So I’ve heard over and over again how good this water it is but how expensive it is. (is it worth the price?) So when Kroger had the smaller size bottles on sale for $1.00 and I had a .50 cents off coupon, that was my time to give it a try.
I will start out by saying that I am not a consumer that has a “favorite” water. I have heard soooo many people say they prefer one brand of water over another. To me, water is water. So with that being said:
The very first thing I noticed about the Fiji water is the clarity. I never thought of any store bought, bottled water as cloudy but this water IS clear; on a whole new level.
Secondly, the packaging is beautiful. The name Fiji with the beautiful, tropical packaging makes you feel as if you are getting water from an amazing, tropical water fall.
I won’t comment on the price as I stated earlier, I only paid .50 cents for my bottle.
My curiosity got the best of me and I did something I’ve never done before. I started reading about water, lol. More specifically, about Fiji water. And I found SEVERAL articles about FIJI water, none of which gave positive information.
What I read was that this water is (normally) more expensive because as their slogan says, “and remember, we saved you a trip to Fiji.” Fiji has some of the most purest, clean, beautiful water on earth. With this being said, the majority of Fiji’s population is poor and disease ridden. In fact, over 50% of Fiji’s population does not have access to clean, filtered water. All the while, they have this amazing water source that their goverment is selling, for profit, at the expense of it’s own people, to profit from spoiled Americans.
This seems to be the “water to the stars” as you see many pictures of celebs indulging in the name brand water. So I find it disappointing that if the above information is fact, that so many celebs who use their name to promote good causes would indulge in this product.
On the chance that the above information is fact, I will not be purchasing Fiji water again. I’ll risk my tap water that as bad as people seem to think it is, it is still better than what the Fiji population is allowed access to.
