Miscellaneous: Meat Water

You know those vitamin waters that have been in the stores since America has gone on its healthy kick? They are in those short, sort of squat bottles and have pink, blue, red, and purple as colors. They are supposed to be chock full of all the vitamins a person needs and are sold by all kinds of manufacturers, including grocery store generic.

Well, someone has one upped them. Imagine drinking water that has all the protein you need. Most of those diets are focused on the amount of protein you are or aren't supposed to have with your mountain of veggies. Protein water! Only, the vitamin ones have those wonderful fruity blends. How will protein water stand out? MAKE IT TASTE LIKE MEAT!

Yeah, you heard me. Sounds crazy. Water that tastes like meat - cheeseburger, tandori chicken, fried oysters, and haggis to name just a few. And you can't drink them cold (mostly) or they may not taste okay. Many of the company's meat water products don't even have any meat or meat by product, making them safe for vegans!

I'm not supposed to knock it if I don't try it, but that is so not happening! For one, eeewww! For another, there is no place on the site to purchase or find retailers of MeatWater. People have commented on inconsistencies with the website as well. And there's this article. Either way it has given me a good laugh and food for thought ;)

I know, right? But keep in mind that it is likely a hoax because there isn't anywhere on the site to order. Still can't imagine it *shakes head*
