I ordered a trial bottle, mentioned it to my son and he knew exactly what it was due to a student having one in his class. I ordered another bottle before my trial arrived, I knew that he would take mine. We both enjoy our Cirkul!

I'm saving money because I bring my bottle to restaurants when I go out to eat, I opt for flavored water rather than a soda. I haven't opened a Coke in the pantry since receiving the bottle.

I have a hard time with plain water, i'll add lemon or other flavorings to it, but this a great because I just fill and sip...and it tastes delicious! Awesomeness!

Pros:

I'm drinking water, saving money, the flavors are nice, I can adjust sweetness

Cons:

It leaks a few drops of water, but usually only when I leave water in the chamber. It's just water, no biggie.

The little leak/drips can be fixed by lining up the groves on the inside of the bottle then pushing down to click in place. Then tighten by screwing it in,. Only remove the cartridge to add water, not the entire top.

If you suck the rest of the water out as you tip the bottle back down once you take a sip it will prevent the leaking. Water gets trapped in the cartridge which is why it leaks.

as a person that works outside i need to be hydrated 24/7 on top of the 40 pound rucksack and the countless canteens water gets to be quite boring. cirkul has helped me drink even more and actually be exited to drink water. the packages can come broken i lost 2 flavors out of 5 i had ordered due to the small canister being broken from either rough handling or not fully sealed at the manufacture. other than that great price and great flavors

Pros:

multiple flavors healthy and great to use

Cons:

cartridges come broken and small hassle with customer service

Beside that the product was a bit high priced I would have continued to use them but when they take my money and refuse to give it back i would never use them again

Pros:

Some of Flavors are very good

Cons:

They make a mistake and refuse to make it right. They will ignore your messages and there is no way to contact someone personally. no refund

I love this product! Yes its not perfect, sometimes there is a little but of leakage but nothing crazy and ultimately its WATER so it wont kill you! I have never had my bottle "spit at me" as some have said but maybe i have just been lucky. Some of the complaints i have heard are headaches, cost, customer service and "flavor intensity". Headaches....its sucralose (Splenda) in many of the flavors. This can and does cause headaches for some people. I feel blaming this on the manufacturer is unfair. If you have an artificial sweetener intolerance then yes you may get headaches. Cirkul has many options without the sucralose to relieve this possibility. As far as cost, that's a personal choice. You get what you pay for and choose what you pay for. This is not a necessity and noone is forcing you to buy it so if you think it costs too much, then don't buy it. Keep in mind the intent is to not "only" drink the flavoring but also alternate with just water. Supply and demand, enough said on that. Customer service, i havent had any issues with this at all, as a matter of fact it appeared someone had stolen the bottle from our shipment and they quickly replaced it with no fuss. The last item, falvor intensity, seems like an especially silly complaint. "10 is too strong, 1 tastes like water", really? Thats kind of the concept, find something in between that you like is sort of the point! Bottom line is its a unique product with some nice benefits if you choose to use it, and if you dont the world and life will still continue to move forward.

Pros:

Nice selection of flavors, unique concept, good customer service, love the adjustable strength

Cons:

Leakage at times, a little pricey but manageable

I love what you said I agree with you 100 percent one thing I would like to add is I also haven't had any issues with customer service. One of the things is people are complaining about is getting your money back. When you all started your trial I can guarantee you knew if you liked it within the first week so if you called customer and couldnt get ahold of them to cancel easiest thing is to put a stop payment on your card or at your bank. Great review

Yes! I agree with you 100% I can't believe some of the complaints people are saying. The flavor setting one got me the most. Of course it's going to be super strong at 10 and weak at 1 lol. As for the complaints about the subscription, they are one of the good companies in that you don't HAVE to call them to cancel. They have the simple option on your account online to cancel. No contact necessary. I HATE when companies make you call them to cancel, so this was a huge plus for me. Not that I plan on cancelling anytime soon. My husband and I got our first bottles on Saturday and we are hooked! Love them and I'm finally drinking water. ^_^

This bottle is really awesome and innovative. I’m super excited to try the coffee flavors they recently released! I mostly enjoy the 3rd setting. Great taste and lasts longer! I’m conscious of sugar intake so the stevia flavors are the perfect option.

Pros:

Easily customizable flavoring.

Delicious stevia flavors!

