I agree! I have a reusable bottle which I can just refill anywhere for Free! I like free!
It's a water to go bottle which has a filter so I can use any water source... even a puddle :)

Bottled water is one of the largest hoaxes there is. ( good in countries with unhygienic water supply though)

The best ones are Dasani (Coca-Cola) and Aquafina ( PepsiCo)

Good, clean, healthy tap water with added plastic components.

Fiji and Voss?
Hahahaha!

Janne, you're wrong. Water mineral content changes the taste and the interactions in drinks of all kinds.

This is strictly big 'P' political when it comes to companies like Nestle' bottling and selling nearly free Canadian water.
Not allowed here, just as well as you don't need my rants
about the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) negotiations right now.

Tastes have changed over the centuries.
Aztec hot chocolate was "chocolatl" = water and ground roasted cocoa beans.
Corn meal was added to soak up the cocoa butter fat. Chili pepper was added for zip.

The Spanish used vanilla and sugar instead of the other condiments.
They changed the name, the pronunciation, to suit their language.

Got another to try sometime soon. Won a bottle of French orange liqueur in a tombola today at a village Xmas fair.
Chocolate orange sounds fantastic too.
I don't realy drink very often but this is becoming a bit of a habit!!!!!! All your fault British Red getting me onto this. :) :) :)
Cointreau & dark chocolate really work!

It is a very popular cake amongst my friends. Makes a delicious pud with ice cream and a hot chocolate sauce. I use home made old English marmalade in the cake and melted over the top to glaze it. I will booze up the sauce with the orange liqueur. Can't wait !
