Bobble Review and Giveaway

I suck at drinking water.

I first realized this while training for my half marathon this spring.  And then this summer when it was 80 billionty degrees.  I set a goal for myself of 4 liters a day so I would be properly hydrated while running and now properly hydrated during pregnancy.  The problem was that I don’t want to lug around bottles of water and my floor doesn’t have a water cooler.  And tap water tastes kinda funky in my building.

Enter the Bobble:

Mr. Big Pants bought me the 18.5 oz (550 mL) size Bobble and an extra filter in May when we were shopping at the Container Store (he’s a little obsessed with that place).  My stepmother already used one and needed more filters.  I’d seen one before at work and thought it was really cool looking, so I wanted one too (and they are cheap, so the old guy was willing to buy one.  Also, the built in filter means I have access to water anywhere (note: the Bobble should not be used to filter water that may be microbiologically unsafe).

My Bobble and I were a happy little pair, but my desk is really far away from the sink and there are about 8 million people sitting between me and water.  That meant that I was reticent to refill it every 30 minutes (shut up, I tend to drink my water all at once).  I know it’s really good to get up and move around, but walking past my boss’ office and everyone else was starting to get conspicuous, especially since I got the same route to the bathroom (which is on another friggin’ floor).

Enter the 1L Bobble:

The rule is this bad boy is never allowed to be empty.  I tend to drink 2-3 a day at work.  Yes, the water isn’t that cold, but it’s tasteless and fresh!  Also, no BPA, phthalates, or PVC and the bottles are reusable and made from recycled materials.  If you care about that kind of stuff (shh, I’m secretly kind of crunchy).  The filters are replaced about every 2 months (I get about 2.5-3 months out of mine) and you can replace with any color, so it’s always new and exciting.

So to summarize, I puffy pink unicorn heart my Bobble.  It’s easy to get water out through the filter (you’d be surprised how hard that can be in some of the other filter bottles), it’s cheap ($6.99 per filter, $8.99-$12.99 for the Bobble+filter), and it’s convenient.

Bobble can be found at these retailers, which includes a long list of national retailers, so you can definitely find it.  Or you can order online at their site here.  That is, of course, if you can’t wait to see if you win my giveaway!

Bobble kindly sent me 2 18.5 oz Bobbles to giveaway.  There will be two winners and each Bobble will come with some mini 100 Grand bars just for fun (100 Grand bars are the best of all the candy bars, so stop treating them like the red headed stepchild of candy!).  I have a green and a red, so let me know if you have a color preference, but absolutely no guarantees.

To enter (do as few or as many as you want):
1.  Follow my blog and let me know how you do so in a separate comment
2.  Comment below on where you would take you Water Bobble and if you have daily water consumption goal (MANDATORY. Please specify your color preference if you have one)
3.  Follow me on Twitter.  Let me know in a separate comment that includes your Twitter handle.
4.  Follow Bobble on Twitter. Let me know in a separate comment that includes your Twitter handle.
5.  Tweet this giveaway (make sure to include @RunningonWords).  Let me know in a separate comment that includes your Twitter handle.
6.  Blog this giveaway.  Leave the link in a separate comment.

Giveaway closes at 9 PM on 10/20.

FTC Disclaimer: I was not paid nor was my opinion solicited by Bobble.  I contacted Bobble and asked for the two giveaway bottles after purchasing and loving them.  And I don’t even know who makes 100 Grand bars, but they probably don’t know I exist, so they didn’t pay me either.

    Ooh want want want! I’ve never heard of these. I rarely drank anything but water before, but now it’s all I can drink with the teeth thing.

    You know I follow your blog!!

  2. April says:

    Right now, the only place I would take my Bobble would be my paper route, because leaving the house is for squares, ya know.

    I try to choke back 4 32 ounce cups of water every single day, and some days I do six or seven. Voluntarily!!

    I kinda like the red one. We have green furniture and curtains, so a spot of red would be welcome!

  22. Tracy says:

    I *need* something like this to take to work. I only have access to nasty drinking fountain water there, so I find that I will either: go a full day w/o drinking any water, or buy POP to quench my thirst!! (I refuse to pay for water when I can theoretically drink from the fountain, even though it tastes nasty.) I don’t have a minimum goal of how much to drink because, um, I often will drink only maybe 16oz or so in a day.

  23. This is a great review!!! I’ve been wanting to try a Bobble, but didn’t want to buy it if it wasn’t going to work well. Ridiculous, I know. It’s cheap, but still. lol

    I followed you blog via email subscriptions! Thank you so much for the chance! lisagoneaussie (at) gmail.com

  28. Megan says:

    Pink all the way! I haven’t figured out how to work twitter, wanna teach me? so I just follow your blog and would love a pink one 🙂

  29. I’m not entering because I have a Bobble and I love it! Great review too! We have a water cooler at work that has filtered water in it, but at home our water is crappy so I keep the Bobble in the fridge and have cold water at home all the time.

  30. I’d love to try Bobble–we have well water and a water softener, and I’d love tasteless water! I’m a breast cancer survivor, so I think pink would be an awesome color. Thanks for the chance!

  31. I follow Bobble on Twitter (WhiteRiverBluff)

  32. I follow you and I NEED one of these.

  33. I want the navy one! Oh, I would use it at work because I suck at drinking water at work.

    I think this is a really cool item. I’ll be honest though, I don’t drink as much water as I should on a daily basis. Shame on me.

    P.S. I’m only going to enter once because there’s some stiff competition going on around these here parts and I don’t want to get run over by the stampede …… geesh people, y’all crack me up!

    Since my lame, free water bottle melted in the dishwasher, I would take this EVERYWHERE. I need to drink more water. And maybe if I always had this with me, I would stop grabbing a Dr. Pepper when I’m out running around.

    I would want red. Or green. I would just be happy to get one.
