Product Review: B’lue – Flavoured Water
It's an option for those who are water-repellent. The drink is not carbonated and non alcoholic in nature.
Although B’lue does contain vitamins and other so-called healthy ingredients, it contains 35 grams of sugar!!! So think about it? Do you take sugar with your water?
Not exactly the healthy drink this one! It will raise the water (and sugar) level in your body with every 500 ml. This isn't healthy water; it's chemicals in a water bottle. Your body needs WATER to rehydrate it - natural, pure water. NOT chemicals! So, don't waste money on this one or any flavoured water for that matter.
At the end of a regular day, sipping plain tap water can be dull and boring, especially if you aren't into juices and sodas. Of course, you can add a dash of lime to make water interesting, but that’s a lot of effort isn’t it? So, when we heard of flavoured water - Danone Narang’s B’lue - we sure wanted to find out what the fuss was all about?
What is B’lue?
B’lue is a kind of soft drink beverage that is enriched with a proprietary blend of vitamins B3, B6, B9, B12 and minerals like potassium, sodium and magnesium. B’lue comes in 3 fruit flavours – Apple, Peach and Guava. It claims to be rich in minerals and is free of caffeine, artificial colours and preservatives. (Read: It is a soft drink beverage and not a health drink!)
What does it look like?
The blue colour bottle makes it looks like you are drinking clear blue water. However, the flavoured water present in it is similar to plain water except with "enhancements". Presently, B’lue flavoured water is available in 500 ml bottles.
What does it taste like?
This one was our favourite. Sipping on the apple-flavoured B'lue gives you a feel that you are having apple juice minus the pulp. Our Verdict - it is Appy **** without the Fizz.
This flavour ranks second in our list. The peach taste is clean and slightly sweet in taste.
This is our least favourite! The taste is least impressive as compared to the above two and has an artificial smell and taste to it.
What is in it?
Water, sugar, acidity regulator, minerals, vitamins, energy, carbohydrate, sodium, magnesium and potassium.
