As I have mentioned before we are making a more conscious effort to becoming more healthy with regular exercise and a healthier diet, so I am always on the look out for good for you snacks and drinks for my family especially my little man! We have been truly blessed with no food allergies but I have noticed that some of the time when “Bug” eats or drinks milk products it kind of tears his stomach up so when I discovered ZenSoy and seen their delicious selections of soy puddings and drinks I knew that I really wanted to give these products a try, so when they agreed to let us do a review and giveaway right here on The Cartoon Lovin’ Mama I was very excited!
About ZenSoy (Taken From Website):
Always organic. Always delicious. Always family.
Family is the reason ZenSoy is always organic! We’ve been committed to providing families with wholesome, good-for-you delicious beverages for 5 generations. And, good-for-you means using only soybeans that are certified organic and grown in the U.S.
A Little History
In 1999, spurred on by the amazing health benefits of soy, we starting producing refrigerated soymilk. And because we wouldn’t serve you anything we wouldn’t serve our own family, we grew only organic soybeans.
What’s the point in offering a healthy product that’s been doused in pesticides? Or been changed through genetic modification? The answer seemed obvious to our family, too! While some soymilks claim to be “natural,” we don’t think there’s anything natural or wholesome about pesticides. And besides, ZenSoy is the soy you enjoy!
Today, ZenSoy Organic Soy Milk is available in 4 delectable, bone-boosting flavors: original (plain), vanilla, chocolate and cappuccino. A year after our soymilk hit shelves, we introduced other delicious snacks that would delight your pickiest eater AND pass the parent trifecta: Is it healthy? Is it nutritious? Is it organic? In 2000, our organic soy puddings became available in creamy chocolate and fruity banana flavors.
Our innovative line generated tremendous interest in the natural foods markets, so we launched two additional flavors: vanilla and a swirl pudding (a mouth-watering combination of our original chocolate flavor mixed with creamy vanilla).
Pandas Against Pesticides
Pandas Against Pesticides is ZenSoy’s campaign to safeguard the environment and our food supply from harmful chemical pesticides. We are pledging 5% of all profits to international wildlife organizations and to promote organic farming.
We have been unwavering in our commitment to the environment since we started ZenSoy in 1999, making delicious, organic, dairy-free products, free of chemical pesticides, petroleum-based fertilizers, and GMOs. All of our soymilk and pudding is made from US grown organic soybeans. Every time you choose ZenSoy, you and your family are taking a stand against threats to our health and environment.
We were sent all four flavors of ZenSoy’s Pudding and all three flavors of ZenSoy’s Soy on the Go Flavors and I have to tell you that the puddings and drinks arrived super fast and very well packaged! I was quite surprised to see actual products arrive at my door since they need to be refrigerated I expected coupons but ZenSoy defiantly came through for us and sent the actual products and they were still very cold when they arrived so that was awesome!
The first products we decided to give a try were the Soy on the Go Flavors that we were sent. It is available in the following flavors: Vanilla, Chocolate and Cappuccino. I was a little hesitant at first about giving one to “Bug” because he isn’t a real huge fan of milk type drinks but when I tried the Cappuccino flavor for myself it was love a first sip!!! No kidding this is a very tasty drink and “Bug” is a huge coffee drinker and wanted to take a drink after he seen me drinking it and needless to say I lost my Cappuccino drink for good! He really enjoyed the Cappuccino flavored Soy on the Go Flavors, so I couldn’t wait to let him try the other two flavors, I figured he would love the Chocolate flavor for sure but I was surprised to see him choose the Vanilla over the Chocolate but he seemed to really enjoy them both so I will be sure to keep these on hand for both him and me!
Next we decided to try the pudding for a afternoon snack the next day and the pudding comes in the following flavors: Vanilla, Chocolate, Banana and Chocolate/Vanilla Swirl! I decided to just let “Bug” choose which flavor he wanted to try and it didn’t surprise me at all that he directly went for the Chocolate/Vanilla Swirl flavor and he devoured it pretty quickly! I myself decide to try the Banana flavor and boy was it ever delish!! It tasted to me just like my grandmothers old fashioned banana pudding she used to make every Thanksgiving!! Since then we have both tried all four flavors and I’m super happy to report they are a huge hit at our house….I personally favor the Banana flavor the best but they are all very yummy and “Bug” prefers the Vanilla flavor the best but he is happy to eat any of the four flavors!
I’m so glad we have discovered ZenSoy and their puddings and on the go drinks, because now it’s no such a fight to get “Bug” to eat and drink snacks that are both yummy and good for him! Since receiving the initial shipment of review samples we have since purchased more of the puddings and the on the go flavors a couple of times and we have decided to keep them on hand for when we need a yummy quick snack or something cold and yummy to drink!!
If you are looking for a delicious and healthy snack or drink for your family and/or you have someone in your family that has to miss out on yummy pudding or milk drinks because of a milk allergy you should really consider checking out ZenSoy products…..they are really yummy…and you can believe that this comes from a very picky two year old!!
