      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      fantastic water, highly recommended.

      Vittel is a fantastic mineral water, it does what it says on the tin, and isn't trying to be to in your face and over the top like drench. No stupid slogans or paragraphs about the importance of hydration on the label, its water, its in a bottle and thats it. Perfect.

      I buy vittel in many shapes and sizes of which you can see from the picture. The most common of which is the 500ml bottle widely available in newsagents and places like Makro. You can get bigger bottles but i find the plastic is thinner on these and they are a nightmare to lug around. The 1L bottles have a sports cap and that's great for endurance sports when you have no access to water but i would recommend the smaller bottles if you are near places where you can buy more. That unnecessary weight in your bag when hiking is like having a house brick dragging you down. I have not yet seen a 500ml sports cap bottle and think this is the only room for improvement in future for vittel products.

      The main water has no real taste and the minerals are very healthy for you although i have experienced no effect from just drinking out on a walk. I suppose if you do more strenuous athletic sports this might be of great benefit to you. Their flavoured water has a clear and easy to taste flavour, its not to extreme and not unnoticeable so i think this is a perfect balance, unless you're used to Robinson's drinks in which case these are very bland compared to their fruit juices. They are in a different league and would compare.

      The water is neither hard nor soft, its about right. Using it to wash your hair with shampoo is fine, i wouldn't recommend it but when you're camping you get desperate.

      These are reasonably priced, come in a wide variety of sizes, have an interesting mountain pattern on the bottle (Something unique to Vittel water) and they taste just like they should, the water is bland and the flavoured water is not strong but equally not weak. This is a perfect balance and the way bottled water should be. They also have a sports cap on the 1L which i handy but i'd like to see this on the smaller ones including the flavoured waters.

      Highly recommended

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Other brands are better value for money

        -Introduction-

        Vittel is a french brand owned by Nestle. Vittel bottled water is a mineral water. They come in many different sizes and bottle types. Here I will be reviewing the smallest 33cl bottle, which can be picked up in most convenience shops/train stations/kiosks etc.

        Vittel is the water of the London Marathon, so I thought I would give it a go! I dont regularly buy bottled water but I was rushing out and about in Exeter and needed a drink. This was the only bottle I could find in a vending machine. I think it was 60p.

        -Positives-

        For a quick drink on the go, this small bottle means you dont have a half-filled, semi-warm water bottle clogging up your handbag all day. You can drink all of it and go.

        It has a normal screw top, I don't really like 'sports' caps, I can't seem to drink out of them in a ladylike way. These are simple, screw off the lid and drink. Great!

        I hate bottled water with a taste, this water is literally tasteless. I concede this could be taken as a negative, but it's opinion I guess!

        -Negatives-

        It says 'mineral water' but does not state where it is from, I like the other brands with a picture or map of where the water is from.

        The bottle is too small really to be reused. Not great for the environment.

        -Conclusion-

        Great for on the go, but not for regular use.

          Wow. Vittel water!

          Over the past few days I have been drinking quite a lot of water as it was recommended to me from the doctor. Deciding that I didn't really want to take tap water to work I bought a few bottles of evian and a few bottles of vittel, just to see which one I liked the most!

          Vittel is natural mineral water from Bonne Source. It is branded by Nestle who are a well known company throughout the world. I do trust this brand quite a lot as I love their food too! It is also the official supplier to the flora London Marathon too!

          Vittel water is very popular because it is very natural and from a good source. If you store it in a cool and dry place it is guaranteed to taste very fresh and revitalising.

          I love this water because it is extremely refreshing and it has quite a distinctive taste. When I take a mouthful, I can feel the cool fresh sensation which is amazing.

          This water is sold all over the world in various different places. I tend to buy this from the chilled cabinets in Tesco. I bought a 75cl bottle and it cost me 80p which I thought was an absolute bargain.

          Considering you are meant to drink a couple of litres a day, this is the brand I would have. It contains a high percentage of Calcium and other nutrients.

          I would recommend this to absolutely everyone. It is so delightful, very helpful when you are on the go and also very revitalising. This is one to have!

          Disadvantages

          other bottles are better value for money

          I bought my bottle of Vittel water from tesco - the week i got it it was on offer and i normally like to take a bottle of water to work with me each day. As far as the water goes it tasted fine, i really can't tell the difference between different types of bottles.

          However my mine focus is the packaging. I like to have a bottle that i can reuse and love to have a sports lid on just for the easy of drinking and so i dont spill my drink while i work at my desk.

          Unfortunetly the vittel bottle lids are not upto standard. Firstly they are difficult to open by having this little plastic tab to pull. Once you get into the bottle the lid more often than not snaps off. This makes it useless to carry in your bag as the drink will just leak everywhere.

          To be honest if you cant taste the difference between water then try a different brand so you are saved the hassel and embarasment of trying to open the bottle and only for it all to spill out.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          I love it, but I just can' buy it anymore.

          This was my favourite water! I only drink certain bottled water, I suffer from health problems which seem aggravated by the different PH in water, so I choose mine carefully.

          Vittel was always my favourite, it has a smooth, clean taste. Some people I know say water tastes all the same, but I like to think of myself as a water connoisseur! So yes I loved Vittel, but not the bottles it comes in, they are always ridiculously hard to open, you have to pull back a tiny plastic tab and twist and pull it off, which is really hard. And then it takes brute force to lift the sports cap - I have resorted to biting it on more than one occasion and on others have pulled so hard I hit myself in the face!

          And they are a little expensive too, I used to buy 2 for 1.75! But my main annoyance is the scarcity of them! I can't find them anywhere anymore, I used to get them at Tesco but they stopped selling them. I tried Evian and Volvic, but they aren't the same, so I've resorted to Tesco's own Scottish mineral water, which is actually quite nice, but not as good as my Vittel.