Fun brand (seriously check their Facebook. Hilarious customer interactions)

Cons:

Labels on the cartridges would make it easier for switching out flavors. They said they‘re working on that so that’s great!

I was skeptical about Cirkul at first because I've had bad experiences ordering things from Facebook/Instagram but I'm so happy I tried it. I really like that you're able to increase and decrease the flavor every time you drink if you want and I love that you can turn the flavor off and just drink plain water. For the people that complain about cost I thought the same thing in the beginning until I looked at my bank account. I would spend $4-$10 a day on beverages between sodas, teas and Starbucks, I get 16 cartridges a month for $49 so I'm saving way more than I was before. Since I've cut out soda completely I feel like I can dial down the flavor so they end up lasting longer. I'm glad they don't accept returned product. I don't want them sending me stuff that's been in the mail back and forth multiple times. It is a subscription service which I actually really enjoy. I forgot to change my flavors one month and the customer service guy was able to fix it for me. I've been using it for about 5 months and don't plan on stopping any time soon. One request -PLEASE get the metal bottles back. I like the sleeves but I definitely want a metal bottle :)

Pros:

easy to hydrate on the go, cheaper than buying bottled beverages daily

Cons:

none really just still waiting for the metal bottle to be back in stock

Cirkul has been really revolutionary for my water drinking. I'm an avid consumer of water, but we all need a change every now and then. Instead of resorting to juices, sugary drinks, soda, etc. as a change of pace drink every so often, I'm always using my circle and just adjusting the flavor spectrum depending on my current mode. This keeps me even more hydrated than previously, and satisfies my different flavor cravings as well - not too even mention the amount of delicious flavors you have to choose from! It's real a "chore" (sarcasm) choosing a flavor to go with daily. I also find the bottles themselves very conducive to a wide range of activities ranging from just walking to work to going for a run because the bottle design is such that it is exceptionally easy to carry. I have multiple bottles across many different locations (home, work, car, golf bag, etc) and cannot recommend this product enough. I'm even getting my family/extended family involved and they love it as well! Definitely buy and enjoy!

Pros:

Great flavors, easy carry, simple to use

Cons:

So many flavors to choose from!

I love it so far. I do think the scale of flavor is not very good though. 1 tastes no different than water. and 10 is like straight up just drink the flavoring why don't you. Also its not clear how long these are supposed to last? I mean clearly less flavor last longer and more flavor will be less.

Pros:

Great water bottle. Excellent idea! I love the flavor choices and that I can choose the flavor intensity.

Cons:

Some cartridges the mouth piece leaks. Out of the 4 I have opened so far 2 leak.

The product proved to be faulty and questionable in terms of quality and caused nausea. I would have ceased use and cancelled but cirkuls customer service made that quite difficult. Their website happened to not process attempted cancellations until it was too late. The bottle without the flavorings is useless as it leaks and spits water in one's face. I tried to connect and resolve the issue but they refused to refund the product I literally cannot consume and sent it anyways. I advise caution in trying their product and wish anyone luck who has the misfortune of dealing with their customer service. The whole ordeal was disappointing as the product seemed really great but fell short to say the least. Worst company, 2018.

Pros:

Appears to be a great product but..

Cons:

Leaks, spews water from spigot, doesn't filter h20, health concerns

I agree, the customer service is horrible. They sent me 2 shipments in the same week and charged me for both. When I emailed to get it sorted out, they told me they'll just postpone my next order. When I told them that wasn't ok, they stopped responding to me and blocked me email.

company says a pro is that they reduce waste. REALLY?? not sure what product you are using.

this is kind of messed up since you really should only be selling the flavor pouches to your customers. Less production, packing, and would allow for a much higher profit margin. And this would ACTUALLY reduce waste.

Pros:

great concept, most flavors are really

Cons:

some flavors are not concentrated enough so you have to dial high using dial fast ie: wasting your

This product is terrible. They suck you in for the free try and make you pay 5 dollars for shipping. Cool however I went to cancel my subscription no where on the website to do that. No customer service number. They charged my card 27 dollars after I asked them to cancel it before the product shipped. Then they said sorry we can’t refund you because the product shipped. Even though I requested the product to be cancelled before it Shipped. It magically shipped when. I asked for a refund. I spoke to several people saying I want my money back. Nothing. Never will buy again.

