Eau So Cool

MetroMint Spearmint Drink

— October 11, 2007 — Unique
Cheers to being cool! MetroMint is an unsweetened, zero-calorie water infused with the refreshing test of real mint. I came across the bottles of retro-print MetroMint at my local health food store and was intrigued. Yes, we've seen all sorts of flavoured waters, from liquid luxury to cucumber flavours, but never had I seen a mint flavour. My eyes darted from peppermint to spearmint. Which to try?

I snagged the neon green dotted silver cylinder marked "Spearmint Water" off the shelf, payed the $1.89 for the half liter, and scurried home. After filling a glass with ice I cracked open the tall skinny bottle.

Eau Wow!

Instantly my nostrils were filled with what I can only describe as the strong scent of spearmint gum. I poured the glass and brought it to my lips. It was bracing myself for intensity. I took a sip, swished it around and was pleasantly surprised at its soothingly mild flavour. In fact, once in my mouth, it didn't taste like anything other than natural water.

When I opened my mouth, however, I sensed it. The inside of my mouth, from gums to tongue was instantly refreshed by the cooling aftertaste. I can honestly say, I am a huge fan!

San Francisco based MetroMint "is an unsweetened beverage with real mint," the bottle reads. "Our mint comes from the Yakima Valley, considered the finest mint growing region in North America."

In addition to peppermint and spearmint, the company has recently launched lemon and orange mint flavours, and are hoping to include even more. They ask site goers for their input and even offer to send "free stuff" to those who share their MetroMint experience. My flavour suggestion? Raspberry Mint!
