    Re: Bottled water: this just makes me howl with laughter

    I know, this is crazy.

    But my question is, if they're just bottling tap water, why does it say they aren't making a big profit off of it? I mean, it costs as much as a 20 oz of Pepsi, which probably contains the same water along with sugar and a few other ingredients.

    That is why Coke and Pepsi are buying these companmies. That os why Snapple is not going to be sold. These companies are making money like bankers now make money - off the little guy. Packacing must be half the cost.

    Re: Bottled water: this just makes me howl with laughter

    Dasani and Aquafina are the worst tasting water and "surprise!" they are taken from "public sources", which doesn't seem to make it clear that it is tap water (at least to the undiscerning public).

    Whenever I buy bottled water I try to get something from a " natural source" which probably isn't a ton better, but it does taste a whole lot better and is actually cheaper.

    They're lying, bottled water is immensely profitable.

    Where else would it come from? Do they have a water recipe?

    Is it Shaken or Stirred? Don't want to blow myself up while I'm making it.

    Re: Bottled water: this just makes me howl with laughter

    just goes to show how stupid the american consumer can be at times....


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Re: Bottled water: this just makes me howl with laughter

    I buy lots of bottled water. I just use it when I need to rush out of the house or grab a bottle for running. It has it's places.

    Re: Bottled water: this just makes me howl with laughter

    this really isn't new news is it. all bottles have the source on it. and both aquafina and desani and run through good filters ( much better then says WDM) I really don't like the spring waters. It taste like farm well water.

    Half of bottled water has inherent contamination. That is what Consumer report found out. Make mine a Coors from the clean stream in the Rockies.
