PUR water wasn’t content with removing impurities from your water so they decided that they would put some back in…and then charge you for it!
I am talking about PUR Flavor Options. No joke, after they filter your water they add artificial flavors. All over the website are testimonials about how much “water” their kids are drinking now. One even has this to say: “My son asked for flavored water more than juice.”. Great. First, I’m not sure it’s a good thing that kids are loading up on a non-nutritive drink over juice. Now a lot of parents over do the juice, but if it’s something like OJ in moderation, that’s not a bad thing. Anyways, milk is best for kids. Second, and most importantly, if you add artifical stuff, it’s not water. Sorry to burst your bubbles. Third, faking kids out to get them to eat stuff that’s good for them is pretty well accepted to be a bad parenting method (see also Deceptively Delicious for more bad ideas see here for some better ones). Forth, I don’t know what’s in them but don’t you think parents should be a little wary of completely artifical additives with no nutritional value what so ever? It seems from the testimonials that people have trouble with their kids drinking too much pop at home. Hey knuckleheads, I’ve got your solution: don’t buy it. Simple enough. When you or your kids get thirsty and there are only healthy choices around, they’ll choose something healthy. (Side note to knuckleheads: you’re in charge, not your kids).
