Move over, water! Seltzer has become a much more exciting way to hydrate this season, and Polar Seltzer’s limited-edition flavors for the summer of 2017 will do nothing less than make you wish for more. Polar Seltzer, a family-owned business based in Worcester, Mass., has been captivating New England and the Eastern Seaboard for years, garnering a cult following of fans who anxiously await the arrival of seasonal flavors. The five summer flavors, which shipped out May 1, are packaged in one-liter bottles and include Pineapple Grapefruit, Strawberry Sunrise, Raspberry Rosé, Mango Berry and Watermelon Margarita. They have the perfect balance of flavor and essence that will satisfy a flavor craving without leaving a heavy taste in your mouth. The clever flavor and carbonated zing are enough to both tantalize your tongue and refresh yourself during the many hot days to come, and with zero calories, there’s no guilt either.
Several of the classic flavor combinations available year-round are delicious as well. Our favorites are Blueberry Lemonade, Orange Vanilla (which tastes exactly like a Creamsicle!), Cranberry Clementine, Raspberry Lime and Strawberry Watermelon.
Swing by your local grocery store to grab a bottle or two, or 10, before summer’s over. Bergenfield’s Acme has them on sale, four for $3. Polar Seltzer products are certified by the OU.
