VitaminWater now has three lines out: the sugary Original, VitaminWater 10 with 25 calories per bottle, and now VitaminWater Zero, which has no calories. Actually VitaminWater Zero is to replace VitaminWater 10, and since I had already reviewed VitaminWater 10 Multi-V Lemonade, I decided to try the same Lemonade flavor of VitaminWater Zero.
After a hard cycling workout, I was fully ready to enjoy the beverage. The flavor of this flavored water is pleasingly refreshing. The label says "naturally sweetened" but I would have added "lightly" somewhere in there for accuracy's sake.
The taste is more like more like water with a strong lemon presence and a hint of sweetness - not like the typical sweet lemonades you're probably used to. This flavor is definitely a little different, and I think you'll either like it or hate it - and I think I liked it! I don't think I could drink more than one bottle at a time though, because it does have quite the tart taste.
This 0 calorie beverage is sweetened with rebiana (stevia extract), and I couldn't detect anything but a natural taste. A few of the stevia sweetened beverages that I've tried had a nasty after taste.
VitaminWater Zero Naturally Sweetened Lemonade Flavored Water also provides 100% of the daily value for vitamin C, 40% for vitamins B3, B6, B12, and B5, 10% for vitamins A and E and zinc. I picked up a 2 ounce bottle for $1.25 and I really did like it. I enjoyed the fact that it was lightly sweetened, and it made me take my time drinking this. I will be putting many more of these in my shopping cart in the weeks/months to come!