Pros:

Only one or two flavors taste good

Cons:

Water bottle leaks, makes weird noises when drinking, one flavor lasted me one day

I know coming out with new products is trial and error until you finally get it right.....that being said, why hasnt the leaking been resolved by now and before you put your product out for people to buy? Mine leaks so bad and I don’t care how they say to drink it to keep it from leaking, it doesn’t work. So irritating when it drips down my face. I have used mine for 2 full days now refilling it multiple times with water. We shouldn’t be told you have to drink a certain way to keep a cap from leaking all down your face. Until the issue is resolved I will not be buying more.

Pros:

I love the idea that I can choose to just drink water or flavored water

Cons:

It LEAKS

I have always struggled to drink enough water throughout the day and cirkul has been a big help. I don't really like the taste of regular water and their flavor cartridges are delicious with a nice range of options. As someone who doesn't like coffee all the time, their GoSips are a great option for caffeine in the afternoon.

Pros:

Delicious flavors and incredibly convenient when I'm running around on a busy day

Cons:

The lid squeaked but once I followed customer services instructions I was able to fix it

I've been using the Cirkul water bottles since they came out. It's a great way to make sure you're drinking enough water. Having recently moved from New York to Denver, that's particularly important for me right now. It's so nice not having to change bottles all the time or spend a ton of money filling the fridge with flavored drinks every time I go to the grocery store. Customer service was awesome when I had a question... And I'm excited for all of the new flavors coming out!

Pros:

best way to stay hydrated, affordable, amazing flavors, great customer service

Cons:

the first bottle I ever got was a little bit leaky but that problem seems to have been completely fixed

I have replaced every beverage in my life outside of plain water with cirkul and I couldn't be happier. They offer great pricing when you order as much as I do. Even the only con I have listed is being fixed, they are rolling out a new lid that stops all leaking. The customer service at the company has also been too notch, making me feel very welcomed and that I can come to them with any issue I may have and they immediately take care of it. I'm a sipster .

Pros:

A large variety of delicious flavors that all fit different needs in your life. Has tripled my water intake.

Cons:

Lid leaks.

I tried this out several months ago with a high degree of skepticism, I'm not a flavored water guy. Gatorade? Too much sugar. Vitamin water? Hard pass. But with Cirkul, I was shocked. I love the flavors. So much so that I bought bottles for the entire company. Now my biggest problem is keeping track of which bottle is mine (thanks to the new colored insulation sleeves, this problem is largely solved, except when my coworkers want to continually sample my new flavors).

It seems like every time I customize my next shipment, there are new flavors that continue to impress. My first impressions are the coffee flavors could use a little tweaking but as a chef I know coffee is one of the most difficult flavors to replicate. Plus, one guy I work with will only drink the coffee line so they must be doing something right.

I feel like spending a lot of time raving about the fact that you can control your amount of flavor is a little pointless; if you don't like to customize flavors to your taste preferences, you're looking at the wrong product.

One seemingly underrated aspect of Cirkul is the ability to push back your next shipment date. I use my Cirkul every day but forgot it on a recent trip OOT so I simply went to my account and pushed my delivery date back a couple weeks so I could use up my current inventory. Subscription based products are usually pretty sneaky about reminding you of a recurring shipment. With Cirkul, you're notified a couple times before shipment and with ample time to make any changes necessary (change-up in flavors or alter delivery schedule).

Lastly, customer service has been great! I had a cartridge that was damaged, hit up CS and within a few days had a few new ones delivered at no cost to me.

Cirkul- Keep up the great work! You've got a bunch of big fans out here in sunny southern California!

Pros:

Massive selection of flavors that taste amazing

Cirkul clearly has the drive to constantly improve (bottle sleeve, new cap design, etc

Cons:

I'm on my feet all day and drink A LOT of water so I guess I wish the bottle was bigger? I think that's a personal problem tho. LOVE CIRKUL!

The lack of return option for unopened packages even if the packaged has not been delivered. For some reason I could not even cancel the subscription from their page and they told me I could not return the items even if I didn't open them. That is enough for me tell everyone I know to stay clear. Bad business. Just get a water bottle and add some drops of flavoring. Much cheaper and same taste. The bottle does leak, the top doesn't always work so far as flavoring goes either. The flavoring that didn't have any electrolytes actually was fine and I didn't feel sick but the one with electrolytes made me queasy.

