Fruit2O Essentials - Review and Giveaway-CLOSED

We're into fruit. And water. No surprise there. It's where we come from and the name says it all. We got our start with the VeryFine Juice Company. Back in 1999, we were the first to recognize how wonderful it would be to put the delightful 0 calorie natural flavor of fruit together with the healthy refreshment of crystal clear water and call it a beverage. After all, water by itself is just plain boring. An unfortunate fact since it's something we need plenty of—every day. That's where Fruit2O® flavored waters come in.

We really think there's a better, tastier way for you and your families to get your full complement of water each day. It's the right thing to do and we're all about making it deliciously easy for you to feel great about making healthy, meaningful choices in your life. Available in 8 full flavored varieties, Fruit2O originals combine natural fruit flavor in crystal clear water without any sugar, carbs or calories. (from website).

One of my goals this year is to lose the rest of my baby weight (can I still call it that if my "baby" is 14?), and made a great start in 2009. I've dropped 35 pounds by eating healthier, walking a bit each day, and drinking lots of water. I know I need water, and it's the best thing to drink, but, well, it's plain. Boring. No flavor. I've tried adding lemon or lime juice, or a splash of juice to soda water, but it's definitely not Diet Coke.

I recently stumbled on Fruit2O Essentials - 6 delectable blends of fruit flavors with nutrients equal to 2 servings of fruit in each bottle. A great new way to get the water and nutrients you need anywhere, anytime—all with 0 calories and the fabulous flavor of fruit you expect from Fruit2O. Each bottle is fortified with several nutrients found in 2 servings of fruit, as well as vitamins, minerals and 1 gram of fiber.

These were fantastic! I loved the light fruit taste, and that they each were as nutritious as 2 servings of fruit. They were also a hit with the rest of the family - I put them on the top shelf in the fridge, front and center, and Brit (my 14 year old) would grab one instead of soda, which was fantastic. I'll definitely be keeping a supply of these on hand!
