Bottled Hoax

Imagine yourself laying on a sandy beach. As you take in the supple views and iconic air, you reach for your multi-fruit, multi-liquor, multi-umbrella, tropical drink. But wait! Wouldn’t you rather have a beverage “bottled and certified at the source in Hawaii…the result of this ancient water being shepherded with special care through a proprietary process that takes out almost all of the salt, but retains important natural electrolytes that are essential for the body and are easily absorbed…”with a “clean, rich taste that quenches your thirst and replenishes body, mind and spirit”? Of course you would, and so would Rick Macpherson. Rick dicussess the hype, science, and yes the taste of bottle deep-sea water, Kona Deep. Rick’s opinion? “And the taste? It tasted like… well, like water. Like ice-cold bottled water. No magic, no paradise, no subtle undertaste of the ocean. Just a mouthful of water. Certainly satisfying, hardly transformative.” Well I’m certainly surprised that it doesn’t taste different but perhaps Rick’s palate for deep-sea water is undeveloped? For now I will stick with my deep-sea water in this form.

More on the stupidity that is bottled deep-sea water…

  1. Some “freaks” (I have to speak politely, because I have an obligatory exam with one of them) offered poor farmers in a certain heavy-metal contaminated valley here in Slovenia “deep sea water” that will “wash out” the lead, that has accumulated in the soil during the history of lead industry operation.

    Needless to say, all they did was kill the earth with extra salts…