Pros:

Cool design, Lots of flavors, Fast Shipping, Subscriptions

Cons:

Poor customer service, Lack of return option, The electrolytes causes some digestive issues for me, Was unable to cancel account via website

The Cirkul system has very much encouraged my drinking of water. The flavors are easier to store than multiple bottles of flavored water. And much more cost efficient. I’ve used them for several months and appreciate them adding new flavors all the time!!

Pros:

I love the varieties of flavors and the ease of changing them out.

Cons:

The too does leak if you don’t make sure it’s on very well. Easy fix :)

Cirkul has great customer service. My communications with them have always been pleasant and they are very helpful.

I love this product. No more water bottles going to the landfill. I hate to drink plain water and will drink anything else to avoid it, but with this product I just fill the bottle and have lots of healthy choices that will keep me drinking. I live in Florida and it is hot here most of the time. You don’t realize how much water you lose just by being in this climate and can feel sluggish if you don’t keep yourself hydrated.

Cirkul is the perfect delivery system. I love it.

Pros:

Great way to consume more water.

Choice of yummy, healthy flavors when you want it.

No need to wash a gunky, container after use.

Cons:

Can’t wait to get the insulated version

Cons:

I would LOVE to see a "half-size" plastic version of the big bottle. My 1 and a half year old loves mine and my husband's Cirkul bottles, but they are too big for her to handle on her own. a kid size bottle would be FANTASTIC!! I would rather have to refill her bottle more often, instead of having to help her with every drink she takes.

I wish there was an option to create your own variety pack. There is always one "sip" i am not a huge fan of in every pack. It would be nice to "create-your-own" Where I had the option to choose which 4 sips i would like to try.

Another "pro" The team at Cirkul gets back to me within 24 hours of me making a request.

I clicked the 1 month option, but I have been using Cirkul for a little under 6 months. The Cirkul team is always adding new flavors.

Pros:

I like the convenience of the cartridges. My husband and I can always find a flavor we both like in a variety pack.

Cons:

Replacing the cartridge on the go is difficult, I have to carry around the old cartridge until I get home to place it in the recycling bin.

Cons:

I tried out the new bottle design and it certainly helped with the dripping, still squeaked however. It certainly helps me and my family get our water intake up and stay hydrated. I have had to contact them on a couple of occasions, it sometimes takes a day or 2 to get back to me but everything has been positively resolved.

Pros:

Great flavors, makes it easier to get my water intake

Cons:

I have used Cirkul for about 6 months now, and I love it! It has changed the way I drink water. I personally use it every day. I have always had problems getting enough water in every day, but this has been a life changer. I am very picky with everything but i love these! The fruit flavors are my favorite, my mom loves the unsweetened tea flavors. My favorite thing is that you can adjust the amout of flavor you get. The dial on the top can go to full flavor or no flavor. I keep mine bettween 3 and 4. this is a good product to even get kids to drink more water. I highly recommend getting the trail one, and I guarantee you will love it!

Pros:

The flavors are amazing! The new colored metal bottles are very convient and nice! They have a wide variety of flavors for everyone

Cons:

The bottles do leak

I have had my Cirkul for around a year. I love it! I have used it religiously. The biggest issue I had with it is that it dripped every time you would drink from it. But they just improved this! I have tired the new sips and not one drop! So far it’s been a great experience.

Pros:

Helps me drink more water Newly designed tips stopped drips! It’s been amazing!!! Amazing customer service Sturdy bottles Great flavors

I'm definitely drinking more water. The little leak/drips can be fixed by lining up the groves on the inside of the bottle then pushing down to click in place. Then tighten by screwing it in,. Only remove the cartridge to add water, not the entire top.

The fact in my opinion is that (had a name brand flavor additive here and removed it as I don’t work for one) pick your flavor additive from the grocery store, and it’s is much cheaper and you get much more by volume. Ice tea was funky tasting as it only came in lemon flavor, and sips leak. Also had issues where out of 8, 1 would not work at all. Subscription just created a mini landfill at home of sips that I never used

Pros:

The taste is good and overall concept is good

Cons:

Expensive, had issues with 1 in 8 or 10 sips didn’t work Some flavors tasted good some funky Leaking leaking leaking problems

I have a hard time just drinking plain water and I hate to admit it but I'm a big soda addict. I've had 1 soda since I got the bottle. I like that it eliminates the extra step of adding flavor powders to the beverage.

Kim HawkinsCirkul saved my LIFE!

