norwegian water

Sorry I have been a bad blogger as of late. There just hasn’t been much blog fodder around here. Knitting on the saddle shoulder Noro sweater continues, but the pattern I created with my software? It calls for the sleeves to be sewn to the sweater rather than a seamless, in-the-round job. I am wondering how this will work out. Any thoughts out there?
Today I stopped by the little natural foods store in my parents’ neighborhood (my mother took off for Japan again, which means I am now on Dad Watch), and I made this impulse purchase:

It’s water! Imported all the way from Norway! In a sleek glass bottle! For $2.95! Would you like to know what it tastes like? Yup, water. Now please excuse me while I go peel the “SUCKER” sticker off the back of my raincoat (actually, maybe I should just add “AND PROUD OF IT” to the sticker?).

    LOL, hey it is a cool bottle and water is water, but one is so much cooler if they drink water in cool bottles (at least that is what I tell myself because I buy every funky looking water bottle around, I figure if they look neat I will more likely drink them instead of tossing half filled into the bottom of the cars wheel well)

    you are definitely proud of it bee-yatch. be gullible with pride. 🙂

    Do you remember Orbitz? The drinks that had the little bits of gelatin floating inside them? Yeah, I drank a couple of those before I finally had to admit to myself that they were just too nasty. So I just started collecting them. What can I say, I’m a sucker for weird, floaty things… And, sadly, every other gimicky thing in creation.
    You’re in good company, girl.

    Cool bottle though!

    even the name is slick. voss.

    Ooh I worked at a place that stocked those and it was always an extra special treat when the room attendants would slip me one. water! in a tubed glass bottle!
    Though Voss was just reviewed in a water taste test article in TimeOutChicago & didnt fare so well I think. Whatever, obviously waters water.

  7. Kathy says:

    You could reuse the cool glass bottle and be extra hip all the time…all for the low price of $2.95.

  8. Nichola says:

    It’s a cool bottle though!

    I SO would have bought that! I love the bottle – and I agree that I would refill that thing forever. I have a friend who chastises me for spending money for water, especially if it’s a “branded” water. He’s learned to ask…”Is that really what’s in there?” My answer usually is…”It was when I bought it, but not anymore!”

    Yours is $2.95? The same bottle would cost you $5 in New York in a store, and $10-$12 in a restaurant.

  11. lynette says:

    it costs more in chicago. my husband and i stayed at the W hotel for our anniversary and the had the water in the room for $8. i wasn’t that thirsty. 😉

    I buy that water from time to time because I hate drinking water out of plastic bottles. Glass is much more recyclable and doesn’t leave that icky plastic taste in the water!
    Although once I had an empty Voss bottle rattling around in my car for a few weeks and it was very noisy! But that’s just me being lazy.

  13. CJ says:

    They sell that brand at dance clubs because the bottle looks nifty.

  14. sarah says:

    Look!! There you are!!

  15. Wanda says:

    Yes, but I like the glass bottle aspect of it and it’s pretty cool. If you bought it all the time, then maybe I might call you a sucker. But you’ve got a cool glass as a nifty present for afterwards!

  16. amy in az says:

    I too was dupped by the VOSS fancy water. I used to reuse the bottle at work just to look trendy! beat the system, reuse the botte!

  17. justJENN says:

    You mean like how EVIAN is naive spelled backwards?

  18. susanne says:

    stick that sucker sticker on me cause i was duped into buying it too. i’m a sucker for packaging.

  19. holly says:

    I saw in a sales flyer for one of our local markets, a Pinot Grigio wine in exactly the same bottle. I thought it was weird, it kind of looks to me like a shampoo bottle. Seems like it was called Voga? Something with a V.

  20. Christiane says:

    Yep, you’re definitely not the only sucker. I’ve shelled out $4 for that slick bottle myself.

  21. Estelle says:

    But the (glass?) bottle looks so nice!!

  22. stace says:

    haven’t seen it yet, but thanks for the heads up!

  23. happy spider says:

    you know Evian is niave backwards right? just sayin’…

  24. Marg says:

    Kewl. I had a friend in highschool who was from Voss – a little town a bit north of Bergen. I’ll have to look out for the stuff …. for the bottle alone. 😉

  25. Patti says:

    I actually ordered water in a restaurant in Philly once and that’s what they gave me. I think they charged $5.00 for it. It was good water – but I don’t know if it was worth $5.00 – I should have kept the bottle – then it would have been worth it 🙂

  26. MJ says:

    Goes to show how packaging can influence a buyer! I remember Orbitz too, those nasty bits of gel have nothing on boba.
    Yum, boba!

    Water from one well at Voss is supposed to have kind of Viagra-effect my boyfriend tells me 😆 It’s kind of funny though that you drink water from a place close to where I live 😉
