I admit. I’m a sucker for new products.
So Metromint was an easy one for me to try — I like mint, and I don’t like sugary drinks (very often). Plus, it was on sale for about a third off the list price.
Verdict? Good. Nice clean taste. The bottles said “-6 degrees” (Spearmint) and “-8 degrees” (Peppermint). That’s a bit confusing — are you supposed to chill them to that temperature for maximum enjoyment? (If you were, there would have to be some anti-freeze ingredient.)
Final verdict? Don’t buy. Why?
1. The bottled water problem of your having to dispose of or recycle the bottle and the environmental costs of transporting the water to your store. (Pipes do it cheaper — if you live in North America, anyhow.)
2. Try my much cheaper version here. Not as cool-looking, but it does taste good.
