If you’ve never heard of sparkling coffee, seeing it in your local Aldi can definitely take you by surprise. But it’s actually a widely-enjoyed beverage that reduces the bitterness of jet-black coffee without cream and sugar. Sparkling java has some great health benefits — adding carbonated mineral water to your morning coffee can boost your daily water and vitamin intake (per Well + Good).
In addition to its nutrient-rich complexion, Aldi’s coffee-flavored sparkling water seems to be enjoyed by many of its shoppers. While a few Aldi fans on the Reddit forum left comments like “There’s just no way this is good” many of them are hooked on the unusual beverage. One happy Aldi customer commented “I like it! I get it’s not for everyone, but I like that it’s light and refreshing with just a touch of caffeine.”
While it may not be your average cup of joe, sparkling coffee is a perfect choice for anyone looking for a lighter, less-bitter alternative to pure espresso.
