  • No sodium but dry mouth? Skeptical of Hint's claims.

    Overall Experience:

    My wife is one of those folks who grew up drinking everything BUT water, so the idea of just drinking water with no flavoring is unpalatable to her. She found Hint Water and bought a few bottles for both of us to try. She didn't like the flavor profile and was done after one bottle ("too much like plain water," she said). I enjoyed the first bottle (Watermelon, specifically) and gave it a couple more chances.

    While it lives up to its name (there’s just a hint of fruit flavoring, enough to give it some flavor without being overpowering), I’ve discovered that it makes my mouth ridiculously dry, the same as when I drink purified water that has sodium bicarbonate in it. It claims to have no sodium and no such electrolyte additives, but I’ve now tried three more flavors over the course of a week and all three have had the same dry mouth effect. After drinking a glass of my typical double-filtered tap water, the dry mouth issue goes away.

    This leaves me thinking that if Hint Water was just water and fruit essences with no sweeteners or sodium, there shouldn’t be any dry mouth issues. This makes me wonder if someone over at Hint Water isn’t telling the full story. If I need flavored water, I think I'd rather go back to just using an infuser bottle and deal with the natural fructose from the bits of fresh fruit used.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

  • What's less than a "hint?"

    Overall Experience:

    I'm a fan of "experimental" beverages. Why buy Coke, Pepsi, or Lipton Ice Tea when you can try: Pepsi Blue, Clear Pepsi, Sprite Remix, Orbit, DNL, or New York Seltzer. What's less than a "hint." Smudge? Dash? GHOST. That's better, GHOST. Almost felt like taking it to the lab to see if there was anything else but water in there. Three stars because it's water. Water's not bad.

  • Not so natural

    Overall Experience:

    Okay, redefining the word "natural" doesn't make it so. Fruit in its natural state contains natural sugars and calories, like it or not. Take for example blackberries, there are 65 calories and 7 grams of sugar in a cup of blackberries. In order to remove those calories you have to remove the sugar, in order to remove the sugar you have to process the berries. It says right on the bottle "Contains No Juice." If there is no juice to flavor this product, there are no sugars to sweeten it, then whatever is used to flavor it can't be natural, because it's processed.

    I don't know if you all know this or not, but natural sugars and calories aren't the enemies, it's when they are consumed in excess that they become poison. 3 or 4 blackberries muddled with a leaf or two of mint in 16oz of filtered water contains 6 calories, is naturally sweet and contains vitamins that our bodies need to survive.

    Yes, I have tried this product, apple and the blackberry, and didn't care for it. The apple tasted like someone dropped a green apple JollyRancher into ten gallons of water and the blackberry tasted nothing like blackberries. I also don't like the price and the fact that we are introducing even more single-use plastic into the environment, already seeing these bottles blowing around in parking lots and laying in ditches.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

  • Not too bad…

    Overall Experience:

    Just picked up a bottle of the crisp apple hint water. Overall not bad, especially as an alternative to tasteless, boring plain water with no sugar or sodium. As the name says, there is just a 'hint' of flavor to the drink and that seemed to be just enough flavor for my mouth/taste buds to notice and like, after I got used to the less sugary flavor (I usually drink soda mixed half and half with water, so my mouth was used to that level of sweetness).

    I am normally NOT a straight water drinker because I either hate the taste of plain water, or it doesn't even have a taste(LOL), but I want to be healthier and this Hint Water seemed better than the other flavored waters/drinks that have sugar, fructose and sodium, etc. in them. I would like to try a few of the other flavors, but the store I bought the one I got this evening, only had maybe 3 flavors, besides the crisp apple and they were not to my interest. Considering how picky I am, this stuff isn't too bad at all, although I'll have to get a bit more used to the lack of sugar overload.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

  • Great

    Overall Experience:

    I moved from "healthy" juices and diet sodas to Hint Water. I've noticed a difference in how good my body feels moving away from sugars and artificial sweeteners. Hint is exactly as it's name says, just a "hint" of flavor. So if you're looking for something sweet, this is not it. If you're looking to be healthy but are bored with chugging plain water, Hint and Hint Fizz are the way to go.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

  • No Flavor

    Overall Experience:

    I was very excited to try Hint as I've stopped drinking sodas sugar or sugar free. I found the taste to be very unsatisfactory the 'flavors' are almost undetectable. Very disappointed, I really hoped it would be an alternative to plain water but I found it to be much too mild for my taste and way over priced. I like that there is no added sugar or artificial sweeteners but there is none in plain water and Hint taste like plain water to me, at least the 5 flavors I've tried.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

  • Hydrating

    Overall Experience:

    My first experience was on a hot summer day, grabbing a bottle of Blackberry Hint at Starbucks. That was all it took and I was hooked! I've been ordering cases, adding a variety of flavor's from their website monthly.

    One year later, I'm always hydrated, drinking at least four 16oz bottles a day and have lost 17 pounds.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