I just HAVE to thank Cirkul for changing my life. This is a testimony that actually brings tears to my eyes, honestly. I am about to be 34 years old and I have to admit that my relationship with water my entire life has been practically nonexistent. I used to justify that because my coffee and sweet tea was made using water that I was getting plenty of it. I could NOT bring myself to drink water, no matter what I tried. I'd tried all kinds of flavored waters and those little squirt things of flavor like Mio and whatnot. NOTHING could keep me drinking water. I almost passed up the Cirkul ad I saw while scrolling Facebook but something made me check it out. I saw the free trial and thought I had nothing to lose except a measly $5 and I'd still get a neat bottle out of it if I decided to cancel. After nearly 2 decades of fighting off urinary tract infections, kidney pain, adult acne, even kidney stones once, and a multitude of other health problems that probably could be improved with more water in my body, and then finding nothing that could make drinking water easier for me, I had thought I had given up and just quit trying. But the Cirkul ad stood out to me and I kept feeling a gravitational pull to give it a shot. So I took a chance and I made the order, signing up for the free trial. Since the day I received my Cirkul bottle, I am now drinking NO LESS than 50 ounces of water EVERY DAY.....AND, other than only THREE pots of coffee in the last couple weeks (might even be about 3 weeks now, can't remember the date I received it), I have had nothing, NOTHING except water from my Cirkul bottle! That's 3 pots of coffee (never finishing a full cup or a full pot), NO sodas, NO sweet teas, and 50+ ounces of water daily....over the past 2-3 weeks!!!! Anyone who knows me knows I used to put away 2 to 3 POTS of coffee EVERY DAY and would drink either sweet tea or some kind of soda in between! For me to have only drank a partial pot of coffee 3 days out of 2 to 3 weeks and had nothing else but water besides that is a total miracle! Since drinking Cirkul I have noticed my skin clearing up and becoming softer, my digestion is back on track with no more heartburn or acid reflux, I have so much more energy, my depression has decreased a surprising amount, and I FEEL GREAT! I have a skin condition called Chronic Urticaria which is where every few years or so I randomly will break out in hives all over my body every day and it will last anywhere from a couple weeks to 2 years. I have even realized that suddenly my outbreaks are MUCH smaller and are happening way less frequently, meaning I am not having to take near as much Benadryl nor have I had to use my EpiPen! The changes are purely phenomenal! I knew my body was screwed up because of my lack of water intake but I never would have imagined that it was causing THAT much damage and that I'd see THAT drastic of a change in my health, both physically AND mentally just by cutting out all of the other bad drinks and sticking to water with my Cirkul bottle! This is life changing and quite probably life SAVING for me. My bad habits were definitely trickling down to my two daughters who are 16 and 12 years old and I have always gotten onto them about needing to drink more water, but I realize how difficult it is to make a point to them when I'm not leading by example. So, once I found out how great Cirkul was for me, I immediately went back online and ordered each of my girls their own bottles and bought some extra packs of cartridges because I had a feeling we were going to be going through them quickly! And was I ever right! The girls got their bottles a few days ago and are already on their 2nd cartridges and are IN LOVE with their Cirkul bottles!! I now have my girls drinking water just like I am and if you all knew how bad my 12 year old was with water (very near what I was like), you'd know this, too, is a miracle! Fortunately my husband loves plain water and doesn't have a problem drinking it, otherwise I think we'd go broke trying to supply all 4 of us with enough cartridges every month! Haha! I know this is quite the lengthy testimony but I just HAD to get my message and story out there about how grateful my family and I are for this product. It truly is saving lives, as exaggerated as that may sound to some. But considering the path I was on and as bad as my health has been and then seeing the difference that has been made SOLELY by drinking more water and cutting out the sugary and carbonated drinks, I truly believe that my years of life were being cut short in part to my lack of water intake. This is so much more to me than a bottle with flavor cartridges. This is Life for me! I have to thank everyone who created and who represents Cirkul, from the depths of my SOUL! They have made drinking water fun, exciting and EASY for my girls and me! Since the character limit cuts me off in the PROS and CONS sections, I am listing them here: PROS: Reusable water bottle, choice if plastic or metal insulated, use a flavor cartridges that screw into the top of the lid, each cartridge holds flavor and rather than immediately mixing into the water it combines the flavor directly into your mouth as you take sips from the spout, each cartridge replacement also replaces the spout which means no bacteria buildup inside the spout, each cartridge allows you 10 settings to adjust your own personalized strength of flavor, cartridges contain a lid that can snap over the spout to keep dirt off when stored, lid has a "snap back" feature that keeps the lid out of the way while drinking, cartridges flavor 120 ounces of water when used at the standard setting (#4), can purchase bottle "sleeves" to keep plastic bottles cold longer and protect from bottle sweating, total of 31 flavors to choose from, 21 sweetened with sucralose, 6 sweetened with Stevia, 4 with no sweeteners at all, there are 6 TYPES of "Sips" aka cartridges (LifeSips with 12 flavors enriched with B vitamins, FitSips with 5 flavors containing electrolytes, GoSips with 4 flavors containing caffeine for a boost of energy, TeaSips with 2 flavors and real tea and caffeine, BrewSips with 4 flavors of coffees including caffeine, PureSips with 4 flavors that are fruit essences without sweetness, Variety packs with 9 choices that offer one each of 4 flavors from each category of Sips except the TeaSips where there's only 2 flavors so the variety pack is just 2 cartridges of each flavor, ALL sips are colorless...at least the ones I have tried including the mocha coffee flavor...but a chance I'm wrong and a couple may have color but I don't believe so, outer plastic of cartridges are recyclable, bottles are easy to grip and easy to clean, personally has made water exciting to drink as well as healthy and yummy without taking away from the body's need for water, my girls who hated water like me approve with me and actually CRAVE water now, there is a points system that you can earn FREE products in just by being a customer...2 points per every dollar spent, I can keep going forever!!! CONS: Cannot purchase individual cartridges...have to purchase in preselected packs of 4, $15 per pack can get quite expensive if you drink a lot of water, are an entire household participating and go through cartridges quicker because of your preference for flavors at a higher setting than the suggested standard setting of #4. That's honestly all I can think of for cons!

