I don’t know who else to ask so I thought perhaps I would post on here and see if I am the ONLY one who noticed. Has the flavor and smell of Dasani water changed? I swear it has!
Okay I’m awful I contribute to the waste factor with my evil bottled water. There I said it, lets move on.
Recently within the past three to four months I have noticed that the water has a stronger smell, almost like chlorine. The taste isn’t fresh, crisp or anything that I have come to expect…but rather stale and strange.
Just wondering if I am crazy….that’s all.

hmmm interesting. I’ll have to pick up a bottle to try it out. I haven’t had it in a while but I usually love Dasani.

I am headed out to the store so I will pick up a bottle and check, I havn’t had one in a long time.

Dasani uses that local municipal water supply of where they bottle & distribute SO the water in that area (where ever that is) may be different in their cleaning/filtering…. maybe?..

@runsyellowlites: Yes, I forgot about that.
@Treejewel19: That prob explains it. The new guidelines from the EPA just hit the water municipalities a few months ago and they had to change the additives in the water. I noticed that our house water tastes even more horrible than it did. I stick to bottled spring water.

Treejewel19: it is so weird you said that. I also notice the water smells like bleach. This was brought to my attention by my 10 year old. The problem is, it’s not all bottles, only have had two that way. What should we do about it.

TaraP: Get a filter for your faucet at home and refillable water bottle for taking on the go.

TaraP: not sure there’s anything you can do about it. It’s owned by coca cola, which is owned by Disney. They also add sat in Dasani. Check out the label. You’ll find sodium.

TaraP: stop buying bottled water, especially if you are getting it for drinking at home. use a brita filter. bring a bottle where you go and refill it in a fountain. most tap water is safer than we give it credit for, it’s not going to kill us to occasionally drink it as-is.
but when you have no access to that and must buy a bottle (which I do occasionally too), I find that Aquafina tastes pretty good.

Treejewel19: runsyellowlites: Yep- usually Atlanta city water- thats where the major coca cola bottling plant is, and as a former resident I can confirm that atlanta water is pretty nasty stuff… Basically just extra filtered tap water, please stop paying them for that crap…
