This list is, sadly, limited to the LaCroix flavors available in Canada. Unlike our southern neighbors, our product choices are surprisingly limited. I mean, it wasn’t until a trip to a local L.A. grocery store several years back that I discovered Ben & Jerry’s offered more than a half dozen flavors.
Anyway, here are my rankings. Your mileage may vary and, if so, would undoubtedly be incorrect….
Ah, the fresh flavor of flowers in a can. Maybe about as satisfying as licking your aunt’s potpourri.
Drinking the equivalent of carbonated suntan lotion is only marginally better.
Neither really peach nor pear in flavor. Instead, the two come together to offer something totally unique. Terribly, terribly unique.
I believe that, legally, they must label it as “pasteque” because it tastes and smells nothing like watermelon.
#12. Key Lime
Sparkly vanilla aint exactly a thirst quencher.
This one, along with watermelon, were the two flavors I was most looking forward to trying. And this one, like watermelon, was a huge disappoint although, in Limoncello’s case, it does possess hints of vestigial artificial lemon.
This one actually does deliver on the mango. And I hate mango.
I really wanted this to be so much better.
This one I was expecting to be so much worse.
One of our neighbors proclaimed Raz-Cran the best flavor, which leads me to assume she hasn’t really tried selections #1-#6. Still, I would rate this one inoffensive.
Qu’elle surprise! Passionfruit almost making it into the Top 5. Went in with low expectations and its surpassed them.
Echoes of the grape soda I used to enjoy as a kid. Doesn’t reach those lofty flavor heights, of course, but pure nostalgia is enough to vault it into the Top 5.
Hard to screw up this classic.
Strangely satisfying if not possessed by a slight underlying bitterness – which could just be my imagination. That or I was drinking from an expired can.
This one has always been my go-to. The classic.
Like sitting in an orange grove, indulging in fizzy tangerines. I want to bathe in the stuff.
Well, there you have it. My LaCrois rankings. Agree? Disagree? Let’s hear it.

Those descriptions though … LOL
Thanks for the review. I’m going to get the Tangerine!
I had no idea all these flavors existed, let alone were available in Canada. The alternative word for “watermelon flavor” has me confused. I honestly think your explanation makes the most sense.
I’m not a fan of LaCroix because of that bitter aftertaste & obvious contrived flavors. The bitterness in the orange seltzer I’ve attributed to them relying a little too heavily on the orange oil extract. Well, I can only hope they’re using actual orange peel extract…
I’ve never tried LaCroix. I might pick up a can of now. Usually, I drink water/tea.
I don’t even know what La Croix is! Never heard of it! I’m not a fan of sparkling water, flavoured or otherwise. Unless it’s Coke.
I never figured out what “sparkling water” is. I think I’ll just let it remain a mystery.
