Ended- Fruit2O Essentials Review & Giveaway

I recently got to try Fruit2O Essentials and they are delicious! I have been in love with flavored water every since I was a child. It was the only way my parents could get me to drink water because I didn't like the taste. So, I have had a lot of flavored water! Fruit2O Essentials is by far my new favorite. First of all, as I said they taste delicious. They managed to take the taste of a delicious, ripe fruit..magnify the taste..and then bottle it. Fruit2O Essentials taste better than the original fruits do! That isn't even the best part. These yummy drinks all have ZERO CALORIES! They are also packed with enough nutrients to equal 2 servings of fruit. Wow!

Here is the breakdown of flavors and nutrients:

*Cherry Acai- Manganese, Phosphorous, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6
*Blueberry Pomegranate- Manganese, Vitamin E, Vitamin B6, Phosphorus, Potassium
 *Cranberry Raspberry- Manganese, Zinc, Vitamin E, Phosphorus, Potassium
*Strawberry Kiwi- Manganese, Vitamin E, Phosphorus, Vitamin B6
*Citrus- Phosphorus, Potassium, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6
*Peach Mango- Vitamin E, Vitamin B6, Manganese, Phosphorus, Vitamin B5 

I had to restrain myself not to drink all 6 at once! The Cherry Acai was my favorite flavor followed by the Blueberry Pomegranate. The only flavor that I didn't like was the Peach Mango and I think that was just because I don't personally like Peach. The other 5 were delicious. I was also amazed because my husband stole the Citrus one shortly after I opened it. My husband normally won't drink or eat anything that is clear with flavor (don't ask). It is also hard for me to get him to eat enough fruit. So, I will be buying these for both of us in the future. One last thing I have to tell you guys about is the packaging. When I received my Fruit2O Essentials it was packaged like fruit! I took some pictures for you all to see.


Super cute! I also received a reusable shopping bag and shopping list. Here they are:
