Is that what happened to "fruit water?" I used to drink that stuff like crazy but can't find it anymore. I used to buy it at Whole Foods. The labels were really similar.

Crystalline fructose is almost always made from corn and if VW is a Coke product you can bet that the fructose in it is from corn. I've read that fructose is often just as bad as HFCS. REALLY not good for you.

I'm surprised no one has commented about Coconut water! It's a great, natural isotonic beverage. You can get it at Whole Foods or most health/organic markets. 100% coconut water, low sugar, high nutrients. Very tasty! http://www.onenaturalexperience.com/...FQplHgoduR-Dfg My MWs recommended this instead of gatoraid to combat muscle spasms in my legs.

I can only drink ice cold water or I add a little bit of juice to my water. Even unsweetened cranberry juice with some lime juice added to my water made it tolerable. HTH

I'm amazed no one said Kefir water! What kinds of MDCers are we!

I've never heard of kefir water. Is it a byproduct of making kefir?

When I'm pregnant and feeling sick there are very few drinks I can tolerate. Vitamin Water happens to be one of them I can. Trader Joe's makes its own version of them, but I doubt they're any healthier.

Yeah! Sorry, I'm lactose intolerant, so we never have any milk. I just kinda forget milk exist!

As a pp mentioned, they were recently bought by Coke. But the sugar content was high even before the acquisition...my DH does a lot of work with Glaceau. They used to have the fruit essence water, but it was discontinued.

Had to chime in, though...I fully maintain that the quantity of SmartWater I drank during pregnancy resulted in a brilliant DD.

I really like SmartWater, but not so much Vitamin Water. I add Cosmopolitan mix to my water (cranberry and lime) which does have sugar, but it's a very small amount in relation to the water.