Good tip, when you notice your sip is losing flavor on setting 5, just turn it up to 6 (you can also go in between numbers!!) When it starts to lose flavor turn it up a little more. It seems the first 2 bottles or so are good on first setting then turn it up a little every bittle to bottle and a half. Even when you have to turn it up to max level you should get another half to full bottle of flavored water from it. If it tastes like water, tilt it like you are taking a sip, but instead close your mouth around it and blow into it a little, the flavor will come back out. That should work. Once that trick stops working and it is all the way up and tastes like water, that means your sip is ready to be changed out for a new one. It can be taken apart and recycled. My whole family drinks cirkul now, myself and hubby and our 6 kids, and everyone has their own colored lid so we dont get the cups mixed up! As well as getting our extended family members to try cirkul and also fall in love with it (sister, mother in law, brother and several friends). Our kids can take them to school and because it is clear water they can drink it in class (a couple teachers and several classmates are also loving the cirkul bottle we gave them!). It come out clear, so no staining! No sugar so I feel good with my kids drinking it. The lids fit on both dr brown sippy cups and contigo water bottles (which we use for our smaller kids since they are easier for little ones to hold but still get yummy cirkul water. Each flavor cartridge (called a sip) will last AT least 6 full 22oz bottles of water when set on a 4/5. Though it lasts longer on some flavors. There are caffeine options for those who want/need a pick me up.

Pros:

SO convenient to drink on the go, just add water and drink! I can dial the flavor in to how I want it every time. No wierd after taste!

Cons:

A few drops might escape from spout every now and then, if you continue to sip the water as you lower your bottle it helps some.

I haven't ordered from this company in over a year. I received a shipment out of the blue recently and they charged my card. I didn't place this order. I attempted to resolve the issue with the Cirkul but they refused to to refund my card. I asked them to provide proof I ordered it but of course they can't please never give them your bank account info.

Pros:

I like the variety in different flavors

Cons:

Their customer service the the worst1

I really really love it, I got my starter kit super cheap and I was hooked. The taste to me is way better than any in store drops or powder flavor add in and the adjust ability per drink is great because if you turn it to far you just turn it back. They have a referral program now which is great too you can send friends a discount but also earn free cartridges. ( drinkcirkul.com/share/Devonne-V1006689332 ) Overall I recommend it just give it a try I havent had anything like it before and I love it.

Pros:

the taste is GREAT

Cons:

My bottle squeaks sometimes, it is a little annoying there is a fix for it but it doesnt seem to last
