It's an acquired taste. I personally prefer plain water on crushed ice with some lemon but that's me. My homegirl swears by it though and she's doing great since she gave up soda got on WW and lost 100 pounds. So it's gotta be better than soda. Although I hear the carbonation isn't that great on the kidneys regardless.
Does anyone drink this stuff? It tastes like someone took a soda and took away all the flavor leaving the gas behind. It tastes weird as hell yet some people seem to actually like it. Is there something wrong with me or is this stuff not good?

Bøkeskogen is a forested hilltop which (along with the city of Larvik to the south of the hill) separates between Farris and the Skagerrak. Farris mineral water originates from rainwater falling on this hill. The water slowly filters through deposited glacial moraine material and reaches the spring some 15–20 years later, strongly mineralized. In 1988 a new spring, 21 meters deep, was discovered, and this new spring is the present source of the mineral water.
honestly my latest favorite:
I found it quite refreshing sometimes on really hot days, or after doing work outside. I didn't drink it all the time over water but it was something different I guess...
What i completely miss here is flavored carbonated water. I had this in Sweden and i think it's awesome. This stuff has a mild taste like pears or melon or whatever but it's nowhere near as sweet and thick as soda drinks. Best of both worlds imo.
Limited edition runs are good too.

Learn to love the stuff. You may not like it the first time, and if you used to be a soda addict, plain water is just plain and gets boring quick, so this stuff is a great remedy. Helped me lose 50 pounds.
