Izze

Ever had an Izze? I love Izze’s. They are so tasty. My favorite is the Sparkling Clementine. I had one the other night and happened to be reading the bottle….I mean I had read the ingredients before, however, never really READ the bottle. I found that their bottle said:

“Each bottle delivers almost three servings of fruit based on the USDA’s 2005 Dietary Guidelines. The guidelines say you should get the majority of your daily fruit from whole fruit. So, love IZZE but eat fruit too.”

What I liked about this is that they are promoting you to eat whole fruit and not to supplement fruit by drinking an Izze. Over all I think these drink products are healthy. They have no refined or added sugars, no caffeine and are 70% fruit juice with a “splash” of sparkling water. Izze’s would also be a better nutritious choice over a soda when you feel like drinking something bubbly, but of course …drink in moderation!
