Faint water


People send your poor old correspondent samples sometimes. Squeak, squeak, guinea pig (yes, the pix is a hamster—good rodent identification!).

And the people across the street had their foreclosure-homeless rabbit wards in the yard—must be the day for it. We have two foreclosure-homeless cats.

Anyhow, the first thing I tried was Wings of Nature bars. Mind you, I am not a bar person, meaning the granola type. These come in Cranberry Crunch, Almond Raisin, Espresso. I like java—the Espresso was pretty good, very chewy, chock full of health bits, vegan, dairy-free, low glycemic…all that.

My daughter tried the Cranberry Crunch and pronounced it very edible—“I like cranberries,” she remarked. Go to wings-of-nature.com for more info.

HINT is water—with a taste. No cals, no nothing in it. The Blackberry, the flavor I liked, is available at Starbucks.

HINT also comes in Watermelon, Honeydew, Hibiscus, Mango-Grapefruit, Pomegranate, Cucumber…and some others. Check out www.drinkHINT.com. Cucumber?

HINT was OK—but I have to say it was like I had put water in a glass that had had soda in it. Barely a flavor.

Thus the name, I gather.
