Vince hooked me up with a M13 Wellbeing juice.  I'm not the type of person that would go out and drop a chunk of change on a 225 ml functional juice.  On the M13 website they retail a 3 pack for $15.99 and a 12 pack for $52.99. When I think of a functional juice, I kind of expected it to have a medicine taste.  I was wrong, It tasted like tart raspberry juice with a hint of black currant.  I like things that are tart and sour, so this was good for me.  It was really easy to go down and it didn't taste how I thought it would.  

Dr. Sunny Lee, a Vancouver physician of traditional Chinese medicine is the creator of M13.  Dr. Lee practices acupuncture and herbology in Vancouver and he received Traditional Chinese Medicine training at the renowned Institute of Chinese Medicine in Hong Kong.  

Here is some information from the M13 website.  
The M13 Wellbeing is formulated for balanced health, daily.  It delivers sustained, caffeine-free energy support and works to harmonize internal body systems.  As the equalizer of the Functional Juice family, Wellbeing focuses on daily health maintenance, mental clarity and defense against illness.

There are 2 other all natural functional juices from M13 (Assistance and Calm/Detox) that I would like to try one day.

A M13 a day keeps the doctor away.

There's a new G in town

I really like what Gatorade has got going on.  I think the new packaging and identity of the "G" logo is very appealing.  It's simple and eye catching, while still keeping the signature lightning bolt.  When it's side by side in a store cooler with a selection of different Gatorade flavours, it really stands out.    

the only question I have is...What's G?

The cans are back in town

Check out my earlier post about San Pellegrino sodas.  

It was only a matter of time in which the San Pellegrino sodas return to Canada in cans.  Looking very sharp with the top of the cans all wrapped in foil.   

Just in time for the summer...welcome back.

1992 - 2009

I've written about Stewart's Ginger Beer in one of my earlier posts.  Today I was told that Stewart's will be discontinuing their Ginger Beer flavour.  I've tried several different ginger beers in the past and I've got to say that Stewart's was one of my favorites - smooth, with a spicy ginger taste that was just so perfect.  I can't believe it's discontinued.  

I should get some tips from this boy and create my own ginger beer.
