LeCroix




I will drink this when it is free and there are no alternatives for fizzy drinks.

My brother enjoys it but I find it undrinkable. I’ve tried quite a few brands that offer flavored water in a can and haven’t been able to enjoy them. I think water taste so much better coming out of plastic. Terrible environmentally but better for the taste buds. Hint water is very good.

I’ve never seen Hint water where we live.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Mostly Poland Springs for me, or Polar beverages. Poland has a much better fizz quotient, not too much.

I'll drink whatever fizzy water is available—so long as it doesn't have any of those nasty artificial sweeteners in it. That leaves me with no options in a lot of places, but it's gotten a lot easier for us bubblyheads in the last 20 years.

I like San Pellegrino best, as I think it somehow has a hint of natural sweetness. La Croix, Perrier, Poland Spring, Topo Chico are all fine, as are the anodyne seltzers like Schweppes, Bonaqua, Bubly, PurAqua, Polar. I'm not very keen on heavily mineral water, such as Gerolsteiner.

My son drinks Hint and Wegmans Wonder Water. He doesn’t like anything with carbonation. I don’t care for anything carbonated either.

Aldi has great faux LeCroix and it's inexpensive.

I never heard of it until this thread.

But then I primarily drink tap water, some milk, a little bit of coffee (that I make at home), tea, beer, and wine. Maybe a little juice once or twice a week. That's it.

I never even buy bottled water.

I haven't even had a soda for...many many years. I cant even remember the last time.

I guess I'm just out of the loop as far as trendy drinks go.

Someone I know who used to regularly drink La Croix especially lemon and pampelmousse flavors complained a 3-4 years ago that they must have changed the formula because it tasted different. They have since switched over to Trader Joe's house brand sparkling water. I'm pretty sure nothing changed except the design on the outside of the can.

I live on bubble water and iced tea. LeCroix is pretty wimpy in the flavor department overall, but they do have a couple of palatable flavors in their barn. Bubly and Aha are excellent in the flavor zone for name brands, and like Aldi, Kroger's faux LeCroix is better across the board than the original.

That said, based on the product itself, there's no logically justifiable reason for LeCroix's success. I can only surmise that their marketing gurus have got their poop together better than the competition, and have subliminally co-opted the masses into thinking they'll get brownie points from others by showing off brand loyalty. I doubt LeCroix would win any blind taste tests against any of its tastier competitors.

I saw Bubly on sale, got a 8-pack for $2. Not much flavor but I like the light carbonation after sweating in the yard.

Cheap. Available most everywhere in the US. 1000% healthier alternative to soda.

Soda >> Diet soda >> La Croix thumbs up

La Croix is cheaper than bottled water, though it's made from the same water. Has no sweeteners in it at all. Has a subtle flavor to make it more interesting than drinking bottled water and has bubbles. If you've been raised on a diet of Coke/Pepsi/sweet tea then you'll probably find it devoid of any redeeming value.

I had a Hint of Lime in a Lexus dealership several months ago, it was gross! Glad it was free, tossed it.

Spousal unit loves it. Mixes it with Captain Morgan orange/vanilla twist rum.

I don't hate it, but I don't love it.
