I thought just the bottles had changed for Poland Springs Sparkling Water, but the flavor has changed, too. It used to be subtle and light, now it's absolutely disgusting, syrupy, and super sweet.
The bottle claims that there's nothing in this but natural flavors and sparkling water, but it tastes like tonic water with HFCS.
I took several mouthfuls just trying to pinpoint exactly what I was tasting. I'm torn between really cheap fake-orange-flavored candy that you get out of those 25-cent machines as a kid or poorly flavored cough syrup that I used to get as a kid. Either way, it's gross. I'm so bummed out.
I literally used to stock my fridge with this flavor and now I have to go to another brand. Why would you change it?
