I think I would rather drink that than anything LaCroix offers.

No, it... seemed pretty not crazy.

A bit of an awkward metaphor, but anyone who does think a brand is a living breathing thing is probably Mitt Romney. Brands are people too, my friend.

My guess is this is like Bloomberg and CNBC pushing the "not natural" lawsuit news for two months every hour. Pepsi, Coca-Cola, or both are working their contacts in media. But they don't do much in the "Broke Hipster" demographic so I don't know what their game is.

The only one that isn't disappointment is the unflavored one. Only because you think "hey, this is not bad for water out of a can. I can barely taste the can at all."

I'm trying to string together a Hellen Skelter analogy, what with her getting lost in the attic while Annie Hall searched for her in the South Pacific.

Eh, I just buy Polar or Publix brand depending on what's on sale.  It's sparkling water.  It doesn't really matter.

Except that Bubly crap.  It's foul.  How do you mess up bubbles in water?

LaCroix tastes how I imagine battery acid must taste. Bitter and foul.

You want better flavored water?

The last pic -- if Ice offered cranberry and ginger lime on a regular basis, I'd be very happy.

/Izze is good too, but I think they market themselves as juice

Hey that stuff is to hard for them, it could lead to dancing.

No, actually President Trump makes great speeches, without affecting the fake "southern" accent like pandering crooked Hillary do.

However, this is most appropriate for today's trying times:

Just out of curiosity, are you aware of the difference between sparkling water with artificial no-calorie sweeteners in it, versus sparkling water that's just water and flavoring without any sweetener?

LaCroix is not supposed to taste like the things you pictured. It is intentionally made to not be sweet. People buy it because of that. It's bubbly infused water in a can.

The diet sweet stuff is absolute crap.  Brand doesn't matter...if it's sweet, but isn't a true sugar it should be poured into the nearest urinal.

I have a fridge full of La Croix, and I love it. I don't want the terrible health effects of regular sodas, and I cannot stand artificial sweeteners which taste exactly that--artificial. Chemical. Disgusting. I love a good soda every once in awhile, but they are so cloyingly sweet, it's like gulping straight syrup. I don't need the calorie guilt, and I don't want to give up the fizz. So it works for me. You have to give it time. Orange is a good flavor to start with.

Bubly water is good too, and La Croix could use the competition. They have a green apple flavor I really like.

And yeah ... the metaphor was dumb. I'm in marketing. He would have been better off describing the brand as a baby. Needs a lot of nurturing, guidance, investment, protection against competition, etc.

Yep.

Best deal I've found is a full liter bottle of something called "Casera Agua Mineralizada" at Food For Less for $1.00.

Well, Smelly, it seems like our resident Rhodes Scholar has got you in an escape-proof logic box. There really is no way you can actually respond to his withering reason and remorseless reference to irrefutable facts. You LOSE, Smelly. YOU GET NOTHING! GOOD DAY!

Oh, and thread's over, and happyfundude45: has obviously won. Can someone please get the lights and prepare his fake gold wilted bachelor's button, red dahlia, and wormwood leaf Participation Trophy?

Look I get it.  People aren't speaking to you in a way you understand.  Let me try.

There are some real bad people in this world, like happydude 45.  And did you know, they say, people say that some people they just go into the dryers, the laundry things, and just steal people's clothes.  Anyway this is the biggest refutation.  I challange anyone to tell me why we let people like that out.  And no one will tell me.
