Osmosis Mint Water

Other Beverage

03.07.2009

Out for an afternoon bike ride to Point Defiance in Western Washington I felt my bodies’ reluctance to continue after a grueling uphill climb. This seemed like the perfect time to stop and grab a bottle of water from a nearby gas station. As I perused the cooler section my eyes were drawn to a shiny silver bottle of Osmosis Mint Water. Like a raccoon, once in my hand I could not put the shiny object down and proceeded to check the ingredients for my two mortal enemies sugar and high-fructose corn syrup. The label called it mint water and according to the ingredients that is exactly what it was: purified water, mint.

An incredible surprise awaited me inside that shiny bottle, it was as if a cool mountain stream had been laced with fresh mint leaves and then bottled. If the phrase cool and refreshing hadn’t been previously coined this would be the product to do it. Available in Mint, Mint Lime, Mint Tangerine and Mint Grapefruit, this promises to be my go-to water. You can currently purchase Osmosis in Washington, Oregon and Alaska. Check the website for exact locations.

    We’ve got MetroMint here in the DC area – not sure how much they’ve expanded but it’s a refreshing jolt of freshness as well. :)

    I live in Seattle and just now heard of Osmosis. I’ve been drinking MetroMint (made in California) for a couple years now. I want to try Osmosis – I’ll keep an eye out for it. I’d like to see how it differs from MetroMint. I tried making my own mint water by boiling fresh mint in water – didn’t work. But I just read on another site that you can make it by putting the fresh leaves in a glass container of room-temperature water and letting it sit overnight. I’m going to try that tonight! We have peppermint and spearmint growing in our garden. I like the spearmint a little bit better. I don’t know what the retail price is on Osmosis, but MetroMint is a tad overpriced for what it is. It goes for $1.25 a bottle on sale at Fred Meyer, all the way up to $1.79 a bottle at PCC. If the homemade kind works, I’ll start making it a gallon at a time in a glass sun tea jar. I was always bugged by MetroMint’s plastic bottles, anyway – bad for the environment!!! Looks like Osmosis comes in a plastic bottle too, although I can’t tell from the picture.
