what is the fucking point
I've never met anyone else who feels the same way
i drink litres of it a day. we got it free on tap at work and I bumming love it
There's something else. Salt? Anyway, San pellegrino sparkling is the nicest thing in the world.
cheap and easy way to make classy fizzy juice
cool prank to play on chumps
it's like the smell of a new car on a hot day in liquid form.
and enjoy the king of soft drinks. Better than any ready made fizzy drink on the market.
Not sure about the best though when you got contenders like Old Jamaica Ginger Beer, Ice Tea in its various flavours, Mirinda, Fanta Limon...
and the best thing for shifting a hangover
It's shit with still/tap water; I've tried it when I ran out of fizzy water.
worst thing ever. I remember spending the whole train journey to Rome just shaking the bottle to get it to go flat. I don;t understand anyone who enjoys drinking it.
good to mix with lots of things as people have already said, but also nice to drink straight, especially with some types of food
It is vile. Nothing worse than getting lemonade in a pub and the syrup has run out so you get a big gulp of fizzy water.
and I want to have something to drink with me in case I get thirsty, but don't want something I'll drink immediately and spend the rest of the journey needing a piss, I'll buy sparkling water. I can tolerate it enough to use it for hydration but I don't like it enough to drink loads and loads.
but I'm thinking of doing it more often in future.
it doesn't quench your thirst
i suggest getting two bottles of still water instead
You're missing the crux of the plan.
and don't drink any of either
When I was little sometimes my mum would buy big bottles of sparkling water and we'd use it to make fizzy Ribena. Every now and then I'd take a swig of the sparkling water even though I hated it and it just tastes all gaseous. Drinking it now reminds me of that a bit. I think the nostalgia is the only bit of it I enjoy, I don't really like it otherwise.
I like it a lot, slice of lemon please
honestly, it's so refreshing. love it. not cheap though.
