as promised

So, vitamin water. I am annoyed that people think it is healthy. And that they think it is water. You know what else is water, with just a little color, flavor, and sugar added? Kool-Aid.

Just to clarify, people, most drinks are mostly water. It's when you add things to it that it becomes NOT water. Like tea, for example. Or soda. We don't say we're drinking "herbal water" or "cola water."

Also, adding vitamins to something does not automatically make it good for you. There is still the artificial flavor, color, and sweetener in vitamin water! That's like saying, Hey, one of the nuts in this Snickers is actually a vitamin! Now it's good for you!

Vitamin water also boasts how low-cal it is. Okay, fine. But low cal, again, does not necessarily mean healthy. Diet soda, for instance.

But I don't really have a problem with people who drink vitamin water to try and get fewer calories. That's cool. Just don't pretend it's healthy. What gets me is the Vandy kids drinking vitamin water with their organic yogurt cup and carrot sticks. One of these things is not like the others... Maybe I should give them a little credit, though, cause I guess two out of three ain't bad.

For more ranting on vitamin water, go here.


  1. I'm not a fan of the vitamin water.

    I am addicted to Coke Zero. But, not the point.

    However, if I can get Justin to drink Vitamin Water over Mt. Dew or some other really really sugary soda, I'll take it.

    I do hate that our nice vending machine that has water and green tea and granola now carries vitamin water. It bothers me a lot.

  2. You are hilarious! I just read your latest blogs! And I enjoyed them thoroughly!
