About WTRMLN WTR

Review WTRMLN WTR
Perhaps the coolest part about WTRMLN WTR, besides its name, is it's back story. Co-founders Harlan Berger and Jody Levy put together this refreshing new company in order to fix an environmental food waste problem. They wanted to do something with the "discard" melons farmers just get rid of. These perfectly good watermelons, that didn't fit the cosmetic needs of the food industry were just going to waste.
Levy and Berger decided to squeeze these melons and gather the delicious water/juice that comes out. I had the opportunity to try several flavors. I enjoyed all of them except for the Cayenne, it just wasn't a flavor for me. The most refreshing flavors were the Watermelon Cucumber and the Watermelon Mint flavors. I do have to point out that just, because they have no added sugars, doesn't meant they are sugar free. They have 12 grams of naturally occurring sugars each bottle, which is actually quite high for a water drink. My husband who is diabetic, is unable to drink these. However, as long as you are not diabetic and you drink these in moderation, they make for a refreshing summer treat!
