Naturally Savvy Sampler
One of the many sampler programs I am involved with is the Naturally Savvy Savvy Sampler program. Naturally Savvy is this great site that focuses on Natural, Organic and Green Living. It is a wonderful place to find the latest news on healthy living including articles, product reviews, recipes, beauty and personal care information, fitness programs, nutrition tips and so much more. Like many other sampler programs, Naturally Savvy’s Savvy Sampler program will send free, full-sized samples of all-natural, organic and green living products for you to try in exchange for your honest opinion.
This was my first experience with the Savvy Sampler program, and I was given the opportunity to try a product by R.W. Knudsen Family. Since 1961, R.W. Knudsen Family has been producing all natural, organic fresh-pressed and blended juices that are made without any artificial flavoring, preservatives or added sugar. Today they produce a wide selection of beverages including over 125 different types of natural and organic fruit and vegetable juices, carbonated fruit beverages, non-alcoholic celebratory beverages, natural sports drinks and more.
One of the beverages they produce was introduced over 25 years ago as an alternative to refined sugar and corn syrup-sweetened sodas, the R.W. Knudsen Family Spritzer line. Made with real fruit juice and sparkling water, these Spritzers are fat-free, low calorie and low sodium. They come in slender, 15 fl oz. cans, and are available in 14 flavors including Black Cherry, Peach, Tangerine, Grape, Ginger Ale and more.
The flavor I tried was Lemon Lime, and I figured it would taste similar to other lemon-lime sodas, but without that sugary taste. Was I ever wrong! Instead it tastes exactly like what it is, lemon, lime and white grape juice concentrates mixed with sparkling water. It has a very tart taste with just a hint of sweetness, and the sparkling water gives it just enough fizz to make it reminiscent of soda. It was actually quite refreshing, despite the fact that I am not a huge fan of lemon or lime juices or other tart flavors.
I cannot wait to try some of their other flavors as I was quite impressed with the beverage, and especially like how they are much better health-wise than sodas. I love the fact that they are made with natural and organic fruit juice, and also that they have no artificial flavors or preservatives, nor added sugars.
R.W. Knudsen Family Spritzers can be found at many health food stores and grocery stores that carry organic products. They are usually sold in packs of four at the grocery, although you can buy online in bulk.
