Growing up, I hated drinking water. It was the liquid equivalent of homework. The only drink that was worse to me was milk. Years later, bottled water has become one of my favorite drinks, and Dasani is the brand that I drink most often.
It’s In The Bottle
Many people decry the popularity of bottled water. The idea of paying for water when they can pour a glass from the faucet seems wasteful, but they are wrong. It’s not the water that you’re paying for; it’s the packaging and filtering. The last time I poured a glass of water from my tap, I was sadly disappointed. Dasani water is conveniently packaged in various size plastic bottles. The bottles make it easy to store in the refrigerator, carry with you to work, or throw on the ground while you play your favorite sport. Dasani even has several convenient refrigerator packs that stow large quantities of water easily.
Taste Is King
One of the reasons I frequently choose Dasani is the taste. I can hear the protests already, “But you can’t taste water!” That’s the point. Good water is virtually tasteless. Too often, I will purchase a discount or generic brand of water, and I am overwhelmed with the milky taste of minerals and calcium. Try your local tap water and see if you can detect the chlorinated taste of poorly filtered water. Dasani isn’t the best tasting water I’ve ever had, but it’s real good. It has a clean, virtually tasteless texture that goes down easily. There’s nothing worse than a bottle of water that leaves you feeling heavy.
Availability, Availability, Availability and Cost
The most important factors are availability and cost. I can find Dasani in any grocery. It is in most restaurants and even in many fast-food establishments. Frequently, it can even be found in vending machines, and the cost is just right. Sure, it isn’t as cheap as generic brands, but it also is much more affordable than designer brands such as Fiji.
So, the next time you plunk down some change for a sugary soda, take a look and see if Dasani water is available. You’ll be hydrated faster, stay healthier, and be able to better savor the taste of your meal. Better yet, stock your fridge with one of those handy fridge packs.
