Albie and Chris Manzo of Real Housewives of New Jersey to Plug Blk Water at Whole Foods

Albie and Chris Manzo, the sons of Real Housewives of New Jersey matriarch Caroline Manzo have grown up -- sorta.

The boys (can you call 20-something year old men boys?) have turned their strange idea into a fast-selling product. The idea? Get people to buy bottled water.

Wait? What's so strange about that? Well, it looks like it's dirty, gritty black water that the "before" specimen at a water treatment facility. And it's got one cool name...Blk.

Given the fact that their last get-rich-scheme involved a car wash and strippers, we'll call this idea the next Coca-Cola!

Blk Water (which is really black), gets its color from the trace fulvic minerals added to Canadian spring water. The material, which can be traced back to plant material from about 70 millions years ago, are supposed to contain 77 trace minerals and electrolytes. Whatever. We just know that it's black water. Which is both amusing and disturbing at the same time -- kind of like Real Housewives of New Jersey, come to think of it.

If you want to try Blk water, the Manzo boys (who, by the way are cute and single -- if you're into man-children who have mommy issues) will be at various Whole Foods Markets throughout South Florida.

By the way, our sister blog, Short Order tried the water. Surprise, surprise... it tasted like... water.
