Review: Hint Flavored Water

Review: Hint Flavored Water

Another solid contender in the lightly flavored water category: Hint is mild — but distinctly — flavored, all natural and with no sweeteners added.

I tried two varieties: Strawberry-Kiwi and Cucumber. 13 flavors are currently available in total. I found both versions very good, though obviously different as night and day. The cucumber version is cool and refreshing — perhaps a bit too much cucumber for my tastes, but still quite pleasant. The strawberry and kiwi water was, as expected, considerably sweeter but not cloying. Again, this one was quite refreshing and distinct in its strawberry-ness. (The poor kiwi never stands a chance against the monstrous strawberry.)

Assuming the rest of the line is as tasty, Hint is a nice little diversion from plain water — and certainly feels like a better value than paying for unflavored bottled water.

    Um, I can almost get two cases of good beer for that price. I guess these guys haven’t figured out yet that the economy is bad and bottled water is on the down low.

    Ry – I should add that those are mail-order prices, and include free shipping, for what that’s worth.

    Either way, i have to agree with Ry. My tap gives me practically free water and if I want to flavor it, I open . It’s way cheaper and tastes better than the fake flavors hints throwing down. For a drink hacker, I’d expect you to try making your own too.
