As if buying bottled water isn’t stupid enough, now people are buying flavored water. When you add flavor to water, it becomes a drink! It is no longer just water! This has been known to man for millennia. For example, the Aztecs added sacrificial virgin blood to their water and called it Cherry Coke. Now people seem to think it is cooler to call it flavored water.
Flavored water is like Cool Aid for the health conscious morons who believe that you must drink 8 glasses of water per day! Who is dumber, the people who came up with the idea of flavored water or the ones who buy it. It must be the ones who buy it because they are the ones who are paying for this crap and participating in this scheme.
The word “drink” has a sacred meaning in our society and we should resist this most recent attack on its significance and rightful place among beverage names. The FDA should step in and issue new regulations requiring flavored water to be labeled as either a drink or a waste of money. Call you congressperson and insist that this be done as soon as possible.
