So I found out that people have strong feelings about sparkling water
I, too, share the sentiment of this post. Sparkling water needs to chill and stop trying to bite the inside of my mouth. It’s rude and unpleasant.
If I wanted something that tasted vaguely of fruit and the inside of my mouth, but stung, I’d drink a beehive.
sparkling water is literally just diet soda
No it isn’t. It is literally water with air added. Soda has coloring, flavoring, and sugar or sugar substitute.
