Minty Fresh: Metromint Water

I like mint. And I like water. So the two of them together seems to be an easy sell. At least that’s what I thought when we agreed to try and review Metromint, a pure water infused with real mint and other natural flavors. But I’m kind of on the fence about this one. Here’s why…

First, the pros. Metromint is all natural, contains no sugar, no preservatives and no sweeteners. Therefore, it also has zero calories but is still far more appealing than plain water. The purified water goes through reverse osmosis (so the good stuff stays in and the not-so-good stuff comes out), and the pesticide-free mint its flavored with is grown in Washington State’s Yakima Valley—which just sounds lovely, right? It’s also SUPER refreshing. On a hot day, it actually makes you feel cooler it’s so minty fresh. Oh, and there are lots of fun flavors, including Peppermint, Spearmint, Lemonmint, Orangemint, Chocolatemint and Goodberrymint.

So what’s not to like? Well, here are the cons: it’s like really, really minty. Which can be awesome if you adore mint, but for me, I thought it was a touch overpowering. And, to be honest, I just didn’t dig the fruit-mint flavors. Orangemint and Lemonmint where probably my favorites, but I didn’t finish the bottle. Goodberrymint was my least favorite of the whole bunch—kind of reminded me of those flouride trays you’d get at the dentist. I had flashbacks. (Although maybe that’s more of my childhood dentist’s fault than Metromint’s.)

I’m on the fence about Chocolatemint. I am a huge fan of all things mint-chocolate, and I definitely liked the flavor. It’s like a York Peppermint Pattie in a drink. But it’s kind of weird to drink it. So I only had a few sips. But maybe that’s just me.

Anyone else tried Metromint? Love it? Dislike it? The company has won all kinds of awards so maybe I’m just a minty weirdo! —Jenn

    I was handed that at the finish line of cross country race once and it was the worst! It’s like someone gave me a bottle of mouth wash to drink up. I felt bad because the person who got it for me had good intentions, thinking it would cool me off.

    I LOVE Mint Water. I’m not a big fan of the other flavors, I prefer just the peppermint or spearmint. It’s so cool and refreshing! I don’t think it’s too much mint, it’s just about right.

    I got addicted to these a few years ago! I ADORE the chocolate mint one (although I admit it does take a bit to get used to) and after that I really like the peppermint.

  4. Debbie says:

    I might like the peppermint but I don’t usually even take a drink of water when I have spearmint gum in my mouth. I’ll have to try them if I can find them in my store.

  5. Courtney says:

    Hmmm. I think I’ll just stick to putting fresh mint in my water. It seems like a safer bet!

  6. Samantha says:

    I tried the Chocolatemint today and I really liked it. I also love all things mint chocolate though. I will definitely buy it again.

  7. This is one of my favorite bottled waters. Mint is a natural digestive. I drink this water when I’ve had a stressful day and my tummy is upset. It always helps calm my tummy.

    Tried the cherry mint cause it was on sale. It was like drinking mouthwash. So gross.

    I’ve tried and loved the spearmint and peppermint by Metromint. To make it last longer, I just poured some Metromint into plain water, which you might prefer since you don’t like it overpowering!

  10. I love love love metromint! I also do a lot of mint and fruit in my water bottle with a fuser. I’m also a mint fanatic!
