Of their Cherrymint Water, Metromint says on their website, "We combine pure water, cherry essence, and real mint for this subtly sweet beverage. Take one sip and you'd swear you were in an orchard- that's how fresh and juicy Cherrymint tastes."
Well, thanks to the PR company I was able to experience if this was true for myself, and I'll say I came away with mixed feelings about this Cherrymint water. On the one hand, the crisp, clear & very refreshing taste of mint water, is as usual, absolutely delightful. As with the Metromint Peppermint and Lemonmint waters, there is just the right amount of light minty taste to enhance the water. But as for the cherry, while you can definitely SMELL the cherry essence, it's taste is non-existent. So, this "cherrymint" water tastes like plain, minty (no trace of sweetness), water. My description be more like, "smell the cherry, taste the mint."
Metromint Cherrymint Water provides no calories, and the ingredients are, purified water, mint, cherry essence. As I mentioned before, I received samples to review, but this cost $1.40 for a 20 ounce bottle at my local grocery store.
I'm not sure if I would buy this variety again, because although I really did like it, just the smell of cherries alone is not enough for me ... I expect to actually get a taste of it. What do you think? Have you tried this variety before? Do you like "minty" waters?
