I don’t let my son drink sodas or anything artificial. I really don’t drink anything artificial either and I no longer drink sodas. When I found out all the yucky stuff that went into making soda, I was repelled by it. But when we are craving something sparkly and refreshing, we reach for beverages that contain fruit juice and sparkling water only. And that’s when we discovered IZZE not too long ago. IZZE, named after the daughter of the founder of the company, is an all-natural sparkling juice beverage company and their sparkling beverages are truly delicious! There are so many flavors to choose from and all of the flavors are effervescently yummy! And because they are made with only the juice of real fruits, I don’t feel too bad about serving it too my son. Sometimes you need a little bit of kick with your fruit juice, and what better way to do that than with IZZE?
The company IZZE was founded by two friends who believed that good-tasting beverages should also be good for you. That’s when the co-founders decided to create a sparkling beverage that contained only natural ingredients without any unnecessary additives. IZZE sparkling beverages do not have any preseravatives, and with the exception of their Sparkling Birch and Sparkling Ginger, their drinks do not contain any sugar – only the pure taste of natural fruit juices. I think that’s why I like IZZE beverages so much – that it’s not too sweet, but sweet enough to satisfy a sweet, bubbly, drink craving. I also like the fact that it is very refreshing, especially when it’s been in the fridge for a long time. You don’t even need to add any ice to a cup – you can drink it straight out of the bottle or the can. I personally like the glass bottle version because it’s readily recyclable and you can also reuse it for many purposes. And it looks really pretty.
IZZE’s current lineup of flavors and varieties are:
IZZE Sparkling Juice and the flavors include Pomegranate, Grapefruit, Lime, Blueberry, Clementine, Peach, Blackberry, and Apple.
IZZEesque (which is a low calorie beverage) includes Watermelon, Black Rasberry, Limon, and Mandarin
IZZE Fortified which includes Clementine, Pomegranate, Apple, Grapefruit, and Blackberry and are fortified with essential vitamins
IZZE Natural Soda which includes Ginger and Birch
I haven’t tried their new Natural Ginger and Natural Birch yet but I think they sound quite interesting! A beverage made from birch oil – definitely something different and unique. And that’s exactly what you’ll find IZZE beverages to be – uniquely satisfying and craving for more. But IZZE isn’t just a pretty bottle with an effervescent kick. IZZE believes in giving back to the community and to be responsible for the environment. They support local and nationwide events that mirror their own philanthropic views and is partnered with the Global Education Fund – an organization dedicated to bringing educational support to children in need. You can read more about it here: http://www.izze.com/giving-back/global-education-fund/. IZZE also uses Wind Energy where possible and post-consumer recycled cardboard in the packaging of their 4-pack containers. IZZE also supports “Bike to work day” for their city’s annual event and makes sure that their employees are always happy and satisfied. With a company that cares about people in their products and their philosophy, that’s always a win-win situation.
Although I’ve tried a few of their varieties previously, IZZE sent me samples of their new IZZEesque in their four dazzling flavors: Watermelon, Black Rasberry, Limon, and Manadarin. I was incredibly honored and pleased to try the new flavors. My son and I are big watermelon lovers and I think our favorites were the Watermelon and Mandarin – although they were all flavorsome and intensely satisfying. Because they were low-calorie (the IZZEesque versions contain only 50 calories per 12 oz.), they weren’t as sweet as their other varieties but it was still amazingly delicious! I’m not ashamed to admit that I gulped down the entire bottle in one sitting! And right now with it being Summer, IZZE sparkling beverages have what it takes to cool you down and make you feel all tingly when you drink it. So – IZZE wanted to give readers of Happymomblogger a chance to try and enjoy some of their sparkling beverages.
