True Citrus Review and Giveaway

Are you drinking the recommended 8 glasses of water a day?  I am trying but at times, I just feel like I want something a little more flavorful then just water.  I'm not a fan of the usual chemical filled "flavor your water" powders but sometimes struggle to consume all 8 glasses of my daily goal.  In the Summer I slice fresh cucumber, mint and ginger in my water but sometimes don't have fresh ingredients handy.  I was pretty excited to discover the line of versatile True Citrus products, which gives my water a little taste and adds the benefit of Vitamin C as well.  
What is True Citrus?  Crystallized lemon, grapefruit, orange and lime for beverages, recipes and tea.  It's made from 100% all natural ingredients, contains no artificial colors, additives or preservatives.  If you are not familiar with the True Citrus Line of Products here is some key facts:

  • True Citrus Products contain no artificial sweeteners, preservatives, colors, sodium or gluten
  • Contains 25% of an adult's vitamin c requirements
  • Made with lemon oils, juices and stevia 
  • 5 calories per serving
  • Contains no phenylketonurics
  • They don't spoil like other liquid citrus juice products could
  • Great for cooking, baking and adult beverages.  
  • Portable, shelf stable and economical
While I never considered baking with True Citrus before, after I checked out some of the recipes on their website, I was intrigued.  Lemon Monkey Bread, Spicy Mexican Soup and Thai Peanut Sauce are all on my radar!  Their products are versatile and a great staple, especially for those who love the flavor of fresh citrus like I do!   I definitely think that these all natural True Citrus products will come in handy just in time for the busy holiday baking and entertaining season!

If you want to learn more about True Citrus products, check them out here or become a fan on Facebook, follow on Twitter, check them out on YouTube and Pinterest to be "in the know" and use their store locator to find where you can get some of your own!  And, the folks over at True Citrus are giving away a generous True Gift to a lucky Barefoot by the Sea reader!  Your gift will include....

  1. Oooo grapefruit looks new! Love the lemon - used to drive all over when we are on vacation so I could buy this at the store!

  2. Interesting! I am a big water drinker, but I am sure this would be a nice addition. And especially in the winter when I want to drink more hot things, hot water without flavor isn't very good :-) I think the lime is what I would like to try most!
