Does anyone really think water tastes different?

I'll admit there are a couple brands of bottled water that taste like the bottle that it's been sitting in...but I wouldn't not drink it. My husband only likes one kind, and will literally drink something else if he's offered certain brands of water. I drink it all! lol How about you?
He literally won't buy the other water, if his "Ice Mountain" isn't at the store...he'll go somewhere else to get it...*eye roll* lol

  • There is one called Arrowhead around here and it is horrible. Most of the others taste the same to me, but that one IS gross!

  • Yes, the water source picks up different minerals etc, so they do taste different. I've also noticed that the pH also makes a difference. So I do have ones I prefer.

  • They do taste different. I like Dasani and the Walmart brand. I too will not drink any other kind. Most taste salty to me.

  • They all have a different taste to me, but there are very few that I don't like. Like you said, they taste like the bottle. But if the store doesn't have one that I prefer, I'll just grab a different one.

  • Yea, I think they taste different, but I no longer ever used bottles water, it is a huge waste.

  • Absolutely. Dasani, Voss, and Fiji taste the best to me. My husband never believed the difference, then I told him to set up a taste test. He used tap water, Dasani, Walmart brand, and Arrowhead (which I'm pretty sure the name changed, but I'm not sure what it is now), and I chose right on every one of them. That shut him up, lol. Tap water is the WORST to me, and I can't drink it.

  • I am a little picky about water. I don't want to taste anything! My tap water tastes like it came out of a garden hose. My "filtered" water from our refrigerator dispenses tastes a little salty. I like purified or distilled water with no taste. Sometimes I buy nursery water with fluoride. But, if there's not much choice, I'll drink any COLD water. :)
