I love you little bubbles that pop in my mouth. I think I am addicted to you. I cannot go a day without you. If you see my desk at work, there are 2 x 1.25L bottles on the desk and about 3 x 1L-2L bottles in my bin. I do not know what it is that keeps me buying them ….perhaps because I like champagne. Maybe it’s because I have paid for it? I am unaware of any health risks with my addiction. All I know is that I drink the daily recommended water intake of 2L a day – why would it matter if 1.5L of that has little bubbles in it?? Does it???
I find when we go out for a meal, if I order sparkling I will drink it over still. I do believe it’s because I paid for it. Though at work – we do pay for the water cooler – is that why I drink that too? Is it because our tap water at home tastes like chlorine?? When we go to Cairns I absolutely looooove the water up there. it is so sweet….and chemical free, thanks to my step mum’s water filter purifier thingamy that cost LOTS of money. again – water that costs money….i see a reoccurring theme here.
The only down side to my drinking mineral water is the plastic bottle use. I have major guilt factor with this. I always put them in the recycling bin but that isn’t enough. I think I’ll just keep buying, just for a while longer…….
I find that the Italian sparklings have smaller bubbles which I prefer, but they don’t retain their fizz as well as Aussie ones – ‘home brand’ that I often buy at work – unfortunately has larger bubbles, but lasts nearly all day on my desk – and Home brand at woolies is 83 cents for 2L!– compared to say Perrier or Pellegrino that is about triple the price and a third of the size… though the glass bottles are better recyclers…
I find that coles own brand isn’t to my liking. My choice today is Schweppes Natural mineral water – which isn’t too bad.
So I guess my addiction is not too bad for me…just a little bad for the environment….perhaps I should look into a soda stream (like I really need another bloody kitchen appliance tho!).
