    I Tried Spindrift Water For The First Time And It Did Not Disappoint

    I feel like I should be on that show "The Best Thing I Ever Ate," except for me it would be "The Best Thing I Ever Drank."

    Hi folks! My name is Abigail, and over quarantine, I have become a bit of sparkling water professional.

    Spindrift is very different than all other sparkling waters I've tried, because Spindrift is made ONLY with sparkling water and fruit juice.

    I have seemingly tried a little bit of every brand, flavor, and type of seltzer. So, when I saw Spindrift in the aisle for the first time, I thought it was only fair that I gave it a go.

    Spindrift offers 11 flavors including grapefruit, lemon, pineapple, lime, cranberry raspberry, and cucumber — just to name a few.

    When I picked up Spindrift for the first time, I was intrigued and excited to try it. I grabbed a variety pack with 30 cans and three different flavors, including lemon, raspberry lime, and grapefruit.

    But once I had actually paid for it and took it home I was skeptical. Do I really like the taste of real fruit juice? Is that what I'm really looking for in a sparkling water? What if it's gross, and I wasted my money?

    Bravo

    Then I figured... I'll just go for it!

    The first flavor I tried was the Lemon, which again *only* contains lemon juice and carbonated water, adding up to a measly three calories.

    This was the flavor I was most excited about, because I assumed you can't go wrong with lemon. At first I was a bit taken aback by the extremely strong lemon flavor and sourness, which I probably should have expected. It took a couple of sips to get over the initial sourness, but after that, it had a just had a bit of a great bite, and was extremely easy to drink.

    Overall, I would rate it a 7/10.

    The lemon flavor was great, but my sensitive palate couldn't seem to get over the sourness. I would still drink this flavor over any other sparkling water brand's lemon flavor.

    Would I suggest it to a friend?

    Yes! Overall, I really liked the lemon flavor, and definitely preferred it to some of the other lemon sparkling waters I've tried, but it definitely wasn't my favorite of the three. I would definitely drink another one, but it wouldn't be my first choice.

    The second flavor I tried was the Raspberry Lime. This flavor consists of carbonated water, raspberry purée, raspberry juice, and lime juice. This all adds up to only nine calories.

    I was excited but skeptical about this flavor. I love raspberries and limes, but wasn't quite sure about the idea of them with no sweeteners. Upon the first sip, I really enjoyed it. The raspberry flavor tasted just like biting into a fresh raspberry with just a little bit of a bite from the lime. The flavor has a bit of a hint of a strange raspberry taste a times, but the tiny bit of funkiness is pretty easy to ignore.

    I would rate this one a solid 9/10.

    It had a really solid raspberry taste with a hint of a lime bite. But no matter how much I loved the flavor, the little bit of a strange raspberry taste knocked off one point. But, I would still (and still do) drink this one daily.

    Would I suggest it to a friend?

    Yeah, I would. I really liked this flavor, and would definitely drink a few cans a night if I could. The raspberry flavor is incredible and tastes just like biting into a fresh raspberry, with a bit of a bite from the lime. The only small issue was the bit of a strange raspberry flavor.

    The next and final flavor I tried was the Grapefruit. This one is made with carbonated water, grapefruit juice, orange juice, lemon juice, hibiscus (for color), and is just sixteen calories.

    I LOVE grapefruit, so I was excited — but unsure if I would love it considering grapefruit's somewhat sour taste. But upon that first sip, I was in love. The grapefruit flavor was absolutely perfect, and the grapefruit flavor was perfectly balanced out by the lemon and orange juice that was added in. I definitely could, and have drank at least three or four of these in one night. I am obsessed.

    I would score this one a 10/10.

    The flavor is P-E-R-F-E-C-T, and makes for the perfect drink to sip on all night. I have absolutely nothing to complain about.

    Would I suggest it to a friend?

    Absolutely YES! From the moment this flavor touched my lips I was obsessed. I thought the grapefruit was the perfect amount of grapefruit flavor with just a hint of sourness, which makes this my favorite drink of all time. This flavor is definitely one I've started drinking nearly daily, and my true love for the flavor has not faded.

    I can confidently say that Spindrift has successfully has become my favorite brand and flavor of sparkling water.

    All of the flavors were awesome, and I finished at least one of all three flavors, but I liked some *cough* grapefruit *cough* better than others.
