I ♥ coffee.
Let me rephrase that… I LOVE COFFEE!!!
I wouldn’t say I’m addicted (or at least I won’t admit to it). I just enjoy it. I can drink it morning, noon and night.
I love to try different kinds of coffees. When it comes to my day to day drink I usually go for a Colombian or Breakfast blend.
Once the weather gets warmer I tend to start craving ice coffee. I try to keep the cost down by making it at home on my Keurig, but most of the time I zip over to my nearest Dunkin Donuts and pick one up. Ice coffee is a great little “pick me up”.
I was asked if I wanted to review a product called RealBeanz. RealBeanz is a coffee drink. Needless to say I jumped on the opportunity. If there is coffee involved you know I want to be involved.
Here is a little information about RealBeanz;
RealBeanz believes that an iced coffee beverage should do more than just satisfy your taste buds – it ought to help you get through the day and enhance your lifestyle without subjecting your body to harmful chemicals or unhealthy ingredients. With RealBeanz you can enjoy a refreshing beverage without loading up on unhealthy chemicals or artificial ingredients
That is why they have taken a different approach in creating their remarkable product line of iced coffees. Whether it’s powering up with energy-infused herbs or slowing down with relaxing floral extracts, RealBeanz utilizes a blend of 100% natural ingredients in a flavorful coffee blend that’ll help brew the lifestyle you desire. RealBeanz uses premium brewed coffee, fresh reduced-fat milk, naturally wholesome ingredients, remarkable flavors and enhanced with vitamins and potent herbs for the best in health and flavor.
RealBeanz knows that people are seeking coffee-based beverages that are big on flavor, high on quality and perfect for your health-conscious lifestyle.
So in a nutshell ReaBeanz is premium flavored coffee and more. Some blends are created to help you relax while others were made to give you more energy. That sounds great to me. But how do RealBeanz beverages taste?
RealBeanz sent me samples of all of their RealBeanz beverages.
Cappuccino, Diet Cappuccino, Caramel, Cappuccino made with Coconut Water, Ice Coffee (Dark Roast) made with Coconut Water, Mocha and Vanilla Nut.
Each flavor has a variety of different health benefits ranging from: Energize, Refresh, Resist, Focus, Trim & Fit, Relax, and Relax.
Vanilla Nut is by far my favorite of all the blends. I don’t really taste much of a nutty flavor, but you can certainly taste the Vanilla.
I won’t mention the other brand by name, but the Vanilla Nut RealBeanz beverage tastes exactly like a popular, big name brand who also offers their coffee in bottles. Flavor wise they are exactly alike. However as far as the ingredients goes the RealBeanz is the better choice. Not only is it decaffeinated (a better option for unwinding in the evening) but is also contains Chamomile, Lemon Balm and Passion Flower. You cannot taset the added ingredients. They are meant to work “behind the scenes” to help calm and relax your body and mind.
I have never had coconut water before. I hear that it’s good for you and has several health benefits. I see people drinking bottles of coconut water when I’m out and about just like they would regular water.
The first time I took a sip of the Cappuccino made with Coconut Water I wasn’t keen about it at all. I always give products that I review a fair chance to I took several most sips. The most I sipped it the more I liked it. It’s not bad at all. I prefer the other RealBeanz flavors over the coconut water ones, but if someone were to hand me another bottle I would certainly drink it.
The only one I didn’t care for at all was the Diet Cappuccino. I don’t know. It felt like it needed something. It seemed a bit watered down and not very flavorful, compared to the other RealBeanz drinks.
Next to the Vanilla Nut the Mocha was my next favorite. If you like Mocha then you will love this drink. It has a nice, bold Mocha flavor.
I also enjoyed the Caramel flavor. I am a huge fan of caramel to being with (especially sea salted caramel). This drink delivered a flavorful caramel flavor.
I didn’t really notice anything as far as feeling more energized, but some of the flavors (like the Vanilla Nut) I did find very soothing and relaxing. I enjoyed them in the evening after dinner and when I was ready to settle down for the night. I attribute the relaxing feelings I had from the added ingredients (Chamomile, Lemon Balm and Passion Flower).
Another thing I like about the RealBeanz drinks is that they come in convenient on-the-go bottles. I kept a few in the fridge to chill them and the rest in the pantry until I was ready to chill them. They are great for tucking into your lunch or grabbing when you are rushing out the door.
If you like ice coffee and enjoy drinking different flavors/blends of coffee, then you’ll certainly want to check out RealBeanz. If you are going to enjoy ice coffee why not enjoy it with some added health benefits as well as better-for-you ingredients.
