    It is the only drink I like really cold. Most everything else I like just a little more towards room temperature, but carbonated water tastes horrible if it is really really cold. At least to me.

    I think it tastes horrible. Honestly I like the store brand at my King Soopers / Kroger way better. Walmart has a good store brand too. The store brands have more fruit flavor and less seltzer flavor.

    I drink flavored, unsweetened, carbonated water all the time and have since long before LaCroix became a "thing." I don't tend to drink LaCroix terribly often because it tends to be more expensive than other brands. You can basically buy this stuff based on flavor and price. I like some flavors but not others and that's true for all the brands I've had. I particularly like the wide variety of flavors from Polar which is about the middle of the price range but that doesn't mean I don't buy the store brand one occasion, especially when it hits 50-cents a bottle!

    Among the brands I've tried: Aldi's, Trader Joe's, Syfo, Polar, Deer Park, LaCroix, Vintage ... They're all perfectly function adequate.

    I like the Target brand, tastes as good as LaCroix and is about $2 cheaper. I also like the Aquafina Dragonfruit flavor. I sometimes just buy plain seltzer and add a tablespoon of cherry or pomegranate juice. It's not zero calorie, but the flavor is good.

    Yay or Nay?? Sometimes I get tired of drinking plain water all the time but I don’t want to pick back up soda. Anyone have any reviews on La Croix?

    It's just water...with bubbles...it isn't soda...not sure what the issue is here.

    I love it because it's not too sweet! Its the only thing I drink besides water and black coffee. I HATE sweet drinks, they make me sick just thinking about it. They also have free la croix at my office which is great. I probably have a can once a month when I'm in the mood

    Lemon, lime and grapefruit are awesome. The other flavors I've tried, not so much. I can't even stomach a regular soda anymore. Way way too sweet.

    You either like it or you don't, I don't think there's really an in between. I love it! My favorite flavors are the peach pear, cran-raspberry, and berry! My least favorite are coconut and the plain one. And if you have an Aldi buy you they often times have cases of it for a little bit cheaper!

    I keep trying to like it. My husband loves it (especially lime flavor) so we have it at home and my employer provides it, so it's free here at work (various flavors). But, for some reason I can't get used to the "dry" taste of it. I don't know how to explain it. But most people seem to like it, so if you do, drink away!

    I know what you mean. I don't even find it thirst-quenching and I struggle to drink much of it, although I don't actually dislike it. I will stick with Coke Zero.

    Love it! I just found key lime flavor at Target. You wouldn't think it would be much different than the original lime, but oh my god, it is so good!

    I think it's absolutely disgusting, but I seem to be in the minority. To me, it tastes like what I'd imagine pop with absolutely no flavor to taste like. People at my work are obsessed with it.

    I enjoy orange LaCroix. If you're willing to pay more, strawberry Perrier is very nice.

    Not a fan. TBH, I've only tried the blackberry/cucumber flavor. I love both foods, so I thought it would be a good one to try! Nope. I managed to drink most of it, but it's not something I'll reach for next time I'm thirsty. Water is good enough for me. I can infuse cucumber if I want to. I've also bought other flavors, but after that first one, I don't even want to try the others. Now I don't know what to do with them. I've also got pineapple/strawberry and cranberry/raspberry flavors. My son tried the pineapple/strawberry one and hated it.

    I like the grapefruit and the lime. I really disliked the orange.
    At work I use our soda machine and get plain soda water and add a splash of lemonade- it’s seriously the best but I can’t recreate it at home

    I always think it's funny that people think it's trendy (as a couple people said upthread), since it's been around here forever.

    Even found an article about that: https://www.vox.com/2016/6/20/11666314/lacroix-sparkling-water-seltzer

    "In the 1990s, LaCroix was the favorite drink of Midwestern moms. How did it get so cool?"

    For those who don't know (and find this kind of thing interesting), LaCroix was originally made by G. Heileman, the former brewer responsible for, yes, Old Style, among other terrible beers. The name comes from a combination of the city of La Crosse (where G Heileman was located) and the St. Croix River.

    Since when did Old Style become a terrible beer? That stuff pretty much defined my early twenties. The parts I can remember, anyway.

    Sparkling Ice is the best! Try it if you haven’t already

    Heh, okay. ;-)

    It was very often very cheap, that I'll say for it.
