Coca-Cola’s brand of bottled water, Dasani, was a flop in the UK after the public realised it was just filtered tap water. But the story’s a bit more complicated than it might seem. | Drinking Dasani with Ashens: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6VhcpwFZJM

Dasani is trash tho. How do you manage to make water taste like chemicals

Matt Vorn says:

Coca Cola has the Smartwater brand so you can still buy Coca Cola water in theory…

Jeremy Saklad says:

I hate bottled water. It’s a waste of money, material, and landfill space. Seriously, just pick up a decent insulated metal bottle and you’ll be golden.

Tap water is superior to bottled water in most places, and you can buy filters for the exceptions.

It's the essence of life

Apache Chief says:

Did you know, that there is so much cocaine in the water in the U.K., that they are unable to filter it all out of the water. When you drink water in the U.K., you get small doses of coke. Ironic.

Tom The English Picker says:

Fair play Tom for doing that in one take .

Because it’s garbage?

Dick Head says:

3:33 "pure still water" includes Calcium Chloride, Magnesium Sulphate and Sodium Bicarbonate?

Te Revenant? 1917? Pfffft. Save some Oscars for Tom Scott!

It's endlessly fascinating to see you evolve over the years. From long haired geek to graying gentleman.

John Brown says:

Without watching video or googleing it it's because they tried and it was just tap water in a bottle and failed

it's ass anyway

Gilgwath says:

Well, they just got what they deserved. I think bottled water is an almost criminal wast of resources. Yes, of course, there are places where it's the only source of clean drinking water, but here in Central Europe it's just plain silly. If the US could get their infrastructure act together there as well.

dude you missed the free gloves 9:11

Guy Rotenberg says:

How sad it is that the road to a factory making unnecessary plastic bottles and cans… is littered with unnecessary plastic bottles and cans.

E Edition says:

Why is this in my recommended ?

Tom Scott says:

If you wish I'd drunk some of this: so do I! And you're in luck, because Ashens and I did just that over on his channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6VhcpwFZJM
