      Someone might, but not Polar. They are unpretentious, for which I give thanks.

      Also, yay Polar Golden Ginger Ale. Best thing ever for an upset stomach.

    2. yay, hotoy! can't wait to try. I settled on Peach eventually, so new flavors would be great!

      1. I just heard about the cucumber melon one. How was it??

        Ginger lemonade, pink grapefruit and the granny smith apple ones are a few of my favorites. I thought the mint mojito one was very plastic-y

          love the grapefruit, think that is all year.

          the ginger lemongrass seems seasonal and i LOVE it.

          the melon cuke is very good. mmmmm.

          will try the blueberry lemonade tomorrow.

          why do they have a lock on all these good flavors?

          although... there was still some mint-chocolate-chip on the shelf from christmas. ick.

            Yeah that was gross. I took the leap. That and the coconut. Lesson learned.

              I will see your coconut and raise you a fudge brownie cheesecake.

              It was a no.

            for me, the cuke melon was actually too faint a flavor. i got no taste ot watermelon, and oddly, only an occasional taste of cuke, which i would have liked stronger. would really love a cuke lime version.

            1. re: opinionatedchef

              I would love a plain cucumber version also. I usually put a slice of cucumber in the cuke-melon flavor, but you know, sometimes I am that lazy and would like to skip that step.

              1. re: opinionatedchef

                That's actually great to hear, OC. I generally think flavored water is OVERLY flavored. I will have to check out the cuke melon.

                1. re: Alcachofa

                  hi al, i tried the grapefruit last night and it was lovely- just like a whisper of flavor. but i wouldn't mind it and the cuke being a bit stronger either!

            2. The blueberry lemonade sounds pretty darn good.

              1. Oh, good. I loved the cucumber-melon one last year.
