Some people say water is just water—which may have been true at one point. But those poor souls clearly haven’t sipped that sweet, sweet LaCroix nectar. Oh, and ICYMI, LaCroix is a brand of flavored sparkling water with 10 glorious flavors—because anything that tastes like nothing is just no fun. Sorry not sorry!
Since water is something, ya know, we need to consume for survival, we are blessed to have options that don’t taste like they came from the kitchen sink. However, with great power comes great responsibility. And that leads me to the reason we’re here: to rank le BEST flavors of that bubbly goodness.
Of course, there’s passionfruit, berry, mango, lime, and pamplemousse, aka grapefruit, but honestly, they’re all really freaking good. (How regal does that last one sound though?)
If you’re out here at the grocery store standing in front of a wall of sparkling waters while googling “best LaCroix flavors,” you’ve come to the right place. There is a catch though: Instead of ranking all the flavors from best to worst (which is honestly impossible), we categorized them by the specific occasion or mood. Today you might be a pamplemousse and tomorrow you’re a limoncello. The world is your bubbly oyster, friends. Now, go on and live your best sparkling water life!!
If you’ve been watching a lot of Below Deck Mediterranean: Limoncello
A sip of this bad boy and you’ll feel like you’re on a yacht somewhere along the Amalfi Coast throwing back chilled limoncello liqueur, just without any of the boozy consequences.
If you wish you could ~taste~ summer: Pastèque
First, a French lesson: pastèque = watermelon. Literally all of that fun and bright summertime energy is in this can. It’s like taking a bite straight out of a watermelon without having to…actually take a bite out of a watermelon.
If you love pink everything: Hi-Biscus!
LaCroix says that if you could eat the color pink, it would taste like this. Think: sweet florals! So to all my pink lovers, we’ve found your liquid match!
If you miss brunch with your besties: Tangerine
For those moments when your body longs for something crisp and earthy, like that kale breakfast salad you could never recreate, grab the tangerine-flavored LaCroix and you will be one thousand percent satisfied.
If you’re a smoothie person: Berry
The fruity goodness up in this can is perfect for anyone who drinks their own berry blend on the reg. This flavor is going to be your jam. (Heh, get it?)
If you love dessert: Key Lime
Fan of all things decadent? This one actually tastes creamy (no, really!) just like the pie. Plus, the aftertaste has a hint of graham cracker to finish it off.
If you like sweet and tart: Apricot
Why should you have to choose between these two tastebuds? Get you a sparkling water that treats both.
If you’re in the mood for something tropical: Passionfruit
You’re in your backyard rn, lying on some grass or cement in a bathing suit imagining you’re on that Bahamas trip you booked months ago but had to cancel. It is what it is, but you can still play up like you’re on an island by sipping on these beachy vibes.
If you’re feelin’ fancy: Pamplemousse
As I mentioned earlier, the name of this beauty translates to “grapefruit,” but it sounds like the title of the next royal baby, IMO. On that note, pick up a 12-pack of this for a fancy-ass pick-me-up in the middle of your v boring workday. Best served in a long-stem wine glass.
If you’re drinking it for the bubbles only: Pure
I know how you feel, my friend. Just go with the Pure flavor—it’ll level up your water with carbonation sans added tastes.
If you need something to pair with your tacos: Lime
It’s subtle, simple, and not too plain. The end.
If you’re looking to mix it with vodka: Orange
While this flavor is perfectly amazing on its own, adding a splash of vodka will make for extra-fun times. It’s like a screwdriver, basically, without the heartburn or pulp.
If you prefer water to taste like it came from a 5-star restaurant: Lemon
Grab this when you’re in dire need of a drink to rejuvenate you. No frilly taste, just a hint of lemon to give you that reviving savor.
If you like vodka crans: Razz-Cranberry
Apologies for blowing up your spot, vodka, but who doesn’t miss ordering drinks at the clerb? Because I do!! And don’t even lie, you know this basic-ass drink is your go-to. To ~feel~ like you’re at your favorite spot—sans the vodka (for now, hehe)—give this LaCroix flavor a whirl.
If you’re manifesting vacation vibes: Coconut
You can catch me on my couch sweating in the New York City humidity with a can of Coconut LaCroix pretending like I’m somewhere in Greece.
If you’re craving something really juicy: Mango
Truly, there’s nothing like the taste of a full-flavored mango. It’s honestly unmatched compared to other fruits! Don’t @ me!! Mango LaCroix tastes exactly like the actual thing, just a lot lighter and bubblier. You’ll looove.
If you can never make up your mind: Peach-Pear
Hey, naturally indecisive friends! I gotchu. Go with the Peach-Pear flavor, bb. You get two flavors in a can, so no need to stress about picking *the* one.
