafina had flavored water too. Dasani and Aquafina are competitors.

niel said...

Do I always saw that German for "the Ani" thing??

Wow I can be really obnoixous

foodiechickie said...

I find it cute Niel!

Ok, I'm the only odd one. Here's the thing: I HATE THE TASTE OF WATER! I hate, hate, hate water. I NEVER drink it. I had to force myself sometimes literally through tears to drink some when I was pregnant. I know that's not a good thing but I just never drink water. That is, until now. Now that there are some flavored ones. We get the huge boxes of flavored Propel and I drink almost all of them. I haven't had the lemon Dasani but I have the raspberry one at work almost every day. So, there. I am the reason these products are made. Sorry. :(

foodiechickie said...

Don't be sad. I know tons of people who hate the taste of water. It's ok. As long as you're getting water in you. I love water and I was not drinking enough two years ago that I had to be hospitalized for dehydration because I hadn't made #2 in a month. Now that is baaad! So now I am sure to drink loooots of water!!! I am sure other brands make lovely flavored water. I just didn't like the Dasani and I like the regular taste of water. Hee Hee. It's a personal preference. I still like ya! LOL!

Lisa said...

I hated it too! EWE! It is not refreshing. It is sickning! YUK!

foodiechickie said...

Aaah you've had the same experience?

Tammy said...

I wholeheartedly agree. If I WANTED a nice cold glass of Pledge, I'd pour myself a nice cold glass of Pledge.

The raspberry was "meh" in my opinion. Not great, but it didn't make me want to apologize to my taste buds like the lemon did.

LadyGypsy said...

Holy moly..no #2 for an entire month? Poor girl!

I hated lemon dasani too. It didn't taste like lemon at all! There's more lemon flavor in the little packets of fake lemon juice you get at some fast food joints than in the dasani.

(pouring self a glass of water)

Coke has a Dasani bottling operation here in Calgary. They received some public criticism a couple of years ago because we had drought conditions and they were still bottling our tap water :) Yeah, I could either turn on the faucet at home or pay $1+ to drink out of a nice plastic bottle LOL!

foodiechickie said...

Tammy that made me laugh so hard. LOL! And you can be sure I so will not be trying the rasberry flavor either.

Yes LG no #2. It sucked big time!

I've heard those rumors to Laura that Dasani is just tap water. So not right.
