Water from Sweden and California was voted: best water in a recent international test.
"Each sample is weighed on six points: appearance, odor, flavor, mouth feel, aftertaste and overall impression." How can a water have appearance, considering that all water good enough to even test must be crystal clear?
But here's the odd thing: "Five countries, 25 states and the District of Columbia were represented in the contest." Not very representative, is it?
Another odd thing, The Star Online says: "Ice Mist bottled water from Morarp, Sweden and tap water from Desert Hot Springs, California, were ruled the best in the world"; but USATODAY.com says: "Tap water from Desert Hot Springs, Calif., was ruled the best in the world"
