Emergen-C Review and Giveaway


In this cold and flu season, it's so important to make sure our kids are getting their vitamins. Now, there's a fun, new way to make that happen.

Emergen-C Kidz offers a complete multi-vitamin and multi-mineral fizzy drink mix for kids that comes in three flavors: Orange Pineapple Explosion, Strawnanaberry Blast and Cherry Yumberry. And one of the most interesting aspects of these drinks is that kids were involved in every part of the development process, from the taste to the name to the package design!

Emergen-C contains powerful antioxidants and 24 essential nutrients like vitamin C (500 mg), beta carotene, vitamin E, zinc and iron. There's also calcium, vitamin D and phosphorus to help build strong bones and teeth, and choline to support healthy brain function. Each package has 250 mg of real fruit juice powders and there are no artificial flavors.

My kids tested out the Strawnanaberry Blast and Orange Pineapple Explosion flavors. We followed the directions and added 6 oz. of water to the mix. However, over time, we've found that diluting it with more water makes it taste much better.

I tried the drink myself and neither my kids nor I could detect much of a fizz. Despite that, we all enjoyed it and they now mix up the drink all on their own (I made sure to tell them to limit it to one glass a day).

Want to try it out for yourself? Thanks to Emergen-C and Murphy O'Brien, one lucky person will win a basket filled with Emergen-C Kidz as well as regular Emergen-C products for moms and dads.

To enter, simply leave a comment on this post and be sure there is an email that can be found or your entry will have to be disqualified. For a bonus entry, blog about this contest with a link to this post and to Emergen-C, then leave a separate comment here with your link.

Deadline to enter is 11:59 EST, Wednesday, November 19, 2008. Winner will be selected at random using Random.org and posted here and contacted by email. Winner has two weeks to respond to notification or the prize is forfeited.

Good luck!

I am a firm believer in the benefits of vitamins. Vitamin C is excellent for preventing colds during the winter. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

I love Emergen-C! When my first child was born my very holistically inclined aunt brought me a box of orange flavored Emergen-C. She said it was good for my immune system and my health after having the baby. That stuff was great! We have bought many more boxes since. I like to just suck on the fizzy tablets.

I am a big fan of Emergen-C.

I love the orange flavor.

If you want the fizz add it to a very small amount of water and then right after juice or water can be taken.

I'm a tried and true firm believer of the great benefits of Emergen-C. I'm presently undergoing chemo and don't have much of an immune system and Emergen-C gives me a boost of energy as well as great vitamins that my body needs.
I also like that they now have a good selection of different flavors.
Thank you for the great giveaway.

I am really impressed with this Emergen-C Kidz product. It would give me great peace of mind to know that my 3 young children were getting all the vitamin 3 and other essential vitamins and nutrients that they need in order for them to stay healthy, especially during cold and flu season. And, the flavors sound terrific and I know my children would enjoy them (Mom and Dad too)!

I have trouble getting dd to take her vitamins, this might get something into her.

I am a soprano in my church choir, and I'm supposed to sing a solo for our Christmas program. Unfortunately, between the months of November to March I always seem to get this nonstop cold that knocks an octave off the top of my vocal range; this year if I can't find a cure we'll have to cut my solo out. Maybe this would work! Wouldn't hurt to try.

thanks
