I recently purchased Zenergize, which is a sparkling raspberry green tea beverage! It comes in a little box with 10 tablets, which you can add to a water bottle or glass of water. So far I think it's really neat. I love diet sodas, but I try to not drink a lot of them since they aren't great for you. I do like green tea, but I CRAVE the fizziness and carbonation of soda. I don't care for plain sparkling water, only the flavored kinds. This product contains no artificial flavors, colors, or ingredients, so I figured why not give it a try? The tablets are made with green tea extract, caffeine, stevia leaf extract (I know there are mixed reviews about this product), and chromium, plus vitamin C. It reminds me of a flavored sprite with a slight green tea taste. Oh yeah, only 2 calories! It was $6.99, so more than other drink flavors you would add to water, but it was cheaper than having to buy 10 bottles of individual beverages for sure. Plus, it's fizzy, so it's unique.
I love how green tea makes me feel. I know many green tea products (including this one) advertise weight loss and metabolism boost, but I do it more for the energy boost and to get rid of excess water weight from bloating.
I just wanted to share that this product seems kind of neat. It seems like a good alternative to sodas for me since I struggle with giving up sodas! Have any of you tried any similar drinks? I know Lipton or Nestea (I forget which!) makes a sparkling diet green tea, but I don't know if this one has artificial ingredients and flavors in it. This one tastes good and seems like a healthier choice than soda, makes me feel great, and I have to admit I like the pink color
The only downside is that you have to wait for the tablet to dissolve, but it dissolves pretty quickly. I didn't even realize it was a fizzy beverage when purchasing it, so it was a pleasant surprise!
I've also seen ZipFizz energy drinks... have any of you tried these? They are packets that you add to water as well as little energy shots. I'll admit that I do love diet energy drinks (Lo Carb Monster and Zero Carb Rockstar are my favorite), but I've love to swap them for something a little more natural and better for me! I eat good foods and drink mostly water, but I do notice that I sometimes feel a little energy crash from sodas, even if they are sugar-free.
