My New Discovery: Probiotic Drinks!

Back at the Vida VeganCon, us attendees were practically showered with gifts and samples, from vendors and from the swag bags. I've already enjoyed many of said goodies. Of course, the true test of a real hit is "Would you buy it again?" So, I thought I'd gradually do some product reviews of products that I first encountered at the VVC, which I couldn't get enough of, and have since gone out and stocked up on.


First up would definitely be these pro-biotic drinks from Kevita. Kevita was one of the event sponsors and all weekend long they were offering little tasters of their different flavors. For whatever reason, I was skeptical at first. At some point, I was just plain thirsty, so I decided to give it a go - and lo and behold! - I loved it!

From then on, I kept sneaking back over to try out samples whenever she would put out a new flavor. Hee hee. Of the ones I tried, these were two of my favorite flavors: Mojita Lime Mint Coconut and Lemon Ginger. I think my most favorite flavor is Mango Coconut - every time I buy one, I drink it before I can take a picture of it.

I wasn't sure if I'd be able to find Kevita back home, but there it was in my favorite funky little natural foods store waiting for me. They keep it in the refridgerated raw foods sections.
bonus points for you if you know the inspiration for this doodle!

The drinks are called "Sparkling"... but I think they are very lightly sparkly. Nonetheless, they are definitely refreshing. The amount of flavor is just right for my tastes too. Not cloyingly sweet or overpowering, but also not pretentiously subtle. Just right! Plus, they're full of probiotics and really low on calories. Lucky me, I even found them on sale when I got back home to Santa Cruz, so I've got a few in my fridge right now!

  5. Gotta admit, I've gotten hooked on these, too. It's such a great summer treat- Flavorful, refreshing, and not too sugary. Hard to find all of those qualities in a bottled drink, it seems...

  6. I love how different everyone's tastes are! I, too, enjoyed sampling the range of Kevita at VVC, but would've put the Mojita as my absolute least favourite, while the lemon ginger was a winner to me too. :)

    I'll take those bonus points, In the Night Kitchen by Maurice Sendak. I guess my years of reading children's books has finally paid off!

  8. I love kombucha and any probiotic drinks. This brand Kevita was also on sale here recently, so I stocked up. Love the Acai-Coconut flavor. So refreshing in this heat wave we're suffering through on the right coast.
