While searching for something to drink inside a gas station convenience store, I noticed this odd looking bottle which I first thought was just plain mineral water.
Upon closer inspection, I discovered that it’s a product called Nature’s Spring Flavored Water. My curiosity got the better of me and so I purchased it.
At first, I wanted to buy the Apple flavored one but I finally decided on the Honeydew. The drink is actually nice, although the flavor of the “melon” is really strong. Another observation is that it’s really sweet, so it’s not a good beverage if you’re thirsty. (Drink water instead!)
I looked at the nutrition facts on the label and it says that a 350ml bottle has 90 calories. Moreover, the ingredients say that it has sugar, citric acid, potassium sorbate, sodium citrate and artificial flavorings.
Hmmm. The product is a bit misleading in my opinion. It’s not flavored water at all but more of like a “clear artificial juice”.
How about you? Have you tried drinking this? What do you think about it?
I am officially curious!
This just shows how important a product name is in marketing strategies. 😛
I prefer Summit Zero Cal, formerly Summit Clear carbonated flavored water.

Can you give me the specific name of the convenience store where can I buy that flavored water coz I would like to try it also, all flavors of nature’s spring..Can’t find it in any store..please tell where can I buy that product..Thanks so much..:)
I was recently served an apple flavored by my son after coming from a get together. And I asked for more. The next day, he stocked the ref with a ton in several flavors – grape, apple, melon. It’s not available in SM near where we live, but in a convenience store. I have to say, I like all the flavors. It does not leave much aftertaste unlike those other colored artificial juices. So I think it can take the place of water, (which I drink once in while, after being used to Perrier carbonated water.) With regards the calories and the sugar, no problem They said cholesterol is bad and now several studies have shown it has no correlation whatsoever with heart disease. And there are old folks out there in their 90s eating bacon everyday. So now, I resumed my intake of lechon and bacon, cakes and ice cream. Everybody dies, sooner or later. No point not enjoying something as simple, inexpensive, and pleasant as this Nature’s Spring. But that’s just me.
Does the company offer franchise flavored water? and how much ?
