Dancing Spot Water Taste Test Dancing Spot
November 2001

We conducted a blind taste test of five different waters. Each student ranked the five waters from Best Taste to Worst Taste. Most students predicted they would prefer Iceland Spring water, followed by Room 17 water, Evian and Hawaii water, and that distilled water would be the least favorite. Here is a summary of our results.

We were surprised that we liked the water from Hawaii the least.
