REVIEW: Glaceau XXX Vitamin Water

I thought my addiction to clown porn was pretty bad, but my dependency on Glacéau XXX Vitamin Water is worse.

It started out innocently when I saw it at the store and wanted to try it out, because I’ll try anything just once. I thought I’d have some fun and then move on. I didn’t think anything would become of it, because who gets addicted off of something after trying it just one time? But after finishing a bottle, the demons in my head crawled out of my subconsciousness and told me they wanted more. I went back and bought the five bottles left on the shelf and went through those in the next two days.

Then I went to another convenience store and bought them out. Then another. Then another. Quickly, the sweet XXX gold dried up and I haven’t found any since, which has caused me to have withdrawals. Not only have I been shaking and paranoid, there also have been nights when I looked through my recycle bin and pulled out all the XXX bottles to see if any of them had just a drop of that sweet, slightly-watery tasting liquid, that at this point, I would totally suck a dick for, much like other addicts would in my situation.

Maybe now that Coke has bought Glacéau, I have to suck on Coke’s cock to get more of it. I just hope it’s not as thick as a can of Coke or as long as a 20-ounce bottle.

I went multiple times to see my dealer that hangs out at 7-Eleven and asked how I can get more of it, but my dealer, who likes to be called “7-Eleven Manager,” told me that she wished she could get her hands on the stuff too since it sells out pretty fast. She then told me she’s got other Glacéau Vitamin Water flavors that she can sell me that are just as good the XXX, but I told her, “Naw man, I want the real deal. None any of that pussy shit.”

But I may just have to settle for the pussy shit for now, because I’m getting desperate.

O-h-h-h-h, how I miss the feeling I get when those antioxidants are in my bloodstream. It makes me feel so good. The combination of XXX’s sweet taste and molecules that slow or prevent the oxidation of other molecules makes me feel invincible against free radicals. I don’t get that shit with the bitter-tasting broccoli or green tea.

The Glacéau XXX Vitamin Water gets its name from the three antioxidant-containing fruits in it — acai, blueberry, and pomegranate. With a flavor name like XXX, I expected it to taste like ball sack sweat and KY Jelly, but those three fruits form a delicious, sweet fruit punch flavor that I want so badly I would gladly kill for it.

Each bottle has 200 milligrams of sweet, sweet antioxidants, but unfortunately, 150 milligrams of it is Vitamin C, which I can easily get my hands on from any dealer who sells oranges or Sunny Delight. It’s the other 50 milligrams of antioxidants that I want flowing through my bloodstream. Sure, it’s got 13 grams of sugar per serving, but that’s way less than one of my other former addictions, Mountain Dew.

O-h-h-h-h man, I totally need a fix.

Pros: Good fruit punch flavor. Lots of Vitamin C. Seems sweeter than other Vitamin Water flavors. 50 milligrams of antioxidants other than Vitamin C. Some amounts of B Vitamins. Velvet Revolver. Kosher. Electrolytes. Healthier than soda.
Cons: Vitamin C is the most plentiful antioxidant in the bottle, which is plentiful among dealers. Hard to find. My addiction to antioxidants. The demons in my head. Contains less than 1% juice. I would suck Coke’s cock for some. My former addiction to clown porn.

    I’ve never had this XXX stuff, but my god, the dragonfruit flavor rocks my world. Now I have to hunt this flavor down and I’m probably gonna wind up as addicted as you.

  2. Steve says:

    I’ve found cases of this stuff (roughly 20 bottles I think) for like $18 at Costo – thats less than $1 a bottle, certainly a manageable expense for said addiction…

  3. Marvo says:

    Genny – I definitely could not do any dealing, since I would totally drink all the merchandise.

    Mallory – Hmm…It’s summer so to warm up it would’ve been easier to walk outside. Unless you live on the other side of the planet.

    Liz – Yeah, you probably will. You know what they say, “Recovery is a 12-step process, but addiction is only one.” I wonder if Lindsay Lohan will ever learn that.

    Steve – I really do need a Costco card, so I can buy Vitamin Water, a new HDTV, and 100-pack of Trojan condoms, which I will never use.

  4. Hunter says:

    Hey! I tried this stuff yesterday. Damn, its good.

  5. Tits McGee says:

    You turd, it’s supposed to taste like blueberries and pomegranates. Fruit punch is almost always red. Duh.

  6. is it really healthy? i am so wary of anything with sugar being healthy, even if it does have antioxidants.

    sorry that was the nerdiest comment ever.

  7. Marvo says:

    Hunter – Damn straight!

    Tits McGee – Turd? Who are you, Stan Marsh’s sister on South Park? If you’re gonna call someone names, you gotta bring it. How about, “You fuckin’ dumbshit?” Turd? Are you in the fourth grade? Also, you’re right not all fruit punch are red, like this one.

    miss petite america – It’s not really healthy. It’s healthier than soda, but not as healthy as plain water.

  8. Have you checked eBay, Marvo? Maybe there’s a dealer there.

  9. Molly says:

    Are you in the Waikiki area (I sometimes get the impression you might be)? I saw a dozen or so bottles at the Beach Walk (the actual street behind Planet Hollywood, not the Waikiki Beachwalk Shopping/Dining Complex located on Lewers Street) ABC store. Happy guzzling.

  10. Marvo says:

    Vulgar Wizard – My dealer just got some in stock the other day, but I bought him out. The withdrawals will probably return soon.

    Molly – If I lived in Waikiki, I would be much more tanned than I am now and I’d eat at the Cheesecake Factory everyday. Also, if one ABC Store has them in stock, then probably all 10,000 ABC Stores in Waikiki will have them too. Thanks for the tip!
