Wait, isn’t this juice?
Have you ever wondered what the next step from water to juice was?
Us neither, and yet apparently we’re being shown.
From the makers of coconut water, or the distributors anyway, comes a new fad: watermelon water.
This one is a bit confusing, simply because watermelon water is a bit of a lie as to what it means.
Watermelon is a fruit made mostly of water, and so when you cold press it and crush it down, it essentially turns to water.
Most people in the real world wouldn’t call this “water”, though, referring to it by its correct name of “juice”, which is basically what watermelon water is: watermelon juice, except with enough preservatives to sell it in stores so it doesn’t go off quickly, which watermelon juice tends to.
In fact, if you open it up and pour yourself a glass, it’s hard not to see how this is “juice” and not “water”, except for the argument that liquids are generally always water based, and so watermelon water is still technically right.
Here’s thing, though: we don’t care.
Do you have any idea how difficult it is to find watermelon juice in stores? You normally have to go to a juice bar, and most of the time, the watermelon they give you is so bad, you have to ask for more.
Normally, the best watermelon juice you can get involves you buying a watermelon yourself, slicing it up, throwing it in a blender, and serving in a chilled glass.
And now you can buy it on store shelves.
Is it the same? Not really, but we’ll take it, because now we can get it anytime, even if it is a little expensive at $7 per litre. Yikes.
