The world’s most expensive water

Kona NigariTalk about expensive water! If you thought Bling H20 – at $24 for a 750ml bottle – was expensive, then think again.   Kona Nigari water from Hawaii  is apparently selling at $33.50 for a mere 2 ounce bottle.   Yes, you read that right… that’s seawater at more than $2,000 per gallon.   The only saving grace is that this is a concentrate and to be mixed with normal water. The reason for the hype and sky-high prices?   The Japanese have a thirst for the stuff.   Desalinated deep-sea water is being marketed as a dietary supplement out there, and is said to aid weight loss, stress reduction, skin tone and digestion.
