Since you鈥檙e probably sipping the bubbly bev on the regular these days, we have some bad news: You might be saying La Croix totally wrong. La Croix lovers have plenty to debate, from the most refreshing and delicious flavor to whether it鈥檚 a healthy alternative to soda or actually harming your health (eek!), but this week鈥檚 Southern Charm brought up yet another argument for the ages: How the heck do you say it?

Naomie Olindo, a native of France, told the group it was pronounced 鈥淟a Kwah鈥 with Kathryn Dennis insisting it鈥檚 pronounced 鈥淟a Croy鈥 like enjoy鈥 which makes sense, since we very much do. According to the brand itself, Kathryn is the winner here, which makes it so much easier for us to remember as we continue to hoard it by the case.

If you鈥檙e wondering exactly how and why La Croix got its name, it鈥檚 because it was created by the G. Heileman Brewing Company, based in La Crosse Wisconsin. The name was created due to its proximity to Wisconsin鈥檚 St. Croix River, designed to bring sparkling water to the masses as an anti-Perrier鈥 so there鈥檚 nothing particularly French about it.

Though it鈥檚 been around since 1981, our La Croix obsession has hit an all-time fever pitch in the last few years as millennials say 鈥渂uh bye鈥 to sugary sodas and helloooo to sparkling water for a refreshing, low-calorie kick. So there you have it. Bottoms up, La Croix devotees!
