    San Pellegrino or Perrier. Bulk sizes from Costco make it more economical.

    Def. Make your own.

    A machine will pay for itself in weeks.

    Around here, the generic store brand is not only cheaper, it is fizziest.

    There are only 2 kinds of carbonated water. Perrier and all the brands that imitate Perrier

    A client offered me a flavored la chroc one time and I said no thank you. He says I don't blame you it taste like someone ate a peach and burped into the can.

    nothing. @micpoc doesn't joke around, and he doesn't suffer fools gladly.

    I don't drink much of it, but there is so much good mineral water in Europe I wouldn't know where to start.

    San Pellegrino is always good. Henniez in Switzerland is also a classic. There's also a famous Georgian mineral water that's really nice, but I can't quite remember the name (Borzhumi or something like that...).

    My favorite is Gerolsteiner, but I get a bottle of Pellegrino from time to time. It tastes like dirt smells, and there's something appealing about that, as a change of pace.

    My HS science teacher would get angry if we used the word dirt. "It's SOIL, not dirt, SOIL! It's a nutrient dense, life-giving substance, the most organic substrate imaginable!" He was otherwise a quiet guy and it was kind of shocking given that he never seemed to show that much passion for anything else, ever.

    Lol. But all dirt is not soil, methinks. I guess I assume that soil has to have a significant admixture of organic matter, the better to nurture plants. But I could be wrong.

    ..........

    Or not. Here's the def: "The top layer of the earth's surface in which plants can grow, consisting of rock and mineral particles mixed with decayed organic matter and having the capability of retaining water."

    Best is a matter of preference and availability. My wife and I like Saratoga Sparkling, the real deal from Sweet Water Spring in Saratoga Springs, NY. It’s priced and marketed as a boutique brand at Whole Foods and a few other upscale food stores. I’ve never seen it outside of NY but the label has deposit values for ten states including Hawaii. Which is odd. We try to buy local, especially when we travel.
