Metromint: The Non-Caloric
Chocolate Mint Treat

CAPSULE REPORT: Metromint Peppermint water launched in 2004. People who love a vibrant, minty water are fans. The company then developed additional flavors with less mint intensity to appeal to a broader market, and last year introduced a game-changer: Metromint Chocolate Mint.

Made with cocoa essence and real mint, this is a water any chocolate lover will want by the case. With zero calories, it fills the need for a chocolate treat; once you’ve tasted it, you’re hooked. (In fact, at this moment it’s sold out on the Metromint website due to holiday demand, but you can still order it; more will be in stock soon.)

Chocolatemint is one of a mint water family that includes Cherrymint, Lemonmint, Orangemint, the original Peppermint, and Spearmint. Everyone from mintaholics to those who like just a bit of mint in their water will find flavors to love.

Metromint is great for gift-giving to help a friend or family member start—or stay on—a calorie-controlled diet. You can send a four-pack, a six-pack or, for just $38 and free shipping, a case.

The Metromint Mint Water Family

When Metromint was introduced in 2004, a “chill factor” came into bottled water. The original Peppermint had—and has—a very brisk level of minty chill.

Mint fans loved it; others found it too minty. Listening to consumer feedback, the company developed all of the five subsequent flavors with different levels of “chill factor,” designated on the front of the bottle. The original Peppermint stands at the highest level of chill, -9° “supercool”; the least minty, Chocolatemint, is designated -2° or “quietly cool.”

If the original Peppermint had too much of a chill for you, try another flavor: The five newer options have a less minty “whoosh.” And by the way, the colder the water is, the more pronounced the mintiness.

All of the flavors are made from purified water, fresh mint and the particular flavor essence: cherry, cocoa, lemon, orange, peppermint or spearmint.
