I was recently asked to review a range of soft drinks by new brand Life Tonics. I'll be honest, when I heard the phrase 'soft drinks' I almost turned them down because I imagined sugar-laden fizzy sodas or fake-healthy juices. However, a quick read of the press release reassured me that this wasn't the case, so I agreed to sample their new product...and I'm so glad I did!
Life Tonics drinks are a mixture of coconut water and natural fruit extracts. They're also enriched with vitamins and minerals and sweetened with Stevia – a natural sweetener – rather than sugar or artificial sweeteners. They have an isotonic formulation, meaning they help to enhance the absorption of water during physical exercise, making them an effective way to rehydrate your body during and after a workout.
They come in three different flavours – coconut & mint, dalandan orange and elderberry & juniper. They're all so delicious (the mint one was both my and my husband's favourite, in fact we fought over it) that you can't even tell they're good for you – they taste like regular fruit drinks which are often full of sugar and not so health-friendly. And at just 90 calories per bottle, you can't really go wrong.
I also want to note that I love the packaging – as you can see, it's bright, fun and eye catching. I'm really happy that these drinks found their way into my life and will definitely be purchasing the coconut & mint flavour when I come across it.
If you fancy trying Life Tonics drinks, they retail at £1.49 for a 500ml bottle and can be found in WH Smith Travel nationwide right now and Waitrose stores within the next couple of weeks.
