blk. Alkaline Functional Water Beverage

Fresh, pure, clean black-colored alkaline water, with a fun reference to "Star Wars."

I suppose those who are aware about quality can now confess that regular, 'purified'/'spring' water leaves this tangy after-taste that causes bad breath (say what you want, since this is coming from my experience having drank so many different water brands). Also, I truly will never understand why anyone would even think of drinking water from the kitchen/bathroom sink. If you've read the book, and/or read our review "Breasts: A Natural and Unnatural History," near the end of the book, author Florence Williams talks about a man who suffered from breast cancer, having drank dirty, unclean water. I'm not a fan of cancer, but if that's something you like, go ahead; I just write stuff, and share/produce what I like on this website.

Fortunately, there are more humble brands who want to change the way we drink water. This is also fitting if you're a Star Wars fan as well: Let's take a look at blk. water!

blk. had a little promotion going on, to which I chimed in and decided to give such opportunity a try. Given the quiet word spreading around about the benefits of alkaline, and even distilled, water, it's a matter of time. I have drank alkaline and distilled water in the past, and have felt great about the cleanliness and freshness of it. How about black water? It's a neat experience and a cool take on alkalinity, but it's still, well, water.

Drinking this is best when it's fully chilled from the refrigerator, so I suggest placing this either on the middle or top part of your fridge. When chilled, go ahead and drink it. You may find that upon sipping, it sort of plays with your expectations, psychologically. Why is that? When I first drank this, the vision of the liquid led my brain into telling me that what I'm about to drink is either grape juice, de-carbonated soda [pop], or cold, unsweetened coffee. Suddenly, as I chugged my portion, my brain processed in a confused manner, thinking it was either one of the beverages previously mentioned, but my tastebuds tell me is pure, clean water. Has anyone gone through this thought process? It's a funny feeling, almost like you're telling yourself it's water, but the black color makes your brain think it's another beverage. Perhaps, you're one of those people who drinks beverages with your eyes closed, and if you are one of those people, you and your brain likely won't go through this visual confusion. Having mentioned this, does that mean it's a bad thing? Absolutely not. It's a mental sensation that triggers an assumption, yet the receptors on your tongue says otherwise. Yeah, "Confusion City," indeed.

It was an amusing situation I'd thought I'd mention. All in all, it's pure, clean water with fresh minerals added in. These minerals ought to make you feel hydrated and energized, though I wouldn't consider it an energy drink by any means. The amount of liquid per bottle is pretty good, enough to even finish during your lunch break at school/work. It's served and packaged in BPA-free plastic bottle which is good, though the costs would be high if I were to suggest packaging the water in glass or copper bottles. Either way, it's fine, but it's also good to know for those who are incredibly strict about any acid leaks in our beverages.

I know, we take water for granted. Given that this is just pure, alkaline water, this is the kind of water you have/need to start drinking. When you do shop for alkaline water, make sure to read the ingredients section, and if it contains "stuff" like bicarbonates, or polycorbonates, it's alkaline water we don't suggest getting. Triple check that it's all just alkaline water without any of the chemicals, then you'll be just fine. This black water has no ingredients of such sort, so you'll be confident you're drinking the real thing.

If you check and shop on their website, GetBLK.com, they've got multiple different flavors to choose from! We just got the regular, basic alkaline water.

Unless you're a big fan of cancer, we suggest you stop drinking, or even cooking with, water from the sink. Drink fresh; Drink alkaline water—drink blk. water. After drinking blk., you'll never ever go back! Seriously, though, after drinking alkaline, you'll never go back and buy any of those "mainstream" water brands, all filled with ingredients most of us don't use in everyday conversation. Think about that; Taste the difference, feel the difference.

Thank you so much, blk.! Highly recommended!
