When The Glucoholic ran across Aquafina FlavorSplash Grape Flavored Water he almost passed it up. Why not? There are too many flavored waters on the market now. What’s one more? How different could it really be? Quite different in fact. We were really pleased with this product. It’s probably the best flavored water we’ve tried to date. The taste is smooth and does not suffer from any of the aftertaste that other products do, especially the ones that contain substandard sweeteners. The grape flavor is stronger and sweeter than most grape flavored waters. Pepsi’s marketing material claims that they use Concorde grapes in the production of this flavor, and we think this was a wise choice. Our only regret while reviewing Aquafina FlavorSplash Grape Flavored Water was that we didn’t pick up all of the FlavorSplash flavors and do one of our “Battle Of” series installments. If the quality of the other flavors is as good as this one then we believe Pepsi has a real winner on their hands.
Nutritionally, there’s not much to report about Aquafina FlavorSplash Grape Flavored Water, which is a good thing. There are 85mg of sodium per 8 ounce serving and that’s it. Pepsi should make note of the overall quality and superb sweetness accomplished by using only Splenda to sweeten this product. We can think of several of their diet soda offerings that could use some of the same engineering. We can’t wait to try the other FlavorSplash flavors.
