Pepsi gives back to the community in many ways. In particular, I’m a big fan of the Pepsi Refresh Grant. (In the month of June, vote for my friend Aprile’s grant application to help build a playground! And I’ll be announcing another Pepsi Refresh Grant application soon.) While I love the Pepsi Refresh Grant, I’m also happy to see Pepsi reaching out to mom bloggers in particular.
I recently had a chance to attend a special Mom’s Night Out Event in Philadelphia at the fabulous Morimoto restaurant, which was sponsored by Aquafina FlavorSplash and MomCentral. The night was all about celebrating motherhood and mom bloggers, and it was so much fun to meet some other Philly Moms.
While I enjoyed one of Morimoto’s wonderful specialty cocktails (Lychee Cosmopolitan = yum!), I was driving. So I was delighted to sample the non-alcoholic beverages provided by Aquafina FlavorSplash. The samples were displayed elegantly in mini shot glasses with fruit in each glass, which made our flavored water look as sophisticated as any cocktail. (I’ll use this idea the next time I entertain!)
We sampled the entire collection of the six FlavorSplash flavored waters, including Grape, Wild Berry, Strawberry Kiwi, Raspberry, Lemon and Peach Mango. All of the waters were zero calories. The grape flavor was a little too strong and sweet for my taste, but I liked all of the other flavors. My personal favorites were lemon and peach mango since I felt these were the lightest and most refreshing.
Now that I’ve had a chance to sample FlavorSplash, I’m much more inclined to buy it in the future. And when I do, I’ll be thinking positive thoughts about a rare Girls’ Night Out made possible by Aquafina.
