In light of the East Bay Municipal Utility District’s recent announcement about potential changes to tap water color and taste, we at the Clog will certainly be investing in a Brita filter. But it might be easier — and cheaper — for us if the problem were stopped at the source. So, we thought about more appealing flavors that our tap water could be changed to in order to mask the metallic taste:
1. Lemon: Lemony water, such as at restaurants, whenever we wanted would be pretty cool.
2. Cucumber: This refreshing flavor will remind you of a spa day and help destress you.
3. Coconut: This would be great because paying $4 for a single serving of coconut water is actually excessive.
4. Jamba Juice: It’s hard to get all your vitamins every day as a college student. Jamba-Juice water could help us out in this effort.
5. Coffee: Since we’re college students, the majority of what we drink is caffeinated, so it’s only fitting that our water be coffee flavored.
6. Gatorade: With this in our watered supply, every sip will inspire us to work out.
7. Soda: Real soda isn’t healthy, but it tastes good, making it the perfect solution.
8. Water from a pristine tropical spring: We would feel like we’re on vacation every time we take a sip.
9. Chai: Sometimes, walking to Strada for a chai tea latte is too much effort, but when don’t you want something chai flavored?
10.Candy canes: This way, we can feel festive and minty fresh all year long!
