Delicious Mocktail: Pineapple Fizz

By Meg Hodson

I received complimentary samples of Veri Soda from Moms Meet. My opinions are 100% my own and do not necessarily suggest the opinions of Veri Soda or Moms Meet.

Have you walked down a soda aisle lately? Sometimes I get dizzy from the sheer number of options, brands, and flavors. This is the case both for the traditional soda aisle and the "natural" soda aisle. If you are looking for alternative soda these days, you have a lot of options. In this day and age of consumers seeking out healthier options that are organic and non-GMO, brands have caught on and new brands have emerged. 

Delicious Organic Non-GMO Veri Soda

I am one of those consumers that prefers real ingredients in my food and even when choosing an option like soda, want to make the healthiest choice I can. Veri Soda uses only the best quality organic, non-GMO ingredients in their line of USDA NOP-certified organic soda. Veri Soda is sweetened with organic fruit juice, organic cane sugar, and organic stevia to deliver a refreshing soft drink with only 60 calories per can. The drinks are lightly carbonated, allowing you to really taste the flavor. Plus, there’s no harsh sweetness or lingering after-taste like most zero-calorie sodas. Veri Soda has a “low glycemic load,” meaning you won’t have a sugar spike (or the
dreaded crash after!). All Veri Sodas are caffeine free, even the cola flavor.

Here's how the flavors break down:

Veri Ginger Ale harnesses the flavor of Asian ginger and finds the perfect balance of
spice, sweetness, and light carbonation.

Veri Orange is made with 12% real orange juice from oranges grown in Mexico and
Turkey.

Veri Cola delivers the subtle taste of cola with hints of cinnamon and real lemon juice.

Veri Lemon Lime is created with real juice from organic lemons and limes to deliver a
truly refreshing taste.

I decided to make a fun, very quick drink that is fancy without being fussy. It's perfect for kids and adults alike (but you could certainly make it an "adult beverage" by adding your favorite spirit!). I hope you enjoy it.

Brighten Your Water Routine With Dasani!


By Meg Hodson

I received complimentary samples of Dasani Drops and Dasani Sparkling in exchange for my review. All opinions remain 100% my own.

I love water, yet I don't drink enough of it. Does this happen to you, too? I always have good intentions, yet it's always some sort of excuse: I forgot my water bottle, I'm too busy, I will catch up later. But I've got to be better about it, I know this is true. 

Well, Dasani is making it a whole lot easier for me to get my water in! They recently have launched two delicious products to pretty much eliminate any excuses for not drinking your water. Dasani has had a line of sparkling water in berry, lime, and lemon, but recently introduced black cherry to the line-up. For me, this was the perfect drink to throw into a cup with ice on my morning commute or for a refreshing drink after a workout. I usually am not a huge sparkling water fan, but the Dasani sparkling water is delicious. It's lightly carbonated, unsweetened, has no artificial flavors, and has zero calories. I felt like I was having a treat. It is the perfect drink when you also want to carve out some "me" time to relax and refresh. 


Dasani Drops is their newest way to enhance water anytime, anywhere. They are unsweetened, naturally flavored, with no added colors and zero calories. It comes in two great flavors, Strawberry Basil and Lime. I actually gave these to my kids to try. They love water and it's not usually a problem getting them to drink enough. But it's always nice to have something new to try, putting a new twist on something you enjoy. They loved the flavors, even when I said the strawberry also had basil. I even put a few drops in their water bottles for soccer and baseball practice.



Best of all, I have a deal for you where you can try these new products for a good deal at Target. For a limited time, special coupons via the Target Cartwheel app are available. It's super easy to save deals via the Cartwheel app to your phone and it's quick and easy to use them when shopping at Target.
