Review: Welch's Refreshingly Simple Juice

I had received a new campaign from Bzzagent a while back. It was about Welch's Refreshingly Simple flavored juice beverage.

I received a full size bottle of Welch's Refreshingly simple juice in Strawberry raspberry flavor and coupons to pass along. 

Whenever I buy food products or beverages, I always read the ingredients first. So, the first thing I noticed is that it is made of different juice concentrates. Secondly, there were no artificial preservatives, no high fructose corn syrup and no artificial sweeteners. 

After learning about the ingredients, I was really eager to taste it. So, I poured some in my glass, the color of juice was light red in color. 

I took one sip and then I took one more and then I couldn't stop. My reaction was "OMG! its so refreshing!" . It is a blend of apple, white grape, strawberry and raspberry juices from concentrate, thats why, its not very tangy or tart in taste. It has right amount of sweetness, little bit tartness without the overpowering taste of raspberry. 

I am not a huge fan of tart beverages, so, this was a instant hit for me. It gives me refreshing feel, when I drinks it. It is made up of simple ingredients and has nothing that I don't want. I loved it.

It is also available in variety of other flavors like Peach Mango, Concord Grape, Orange Pineapple Apple and Passion fruit. Peach mango is next on my list. The 59 oz. bottle is $2.99 and 8 oz. six packs is $3.49 available at retailers like Walmart, Publix and Kroger. Learn more at

You can drink it in morning, quench your thirst while on the go or serve your guests. Its is perfect for all occasions. 

Disclosure: I have got free product in exchange of my honest review. I have not been compenstaed in any other way.

Review: TAZO Chai

Drinking tea is an important part of my life. I have survived waking up early morning for my school and college examinations by drinking a cup of strong Indian tea. It was kind of our daily routine in my house when my mother would prepare tea for all of us and then will wake us up. But now I am married, so, I learnt how to prepare tea from my mother and now I make and serve it my hubby. The tea is an important part of Indian culture, you can say;mostly consumed beverage, where people make their own tea by using tea leaves and other spices. Although, I am used to making my own tea by boiling black tea leaves in water, then adding milk, sugar and other spices like cardamom and ginger, boil it well and then strain it. But It takes lot of time, typically it takes me around 15 minutes. 

Yes, that's how I make tea because you have to thoroughly boil the ingredients then only you will get the feel of all the flavors. Trust me, when my hubby goes office early in the morning the thought of having an instant tea kind of thing has crossed my mind thousand times. So, that people like me who want to drink tea but with all the spices can enjoy the tea without compromising the flavors.
Then, I was introduced to Tazo chai. If you too want to enjoy the cup of Chai, don't worry, you don't have to go to India because Tazo Chai has brought all those flavors and experience to the United States. The Chai word is very familiar to me but I know many of you may have never heard about it. But If you have any Indian Friend then you  may have heard this word from him/her. The word "Chai" means "Tea" in Hindi(the native language of India). Tazo company describes chai as a blend of strong black Assam and exotic spices sourced from around the world.
Tazo Chai began with their signature Chai tea in filter bags and then developed the smooth and creamy latte concentrates. Since they first came up with this idea of chai, they are gradually trying to introduce new flavors like flavor of pumpkin and others. This gives more options for the consumers to choose, hence, everyone can enjoy the Chai in the flavor they want.
I tried the three flavors in filterbags. They were TAZO Chai chocolate, TAZO chai Classic and TAZO chai vanilla caramel. I took slightly hot water and put the filterbags into it. I didn't add sugar in it because I want to try the flavors as it is but you can add milk or sugar If you want.

 1. TAZO Chai Chocolate

  • Color- It will give rich, dark color 
  • Aroma- The moment I put the filterbag into hot water, I could feel the aroma of chocolate which feels nice.
  • Taste- Strong taste. It tastes more like a chocolate drink yet not sweet and creamy. I could also feel the taste of other spices in it.

2. TAZO Chai Classic

  • Color- Dark reddish- brown.
  • Aroma- It tastes more like what I makes at home. The aroma was not too strong yet you can smell the cardamom and cinnamon aroma in it.
  • Taste- Mild in taste. 

3. TAZO Chai Vanilla Caramel Chai

  • Color- Dark Reddish-brown color
  • Aroma- The moment I put the filterbag into hot water, I immediately felt the strong aroma of vanilla, caramel, cardamom and ginger. This has a distinct aroma than the upper two but really loved it. 
  • Tastes- Strong taste with the blend of vanilla and caramel taste.

I also bought and tried the Tazo Chai latte concentrate in Organic chai flavor with the free coupon that I received.

I added half latte concentrate and half milk in a pot and boiled it because I like my tea hot but that is not necessary. When I boiled it, I could sense the rich aroma of all the spices in it and it is mild in taste. You can also make Iced tea with it by adding milk and ice into the TAZO chai latte concentrates. Its super easy and very very tasty.

Review: Folgers Flavors™ coffee enhancers #FolgersFans

Fall is here at its full glory. The cold winds, rustling and bustling of dried leaves along with whistling wind  is too common nowadays. Now, the weather is getting cold here and I am spending more time inside, It would be better to say on my couch, in my Pjs and a cup of coffee :)
When the winter comes, the consumption of coffee increases in my household. Although we drink tea twice a day whole year with occasional coffee cups in summer. But in winter, drinking coffee is just part of our everyday routine. Coffee is my travel drink too because I can make it quickly and fill the cup up. 
Folgers Flavors coffee enhancer has arrived just at the right time. As If they knew that I am going to drink more coffee now, lol :)

Folgers is a well known brand which makes coffee and other delicious coffee related products. They have come up with four flavored coffee enhancers, these flavors are:
  • Hazelnut
  • Mocha
  • Caramel
  • Vanilla

I brewed my coffee in the basic model of coffee maker that I have. After pouring the coffee in my cup, I added hot whole milk and mixed it well. I didn't add sugar as I wanted to taste it with flavor without sugar. So, I squeezed small amount of Folgers Flavors Coffee enhancer in caramel from bottle into the cup, mixed it. As, I added little first and I couldn't feel the taste of caramel. So, I added a generous amount of coffee enhancer again and this time I was able to taste the caramel taste in it and has right amount of sweetness in it. 

Then, I tried hazelnut flavor, it has rich flavor with aroma of hazelnut. I am glad they came up with this flavor, so that I can enjoy the coffeehouse like coffee at my home. 

I order Mocha at Starbucks  all the time, so no wonders, I was excited to try the Mocha flavor. It was yumm,ummm... good!!(The expression when you taste something delicious). The Folgers Flavors coffee enhancer in mocha imparts delicious, chocolaty flavor to the coffee. If you crave chocolate then this flavor is for you.

The Vanilla flavor is less strong than the other three flavors. It is mellow, smooth with a relaxing taste that you want.

I decided to share my aromatic and delish find with my friends, so, I invited my friends to my house for a coffee date. They enjoyed trying these new flavors in their coffee.

The best things about Folgers Flavors Coffee enhancers are:
  • Very easy to use- Just squeeze a little amount into your coffee and make it more delicious.
  • Entertaining- Perfect for entertaining guests. This will come handy at the time of holidays when you have guests coming over. Your guests will be impressed.
  • Variety- There are four flavors to choose from, so, pick your flavor and make a cup..
  • Comfort and taste- Now, with Folgers Flavors coffee enhancers, you can enjoy the branded coffeehouse like coffee at the comfort of your home.
  • Easy to keep- You can keep your favorite flavor at office desk, in your purse and can take it with you wherever you go.
