My love affair with sparkling water started six years ago. I was looking for something tasty and effervescent to help me curb my diet soda consumption, so I started trying different seltzer brands. After sampling several duds, I found my favorite: Polar Seltzer, a creative brand with beautifully designed labels and delicious flavor combinations.
When I started working for the ATK Reviews team, I was thrilled to find that our sparkling water taste test had the same results as my personal experimentation: Polar Original Seltzer took the crown. (Use their location finder to see where it's sold near you.)
Every six months, Polar releases a slate of limited-edition seasonal flavors with fun, gorgeous label designs and unique flavor pairings. Since Polar is our winning brand, I gave the latest releases a taste, taking careful note of my favorite and least favorite flavor factors while searching for my one, true seltzer of the summer.
