The Best and Worst Seltzers, Ranked

Are you trying to kick a soda addiction, but you just can’t imagine life without something sweet to sip throughout the day? You should consider switching to seltzer (aka sparkling water), which has the fizz and the sweetness of your favorite cola without as much sugar and caffeine.

We had companies send us their low- to no-calorie sparkling waters. We sipped all 42 flavors and, after a few pee breaks, we ranked ‘em. Here are the 10 worst, and the 10 best ranked on a scale of 1 to 10, along with the first-taste reactions from MH staffers. Sorry to all you La Croix fans out there — there’s none on either list.

10. Voss Lime Mint (3.6 out of 10)
