I was introduced to Get More drinks at Blog On Cymru earlier this year. Get More is a low calorie vitamin water from More Drinks. I loved the idea behind these drinks – great tasting, low calorie drinks which can give your vitamin levels a boost. They seemed ideal for someone like me – a busy mum, always on the go, so I decided to try out their entire range.
There are five different flavours, and each one contains different vitamins or minerals. The “Lemon and Lime” is probably my favourite. This is a sparkling citrus flavoured water which is fortified with vitamins B1, B3, B5, B6, B7, B12 and C, and also Magnesium and Zinc. It has a really refreshing taste and only has 7 calories in the entire bottle. The Sparkling Blackcurrant and Blueberry is fortified with Vitamin A and the Sparkling Orange contains Vitamin C. There are two still drinks – the Apple Raspberry is fortified with B vitamins and the Mango and Passionfruit contains Vitamins D and Calcium. None of these drinks contain any added sugar or any more than 7 calories per bottle.
I tend to drink a lot of cola, but I have been wanting to cut down on caffeine so these drinks provided me with a really nice alternative. With the beautiful sunny weather we have been having at the moment, one of these straight out of the fridge was really refreshing and I found myself reaching for one of these in preference to the usual sugary, fizzy drinks. They were also great to take out and about with me: for long car journeys or part of a picnic. They would be perfect to pop into a gym bag. I don’t believe my diet means that I am deficient in any vitamins or minerals, but it is good to know that drinking these may be topping up my levels when I need them to.
I was initially quite sceptical about how good these drinks would taste as my experience of “flavoured water” has always been either lacking in taste or any that were full of flavour also came with a really sweet after taste. Get More have lovely, clean flavours but are still light and refreshing. I was really pleasantly surprised by the first mouthful, and I wasn’t disappointed by any of the five flavours.
More Drinks also do “A Little More” – which is a low calorie flavoured water for children. However, as Freyja was completely unwilling to try water that had any flavour to it, I was unable to get her opinion on it!
Disclaimer: I was sent a selection of the Get More drinks to try but, as always, this review reflects my honest opinion – I really loved these drinks!
