Spring means sports season in our family. Jake plays travel baseball and Kofi plays travel soccer. If you live in the Midwest like I do, you may not be convinced that it’s spring with snow lingering on the ground. But alas, we are practicing and getting ready for games and tournaments.
My boys were excited when I told them that I was receiving BODYARMOR Sports Drinks to try out and review. They love sports drinks but know that they are reserved for their long tournament days, hot summer games and long practices. I am also not a fan of artificial stuff that is in most sports drinks, but BODYARMOR Sports Drinks have coconut water and NOTHING ARTIFICIAL!!!
We received 6 out of the 7 flavors to try. Jake’s first pick was Orange-Mango. He thought it was refreshing (see how he is becoming a great reviewer already!) and he liked that it was sweet but not too sweet. BODYARMOR Sports Drink uses cane sugar, which works great for some of our family members that can’t handle artificial sweeteners.
Jake’s second choice was Tropical Punch and once again he liked the coconut, pineapple, cherry and orange flavors. He had a long practice session and BODYARMOR kept him going. The drink has electrolytes and vitamins, which young athletes need, but it is low in sodium which makes BODYARMOR a better choices over other sports drinks on the market.
Next, it was Kofi’s turn. He is an active kid and participates in an active sport. It may not be hot now, but before his season ends in June, he is going to need something other than water to stay hydrated. Kofi doesn’t like sweet flavors and will take only a sip of another brand sports drink, but he really liked coconut water based BODYARMOR.
I wanted to take Kofi’s picture right after he was done trying out his flavor. He quickly gave it a thumbs up. My boys would make great models!
Overall, the BODYARMOR sports drinks are a great fit for our active family. We like their natural approach to making this drink and considering the needs of young athletes. They have chosen better ingredients than other brands and the flavors are fun combinations.
We can’t wait to get more from our local Giant Eagle stores. BODYARMOR is currently offering a coupon on the facebook page, follow the link to get your coupon to try it out!
