Does Anyone Else Crave the Taste of Bottled Water?

Okay, so yeah, weird question but I just came in from a run and was thinking of it. All I want right now is a cold bottled water and I'm out. I have a filtered water dispenser in my fridge, but there is just a unique taste of bottled water that I somehow crave. Am I crazy? Does anyone else get a bottled water craving?

  1. Not regular Poland Spring water, but I do crave fizzy mineral waters such as Pellegrino.

        I do enjoy sparkling water of all varieties as long as they are plain.

        I want to squeeze in my own fruit. No artificial flavors please.

        1. Just the opposite--I don't like the flatness of bottled water. Just don't get the craze for it (I'll refrain from my environmental waste rant).

            To the waste aspect, when I do have bottled water on hand, I try to only drink it maybe 50% of the time, since I know it's wasteful and like I said, I have filtered water from the fridge. I also will recycle my bottles and refill them.

          2. None of these responses is helping in my feeling crazy for this feeling. Best I accept it, I suppose.

              In my hammock, I do get cravings for a cold mug of beer.

                if so, keep an alagash ready for me.

            2. I dunno about a "craving", but at my office, we have both a fridge with filtered water, and the big "water cooler" type water. I prefer the water cooler water.
