Hey Mommies! If you’re looking for an organic, all natural, low calorie, great tasting beverage for your kiddos, check out Giggle drinks!
*Disclaimer: I was given free samples of Giggle drinks to try in exchange for my honest review of the beverage. This post contains my honest opinion of the Giggle drink.
My husband and I significantly changed our eating habits when we found out we were going to be parents. We started doing more research, and moved to a more natural, fresh, organic diet.
We are always on the lookout for healthy, great tasting beverages or soda alternatives and especially something we’d be okay with our son drinking.
Giggle and Hey Mommies connected on Twitter, and I was really excited after reading about their beverage. It sounded great! When Giggle offered to send some samples, I was really thrilled!
Here is a video of my 2 1/2 year old son trying Giggle for the first time. He was not prompted to say anything. This is his true, honest, reaction to the drink. (Spoiler: He really liked it!!)
To summarize the video, in case you don’t have time to watch, my son really likes the orange option. It tastes so good he think it has candy in it!
Of course, my husband and I tried the Giggle drinks too. They currently come in Lemon (Lemonlicious) and Orange (Orangerrific).
Both tasted great, but as adults, we preferred the Lemon flavor. It was a little less sweet and a little more refreshing.
The Orange flavor had a sweeter taste and was a pretty strong/intense flavor. It was good, and I can see why my son liked it more. It just had more of a “kid” type flavor.
In my honest opinion, the Orange almost tasted a little fake or artificially sweetened, but there are NO artificial sweeteners in it or the Lemon so don’t worry about that! It must just be the recipe.
I wouldn’t change it, though, because it was a big hit with my son and kids are who Giggle is geared for. If Giggle can make an organic, all natural, low calorie drink for kids that tastes like candy, I think they’ve got it right!
If you’d like to try some Giggle yourself, you can find it only in California areas at this time.
Locations include Erewhon markets (Calabasas/LA) , Vicente Foods (West LA), Mothers Markets (multiple locations), Pacific Coast Greens (Malibu), Stumps Family Marketplace (San Diego) and almost a dozen more locations around Southern California which are still pending at this time.
Hopefully, Giggle starts spreading to other states soon or offers an option to buy online because these are great drink options for kids and adults! Keep an eye on DrinkGiggle.com for more info!
