Hint Water {Review}

In full disclosure, I LOVE WATER! It is my favorite drink. Lame? Maybe but it’s true. I guzzle water all day and never feel like I have over done it. My body seems to get dehydrated fairly easily and when it does I get crazy headaches that sideline me. No need for that junk! Bring on the H2O!

Hint water was kind enough to send my an amazing assortment of their refreshing flavored waters and in return, I am letting all of you know what I think!

I was so excited when Hint offered to send some of their flavors for me to try and as soon as the box arrived I tore into it!

Look at those cute little mustaches…love!

It’s been hot as hell (which I don’t mind at all!) over the past fews week and I’ve been finding myself drinking even more than usual. It was nice to have an assortment of flavors in the house to chose from.

hint fizz

The first new-to-me Hint I tried was the grapefruit fizz. I love all things grapefruit and this did not disappoint! I was so eager to try it I didn’t even put it in the fridge first. Warm but delicious!

As I was drinking down the delicious fizz I looked through the other flavors.

And that’s not all…

ALL.THE.HINT.WATER!

It was exciting to see that I had only tried two of the flavors in the past so there were plenty new to me flavors to try out. And that I did. I drank Hint all over the place.

On the beach was probably my favorite way to enjoy this stuff but I loved it on my walk to work and at work as well.

And of course, I guzzled Hint water during my at home workouts.

So needless to say I drank my way through 12 flavors of Hint water in no time at all. So what did I think? Short story – LOVED them. More detailed story –

Amazing flavors:

  • Watermelon
  • Blood Orange
  • Mango Grapefruit
  • Blackberry
  • Strawberry Kiwi
  • Grapefruit Fizz

Really good flavors:

  • Peach (surprising because I tend to not really like peach flavored things)
  • Pomegranate
  • Raspberry
  • Blackberry Fizz
  • Watermelon Fizz

Not my thing:

  • Crisp Apple

The only flavor that wasn’t really my thing was the crisp apple. I drank a little too much Bacardi Apple in college and this apple Hint tasted similar enough to bring back a few too many hazy memories.

I honestly didn’t think I would love almost all of the flavors. Generally, I don’t go for flavored waters because the flavor is either too strong or too sweet and chemically tasting. This wasn’t the case with any of the Hint waters. Each had the perfect little hint of flavor (<— sorry, had to make the bad joke).

I have been trying to make sure to drink water first every morning before my first (of sometimes many) cup of coffee and having a refreshing bottle of Hint to throw in my work bag or my purse has been perfect. Nothing wrong with starting the day off on the right foot.

I’ll definitely be adding Hint water to my regular grocery list. I am addicted.

Question:

What are your thoughts on flavored water? Do you have a favorite?

Disclaimer: I was sent the water to try but was not paid to provide my opinion. All opinions are always my own.

Friday Favorites – 6.27

It’s here…Friday! Actually Wednesday, Thursday and today have all felt like Friday to me due to my weird week. This morning started out a little differently than I thought it would. I woke up SO SORE form yesterday’s new-to-me workout. I wanted to spin or run but I’m going to put it off until this afternoon. Hopefully I can convince SL to do a little run with me 🙂

For breakfast, I tried something new and I am instantly obsessed.

whipped chia pudding

Whipped Chia Pudding! I got this idea from Sarah’s recent post. I love the idea of chia pudding but I can always handle the weird texture.  I will post this recipe soon! It’s may become a new summer staple in my life. I paired my whipped chia pudding with a Southern Pecan coffee in an Eeyore mug that is NOT MINE…it’s SLs!

So the whipped chia pudding is definitely a favorite this week…and here are a few more:

I have been loving this stuff lately. I first tried it at the end of the Twin Lobster Half Marathon but guzzled it so quickly that I didn’t get to fully enjoy it. Since then, I have tried both the watermelon and blackberry flavors and LOVE LOVED them both. I can’t wait to try all of the other flavors!

Scenic Runs

scenic runs

I need a little motivation when running, especially when I’m on solo runs. Running near my house is not scenic so I try to make the short drive to the next town over and run along the ocean. It’s so much easier to push through a 5-mile when when you are caught up gazing out into the Atlantic Ocean.

So there they are, the things I’ve been loving this week. Now its off to enjoy my day off and get ready for the weekend! SL turns the big 3-0 this weekend and the weather is looking great so lots of outdoor activities are planning!

Have a great weekend!
