¡CACTUS! Organic Cactus Water - Review and Giveaway

 


It's mindboggling to me what can be created with food and drink now days.  Cauliflower as a pizza crust...Milk made from almonds....Water powered by cactus leaf.  But, hey, I'm down to give it a try.

I recently received a six-pack of  ¡CACTUS! Organic Cactus Water.  Can't say I've ever drank cactus water before then, but was excited to try it.  

Powered by USDA-certified organic nopal cactus leaf, ¡CACTUS! contains antioxidants, electrolytes and amino acids to promote absorption and retention in the body. ¡CACTUS!, known as the Desert Hydrator, is available in lime, papaya and watermelon flavors and low in sugar and calories.  It is one of the very few cactus waters on the market that is produced from the cactus leaf rather than prickly pear.

The hydrocolloid in nopal cactus leaf binds to water and acts like a sponge. It is what gives the cactus the ability to absorb and retain water and micronutrients and survive in the scorching desert heat. ¡CACTUS! contains this same hydrocolloid, which boosts hydration, absorption and retention in the human body.

I received two cans of each ¡CACTUS! flavor and set out to try one each day.  I was pleasantly surprised at how well I liked them.  It tastes like regular water, with a hint of flavoring. I don't know if you're supposed to taste any cactus from the drinks, but I didn't.  The flavors were not overpowering.  The drinks are non-carbonated and very refreshing.  I liked all three flavors, with my favorite being watermelon.  

¡CACTUS! is available on Amazon for $17.94 per 6 pack of 12 fluid ounce cans.  ¡CACTUS! is also available in select grocery stores throughout the Southwest, including H-E-B and Raleys.

I would pick Watermelon but would really like a mix pack.

You want to try different products but at the prices you don't want to buy something you would not like. This helps me to know what this and that it taste good

Watermelon is the most appealing to me. Kind of ironic, though, innit? Watermelon in a drink inspired by a cactus??
