I’ve talked before about how I have a hard time drinking plain water. I need to drink more water but it’s just not something that comes naturally to me. The only time in my life that I enjoyed drinking water was when I was pregnant. How random is that?! I could not get enough ice water though and constantly felt like I was parched.
Now though? I mostly just feel guilty that I’m not drinking enough and I try to find ways to trick myself into drinking more. I’ve become a big fan of sparkling water, but I’ve also been on the lookout for new things.
A few months ago I found Hint Water at Whole Foods and picked up a bottle of Hint Watermelon Water. Hint is 100 percent pure water that contains a splash (OK, a hint) of fruit flavor. The water has zero diet sweeteners, zero calories and zero preservatives. (If you’re curious, here’s the breakdown of how they add flavor to the water without adding sugar.)
So back to that watermelon water. I liked it, but couldn’t see spending nearly $2 per bottle to keep purchasing it at Whole Foods.
While I let the watermelon go, I have been keeping an eye out for Hint Kick Water, which is water containing flavor AND caffeine. Based on my coffee consumption I probably don’t need any more caffeine in my life, but I still needed to try it.
I got my chance this month when my PopSugar Must Have Box arrived and inside I found a bottle of Lemon Cayenne Hint Kick.
Truthfully, this is never a flavor I would have purchased. NEVER. I don’t like spicy things. I avoid cayenne like the plague. But when I found the bottle in my box I was overcome with curiosity and had to try it.
The reason I’m telling you to treat yourself to some of this water is that I absolutely loved it. LOVED. Whereas the watermelon flavoring was almost too subtle, there’s only so much you can mask the flavor of cayenne. The water wasn’t hot, but it did have a hint of a kick. Would I recommend drinking cayenne water after running a marathon? Absolutely not. But if you have a hard time drinking water like I do? Absolutely! The lemon and cayenne make this water very sippable and I can honestly say I have never enjoyed drinking water as much as I enjoyed this bottle.
And that natural caffeine? It absolutely works! I used it as a mid-afternoon pick-me-up and was good the rest of the day.
Hint Water can be found at select stores (like Whole Foods) or you can purchase it direct from their website. A case of 12 bottles, regardless of type, costs $18, or $1.50 per bottle. Alternatively, you can subscribe for $16 per case, which brings the price down to $1.33 per bottle. Shipping costs $3 per case, or is free with the purchase of three or more cases.
This water is certainly a luxury item, but the fact that I FINALLY found a water I loved means that I have a shipment heading to my house as I type!
