Friday Food Find: When Life Gives You Lemons…

I’ll admit I’ve gotten a lot of ‘lemons’ from life lately – nothing to REALLY complain about, just that I’ve been more busy than I could ever imagine with classes. I also got a bit dehydrated in this hot hot Texas sun and went through a whole ‘hmmm what is wrong with me?’ freakout at the doctor’s office. Luckily nothing is seriously wrong – I just had an infection which dehydration made much worse, and was forced to temporarily lay off the caffeine, alcohol and sugar (yes, everything good in life). I was also told to drink as much water as is humanly possible.

The thing is, I’m just not a huge H20 drinker – normally I’ll have maybe a glass or two a day (I know, that’s horrible). Regardless, I’ve been forced to change my ways. I’ve been drinking about 8-9 glass daily now, and after going on an “all water” beverage diet, I was looking for something else to drink…which is when I discovered this wonderful lemonade!

Let’s be honest, the bottle is definitely what caught my eye.  I picked up the diet version wondering (and hoping) that it was made with Stevia as opposed to Aspartame or some other artificial sweetener and to my surprise it was! I was pleased to find that there was only one ingredient on the list that I was unfamiliar with – erythritol, which I later read occurs naturally in some fruits and fermented foods so I figured it can’t be that bad right?

The lemonade is super refreshing and delicious – and only 20 calories a bottle! Another thing I liked about it was the fact that I could see bits of pulp from the lemon juice floating around the bottom of the bottle, which in my mind showed that it was REAL lemonade. I think this would make for a wonderful cocktail mixer as well as just being an awesome drink on it’s own!

I for one agree with the bottle caps – Hubert’s Lemonade causes joy (for me at least) so try it out!

Drink up & enjoy!
