The fine people at She is Media and FabFitForm must have seen me in numerous health and fitness magazines because they entrusted me to review their water infuser bottle. So I will try to give you my thoughts on it. The bottle itself is pretty self-explanatory, a large cylinder, the “infuser” chamber, a pull out lid for the infuser and a very heavy-duty cap. Mind you I live in the winter vacation mecca of southern Indiana so the availability of “fresh” fruit and vegetables in this area is non-existent.
For round one, I chose a strawberry and blueberry concoction. Also to get the “full” experience I used bottled water that is more than likely out of a tap in Portsmouth, NH rather than the tap water at my current residence. I then let it chill in the refrigerator for an hour and then went “bottoms” up. Did it infuse, the short answer is yes, long answer DO NOT USE HALF A LEMON UNLESS YOU REALLY LIKE TO PUCKER UP. The lemon overpowered the blueberries, think of it as a heavyweight going up against a flyweight in the fruit world. This was my mistake and not the product’s fault. The product did was it was designed to do INFUSE. Now let me undo the permanent sour look I may just have adopted!
Round two of my “how to make water fun again” experiment was a tropical medley of pineapple, mango, papaya, kiwi and some more blueberries. I used bottled water again, according to the label it was from a fresh water spring in Canada, I’m still guessing it’s from Portsmouth, NH though. Once the concoction was loaded up it also got all expenses paid trip to the refrigerator to chill for an hour also. I was a bit skeptical that this drink would taste any good because of geography and it being February I have no idea what fresh fruit looks or tastes like. I was completely wrong, it was DELICIOUS and refreshing. Not quite as refreshing as a Fresca (but what is?), I’m now thinking about selling off any good organs I have left to move to Hawaii so I can get these fruits fresh and make this my new go to drink instead of soft drinks. The product did what it was intended to do though and that was INFUSE.
So what did I make of the FabFitFun water infuser, it does what it is supposed to do. It infuses, this is not reinventing the wheel by any means, but I look forward to this summer when I can actually obtain fresh fruit in my area (alas Hawaii will probably have to wait) . I now have the coolest water bottle in the world, and if I feel like getting kinky with my water I can add fruit, veggies, peppermint, lemon (only a slice!), basically anything I want and I’m confident I will get the desired taste. This water bottle is part of the winter box package at FabFitFun, I would highly recommend to anybody that is tired of “boring” water.
