    I prefer Georgia Mountain Water.

    Dasani and Aquafina taste like plastic to me, while GMW tastes like nothing.

    Plus, GMW is from a spring here in North Georgia, while the other two are simply from municipal water lines. (Although the Pepsi/Coke brands do have purification and minerals added.)

    I've never had Daisini. We have a big Brita pitcher here that filters our drinking water. I love that thing!

    I have never actively compared the two. From what I recall, they are very similar in taste.

    The tap is good enough for me. I have a lot of trouble paying premium for water.

    I've tried both, and I have to say Aquafina.

    The only water worth paying for is Aberfoyle.

    Those guys just repackage tap water and sell it to yuppies. I cut out the middleman and get my water straight from the source.

    I have a water filter at home and it provides the best-tasting water ever!

    Dasani.

    In my travels, water has a taste whether it be good or bad.

    In my opinion, Dasani has the "good" taste and Aquafina doesn't taste like anything. It's just wet and not worth paying for ... but what water is worth more than the cost of gasoline? Excuse me, they wrap the free water in $1.50 worth of packaging, marketing and PROFIT ..... and I still buy it.

    Do you realize that both products are merely filtered water from the local municipalaity serving the closest bottling facility?

    Well... whatever they're made from and however they are made, between the two I would definitely pick Dasani. Aquafina usually has "mediciney" overtones to it.

    When I'm close to home & don't need to pay extravagant prices for drinking water, I'll stick to the water from my GE filtration system -- damn good water!
