Bottled Water: Top Selling Beverage in the Country
As much as you need to have other beverages on your shelves, bottled water is actually the top selling beverage in the country, as reported by Fortune. The grab-and-go beverage has been slowly climbing the sales charts since Perrier was first introduced in the seventies, but most people would have never suspected bottled water to outsell soda. In 2016, carbonated soda consumption was 38.5 gallons per capita, while bottled water reached 39.3 gallons.
Why Is Bottled Water So Popular?
So, what makes bottled water so in demand? It likely comes down to three things:
- It’s convenient. People are more aware than ever of how much water they need to consume. But constantly refilling water bottles and then having to clean them, is time consuming. With bottled water, they can grab and go and then recycle.
- It’s healthy. Additionally, the news of the ill-effects of sugary sodas is more widespread than ever before. In the past, the harmful effects of sugar (and the fake sugar found in diet soda) weren’t as well known, so more people drank it. Soda is now linked to diabetes, obesity, and more.
- It’s cheaper. Many cities in the country now impose a hefty tax on soda beverages, making them a more expensive option than bottled water.
