*"I hope they never find out that lightning has a lot of vitamins in it, because do you hide from it or not?"—Jack Handey*

**Glacéau vitaminwater10** quite simply is the best choice in its category: it's **yummy**, **not filling**, and just about as **cheap** as normal water that rains from the sky or gurgles from the ground (cheaper, in fact, than the imported waters which actually taste interesting).

The fact it's supposed to be **healthy** is just icing on the cake (and who doesn't like cake).

I came across it entirely by accident one day in the grocery store, while on my lunch break. Like on most lunch breaks, I thought to myself, "what the heck am I going to eat today? I'm not even hungry", and concluded I should buy a snack and a drink just to tide me over until the end of the day. (The snack was some yuppie candy bar with protein and vitamins—but that's a different soap opera.)

At first I was turned off by the healthy-sounding label. On the one hand, I'm naturally suspicious of anything which purports to be healthy; and on the other hand, I'm not averse to stuffing my pie hole with junk food occasionally.

I compared it with everything else down the drink aisle; ruled out the contenders for being either too expensive, too cloying (e.g. colas, other carbonated beverages), or too boring (i.e. store-brand water); and decided to try it.

I'll keep buying this stuff anytime I'm thirsty and want something cheap with some flavor. If I get healthier for drinking it, that's ok too, I guess.

*(It seems they doubled the number of flavors since folks started reviewing it.)*

As a fan of the original Vitamin Water, I was excited to try **Glaceau Vitaminwater 10**. The prospect of cutting back on my calories while still enjoying the great flavor of Vitaminwater made me eager to see how it would stack up.

I was highly disappointed.

First of all, I should explain that Vitaminwater 10 is a slight misnomer. Sure, there are only 10 calories per serving - but there are 2 and a half servings in each bottle. Who doesn't finish a bottle of Vitaminwater in one sitting? Still, at only 25 calories in the whole drink, you're saving 100 calories from the regular version. Not bad.

The taste, however, *was* pretty bad. It's supposedly sweetened with natural sweeteners which many believe to be better for you, but it didn't taste like what I thought natural sweetness should be like! In fact, I couldn't really get past the artificially sweet taste. I love sweet beverages, but not sweetness that tastes like this.

Plus, they don't have nearly as many flavors as the original Vitaminwater.

I love the concept of **Vitaminwater 10**, but I think I'll have to go back to drinking the high calorie version, instead. I may try it again some time down the road, but this drink really didn't meet my expectations. If you are used to drinking low-cal beverages and can handle an "artificial" taste, you'll probably like this. Otherwise, steer clear - there are better low-cal drinks on the market!

Product ingredients have changed and I hate it.

Comments about Glaceau - Vitamin Water 10:

I was a frequent buyer of vitamin water. Had a couple of favorite flavors and used it for years to hydrate me while I worked. Recently bought a bottle and the minute I took a drink I knew something was different. Sure enough I compared an old bottle to the new one and found out that they have added stevia extract to all the formulas. I called the company and was told they were changing the formula in all the flavors. It used to be refreshing, but now is way too sweet and not refreshing at all. I have stopped buying it completely. While Stevia extract might be considered a natural product it is way sweeter than sugar and leaves an after taste like artificial sweetners. I won't buy it anymore unless they go back to the old formula.

Good drink to buy when on a diet.

Comments about Glaceau - Vitamin Water 10:

Highly recommended for the people that have a sweet tooth for sweetened drinks, but don't want to drink diet fizzy fountain drinks, or plain water. Glaceau Vitamin Water offers its consumers a variety of different flavored drinks to choose from. The good thing about this Glaceau Vitamin Water is that you can find this product in almost all of your favorite stores at a cheap price.

Vitamin Water 10 is light and refreshing.

By 

from Lincoln, NE

Comments about Glaceau - Vitamin Water 10:

Low calories and a light fruity taste is what draws me to this drink. The vitamins are a great benefit for my busy days when I can't always eat the way we should. Vitamin Water is the perfect drink for the hot summer days.

Not too bad, but...

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about Glaceau - Vitamin Water 10:

I guess it's not so bad... It's kinda like the original, but with that "fake sweetener" bitter aftertaste.  Which is more than I can say for the difference between Coke and Diet Coke... It's tolerable.

Absolutely love Glaceau Vitamin Water 10

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Glaceau - Vitamin Water 10:

The Glaceau Vitamin Water 10 is definitely one of the best drinks that are low in calorie and taste really good.  Also has some nutitional value rather than just drinking other powdered water enhancers that have no calories but have nothing beneficial either.  I love how Vitamin Water came out with this lower calorie version to their original Vitamin Water.  This is a great alternative for people who want to get their liquids in but hate water and want a beverage that tastes good and is healthy.  I try not to drink my calories so this works great for me.  I even dilute it a little more with some extra water because it is a little sweet but that is just for my taste because I try not to use artificial sweeteners or sugar.  Vitamin Water 10 is great for the gym as well if you are looking for an alternative to water but do not want a gatorade that is high in calories.  The downfall would be Vitamin Water 10 is picy compared to generic low calorie beverages.

Vitamin Water 10 is the best tasting low cal drink!

By 

from Hollywood, FL

Comments about Glaceau - Vitamin Water 10:

I love Glaceau Vitamin Water 10! It is the best low calorie drink out there. There a wide variety of awesome flavors to choose from and Vitamin Water 10 is naturally sweetened with Pure Via sweetener! What a great combination. Vitamin Water is now available at most grocery stores and pharmacies so go get a bottle and check it out!

Low calorie pick me up

By 

from East Lansing, MI

Comments about Glaceau - Vitamin Water 10:

This stuff is great.  I get constipated with other low calorie food items.  But Vitamin Water 10 has Stevia in it.  This is a naturally made sweetner.  It doesn't constipate me!  And I simply adore it for being this way.  I would also like to point out that it has lots of B-vitamins.  This is great for a vegetarian such as myself!

I wish there were more flavors available in Vitamin Water 10.

By 

from Germantown, TN

Comments about Glaceau - Vitamin Water 10:

I love Vitamin Water 10, but wish there were more flavors available, especially the strawberry kiwi.  Please make more flavors for those of us who love getting this 10 calorie treat plus vitamins.  It is delicious and makes me consume more water, plus it satisfies my sweet tooth cravings, two "good for you" points in one bottle.
