in this world of genetically modified high fructose corn syrup sweetener, natural beverages have become an anomaly. recently, i was sent two of these gems to sample, and i found them both worthy of mention.
the first is HINT WATER, which is so much more palatable than regular water, but devoid of the sugars found in most flavored waters. i was a VITAMIN WATER addict until recently when THE unusually uniformed GWEN was actually told she was ingesting chemicals and sweeteners. boy i really dropped the health ball on that one. but i’m back… count me in for HINT WATER, a welcome alternative to just water and flavored waters. why not mix it in your favorite cocktail… after all, MR LIBRA likes it.
the second is POM WONDERFUL POMEGRANATE JUICE, which at this point has become a classic in the juice world. it was POM WONDERFUL that started the trend to popularize the pomegranate years ago, so thank them. check out the website for tons of really good cocktail, mocktail and culinary recipes. my personal favorite is virgo’s PURPLE HAZE. on a personal note, POM WONDERFUL signed a memoratorium on animal testing a while back, so TRIPLE KUDOS to them. how many other companies conduct needless tests on animals unbeknownst to you an I? be confident that POM WONDERFUL is not among them… drink in moral confidence and drink to your health, cheers!
