Solixir is an all natural sparkling botanical botanical beverage. I received a few cans for free to review a few months ago, but it takes me a bit of time to really form an opinion about a new product I have never tried before. Here are my thoughts:
-With a cube of ice on a hot afternoon, it is quite refreshing.
-The blackberry chamomile is my favorite, as it has flavor to it without being sweet. Actually the other flavors have that same advantage, but I enjoy the blackberry chamomile the most.
-My favorite flavor only has 50 calories for the whole can.
-The can, at 12 oz, is perfect to share when you’re not too thirsty or to drink alone when you are thirsty.
-It is a very pleasant change from the plain seltzer I usually drink.
- It is quite expensive, making it a treat rather than something I could drink every day. However, I respect that it is a small company and therefore naturally the cost/can is quite high.
-They don’t taste good at all when at room temperature or warm. Must be cold, and even better with ice.
-They are not sold at my local Whole Foods!…. yet.
For the record, I only accept about 12 products to review a year. I always make sure that they are products I would want to try anyway, and I strive to always give you my honest thoughts.
How do you learn about new products or foods? I usually learn through magazines, other food blogs, events [races, festivals, etc], and friends. I credit the blog world for my passion for brussels sprouts, banana in my oats [thanks, Kath] , feta cheese, Larabars, and much more.
