Another member is asking about this on H&W and so I thought I'd make a post here. My favorites are:

Crystal Geyser Spring Water
Arrowhead Spring Water

When I want to treat myself I buy

Essentia
Volvic
Iceland

I don't drink carbonated water nor drinks. And I may again try some Dasani as I have not had it in a long time.

Different waters are available in different parts of the country.

Your favorite?

Thanks for starting this thread. As you already know, I usually drink Dasani, but am going to try some of the ones you mentioned. Maybe do a taste test with my husband. I really don't like any tap water I've ever tasted. We did have a Brita water filter a while back, but I still didn't like the taste of the water.

I don't like carbonated water, but I do like some carbonated drinks.

Another bottled water I like, but rarely buy because it's very overpriced, is VOSS. I love the look of their bottles and the water is good.

(I recycle all of my bottles and everything else I possibly can.)

When/if you do have some Dasani again, please let us know what you think of it. Here's a link I found that I thought was interesting:

Tried that arrowhead when we visited California a few years ago. Bought a case of it for our hotel room. Neither of us cared for it.

I tried Dasani once. I was so sick. They add magnesium to the water. At least they did at that time. Ive never tried it since. Terrible!

The tap water in our town is virtually undrinkable. It's treated with Chloramine, which tastes just like Chlorine, and it has an odd aroma on top of that. We buy bottled water from a company called Glacier. There is a dispenser at our local grocery store. It costs $2 for 5 gallons of water dispensed into your own plastic 5 gallon containers. The water is delicious and lasts us about 5 to 6 days. I feel like it's a pretty good deal considering the alternative.

I just looked at a bottle of Dasani. It says the ingredients are: water, magnesium sulfate, potassium chloride and a negligible amount of salt. So yes, Dasani does still contain magnesium.

All of these minerals are in just about every type of bottled water and also in most tap water. I'm not sure why or how magnesium would make you sick, or why you thought that was the cause of your illness, but I don't blame you for never wanting to drink it again, if you were sick when you did.

If you don't mind me asking, what do you mean by "sick?" Were you nauseated, vomiting or what? I'm not sure how such a small amount of magnesium would cause any illness. Magnesium is essential to human life and health. It's in many foods. Here's an article about it:

Do you drink other brands of bottled water?

Our home well water is the best drink in the house, IMO.

Severe nausea was almost immediate after drinking the dansani. I was fine before I drank that bottle of water. It was sealed and was one of 6 in a 6 pack. I gave the rest away though it wasnt easy to find someone who liked it. I was told by a biologist friend that it was probably the added mag. A bottle of dansani is very different than eating a handful of nuts or any other naturally occurring source. If you are adding those minerals to bottled water its not a naturally occurring source. Most NA water sources have low levels of those minerals.

Oh, I know that water and know many people do this but I can't -- we have some centers at a couple of our health food stores.
