Fizzical Education - A soda alternative

Innocently walking down the juice aisle with intentions to simply grab a bottle of organic apple juice, my eyes settle on the words 'fizz ed.'. Blink. I examine the 4 pack: Apple & Eve, fruit juice and sparkling water, no sugar added. hum....I am expecting to flip this sweet little 4 pack over and see fake sugars, fake colors and HFCS listed but nope. I see, concentrated fruit juice, water, filtered carbonated water and natural flavors. This looks promising.

Admit it, you crave a little bubbly sometimes, no, not champagne (one of my faves) but soda however, we all know they are 100% junk so we avoid....right? Yes, I sometimes want one when sitting at a BBQ. Well, this seems like a good alternative for you and your kids to have here and there. There are 4 flavors: red raspberry, orange mango, green apple, and pomegranate cherry.

I grabbed the green apple to try and I enjoy it. I am getting old (well to 20 years old I am) so the 21 g of sugar per can are a bit sweet for me but it is a refreshing and at least they are fruit sugars. I always disappointed to grab a can that states 'no sugar added' and see that that is because they are filled with a sugar substitute. Besides the taste, I am a sucker for packaging so these cute cans and the title 'fizz ed.' are right up my alley!

ALSO: ANYONE out there going to blogher? have room? CT/RI/MA?

This sounds great, will have to keep an eye out for it. I haven't decided on Blogher, I'm local but just haven't been able to commit yet. A few of us are planning to do dinner on that Friday night, so let me know if you're interested.

Thanks for the head's up on this find! I'll keep an eye out for it - it's just what I'm looking for to sip on during long classes. Coffee gets cold and soda makes me feel horrible.
