I was first introduced to Emergen-C when I was traveling about with my friend Christy as she went from city to city signing books. It was fall, people were sniffling and sneezing and I sure as heck didn’t want any part of that. Christy was taking Emergen-C to keep her from getting sick and made me try it. It became a regular part of our routine.
Fast forward several months….
One day Bric was complaining of feeling a little under the weather and was stuffed up, sniffling and sneezing. So, I introduced him to Emergen-C. He was skeptical and I kept telling him he just had to try it, that he would feel better and it would keep him from getting as sick as he normally does. He is a firm believer now!
We keep a regular stock of Emergen-C. Everyone in my family uses it, even my Mom now sneaks in to grab some packets when she feels a little under the weather. Then we all realized we just general felt better anytime we were taking Emergen-C and it became a part of our regular routine. So, when Emergen-C contacted me about trying some of their new products that are now on the market I almost pee’d my pants I was so excited.And ohhhhhMyStinkinHeck…who would have thought to use them in recipes and drinks? I always just made it as the package directed and never thought outside the box. I will be from now on though!!
Below you will find a couple of recipes that are fun, fruity and naturally delicious starring Emergen-C Pink and Emergen-C Hearth Health Powerful Antioxidant Formula*. What’s more, with 24 nutrients in each pack, Emergen-C vitamin drink mixes not only help you feel good, they help you do good all year round! For every box of Emergen-C Pink sold, 20 cents is donated to fund breast cancer awareness, research and prevention efforts.
