Infused Waters

Since we originally tasted O Water several years ago, the line repositioned itself from a flavored energy drink with names like Energize (Strawberry), Vitalize (Peach Mango) and Replenish (Lemon Lime) to a better-for-you sports drink. Although O Water’s infused flavors contain some sugar, they use a restrained hand. They’re just a tad sweet, doing justice to the essence of the fruits without losing the simplicity of water and venturing into sports drinks or juiceland.

With just 35 calories and 9 grams of sugar in 8 ounces, O Infused Water is much more calorically sensible, while still offering a nice dose of vitamins, minerals and electrolytes. Each 17-ounce bottle provides a quarter of the daily recommended value of magnesium, 200 milligrams of potassium and 21% daily value of zinc. Another addition is rosemary extract, which adds a touch of complexity to the fruit-flavored combinations. Like the unsweetened line, these infused waters provide the benefit of electrolytes.

The seven fruit flavors include:

  • Black Raspberry Infused O Water. This flavor shares some of the qualities of the Wild Berries unsweetened O water, but with a touch of cane sugar, its berry flavor is milder and more appealing than the intense unsweetened version.
  • Blueberry Infused O Water. We enjoyed the blueberry better than the black raspberry. Something about blueberries makes us think they’re attractive when they’re sweet, which means that the addition of cane sugar is a smart choice. Very enjoyable beverage.
  • Coconut Infused O Water. This tastes like other coconut waters we’ve had, but with slightly more coconut flavor, and an especially strong scent. It makes us imagine we have broken open a coconut and are drinking the juice straight from the shell. It’s a nice change from the more traditional fruit flavors.
  • Lemon Lime Infused O Water. The unsweetened Lemon & Lime is heavier on the lemon. Here, the lime is accentuated. The choice is yours.
  • Peach Mango Infused O Water. The peach flavor hits you first, before blending into a mellow mango backdrop. This simple, slightly sweet combination won us over; we wanted to keep sipping on this all day. One might only imagine what it would taste like unsweetened, although that mango flavor may be easier to translate in a sweet form.
  • Pineapple Orange Banana Infused O Water. Another standout in this line of infused waters, for us one of the top flavors in the line. We’ve had sickeningly sweet versions of this tri-fruit combination in juice form, which is why it is so refreshing and especially delicious when just lightly sweetened in the form of flavored water.
  Pineapple Orange Banana O Water
Perhaps the best flavor in the line, POB or Pineapple Orange Banana infused O Water.
  • Strawberry Pomegranate Infused O Water. A strawberry aroma floods the olfactory senses as soon as the bottle is opened, while the pomegranate presence lends tartness to the drink. It’s a winning combination that is sure to please many taste buds.

With or without sweetness, get ready to hydrate!
