Hint Awarded “Best Enhanced Water” in Global Competition


@@img1 Mexico City – September 13, 2007 – Global packaging magazine, bottledwaterworld, announced this evening the selection of Hint® Water as “Best Enhanced Water”.  The competition included a record number of entries, many from the world’s most recognized beverage brands.

Headquartered in the U.K., bottledwaterworld is the only global business magazine for the packaged water industry. Published six times a year, it provides essential analysis of bottled water segments and businesses, including market trends, company reports and product launches as well as the latest technical and packaging developments.

Previously selected as best flavored water by Health magazine, Hint® Water is light, refreshing and never sweet.  As a flood of energy drinks and functional beverages blanket the market with reinvented sodas and fruit punches, Hint arrives with a simple solution – water that just tastes better.tm  Natural essences infused into pure water deliver on the promise of Hint’s outstanding packaging – refreshing great taste without all the junk. 

Thirsting for a simple beverage that her whole family could enjoy, Hint founder Kara Goldin rediscovered water with a slice of fresh fruit.  “I had searched the grocery store for something I could feel good about, but reading the labels I had to ask myself ‘Who needs all this junk?’” With a few friends and husband Theo, Kara launched Hint while pregnant with her fourth child.  Two years later, their signature product is enjoyed around the country as much for its great taste as the fact that it has no sugar, no sweeteners and no preservatives.

Recently offered a juice box, the Goldins’ two year old replied “Drink Water, Not Sugar.®”
