Beach Treat- Ten Calorie Soda

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #FlavorforLess http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV
Soda is a rare treat around here, my nieces and nephews are rarely allowed to drink it, and I stay away from it, myself. But when we were out shopping for mothers day presents at the Safeway in Prince Frederick, Maryland, we stumbled upon these ten calorie drinks... And well, I couldn't say no to the excitement in these kid's faces.
So, being the cool aunt I am, we grabbed some soda, made some sandwiches, and headed to the beach for an impromptu picnic.
The kids loved it and I didn't even tell them that they were drinking a healthier soda... why crush their dreams?
The soda made for a perfect beach day drink. Cool, refreshing, and delicious. Few things make me more ready for Summer than an ice cold root beer. Plus, they were easy to carry, recyclable, and make it easy to hand out when they're in the can. If you go with the liter version, just pour the soda into reusable glass or plastic bottles. It's just as easy, they have lids, and you're not dealing with disposable cups.
We had such a great time on our little outing. These kids crack me up and I'm pretty sure I gained cool aunt points for allowing them to have soda. Plus, it's pretty much guilt free since I know they weren't drinking all of their calories for the day.

You can pick these products up at any Safeway store near you, be sure to visit the Just For U website for a coupon for a free 2L of any flavor of the TEN calorie products (7UP Ten, Sunkist Ten, A&W Ten, Canada Dry Ten). Offer available from 5/12 - 5/19, while supplies last! Twitter // Facebook

Do these taste better than zero calorie diet sodas?
