Fruit2O Essentials Review and Giveaway

I enjoy drinking water, but there are times when I need a little something more than just plain water. Over the years, I have tried several different flavored waters, carbonated and not carbonated, but I have struggled to find one that was just right. I have decided that I do not like sparkling water, but I held out hope in finding a good "still" flavored water. Fruit2O Essentials came to my rescue and they have vitamins, minerals, and even fiber added to them.



There is a flavor choice for just about everyone. My personal favorite is Strawberry Kiwi, but I also really liked Cranberry Raspberry and Cherry Acai. Other flavors include Citrus, Blueberry Pomegranate, and Peach Mango, all of which are also very good. Each bottle has 0 calories and 0 sugar, but are bursting with fruit flavor that tastes natural and not chemically like some I have tried. They are sweetened with sucralose (Splenda is also sucralose), but there is really no aftertaste. All of the drinks have 1 gram of dietary fiber and a combination of nutrients that vary based on the flavor. The nutrients are similar to what you would find in the actual fruits that each is flavored to taste like.

I enjoyed these waters very much and would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a good, 0 calorie drink. They are a light drink , like water, so they easily quench your thirst and they taste wonderful. The downside for me is that I do not like buying individual bottles of water for environmental reasons and these are currently not available in a larger size (most flavored waters aren't). They come in 18 oz individual bottles and are also available as part of a 15-count variety pack. If you do choose to buy them, be sure to check the website for a coupon. Currently, you can get a coupon for $1 off two 18 oz bottles and we all know that every penny counts.
