Here at greenlite we understand that water can be a bit…well…bland and boring, especially when you’re trying to down your recommended 5 servings of GreenLite water bottles. Well, the folks at Hint feel that way too, and have come up with a great, hydration solution. Hint is fruit and herb infused bottled water made with all natural ingredients (no artificial preservatives or sweeteners) zero calories, and a “hint” of flavor.
In Hint CEO Kara Goldin’s own words, “The idea behind Hint is simple: pure water, nature’s original refreshment, accented with a hint of natural flavor. No sugar, no artificial sweeteners: Hint is a refreshing alternative to sodas, juice and other sweetened drinks and it tastes great.”
Hint water is an extremely refreshing choice for hydration, it’s not your average bottle of water, nor is it your typical bottle of artifical tasting “flavored water”. With its zero calories and natural flavors, you get more than what you bargain for with Hint, think of it as a non-sugary flavor infused treat for your taste buds. The flavors in each variety are very subtle, similar to the cucumber infused water you’d get at a fancy spa or resort. We are loving the wide variety of fun flavors Hint has to offer. From your standard “Lime” and “Strawberry-Kiwi” flavors to more exotic and fun ones such as “Honey Dew Hibiscus” and “Mango Grapefruit”.
Hint seems to be popping up everywhere these days and is carried nationally by Starbucks and Whole Foods. Just about the only grocery store that isn’t carrying Hint these days seems to be Safeway, but check out their handy dandy store locator widget on their website to pick up some Hint at your closest convenience. And the icing on the all natural cake is that Hint is local! Their business head quarters are located in the Cow Hollow area in San Francisco (a mere stone’s throw from our GreenLite San Francisco office!)
Each bottle of Hint is 16 oz. and retails for around $1.70 each, depending on where you purchase it. 12 Packs of each flavor can be purchased on through their website for $22. This price may seem a bit steep for a bottle water, but considering a bottle of plain old arrowhead water costs about $1.25 from your neighboorhood corner store but isn’t infused with a pomegranate-tangerine essence, perhaps you get what you pay for.
Look at Hint as a special treat for your taste buds, when you just can’t stand another bottle of plain old water and a slice of lemon just isn’t cutting it. Their all natural ingredients and unique flavor varieties are a fun addition to your normal water routine. You can find hint just about everywhere and each bottle’s little hint of flavor and all natural ingredients are a great way to add a hint of flavor to your GreenLite Diet.
