  • YES I can tast a difference!!! Some taste like theirs sawdust or something in it! And if it's inbetween cold and warm, it tastes like plastic to me! I prefer our tap becuase it's actually pure water!!! I live in Alaska and it's like drinking it right from the mountain streams :) If I do have to drink out of the bottle, I always go for dasani! It's like their plastic doesn't taste so bad LOL

  • I think some of the ones with added minerals have a slight taste to them that I don't find in the others.

  • ha ha Glad I'm not the only one to think so! I think some of them taste like greasy or something. Like they've got cooking oil added to them. My favorite is Deja Blue! LOVE IT!

  • I can taste the difference. Dasani is my favorite because it tastes the cleanest.

  • Definitely. I can't stand the water in the water cooler at work and everyone at work thinks I'm crazy because the tap water tastes better to me. There are brands of bottled water I prefer - Smart Water, Dasani, Aquafina... but I don't like most of our local brands (I live near Hot Springs, AR - we have several local water bottlers)

  • Huh I think arrowhead is icky, I swear I taste chlorine. My fav is earth 2o It's bottled here in oregon. Always perfect imo
    Arrowhead, and I know aquafina is just purified tap water, I know there is more but can't remember. Oh the nestle one
