Publix Spring Water

So this is what 6 pm looked like yesterday afternoon! If you look closely, you'll see that some of the same trees are in the earlier beautiful sunny day Moylan's Hopsickle photos. Yeah, man, this is a regular occurrence here where I live in South Florida. Let me just throw this out there one more time. Anyone in NC or SC or East-Coast-ish states that aren't frigid in January want to trade for a while? I'm serious!

So my wife went for a run today around noon. I know, that's what I was thinking too! That gave me a short window of opportunity to review Festina Peche. Despite how brutally hot it was, she guilted me into doing a run of my own. Now all of you know my loathing hatred of the "run for no reason". Raquetball, tennis, basketball pick-up-game, running from the cops--those are legit. But for some reason I embarked on a 2.5 mile run. About one mile into the run, my body reminded me that I had fried chicken and macaroni salad for lunch about an hour earlier, and that I had that Festina Peche, too, afterward. I was reminded the rest of the way too, and actually walked quite a bit. So damn hot today!

Then I got home, and the two kids wanted to do the pool. So I took them for three hours. I'd have stayed longer if A. the temperature in the shade wasn't melting me or B. the temperature of the pool was 10 degrees colder.

So I thought it very appropriate to review Publix Spring Water distributed by Publix Supermarkets in Lakeland, Florida. I'm not sure where their secret well or spring hides, but there is probably some mythological creature guarding it. (That's how they differentiate bottled water here in Florida). Anyway, this stuff is like $4 for a 24-pack case of 500mL plastic bottles, so it's cheap. I believe people should use the water from their fridge instead of wasting money and resources on the bottled gimmick in most circumstances. Yes, at the ballgame or tailgating or perhaps the beach, fine. Oh, and for reviews too!!!

Cool and clean, flavorless and refreshing. You know, though, the plastic just ain't doing it for me with keeping it cold. Publix Spring Water pours a transparent colorless color with a high level of light refraction. It took me a little while to get used to the microfiltered and ozonated characteristics that this H2O imparted on my system. Anyway, you're not going to believe that 16.9 oz (500mL) is two servings. Hahahahahahahahahahha. Zero calories and zero everything else and this is two servings?

Drink it!

Beer Drinker Rob said...

Thanks, Phil. I think it was long overdue! LOL.

Amie said...

LOL. Publix Spring Water is pulled from Ginnie Springs up here. :) And, yes, I loved this review.

Beer Drinker Rob said...

Thanks, Amie. I do what I can.

And for those of you not stalking Amie, yet still want to know what "up here" means to start your search for the hidden waters, look for Gainesville on the map.

Nice. Publix rules.

Hey Heath.

Yeah Publix is the best. I am also in love with Wegmans in Ithaca, NY but I guess I'll have to forget about that living down here.

I bet you were surprised to see a review of their spring water though, at least here. Am I right?
