This New Sparkling Water Tastes Like Peach Gummies—and I Can't Stop Drinking It
This is Obsessed: my weekly column devoted to sharing all the things I'm loving right now—from unique food and gift ideas to travel destinations and beauty products—plus some tips and tricks for living your best life.
I'm a sparkling water connoisseur. I don't say that lightly—once, in a blind taste test, I correctly identified the name brand and flavor of water I was tasting because my spidey senses were tingling. I wish I could apply my sparkling water prowess to other areas of my life, but I'll take what I can get. All that to say, I love sparkling water and I'm usually a loyalist to certain brands, but there's a new brand on the block and it's quickly becoming my favorite: AHA.
There are eight varieties (all of which have two flavor combos). They are: Lime and Watermelon; Strawberry and Cucumber; Orange and Grapefruit; Apple and Ginger; Blueberry and Pomegranate; Peach and Honey; Citrus and Green Tea; and Black Cherry and Coffee. The latter two flavors each have 30 mg of caffeine, if that's your thing.
All of the flavors are pretty tasty, but I definitely have a few favorites. I love the Blueberry and Pomegranate (it reminds me of Fun Dip, but in a good way), Orange and Grapefruit (most similar to my beloved Perrier Grapefruit) and the Peach and Honey (this one is juicy, fruity and tastes like candy Peach O's).
Each flavor of AHA sparkling water comes in a 12-ounce can and is totally free of calories, sodium, sugar and carbs, and they get their fruity taste from natural flavors. Each 8-pack case is priced at $3.38 at Walmart, but may vary by store.
AHA just launched this week, and I've already gone through two cases of the Peach and Honey flavor. I may pick up a case of the Strawberry-Cucumber or Apple-Ginger for cocktails this weekend (how good would the Strawberry-Cucumber be with gin and the Apple-Ginger with whiskey?).
It's safe to say I'm obsessed. Want to try 'em for yourself? You can snag these at grocery stores nationwide (you can find store locations near you here).
