View Full Version : "Vitamin" water

I just drank a little bottle of "vitamin" water I'd grabbed and thrown in my bag after a race recently. Do you think it would sell as well if they called it "sugar" water?!

Of course not! If it's the same stuff I'm thinking of, the company makes a "Fruit Water" too. It used to be really good, water with a bit of fruit essence to give it a bit of flavor. Then they decided they needed to add sugar to it. Totally ruined it for me.

I think the best way to get fruit 'essence' in water (DIY) is to take boiling water and pour it over said fruit. That'll ruin the vitamin C content of it, but you get the flavors fairly well... just put the hot fruit 'tea' in the freezer and let it chill.

I like to add a little crystallized fructose to mine, but to each her own, eh?
