Review: Trader Joe's - Maple Water

Trader Joe's Maple Water features the sap from a maple tree. Basically, it's the stuff that people reduce to make maple syrup.

A 32-oz carton was $2.99.

Maple water is a good name for this as it's clear and just as thin as water (they must boil a lot of the stuff to make a single bottle of syrup). The taste is a little different though.

I was expecting something that tasted like watered down maple syrup but it's more like really, really watered down maple syrup. There's a very light sweetness as well as a very light rendition of that cloying maple taste.

The carton is marked "Refresh & Hydrate" and the maple water is pretty refreshing and I'm guessing since it's mostly water, it'll also hydrate you very well.

Overall, Trader Joe's Maple Water was a nice enough take on water and was interesting to try but, given the price, I think I'd rather just drink water.
