I hate to start of a review like this, but the price here is just silly! I can buy the 24 pack of Dasani at my local Wal Mart for $4.99 (sometimes $3.99 depending on if I happen to buy it when it's on sale). I would think the seller has come up with a formula concerning the price so they can make some profit since the shipping would typically be high for this due to the weight. While I can very easily make it to Walmart before or after work, or at other times if desired, I can understand some people may not have the luxury of getting to the store so easily (if you live in for example a remote area like parts of Alaska or Canada, etc.). If I lived somewhere where I could not just go to the store, or the closest store was several hours away - I would have no problem ordering this product from Amazon. I am thankful I can get it at a good price, though I would pay more if I could afford it and I had no other choice (such as no stores nearby).

I have tried many brands of bottled water, and all have paled in comparison to Dasani! Yes I know that all (or almost all anyways) Bottled Water is just local tap water that is just re-filtered many or several times over using high end filters in HUGE amounts.

I do not totally agree that the bottles are harmful to you, though yes you can make a case that over time they are expensive and bad for the environment. I respect those views and appreciate the concerns and thoughts of those who hold opinions different from my own.

However, I just cannot seem to drink regular tap water! Yes OK I get it that this may be in a technical sense just that - nothing more than the tap water I profess to not stand and for that matter be able to enjoy and drink regularly as I can with Dasani. Dasani is filtered more than regular tap water, and maybe it could even be just a touch of salt that makes it taste better. I live in Illinois now, for about a year after living in South Carolina for over 30 years. I have been drinking Dasani off and on since about 2002. The Dasani here tastes exactly the same as what I used to get in South Carolina. That is one of the things I love about this product - the taste is consistent no matter where you get it in the country.

Also, I have a personal attachment with this product that I have never had with any other product. I had mono (mononucleosis) back in 2002. When you have Mono one of the main things you have to deal with is your throat swelling some and difficulty swallowing. For a while, I think the first few weeks I could not swallow much of anything nor drink much else besides water. When I was feeling bad one day at work, I had to leave and go to the Emergency Room at the local hospital. I had a blood test and was diagnosed with mono. So, after that I left to go home and stopped to get some things at the store to get me through the next few days at home.

One of the items I purchased at the store was a 24 pack of Dasani water, which I don't recall having ever tried prior to that (of course I had tried Bottled Water previously, just not Dasani before that). I was able to drink the Dasani without any problem at all and I have continued to drink it ever since! While this product was easy for me to consume compared to any other brand at the time I was sick, I have since not found another brand that compares in any way to the taste of Dasani.

I am not saying that some of the other brands such as Fiji (and others) are not any good, as there are many people who love them as I do Dasani.

I am only saying that for me and possibly many other people as well that Dasani is not only a great value but by far the best bottled water you can buy.

I understand that there are now different varieties of Dasani, I just don't ever want to see this one go away! Thanks Dasani!

This water has pretty much spoiled me for any other. It's a little too expensive for me to drink it exclusively but I've been trying in vain to get my day to day drinking water to taste just like this. I've tried other more expensive brands like Fiji which just tastes flat, and cheaper brands which are just "meh"; I've also gone through several home filtration systems and still no luck getting anywhere near the clean, refreshing taste that Dasani has. I had heard/read that Dasani is actually super-purified municipal(=city) water, not from a mountain spring or similar natural source but it's the taste that people buy it for and IMO there isn't any other brand sourced from anywhere that has a better taste.

Maybe it's that there is a slight addition of salt in this water?

Minus one star for expensive. This is likely available locally for less.

I understand companies have to make a profit to cover shipping costs. But, I would never pay this outrageous price for water I can get at the grocery store for $3.99. Some people may not be able to get to the store as easily as others, but you are getting ripped off. Buy a Brita filter and problem solved, filtered water right from the tap. I use a Brita filter, the bottled water is for my emergency supply, I always have 50 cases on hand. All bottled water taste the same to me anyway. I never understood how some people have a preference on bottled water, it's all the same filtered water. My Brita filtered tap water taste exactly like the Dasani bottled water. Do a blind taste test and be honest with yourself, don't guess, can you really taste a difference?

I love Dasani water-have been drinking it for years. What I am appalled at was the price I had to pay for 48 - 16 oz bottles - almost $100 ! I can purchase 48 bottles at my local supermarket for $14!! I am in my 90s and I thought this was the answer to stop my lugging of water. Needless to say I won't be ordering it again.

I use this as my 2nd choice for bottled water in case I can not find the Nestle pure life I always drink. I has a good water taste & no funny smells or taste. I still think Nestle is better. But I can not always find that in single servings. And sometimes I need an extra bottle & can usually find this in seperate bottles.
