Special Consideration to the Baddish Group (http://thebaddishgroup.com/) for providing the samples for the product review. All opinions are my own.
When it comes to food and beverages, I’d like to say I am a pretty informed consumer. I’ve known for years that drink companies have added different types of vitamins and minerals to beverages to make them healthier, and hopefully more appealing to the people who drink them. Some lines of beverages have built their entire reputations on being a healthier alternative to the traditional soft drink.
The biggest complaint I hear from so many people I know is the following: ” I know I’m supposed to drink more, but I hate plain water! I need what I drink to taste good!” Sound familiar? If I may, I’d like to suggest you try Sneaky Pete’s Oat Drinks.
Even I was skeptical at first: who put oats in a drink? I’ve heard all about the benefits from oats and oat fiber, but this was something completely outside the box for me. When I was given a chance to review it. I didn’t hesitate. I decided that not only would I try it, I’d set up an informal tasting panel of eight people whose ages ranged from 5 to 70 to assist me. This way I could get other people’s opinions as well. I was given one bottle of Apple and one of Peach to sample. Putting both into clear plastic cups, I gave one of each sample to each member of my group. Here are the results:
Out of 8 people, 5 liked the Peach flavor better, 2 liked the Apple flavor, and 1 person liked both equally. The people who prefered the Peach flavor liked the ‘sweet, clear, very peachy’ flavor. Those who liked the Apple were pleased with the ‘fact that it tasted like apple-cinnamon oatmeal.”
I was more impressed with the following: Per 12 oz bottle, Sneaky Pete’s only had 40 calories, 5 grams of sugar in the entire bottle, and 3 grams of oat fiber. Most of the time, a bottle of equal size has at least double the amount of sugar and at least one and a half times the amount of calories. The very best fact: there is nothing artificial in the beverage. No artificial sweeteners of any kind.
Sneaky Pete’s comes in 5 different flavors: Peach, Apple, Mango, Raspberry, and Grape. You can order the beverages from their website, http://sneakypetesbeverage.com/ or from a retailer near you http://sneakypetesbeverage.com/about/find-a-stor.
