Pur Aqua Unsweetened Blackberry Sparkling Water

I try to avoid soda – or you can call it pop, depending on where you live – because of its high sugar content. I also don’t care for beverages containing artificial sweeteners. So when I saw Aldi offering unsweetened flavored sparkling water as a Special Buy, I thought it might be a fun, different thing to try and picked up a case.

This Pur Aqua Fizzy Fruit Unsweetened Blackberry Sparkling Water came in a cardboard carrying case with four 12-ounce glass bottles. The metal lids screw off but can be rough on the hands, so I used a kitchen towel to cushion my grip.

The water contains zero calories, and the ingredients list is straightforward and simple: carbonated water and natural flavor.

I was looking forward to sampling this sparkling water, but it ended up having only a hint of fruit flavor and tasted slightly bitter. I was done after one bottle, but interestingly, one of my young daughters enjoyed it. I don’t typically drink sparkling water, so I’m unsure if what we tried is typical. I probably won’t be buying it again, though.

The Verdict:

Pur Aqua Fizzy Fruit Unsweetened Blackberry Sparkling Water has plenty of carbonation and contains no added sugar or artificial sweeteners, but it has very little fruit flavor.

  1. I LOVE the PurAqua Essence Blackberry and Leom waters. I dont want sweet or fizz. My problem is it was a trial thing at my Aldi store and now they arent carrying it. Help!! I need to buy this and cant find it!!

    • I love the water too, not the fizz just regular for me. I bought the last they had at a store by me and now Everytime in an Aldis store I’m on the hunt!
      What can we do to get this back?

  2. Please bring back the regular organic water! Any flavors will do I’m not picky. I will buy it all! Lol.

  3. I love this water please keep it in your store I can’t fines it nowhere else please keep it on the shelf Aldis I buy it every week!!!##

  4. I just tried the PurAqua Belle Vie Bold Blackberry Cucumber sparkling water from Aldi. I love it. I hope they keep it stocked so I can continue to buy it.

  5. I don’t like anything “sparkling” sad I wish I could drink it because that’s all everyone has out.
    That’s why I loved the flavored water when they had it. Hint water is so good but so expensive.

  6. Join me to the growing list of huge fans of the Pur Aqua Essence water. Not the fizzy kind. The plain, clean kind that tastes like Hint. I’ve been searching all the Aldi stores in a 25 mile radius as I come across them and none of them have any. If I ever run into a store that does I’m going to buy every single bottle they have.

    People love Hint but it is pricey. Your water is just as good and more reasonably priced. Why hesitate to keep it in stock as a regular item?

  7. We’re not Aldi, but you can contact them here: https://www.aldi.us/en/about-aldi/contact-us/
