During BlogHer in July, Ellen and I had a lot of fun at the Honest Tea booth in the expo hall with our new buddy, Dan. It was definitely one of our favorite stops! During that conversation I learned more about Honest Kids, an organic juice drink for kids that are sweetened only with fruit juice. Available in five varieties, each has 30-42% organic fruit juice depending on variety.
I don’t allow my kids to drink a lot of juice but this always gets tricky when on the go and especially with school. They receive milk automatically for snack time at school and breakfast and dinner at home. That doesn’t leave me a lot of options for lunch so they have some variety. I was very interested in seeing what my kids thought of this water/juice combo and Honest Tea was kind enough to send me samples try them out.
We used them for our picnic in the park last week and they were perfect! They do open a little differently as they don’t actually have a specific hole in which to put the straw. Instead, you simply puncture the pouch with a straw, wherever you like in the top. As far as the taste, the boys absolutely love them and consider them just as good as a 100% juice variety. (Actually, they don’t even realize that it is essentially watered down juice and treat the them same.) Both my husband and I tried them out and found them quite refreshing. I love knowing that they are getting an organic option that has a lot less sugar than a traditional juice pouch.
And Honest Tea couldn’t send me an Honest Kids package without including some goodies for me as well. I really loved all three varieties about equally. Raspberry Fields , a Whole Foods exclusive, is wonderfully flavored tea that isn’t overly sweet and is the perfect amount of raspberry without being overpowering. My kids and I also loved the Orange Mango Honest Ade which has only 100 calories per bottle but you’d never know it with the taste. Refreshing and even contains 100% of your recommended daily vitamin C. The Peach White Tea is a bit sweeter than the Raspberry Fields but again, isn’t over the top either. Love this flavor combination.
Look for Honest Tea products at retailers nationwide! Bottle products retail for around $1.50 each and the pouches for under $4 a box. I even found Honest Kids pouches on sale at Target this week for only $3 a box! Use their store locator to find a retailer in your community!
Honest Tea wants to help you kick off the new school year right with 30 Days of Honest Kids, although there is enough product here for three months of school! The package also includes the bottled Honest Tea and Honest Ade varieties mentioned.
- 10 boxes of Honest Kids Pouches (2 boxes of each flavor)
- 4 bottles of Honest Tea (Raspberry Fields and Peach White Tea)
