Blog: Chris Brook-CarterWoe upon Woe-ter

Pity poor Dasani. If it’s not one thing, it’s another. Pilloried in the British media, then forced to pull its entire stock after potential cancer scares, before finally ruling out returning to the UK altogether. What else can go wrong? Well…

In a taste test last week, Dasani came bottom of 13 waters in a blind tasting. The water was described by food and drink critic Egon Ronay as “exceptionally dull.”

And who was second worst? Why, it was Thames Water… the supplier of Dasani’s bottling plant in Kent.

Taxi for Mr Dasani?
