I'm sitting here drinking the new low-cal VitaminWater, and I just had to write about it. I've always been intrigued by the company's products, but steered clear of the regular flavors because really, 125 calories is just too much to waste on "water." However, when the company came out with their new 10-calorie per serving option, I had to try one. I decided to pick up VitaminWater 10 Multi-V (Lemonade) flavor to try it out, so I stopped by a drugstore where the bottles were on sale at 4 for $5.
I think the little captions on the front of the waters are really cute. This one talks about being multi-everything (multi-talented, multi-millionaire, etc.) and then goes on to talk about how the drink is "multi" in that it is loaded with vitamins and naturally sweetened. I turned the bottle more to see how those nutritional claims held up on the label and found that each bottle (because who's going to drink just 8 ounces) has 25 calories, no fat, 8 grams of sugar, and %RDA values for the following vitamins and minerals as follows: 25% for vitamin A, 100% for vitamin C, 10% for calcium, 25% for vitamins E, B3, B6, B12, and B5, 40% for folic acid, 10% for magnesium, and 25% for zinc. Not too shabby, especially if you prefer to enjoy your vitamins in the form of a pleasant drink instead of wolfing down huge pills.
As for the taste, I was very pleased with the flavor of VitaminWater 10 Multi-V Lemonade. It was light and lemony, sweet but not overpoweringly so. This does contain a stevia extract for a "natural sweetener," and I didn't detect any "off" tastes. It's refreshing, perfect for a hot summer day. I really enjoyed this flavor.
Unfortunately, they didn't agree with me over at Bevnet, so if you've had VitaminWater Multi-V, tell us what you think in the comments!
