Gone are the days when your only sparkling water options were giant, two-liter seltzer bottles beneath rows of soda at the grocery store. The age of fizzy water has officially arrived! (Fun fact: Sparkling water is actually expected to be a 7.4 billion dollar industry in 2022.) Now, there are so many bubbly water brands and flavor combinations, picking one is actually borderline overwhelming.

With its wild popularity, the bubble buzz has also brought about some confusion—like, uh, are sparkling water, seltzer, and club soda really all the same thing?

Peep a few of the best sparkling water brands, below:

Yes, seltzer and sparkling water are essentially identical; just plain old water that’s carbonated (a.k.a. made bubbly) with carbon dioxide. But sparkling mineral water is slightly different. In this case, you're sipping water from natural springs or wells that contains minerals like sodium and magnesium and is naturally carbonated. Club soda, on the other hand, is plain water that has both minerals and carbon added to it in processing.

Though sparkling water may seem like an across-the-board healthy option, not all brands are created equal. To make sure your fizzy drink is as good-for-you as can be, choose a brand that is low in sodium and contains no added sugars, artificial flavors, or artificial sweeteners, says dietitian Elizabeth Shaw, RDN, CPT. (A little natural sweetness from real fruit juice is a-okay, though.)

Though many sparkling waters come canned these days, if you choose an option in a plastic bottle, just double check that it’s BPA-free, Shaw says. Keep your bubbly sips simple by opting for one of the following 15 fizzy water brands—all recommended by dietitians, happy customers, and Women's Health editors.
