Porter thinks my water obsession is silly. Whenever we go to Whole Foods I look at the water section longingly, especially at the Voss water. Over my shoulder I hear that distinct "Honey." Which translated means "don't even think about it, we are not spending $4 on a bottle of water" But it doesn't stop me from eyeing that glittery, refreshing beauty sitting on the shelf.
To prove to Porter that there was a difference in the water I bought a bottle of Voss and Fiji waters. Then I filled up a bottle of water from our fridge filter. I put them all in the fridge so they would be the same temperature. Then we took 3 identical, clear, shot glasses and I had Porter fill them up in the kitchen, so I couldn't see, putting one cup with each kind of water. He then brought them out and I was challenged to distinguish each of the waters.
It took me about 3 minutes of taking little sips of all of them. One was a little metallic tasting, another was mild and the third was a bit thinner. Then came the moment of truth. Glass one: Voss, glass two: fridge filter, glass three: Fiji ................ I waited in suspense .................. Correct! Porter said I got all three right!!!!!! Hooray! I can now get my artisan water and not feel badly because I can taste a difference! Although, I do admit $4 for a glass of water is a bit extravagant. Perhaps every once in a while, just as a treat :D
Oh, I had Porter take the taste test two. He guessed the Fiji, but mixed up the Voss and the fridge filter.
Let me know if you have a favorite water, I would love to try it!!!!
