Activate Drinks Review- 05.13.08
Activate Drinks… the packaging grabbed me when i heard about this a few weeks back, and i couldn’t resist giving them a spin in person… a 4 pack of these Activate Drinks showed up today, and while it feels gimmicky, the graphic design on the bottle/site/case are nice and clean… and the cap was fun to play with!
Basically, they claim that vitamins lose their potency in water over time - so to keep things fresh, the vitamins are stored in the cap. When ready, you twist the blue part of the cap, releasing what looks like Tang/Crystal Light into the water, give it a bit of a shake, and *poof* you’ve made your own Vitamin Water. So far i only tasted the Orange one, and yes it was a bit like tang… I even made a quick little video for you on the next page to take a look at how it works, and pics of the cap before and after breaking, so you can see exactly how it holds/releases the powder.
In all honesty, with everyone i’ve been talking to about these, they keep asking me why you wouldn’t just use the Crystal Light To Go packets… both have 0 carbs and 5 calories. Really i guess this gimmick is just kind of fun, but i suppose not the most eco friendly in our time of so many people being more and more anti-bottled water. OH, and i couldn’t resist, so i tried breaking one bottle open without pouring powder in it, and it IS just water. In case you were curious.
