    We like it! It is creamier than regular lemon la croix. I've found it at Whole Foods and Bucktown Marketplace (on Western).

    The Limoncello flavor has grown on us. Two of my kids and I are big La Croix drinkers and at first none of us liked this flavor. It was odd, because we all changed our minds.
    We found that as we continued to drink, it reminded us of a lemon bar. Now it seems the perfect after-lunch treat.
    We buy it at Meijer.

    It tastes exactly like Portillo’s lemon cake to me. I didn’t care for it because of the vanilla notes.

    Thanks. Hopefully I will be able to track it down. I did not think of Whole Foods.

    Limoncello is one I haven't tried yet, but I've seen it at Meijer. If it was on sale, I'd have grabbed it.

    Their Key Lime is my number one favorite with a bullet. Just like lime sherbet, IMO.
    Bubly Apple is 2nd
    Bubly Lime / Dasani Tropical Pineapple is 3rd
    Lacroix's mango is a damn fine one, too.

    I drink a ton of sparkling water. I pretend it's soda so I can still eat cookies and pretend I'm balancing it out. Don't you judge me.

    Finally was able to get some. It was rather a bust. I don't think I like the vanilla notes in it. I prefer the ordinary lemon La Croix.

    I just love it!
    This and the hibiscus LaCroix are my new faves
    Altho I recently tried Jelly Belly pina colada sparkling water and it was phenomenal

    Purchased Limoncello LaCroix at HarvesTime Foods, 2632 W. Lawrence Ave, Chicago. They also have the new-to-me Hibiscus and Watermelon. For people familiar with this store, they were by the ground on the north end of the produce stand where the rest of the LaCroix have always been.

    I saw Jelly Belly sparkling water at the Kosher Jewel on Howard on Saturday, and I was wondering if it was any good? I think it was $3.99

    The hibiscus -
    Is it really "juicy" with a tang? Or is it a kinda mellow hibiscus flavor? Haven't tried it yet

    I thought the hibiscus was tangy in a nice way

    Scored some hibiscus, really like it. Juicy and tangy. Sparkling water purists will probably not like it. My sig other does not like the fruity flavors that I do. I generally like them more.

    Liked the La Croix hibiscus, fruit flavor, berry notes, tasty.

    La Croix limoncello's flavor seemed a bit flat. Only had one, will try a few more. I, obviously, have 11 (of both types) Left.

    I'm a La Croix Pamplemousse fan, that and Topo Chico are my main squeeze sparkling waters.

    Pamplemousse, count me a Fan!

    Love the Key Lime, Hibiscus, and Passion Fruit LC H20 available at Valley Produce Evanston but drink tons of the regular lemon and line varieties too. Will try the mango...

    The mango is a fave of mine as well, but Key Lime is king. Really liking the hibiscus too. Way juicier than I thoughgt it would be. If we have sim tastes, I'd urge you to try the Bubly Apple - surprising flavor, but really good. Dasani Pineapple and Lacroix Cherry Lime (skinny cans) are high on my list as well. Another odd one that is decent is the A-Ha ginger one.

    If you have a Tony's near you, a few times per year, Bubly or Lacroix will go as low as 4 for 10. I've seen 2.99 quite a few times as well. I've been known to fill the back of the minivan as wife 1.0 rolls her eyes (again.)

    Woke up dry mouth, chugged half a can of Limoncello LaCroix.

    Slight chemical lemon drop aroma/flavor. Not my favorite.

    I believe that the same flavor additive is used to turn lime into key lime & lemon into limoncello but I can't quite decide whether it's the stuff they use in birthday cake Halo Top or the stuff they use in bubblegum dental anesthetic. Absolutely demonic.

    The official canon:

    Buy it with my own money tier: Pamplemousse, tangerine, peach-pear

    Fine if it's free at work tier: Orange, mango, hibiscus, (big gap) lemon, (big gap) key lime

    Sorry I'm not a Rockefeller but I'll drink and enjoy these at parties tier: LaCroix Curate

    Dump it in Mozart's grave tier: Everything else but especially limoncello. Undrinkable!

    Tried the apricot and mango...both pretty subtle with the apricot not as sweet. IMHO, the hibiscus is the most flavorful. I have not tried any of the berry varieties.

    So, for as many posts as I've made in this thread, I finally tried the limoncello, and, I frickin love it. That end note of fake vanilla really sets it off for me.

    Wow, soooo vanilla. It tastes like an unsweetened lemon pound cake. There are 11 left in my 12-pack and I think it'll be a while before I work through them. I'm a Topo Chico guy but I do enjoy an occasional La Croix Hi-Biscus. The Limoncello is just a bit too much for me.

    Update: It's been about 90 minutes since I finished my La Croix limoncello -- during which time I ate dinner -- and I can still taste that cloying lemon-vanilla flavor on my palate. Not good. :evil:
