Just finished dinner and had to take my meds…reached for a bottle of a new product I found at my local super market today…Nestle pure life splash…OMG!!!!!…This stuff is amazing…I know it is not the same as drinking pure water…BUT…for people looking for something with zero carbs that is mostly water and taste good…all I have to say is Jackpot!!!!…that being said always drink more pure water than anything else…

well I bought mine out of the cooler case by the register…only bought one bottle, but I am assuming the larger packs will be with the flavored waters…

Hi Jib Jab
Sounds wonderful. As long as one doesn't become hooked on them and forgo water. Nothing can replace a good glass of water. VL

having a hard time balancing this with your comments earlier about diet soda … is this really all that different because it is not carbonated?
Looks to me like flavored water with sodium and sucralose added to it. Where is the nutritional value?

True,,but I also admitted to drinking an occasional diet soda…and I did tell people this is not pure water..not every one feels the same way about diets drinks…I figured someone might want to try this..and I did buy only one bottle to try it…and probably wont buy another for quite some time…but I will buy another..I also drink tons of lacroix…which is nothing but flavored selter water..also zero carbs…the lacroix is how I kicked the soda habit…and that has zero nutritional value…add to this that the lack of nutrients is just one of the bad qualities soda has..I doubt if you can use a pure life splash to remove the paint from your car..

I am a reformed soda addict. I used to drink at least two "Super Big Gulp" (44 oz). Dr. Peppers a day. the first thing I did after diagnosis was switch to diet soda. 165 pounds later I now drink maybe 2 -2 oz. cans of Coke Zero a week (I also use aspartame in my coffee) … so I'm no angel ;)

I kicked my soda habit about a year before I was diagnosed..switched over to the seltzer..but if I was to be completely honest…I would have to say I suspected I was a diabetic at that point…and I don't do denial…at least not well…which is what made me give up the soda and most sweets when I did…kind of treating the diabetes I kind of knew I had without having to actually hear that I had it..yeah I am a complicated chick..

I gave up diet soda as soon as I was diagnosed, on advice of my physician. Since I drink nothing but water, I would like to occasionally drink something with some flavor to it. I think I might give it a try. Thanks.
