This Sparkling Water Is Better Than LaCroix, And You Can Buy It At Trader Joe’s

We need to talk.

Listen, we know how important LaCroix is to you. We know it’s seen you at your best (beach bonfire, June 7, 2016) and at your worst (the day after the beach bonfire, June 8, 2016). And we know that nothing, nothing makes you happier than realizing there’s a flavor of LaCroix you somehow didn’t know about.

For all these reasons and more, we are not going to ask that you abandon this, the defining drink of your generation. However, we are going to gently recommend you test the waters with Spindrift, a flavored sparkling water that’s available at (gasp!) Trader Joe’s.

Now, you might be asking yourself, Is this an ad?, and we must emphatically insist it is not. We are not trying to sell you anything. We are instead trying to help you live your best life, and your best life doesn’t involve having to make a separate grocery-store trip just to hydrate in a trendy fashion.

Spindrift flavors include grapefruit, cucumber, lemon, raspberry-lime, orange-blackberry and strawberry, and the company claims the drink is the first of its kind to be made with real fruit. If you’re worried about being kicked out of Brooklyn or Silver Lake for turning your back on LaCroix, fear not as there’s room for both in your fridge, and besides, Spindrift is just as hip.
