    except water's good for you, it flushes out your body, vitamin c just passes thru...
    Actually, drinking more water than you need is bad for you. It "flushes" out all the stuff you need. Thins out your blood, and can cause a host of problems. Basically, the point is this, who gives a crap. The argument that more vitamin C is wasteful is dumb. It doesn't hurt anything. More sodium than you need is actually HARMFUL, but you don't see anyone pointing out that you shouldn't drink too much Gatorade. Stop nitpicking, fool!

    I just thought they might have wanted to say 70 lemons on the front. Good marketing Ploy.

    Also I really didnt dig the CC Lemon. I dont know why, maybe too much lemon?

    If you piss out the remaining Vitamin C, then it ends up in the ocean, and, through the water cycle, it ends up back in the drinking water. Then people drink the water and prevent scurvy. So actually, drinking that much Vitamin C is not only not stupid, it's actually being a good world citizen.

    Yeah but then we can't have proper pirates shouting "Avast ye scurvy lads!" because it won't make sense anymore... think of the pirates!

    Am i the only one who thinks vitamin water doesnt taste good?
    I think it tastes like an old, oxidized-tasting fruit punch that was sitting in the back of your fridge unnoticed past its due date like months with its lid open.

    I think it tastes like water which has been left in your fridge in an open container for 3 days.

    I would rather have water, or a coke.

    Eh. The vitamin content in it is ridiculous. 25% DRV of ascorbic acid and 10% zinc doesn't exactly cut the mustard enough for it to be called "Vitamin Water".

    I do have to admit though, drinking that foul tasting shit really perks me up. I'd attribute that to the ionized water rather than the vitamins, but that's pseudo science bullshit as well. Maybe I was just dehydrated when I tried it. I dunno.

    Get yourself some regular drinking water and a pound of ascorbic acid for 15 bucks. You can make 250,000 bottles of vitamin water with that, and not have all the bad crap in it.

    I liked the white powerade more than any vitamin water, but I've only seen it a few times. Vitamin water is okay. Its a bit too sweet for my tastes. I end up watering it down if I drink it.

    I used to think it was a well-packaged scam...

    I've been told that I'm a well packaged scam...

    Pocari Sweat is awesome, whatever it is. I would kill for some Suntory Apple Juice ("juice") here.

    I love the taste and drink it daily.
