Box or Glass?


I was walking through the Whole Foods and I saw something interesting...

Boxed Water. 16.9 ounces. 500 mL, if you're into metric.

"Humph," was  my first response. But I did stop and peruse.

I am a bit turned off by the whole generic look of it.

What's up with the "hello" in cursive on the side?

What's up with that? How generic is that? Why couldn't they put a picture on the side?

Sigh. (Yes, they are high class questions. Some people in the world don't have clean drinking water, so... yes, high class questions).

I bought it. 10 boxed waters for $10. No, I just bought one carton. I spent a dollar. I wanted to know what "boxed water" tasted like.

It looked well enough when I poured it into a glass.
It's clear. Clear drinking water.

And it tasted great. Boxed water tastes great. With no aftertaste. Glory.

But I am a lover of water in glass.

And I will stay that way.

It's more sophisticated. A tad bit more expensive... but I love it.

Oh, unless I'm going camping or hiking or something. The boxed water seems like it would pack up pretty well. And I could probably toss the empty container off a cliff. That would lighten my load wouldn't it? Hmm...

Good thing I'm not a camper. I'll get fined for littering!

Oh well, it was worth a try.
