This is why you find most 'spring' water to be a regional product. It's just darn expensive to ship water around the country.. compared to Soda which are usually Nationwide products because you don't ship the product as a finished product.. it's produced locally in bottling plants from concentrated syrup.
I find the bottled water here in Norway extremely satisfying and thirst quenching.
Back home I normally drink the flavored varients... the ones I call 'cancer water'.. because they have no calories, etc.. so they must be bad for you.
And the flavored brands vary a lot in taste. I only drink the Nestle ones. For regular water... Polar or Deer Park are usually quenching. Dansai is just tap water and I don't seek it out.
I hope that all of the purified water companies filter their product as opposed to bottling water straight out of the tap. I even have concerns about unregnizable brands that claim their product is spring water. I only buy recognizable brands, whether they be national or local.
Haven't tried a Norway brand yet. Interesting how quite a few companies from other countries are marketing their water here now. I've tried Nestle, and it is quite refreshing...goes down cold!
