Hint Water

Hint is the brainchild of Kara Goldin, a San Francisco mother of four who wanted to stop drinking diet sodas and didn’t want her kids drinking sugary drinks. Kara couldn’t find anything that tasted good but didn’t have any calories, sugar, or diet sweeteners. Her simple solution - fruit infused Hint Water. Launched in 2005, Kara developed Hint in response to the growing number of beverages that had tons of sugar, diet sweeteners, and other additives. Hint helps people fall in love with water, and is available in many delicious flavors including Blackberry, Watermelon, Crisp Apple, Pineapple in Hint Still and Peach, Cherry, and Grapefruit in Hint Fizz. Hint is the fastest growing flavored water in the United States, and the largest beverage on campuses in Silicon Valley. Hint is the first lifestyle consumer packaged goods company to launch online and is enjoying disrupting the beverage industry to help people live a healthier lifestyle. Hint has a strong team working across the country, and is headquartered in San Francisco.
