I have nothing against water. I drink it all day long. Occasionally I need more flavor than just plain water. The dilemma then becomes, what to choose? There are many options that seem healthy, but how to choose. Well I decided to compare the Revive flavor of Vitamin Water with a Wild Berry Juice Squeeze by Crystal Geyser.
To see how these two drinks compare, just
|Wild Berry Juice Squeeze (12 FL oz.)||Revive Vitamin Water (20 FL oz.)|
|Serving size||One bottle||8 ounces|
|Sugar||30 g||13 g|
|Vitamin C||40% RDI*||40% RDI|
|Vitamin B12||40% RDI||20% RDI|
*RDI=Recommended Daily Intake
Both drinks are fortified with vitamin B 12, but the Vitamin Water contains three other B vitamins as well as 350 mg of potassium per bottle, or 140 mg per serving. The main difference in ingredients is the Juice Squeeze is made from 70 percent juice and has no added sugar, but the Vitamin Water is mostly water and contains only one percent juice and is sweetened with crystalline fructose and cane sugar. The Vitamin Water is considerably less sweet, which I prefer, but is not carbonated and I miss the bubbles. Taking all that into consideration, I must say I prefer the Vitamin Water but I'd definitely drink the bottle, all two and a half servings of it, in one sitting. What about you? Do you have a preference between these two drinks? Tell me in the comments section below.
