OOBA - Review and Giveaway-CLOSED

OOBA is a 100% All Natural, Refreshingly Clean, Sparkling Beverage that infuses the Pure Extracts of the Incredible Hibiscus Flower into every bottle. OOBA is a Great Tasting, Healthy Beverage that is Rich in Antioxidants. Each bottle contains 100% of the Daily Recommended Value of Vitamin C. (from OOBA website).

I love the Hibiscus plant - I've planted at least one in each home we've owned, and when it blooms, I know summer is here to stay in Iowa. I enjoy watching the plants grow each year, from dainty, but brilliant, blooms to majestic showing of color the size of dinner plates. But drink them? I didn't know Hibiscus flowers were among the edible kind! Of course if I had, we'd of had a sad, naked hibiscus plant in the yard and flower casualties in the kitchen :) (NOTE: I do not recommend eating and / or juicing your hibiscus plant).

I couldn't wait to try OOBA - produced by Hibix Corporation, the world’s first sparkling hibiscus beverage. The ruby red color of this drink is all from the hibiscus extract.


Hibiscus
is a colorful flower commonly used to make herbal tea and drinks throughout Egypt, Asia, Africa, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America, where it has long been lauded for its health properties. Hibiscus extract contains many of the same antioxidant compounds as red wine, including flavonoids, polyphenols and anthocyanins, which have been demonstrated to prevent the oxidation of LDL or “bad” cholesterol, and positively affect hypertension (High Blood Pressure). (also from OOBA website).

OOBA is available in six yummy flavors, and I had a chance to try four of them:

OOBA Hibiscus - The original OOBA flavor of pure hibiscus, gently carbonated and lightly sweetened.

OOBA Hibiscus and Blackberry - OOBA hibiscus with the luscious, ripe essence of summer blackberries.

OOBA Hibiscus and Pineapple - OOBA hibiscus with tropical, tangy pineapple flavor.

OOBA Hibiscus and Orange - OOBA plus a bright, fresh splash of orang
e essence.

Hibiscus tastes a lot like a lighter, tangier cranberry juice, and was wonderful! I liked all of the flavors, but I loved the Hibiscus and Orange. Plus, all are made with 100% All Natural ingredients such a purified water, high quality hibiscus extract, pure cane sugar, and natural flavor essences. (No high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavor or color.) Plus, at only 90 calories per serving, you can indulge without a massive calorie overload.


Check out
