So recently, I have been trying different flavors of vitamin water. I found them all quite tasty, but this isn't what this post is about.The only reason I even bought the zero vitamin waters, is because i wanted to try the flavors. I tried lemonade (zero, called squeezed I believe) and when i opened it to take a drink, around the outside of the lid, was what looked like some kind of orange grease. I didn't want to take my chances, so I didn't drink any of it until I went home. But when I wiped my finger across it, it was very orange, and had a horrible greasy texture. It looks brownish, until you wipe it off, or can see it in good lighting, then it looks orange. I asked my family about it, and they seemed convinced that it was just overheated sugar, or something. I did end up drinking it, after I wiped all of it off, and poured it into a cup. I really enjoyed it, and just thought that I had gotten the dud, and passed it off as nothing. But when I went to go but another vitamin water today, I had the same thing happen to me again. I got another zero water, because once again, i liked the flavor; go go. But when I opened it to take a drink, there it was AGAIN. That same orange grease stuff again. But this time, it was throughout the whole top half of the bottle. The water looked fine (besides the brown stuff in it) smelled fine, and I tasted it, and it tasted fine. But something about that just seems unsettling. The lemonade was totally unaffected, because the stuff didn't touch the water at all, but when I bought this one, it was all over the bottle. The word I thought of was, infested...ya ew. I asked my friends and family who drink vitamin water if they have ever had the same problem, and they all said no. I researched reviews on them, and saw no reviews about it, and looked up pictures of it, and once again saw nothing. I don't think that it is a huge deal, but I really don't know if I should be worried, or not. and PS, if you are wondering why I bought ones with it twice, is because I couldn't see it until i opened it. For the lemonade, I couldn't really see through the lid, and for go go, i couldn't see it until some of it was gone. And really, when I am buying packaged things, should I really have to worry about if I have brown crap in it? I shouldn't have to inspect my vitamin water bottles before buying them. I now know that from now on, I will not but the zeros anymore, because I had no problem with any of the normal ones. It is just really disappointing, because the flavor i bought was really good, but I would rather just not drink it, to drink it and enjoy it, and be sick later.
