    ... and now becomes "Stern Show-Advertiser-Worthy"

    Someone's getting hosed! I buy my gallons of local supermarket distilled and purified water for about 89cents.

    I don't buy water because I think it is magical

    I buy it because I'm fucking thristy and in the car

    I would feel foolish drinking out of a gallon jug from Krogers

    I can't believe people didn't know that, it's a Pepsi product so I just assumed they bottled the tap water they make the sodas out of before carbonating it and adding all the other shit.

    Exactly. It says right on the label something like "purified" water. I'd go thirsty on campus unless I brought my own stuff or else bought something completely unhealthy on general principle just to avoid paying $2.50 for tap water.

    Didn't Dasani (Coke Product) come out a few years ago saying the same thing about their product? So why is this a surprise?

    I thought this was common knowledge too.

    It's brilliant actually. The water used for Aquafina is just a fraction of what is needed to create Pepsi, yet is sold for more than double the price. Lol.

    Aquafina sounds like a female superhero.
    Look up in the sky. It's a bird, It's a plane, no it's just fucking tap water.

    there's fluoride in everything these days: ground water, food supply, etc... fluoride supplementation is no longer recommended by the AAP or the ADA.

    This is exactly what I use, and I get my filters when they're on sale at Costco for about $7each in packs of 5

    If I see "purified" on the bottle, I stay away from the bottled water. Purified water is bullshit.

    I only drink Poland Springs. Their natural spring water is bullshit too, but it is still a better quality of water.

    I have never tasted a purified bottle water that didn't taste like crap.
