This seltzer is made with real fruit

If you’ve sworn off sweet sodas yet still enjoy a bubbly beverage with a hint of fruit, Spindrift’s Sparkling Water & Real Squeezed Fruit is the perfect choice. “No one does this,” says Spindrift founder Bill Creelman of the seltzers ($1.99) that contain real fresh-squeezed fruit juice and no added sweeteners. The fruit adds pure flavor, natural color, and, in some cases, bits of pulp. The Waltham-based company makes sparkling water in raspberry-lime, blackberry, grapefruit, cucumber, and lemon flavors; watermelon is sold exclusively at Trader Joe’s. Creelman won’t divulge what new flavors are coming down the pike, but, he says, “we’re always playing around.” Available at most Costco, Target, Whole Foods Market, and Trader Joe’s stores. Also look for cans at Flour Bakery + Cafe locations, including 1595 Washington St., Boston, 617-267-4300, and 190 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, 617-225-2525, and Sorelle Bakery & Cafe locations, including 282 Congress St., Boston, 617-426-5475.
