Summer Giveaway: Mountain Valley Spring and Sparkling Water

At Whole Foods Market®, we love sharing good food and drink. Whether it’s a peak-of-the-season berry, a team member creation from our bakery, sausages made in house or a new grocery discovery, we love celebrating great flavors and products. But we don’t just want to tell you about it; we want you to enjoy it too. So, we’re doing a series of summer giveaways through mid-August.

Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway. Congratulations to our winner Nan W. from California!

Sweet sodas, fruity smoothies and herbal ice teas seem to be an arm’s reach away during the summer, but sometimes nothing refreshes like water. That’s why we’re giving away a case of nature’s perfect thirst quencher. Read on to find out how to enter to win. Bottled at the spring in Hot Springs, Arkansas since 1871, Mountain Valley Spring Water is America's oldest continually operating bottled water company.

Today, they offer spring and sparkling water. This is no ordinary spring. Protected by approximately 2,000 acres of natural forest lands, the Mountain Valley spring is the deepest natural spring currently operating in the contiguous 48 states.

Geologists have determined that the water takes up to 3,500 years for the rain falling on Cedar Mountain to travel to the aquifer and return as Mountain Valley Spring Water. Yup, 3,500 years! So the natural filtering of this ancient water and the minerals it collects along the way likely make it different from many other options out there.

Maybe it’s the taste from the long filtering process or the depth of the spring or maybe it’s something else all together, but Mountain Valley Spring Water has collected quite a fan club including the White House, where 13 US Presidents have served it. It has also twice been named “Best Tasting Non-Carbonated Bottled Water in the World” at the Berkley Springs International Water Tasting Competition. (Is it just me or is there a joke about the judging panel going out for drinks after the competition somewhere here?)

Available in 1-liter recyclable glass bottles, Mountain Valley Spring Water is naturally sodium free and certified Kosher and Pareve for Passover by the Orthodox Union. Whether you’re enjoying it straight up, mixing the sparkling with your favorite juice or serving it to a President, Mountain Valley Spring Water and Sparkling Water are refreshing additions to summertime.

Why are you so thirsty this summer? Tell us in the comments below by Tuesday, July 9 and we’ll pick a winner at random to receive a case of Mountain Valley Spring Water or Sparkling Water (winner’s choice)!

The fine print: No purchase necessary. Promotion ends July 9, 2012, 11:59 PM CDT. Must be a legal resident of the US or Canada (except in Quebec, where it is void) age 18 or older to participate. Taxes on prize, if applicable, are the responsibility of the winner. Employees of Whole Foods Market, Inc., are not eligible. Void where prohibited.

I have being battling a form of cancer, and have being eating very healthy and free of chemicals (or ate least, trying to). I found that drinking glass bottled water is the most pure water I could ever drink, and avoid the ingestion of plastic bottled water, which is full of chemicals. I chose the Mountain Valley brand because I believe on its purity, and I discovered the true taste of a pure water. I got to have it !!!

Sun hits Colorado harder during summer months. Why? Simple, we are closer to the big ball of fire, by about a mile. Hitting the slopes for biking, climbing, and hiking, you need all the good stuff your body desires for replenishment, and this includes plenty of classic Mountain Valley Spring Water from the Ozarks!

These pretzels are making me thirsty!

Cathy Wortham says …

When the humidity is the same as the temperature, and you feel the sweat rolling off your body; all you can think about is something to cool you off and refresh you. That's when you reach for Mountain Valley Spring Water.

Joni Hunt says …

Mountain Valley Spring Water is the best. :0) Thanks Whole Foods!

John Bennet says …

For over 30 years we had Mountain Valley delivered to our house in 5 gallon glass jugs (we lived in the Midwest). For the last five years, I thought we had to live without it here on the west coast. I was absolutely thrilled to discover it available at .Whole foods in Seattle. It's the best tasting water on earth. Nothing else even comes close.
