Archer Farms Touch of Starfruit Water Review

Archer Farms Touch of Starfruit WaterAt a recent long distance running race in California, I got to try Hint Pomegranate Tangerine Water and was amazed by how well the "hint" of natural fruit flavoring enhanced the water. The problem was that in my neighborhood outside of California, I could only buy the water by the case or online. While in my local Target store a few weeks later, I saw a collection of similar looking bottles, but it was the Target brand Archer Farms "Touch of Starfruit" Water.

When I unscrewed the cap, the water was fragrant, and it tasted great too. The starfruit essence was definitely present but didn't overwhelm the crispness of the water. It was slightly sweet with just a slight hint of tartness. Even after I drained the bottle of all traces of water, I could still smell the starfruit scent, and I was left with a uniquely designed bottle that I could reuse to store my own filtered tap water before recycling.

I have seen lots of other flavored waters on the market, but many also have artificial flavorings or sweeteners that detract from the "healthiness" of water. The bottle labeling mentions that the water is all natural with 0 calories, no preservatives, and no artificial sweeteners. These claims definitely boost this water above sodas and other sugary drinks.

I paid $1.19 for a 16 ounce bottle at Target, although I recently saw it on sale for $1. Yes, the water from my kitchen is just as satisfying and yet doesn't cost nearly as much. However, the flavoring in this is just right, and I can't think of another way to take in the taste of starfruit without consuming the real thing.

Sometimes I get tired of drinking plain water, so I would definitely buy this again, and I'm looking forward to trying the other flavors. Hopefully, their just as good.
