TheDailyMeal: What You Didn't Know About Your Bottled Water

2 of 10

1. Poland Spring

Does it list its treatment process: Yes
The website redirects to the Nestlé Waters website, with detailed reports on its spring water "10 step quality process" for treatment.

Does it list its sources: Yes
The website gives a little blurb on finding sources, etc., etc. But the label on our bottled gives a laundry list of sources that the water came from: Clear Spring, Hollis, Maine; Evergreen Spring, Fryeburg, Maine; and the list goes on. The Nestlé Waters website says that Nestlé waters come from 50 springs, but doesn’t say where the springs are.

Does it list its water quality analysis: Sort of
A quick Google search (we couldn’t find a link on the website) brought us to a PDF with the quality report from 2010.

How does it taste: Number one out of 10, with a score of 81.75
One very anti-bottled water tester remarked after the taste test that the only bottled water she bought was Poland Spring because of the price — and now we can take a note from her. It wasn't a hit with everyone (two thought it was tap water, one believed it was bathroom faucet water) but others said it was clean, smooth, and simple.
