What do you guys like?

I've recently started drinking Fiji water, and I rather like the taste.

I can still never get enough V8 or tomato juice either.

Carbonated yogurt drinks - haven't heard of that. I'm assuming it's basically a lassi or smoothie with carbonated water?

I'm not too big on carbonation outside of sodas, and beer of course. I'm a 'sin gas' person in Europe

Like yoghurt drink with carbonation. Jay Leno made fun of it on the eve to the Iraq war, as a sign of how "weird" those foreigners are ("most popular soda in Iraq")
- daft old git. Love the stuff.

I only use bottled water for convenience if I'm going somewhere, so usually I drink the Costco stuff. At home, I have a Brita filter on the tap that puts out very clean water, without the plasticy taste that bottled water almost always has.

Although some find it pretentious, I tend to drink mineral water when given the choice. In addition to V8 and tomato, which you mentioned, I like carrot juice a lot.

Is Fiji water good? I've always heard that it was worse than tap water. Worse as in unclean or leaded or something. Not that it stops me from drinking it. Any truth to that urban legend?

I'm usually drinking Sparkletts from a dispenser, but I agree with you re Fiji water. I also like Evian and Vittel, but that be largely an emotional reaction to the fact that those were what I'd usually drink when bumming through Europe.

Definitely doesn't seem unclean - more the opposite, I'd say. It's a very "soft" water, so somebody who prefers a more minerally taste might find it really bland.
