Izze soda…too good to be true?
I can’t stand how delicious Izze soda is. From the colorful packaging, to the healthy ingredients, to the phenomenal taste, I thought Izze might be too good to be true.
I tried my first Izze several years back. I was never a soda drinker, but I was on vacation and thought I would try something “special” so I grabbed a bright orange Izze Clementine “sparkling juice” from the case and popped it open. Wow.
It tasted so good I was afraid to look at the ingredients. Afraid I would find high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors or colors. Or worse…find out that Izze is a subsidiary of Coke .
I was amazed at what I found:
- all natural ingredients
- 70% pure fruit juice
- no artificial anything
- 2 servings of fruit in every bottle
- started in 2002 by two guys who wanted to make a great drink and give back to the world
- they got the name “Izze” from one of the founders daughter’s name, Isabelle…come on…I mean…come on…it doesn’t get cuter than that!
