The San Francisco-based company's products are now found on the shelves at more than 15,000 retailers across the US and Canada, including Whole Foods, Lowes and Starbucks.

"Unlike some of the other so-called waters out there, this really is water," said Goldin, a mother of four whose goal was to create a healthier beverage for her family, like her father Bill Keenan did in developing Healthy Choice frozen dinners for ConAgra.

Hint, which comes in 10 flavors including such exotic-sounding combinations as pomegranate-tangerine, mango-grapefruit and honey dew-hibiscus, is advertised as being made without sweeteners, preservatives and calories.
