Boxed Water Is Better: Is it really?

Today, while visiting a well-known museum in Washington DC, I had my daughter buy me a bottled water. The water came packaged in a paper carton, much like a milk carton. On the outside of the carton, “hello” was on one side, “Boxed Water Is Better” with trademark was on two sides, and information about how the water was processed, the production of the box, how this carton affected the carbon footprint, and a disclosure that the company will donate 1% of its annual revenue to reforestation and world water relief.

This water is processed by reverse osmosis. It is purified water. The box is BPA Free.

Now let’s talk about the water. I was warm and thirsty. When my daughter gave me the water, I opened the twist top and took a drink. I must admit, it tasted a lot like municipal water to me. But this is what stood out the most to me. It tasted like water from a paper container. There was an after taste. After drinking the water, I could taste something like waxed paper. I really cannot describe the taste but it tasted a lot like the carton. I drink a lot of bottled water and prefer Dasani Water. This water tasted nothing like Dasani.

On a positive note, “Boxed Water Is Better” is packaged in a biodegradable carton except for the cap. It is good for the ecosystem, but I still cannot get past the after taste. If I were to rate this water on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the very best, I would have to give it a 3.
