We really hate doing negative reviews, but here comes another one! Hint Blackberry Flavored Water was totally uninspiring. It really baffles us that a new flavored water with horrible flavor hits the market seemingly every day. You would think that simple economics would bring about the end to this trend. A flavored water is pretty bad when you can say “I would rather drink plain old tap water because it tastes much better.” This water tastes like you took a glass of tap water, sprinkled in a few grains of any blackberry flavored powdered candy, and added a few drops of battery acid for flavor. In possibly the biggest blunder ever executed for a review, we actually went back and purchased another flavor thinking we might have just picked a particularly bad one to begin with. No dice.
Another thing that cracked us up about Hint water is that every bottle’s label contains the phrase “Unsweetened Essence Water”. Slipping a little too close to homeopathy quackery for our taste here. It’s false advertising either way - we couldn’t find the essence of any distinguishable flavor in this water. Besides, if The Glucoholic was in to spending money on things that were totally useless, he would certainly order some “Essence of the Ability to Date Salma Hayek” on the Internet before wasting any on Hint flavored water. Here’s a hint - don’t buy this water.
