That $6 Bottle of Asparagus Water at Whole Foods Was a Mistake

Thankfully, "asparagus water" isn't really a thing.

Whole Foods was in the news again this week after a food editor in Los Angeles spotted these bottles of asparagus water — plastic bottles with three spears and plain old water — in her local store.

Eater did some investigating and was told by a store employee that it was an actual product and that "nutrients from the asparagus do transfer to the water."

Additional calls to corporate spokespeople revealed that the asparagus water was a mistake; the product was meant to be more of a vegetable stock starter and have more than just asparagus.

We're just glad we won't be seeing recipes for homemade asparagus water anytime soon.
