Triple Food Review

For years, my husband has been obsessed with Jarritos soda.  He had only tried a few of the flavors until now when I was sent a case of a bunch of flavors to try.  In fact, there are 11 different flavors: Tamarind, Mandarin, Fruit Punch, Jamaica, Lime, Toronja, Guava, Pineapple, Strawberry, Mango, and Mexican Cola. My husband's favorite is the fruit punch but the most flavor that he tried and loved was the guava.  It is very carbonated but not too sweet.  I love all the bright and fun colors.  Also, this pop has been around for over 60 years! I'm not really a pop person so I leave all the pop drinking up to him but trust me, he is loving this! Thanks Jarritos!

2. Perky Jerky
I am a huge fan of jerky and couldn't wait to try this product. The jerky is much softer than many jerkies which I really liked.  It did not have that toughness.  I love that jerky is full of protein and quick snack on the go.  It would be great for car trips or to eat at work.  Now what is Perky Jerky? It is a  "high protein, ultra-premium, functional food for active lifestyles. We start with premium all natural beef (no MSG, no nitrates), and add our 7 ingredient marinade, which includes Guarana, a little berry from the Amazon that is commonly found in energy drinks." Protein and energy, sign me up! Not only is this good for you but it is tasty too.

3. ecoVegan Review
I was sent the Spicy Bits and the Zen Patties to try from ecoVegan.  I am a fan of the Zen Patties. Each one contains 144 calories, 10 grams of protein, and 4 grams of fiber. It is made primarily of soy and wheat proteins.  I like this product on a bun like a hamburger or crumbled on top of my salad with dressing. The products are all plant based. 
Here is some more info:
◦0g Trans Fat
◦Good Protein Source
◦Free of preservatives
◦No artificial colors or flavors
◦Made with natural, non-GMO ingredients.
These faux meat products are tasty and good for you!

Have you tried any new food or drink products lately?
