Which would you choose? For me it has to be flavoured water, on a hot day a glass of chilled water tastes incredibly refreshing! And drinking lots of water keeps our bodies weell hydrated and healthy!

Plain water gets my vote - always! Some years ago, fruit flavored water had become a fad here but i was never enticed to patronize it. I think plain water is much better because it doesn't have calories to add to your body. Unlike flavored one which definitely sugar on it on top of empty calories! it's a no no for me.

I would choose plain water as much as possible because it's good for our body, cleansing the body and keeps us healthy. It's good for the skin too and good for people on diet. But when I'm with friends and family, we usually drink coke, we enjoy it so much.

Can I choose both? LOL! I choose plain water most of the time especially to quench my thirst. But I'm a sucker of water. I drink a lot. Even when I go to bed a carry a bottle of water with me. Flavored drinks makes me even thirstier particularly softdrinks. I only drink softdrinks specifically sprite to ease gassy stomach or when I am too full and having a little indigestion and it is very, very seldom.

I enjoy drinking refreshingly cold water, especially on a hot day. I really love to travel and when I do this I always carry one or more water bottle. It warms a bit during the day but this really doesn't bother me. It is lovely to able to drink tap water but this is not always possible in some countries. So I buy bottled water instead. In Indonesia on the island of Sumatra I careful to to drink tap water but I made one awful mistake. I had a salad that had probably been washed in tap water. It made me very ill indeed. Flavored water often has additives in. The orange coloring can make me gasp. I found out that I am allergic to it. I therefore prefer to drink pure fruit juice like cranberry or grapefruit. But I still think that water is the best drink of all. Most people do not drink enough water.You are right that it is good to keep your body well hydrated and healthy.

I still go for the unflavored but chilled plain water, atleast I don't have to spend money just to buy a bottled flavored water. I see to it also that I drink at least 8 glasses of water in a day.

I prefer plain water and hate falovoured drink. I think there is something toxic invloved in flavoured, it is harm to my heath.

during summer, I prefer to drink plain water, cold or room temperature, doesn't matter as long as it is plain. it quenches the thirst better. flavored water like juices and sodas only make me more thirsty especially the sweet ones. on cold days I like both. ^__^

Plain water is always safe and preferable for me. There are times though that I would go for flavored waters. I remember craving for a flavored water when it came up with new flavors. Out of curiosity I would try a bottle or two. Most of the time, plain water is great for a therapy for cleansing.
