(I just love this video and it will make you feel good about humanity =-) )
The good folks at Honest (tea and kids) were kind enough to send us over some of their quality beverages and we could not be more pleased.
We are excited to showcase the Honest Kids products as part of our back to school special with Whole Foods Market Encinitas!
We have actually been fans of Honest products for a while. We don’t buy a lot of beverages in our house – specifically juice – but Honest Kids is the exception for several reasons
One – it is 100% natural with no high fructose corn syrup. I also like that it is NOT 100% juice. Kids don’t need that much straight juice in my opinion. I really like that it is just a hint of organic juice, but also cut with filtered water – this is actually more hydrating than 100% juice! We only buy it a few times a year – usually when there is a great sale or a coupon.
This was really my first experience with Honest Tea & Honest Ade. We generally don’t drink anything other than water (OK, coffee and wine too ) – mainly because we do not want to drink all those extra calories. Well – guess what?! Honest Tea & Honest Ade are 100 calories per serving AND the WHOLE BOTTLE is the serving!! That is honest! I love that! I really dislike it when a company packages something in a bottle that looks like a single serving but says that it has 2 or 3 servings inside. We don’t buy soda in our house – but I do crave it and will often buy it out and about – usually a couple times a week. All those empty calories and chemicals are not good for me – NOW I get to have a slightly sweet treat beverage that is chemical free and just 100 calories. In the case of Tea I also get a slight natural pick me up!
I asked them to describe their company in their own words and I LOVE what they came back with…..
“Honest is exactly what the word is…honest. We are a USDA certified organic brand with less sugar than other tea/juice beverages, and every bottle is 100 calories or under. Our kids pouches are 50% less sugar than other kids drinks, and can be upcycled into really neat products through Terracycle! In addition to being a great tasting beverage, our company also prides itself on being a socially responsible brand, which is one reason that our teas are fair trade certified! Our mission statement is:
Honest Tea seeks to create and promote great-tasting, truly healthy, organic beverages. We strive to grow our business with the same honesty and integrity we use to craft our products, with sustainability and great taste for all.”
How great is that?!
And lastly, they were kind enough to send me over the current sales all over San Diego County…..
