I wanted to re-post this article on a “nutritional” drink that I used to drink thinking it was good for me. I felt duped after reading this and will no longer be drinking these types of drinks.
One of my staff members was drinking this brand a few weeks ago and once I pointed out to him the wasted calories in this flavoured sagar-water, he too now refuses to buy more of it.
Please give this article a quick read and see how the marketers manipulated the ingredients to make it look healthy when in fact it is just flavoured sugar-water.
Will you buy this product again?
Apparently a lot of people won’t be buying it either and a lawsuit has been launched against Coca Cola, the manufacturer, by a non-profit organization which feels Coke made “unwarranted health claims” through this product.
I could not agree with the author more. When I saw the product was called “Vitamin Water” I assumed it was healthy, not akin to a soft drink with 33 grams of sugar per serving.
It is a marketing ploy gone wrong.
Personally, I would like back all the money I have ever spent on this product…
