Smart Water - I love this stuff!

I have recently discovered Smart Water. I absolutely can't stand Gatorade so I had no idea that it really worked

Wile on vacation I had a little "sinking spell" from walking in the heat. We went into this little grocery store and I decided to try the Smart Water. Within 30 minutes I felt soooooooooooooooooo much better! I'm a believer now.

Has anyone else tried it?

Haven't tried it. I've been drinking Vitamin Water since I gave up the cigs and coffee. How much is a container? I get the 20oz VW at Walmart or Target for a buck. Most stores like Wawa or 7-11 charge $1.39.

Love it!

It's often on sale for $1 at Target. We buy 48 bottles usually. We do not care that people look at us like we're crazy.

Vapor distilled water plus electrolytes (calcium chloride, magnesium chloride and potassium bicarbonite).

I don't understand why Target doesn't keep some in cases. One time I bought 30 or so all different colors. The woman at the checkout (must have been new or trying to impress her manager) says, give me one of each color so I know what needs to be restocked.

Everyone in my line started rubber-necking for another checkout.

No, which is why I LOVE it - it simply tastes like water...no sugar, no flavor!

Sounds like a great way to get elecrolytes when you need them without the radioactive colors and flavors of Gatorade.
