Food Grade Scent Water Flavor Pods and Bottles: Sipperment

I Tried Alix Earle's Favorite Water Bottle, and I Get the Hype

My introduction to the Air Up water bottle followed a well-trodden path of modern discovery – TikTok. What began as a single video on my "For You Page" (FYP) quickly evolved into a captivating trend. Even the famous Alix Earle joined the movement, sharing in a sponsored TikTok that the Air Up bottle miraculously transformed her from "the worst at drinking water" to "Miss Hydration." Astonishingly, she's not alone in her enthusiasm; even Kim Kardashian herself was spotted with an Air Up water bottle during a jog on a Peloton Tread, alongside Ashton Kutcher and instructor Robin Arzón.

What makes this bottle so intriguing? It reimagines the way we add flavor to water. Instead of directly infusing water with a flavor booster, the Air Up introduces "flavor pods" that elegantly slip over the mouthpiece. As you sip, your senses are treated to subtle aromatic cues – a clever illusion that convinces you that you're sipping on flavored water.

As someone who still relishes her La Croix, occasionally downing a six-pack in a day, I've had moments of contemplation about the enigmatic "natural flavorings" lurking in certain canned seltzers. Air Up seemed almost too good to be true. So when the brand extended an invitation to explore their bottle, I enthusiastically embraced the opportunity to embark on this "sniff 'n' sip" adventure.

What I Like About the Air Up Water Bottle

Let's start with the basics – the bottle itself. I opted for a stylish pink hue (the same as Alix Earle's). Crafted from durable frosted plastic (the Air Up website proudly labels it as BPA-free Tritan), it sports a rubber mouthpiece that connects to the straw and a handy cap for on-the-go sipping. The straw offers robust suction, ensuring you can savor every last drop, while the wide mouth simplifies cleaning.

But, of course, the standout feature is the scent. Can it genuinely elevate your water-drinking experience?

What's Worth Noting About the Air Up Water Bottle

Mastering the art of using the flavor pods and adapting to the air bubbles they create during activation did take me some time. Although these bubbles are an intentional part of the experience, they might initially create the sensation of an uneven water flow, especially when enjoying seltzer. However, after a day or so, I adjusted to it and could fully enjoy my "flavored" water. Some flavors appealed to me more than others (lemon was delightful; basil was almost too intense), but each pod delivered a bold taste.

It's worth noting that this water bottle falls on the pricier side of the spectrum. The most affordable starter kit, including a bottle and a pack of three flavor pods, comes in at around $40. Opt for a fancier color and flavor, and the total cost could reach $50. Subsequent three-packs of pods are priced at $8 each. While it's certainly a more budget-conscious choice than a daily six-pack of La Croix, it's still an expense to consider.

Additionally, the pods are constructed from plastic, which might raise environmental concerns for some water aficionados. However, Air Up emphasizes that the pods' exteriors consist of recyclable materials, while the interiors are made from polyester. Although the pods themselves aren't reusable, Air Up underscores that refilling their water bottle can help reduce the number of single-use plastic water bottles contributing to landfills.
