Drink Chia Review && Rafflecopter Giveaway!

I love to try new and different things. I love to find new companies I'd never heard of before with exciting products I might never have thought to try. Drink Chia is one of those new companies and exciting products. Before I get into my review I'd like to share their Company Mission with you because I think it's inspiring! I'm going to steal it word for word directly from their site because I can't rephrase it to sound any better. 

"We are guided by the relentless focus to inspire people to be 
engaged in their health, try new things, seek adventure, and be 
active in their communities.
Everything begins with our “Shake it Baby” concept. It implies 
two things:
1. To shake the drink up, and

2. To get out and make things happen, to do something productive
 and meaningful, to make a difference.

We don’t want the seeds to settle in the bottle…settling implies 
going nowhere, being complacent. So…
Be active, be mindful of your health, your family, and the world 
around you!"

So now onto my review. I happily received 4 Drink Chia beverages in "B Meyer" Lemon, Honeysuckle Pear, Strawberry Citrus, and Mango Tangerine. This drink packs A LOT of Chia Seeds! I had a small taste testing with Amber and Sarah where we each tried about 1/4 Cup of each the "B Meyer" Lemon and Strawberry Citrus. The Chia Seeds definitely take some adjusting. You gotta make sure you are expecting them. They are tiny soft squishy balls of seeds, and if you aren't expecting them they can hit your gag reflex quick. They remind me of pearl tapioca in pudding. However, I am not a fan of tapioca pudding due to the clumps and Anthony loves it, but in the case of the seeds in Drink Chia I could tolerate them. Anthony didn't even come close. As for the flavors I'm not normally a big fan of lemon, but I didn't mind the "B Meyer" Lemon flavor and I like the Strawberry Citrus.
My mom and I tried the Honeysuckle Pear and Mango Tangerine Drink Chia drinks. I poured us each 1/2 bottle so we would drink one full bottle in total but have the opportunity to try both flavors together. Even though we both knew what to expect a full bottle is a bit to much. Mom hated it. I should have started with the Mango Tangerine because I wasn't a huge fan of the Honeysuckle Pear flavor, and after downing a half a bottle of that I had a hard time finishing the 1/2 bottle of Mango Tangerine. I did like the flavor of the Mango Tangerine. The Chia Seeds are just a little intense. 
Incredibly all four flavors have only 40 calories and 1.5g of fat per 8 fl oz bottle. 
If Drink Chia has you intrigued I strongly urge you to try it out. Everyone likes and dislikes different things so just because I'm not in love with it, doesn't mean you wont be. A sample pack which includes all four flavors will only cost you $2.95 plus shipping so there really isn't much to lose! You can order the sample pack here.  If you do try it let me know what you think!

  2. I learned that this drink has been featured in the Clean Eating magazine. I'm intrigued about this drink!

  4. I would love to try Drink Chia. The chia seeds are an excellent food to hydrate. The seeds when exposed to water traped it inside in some form of gel that when inside the digestive system is removed slowly. In mexico is very common to consume Chia in the lemonade and it's very refreshing and tasty

  5. I learned that Chia seeds can absorb 9 to 12 times their weight in water! So interesting!
    Thank You for the giveaway
