I work hard to find healthy, good food choices for my family so I’m always excited when I come across something new to try. I was recently asked by Moms Meet to try out some new products from Santa Cruz Organics. I buy organic whenever possible so I was thrilled to get the chance to try out these products.
When my box of samples arrived, my daughter was especially excited to see what “treats” she might get to help me sample. We decided to broadcast our un-boxing live on Facebook and had quite the time doing it! Together we went through the box to see what we’d be send and went ahead and tried everything right there on the video. Here it is once again for your enjoyment!
I was given the opportunity to try out 2 bottles of Santa Cruz Organic Agua Fresca beverage and a 4 pk of Santa Cruz Organic Applesauce Pouches. I also received a reusable plastic beverage cup and a coupon for a FREE Santa Cruz Organics product.
Santa Cruz Organic Agua Fresca Beverage
Our box of goodies included 2 bottles of Agua Fresca to try: Lemonade and Pomegranate flavors. My daughters enjoyed both, but especially liked the lemonade flavor. They are typically big lemonade fans, so this was right up their alley. I was thrilled to see the real ingredients on the label like juice, water, and real sugar. As a mom, real ingredients are something I always look for in my purchases because if I don’t know what something is on a label, I’m sure not putting it in my family’s bodies. I appreciate that these are also Non-GMO Project Verified and gluten-free. I enjoyed both flavors too but found them a little bland. They were better when cold (instead of room temp during our video sampling). I would have liked to taste stronger lemon and pomegranate flavors instead of watered down flavors.
My kids liked them enough that we used our free product coupon on another bottle! We purchased the Strawberry Lemonade flavor and that was definitely the favorite flavor with my kids!
Santa Cruz Organic Applesauce Pouches
These were a HUGE hit with my kids, especially my 8 year old. She’s not typically into applesauce so much but she loves these handy pouches. As you see on the video, she enjoyed the entire pouch within seconds and wanted more afterwards! The 4 pouches we received didn’t even make it through the day in our house.
As with the juices, I really liked that these were only real ingredients – just apples and water. The flavor was just like a fresh apple and I’d definitely keep these around in my house for school lunches or snacks. These will certainly be something I purchase again in the future!
