Anyone who knows me knows my obsession with LaCroix water. For years, my parents have dragged cases of these delicious, bubbly beverages home from places like Sam's and Costco. And for these years, I've enjoyed the same three flavors: Plain, Lemon and Lime. Then, upon living in Charleston for a while, I heard rumors that there was another flavor to be had: Orange. "No!" I exclaimed. "Yes," those wiser than me replied. And thus, it was true. There were four, not three, LaCroix flavors out there. This started my quest...if one more than three flavors exists, then surely there must be more! And, indeed, that was was true. On a return trip to the place they call Publix, my heart and lips found a flavor called Berry. And then, later, my mother stumbled upon yet another great flavor, named Cran-Rasberry, at Ingles in the mountains of North Carolina. And then, even later than that, my world was well and truly rocked: Costco changed up the flavors in their LaCroix water bundles and added GRAPEFRUIT. And then I died. This may well be the greatest flavor to ever be mixed with sparkling water. I sipped, fell upon the floor of my kitchen and wept like a small child. My heart was opened and my tongue was baptised (can you tell that I really like this water?) and I was reborn. So, after years of only three flavors, there now exists seven delightful La Croix tastes in this world and I pray each day that there will be more added.
I am not a paid sponsor (though if any La Croix employees are reading this, I'd definitely like to be!) of this water...I'm just a ridiculous fan. Sometimes there is a product out there that just changes your life and this is one of those things. I've been at my folks' house for the past day and am quickly draining their reserves. Is anyone else as rabidly into LaCroix or any other drink item? A wild fan for a rarely found candy or treat?
