[Sort of] Silent Saturday - extra

I just wanted to quickly share another item that I just love.  Why didn't I just put these items all in one post?  Who knows. But ten years ago I stopped consuming soda & most carbonated beverages  A) none of it holds nutritional value B) after spicy and high temperature food it makes the rear of my mouth sting.  So really what's the point? C) it usually strips the paint off metal objects.  So what is it doing to my body?   When I used to get ill I'd sip the occasional Canada Dry ginger ale but Since I've been on the path to health and wellness through proper nutrition, I don't get 'sick' anymore.

I know I said this would be quick so here's my item for your introduction.  ...nope not getting a dime for this promotion...  Isn't the packaging pretty?

I saw this in the health food store where I usually shop and was attracted to the vintage label along with the word CHAI.  I'm a chai tea stalker in that I must try everybody's chai. So I had to break my 10 year run to give this product a whirl.  I tell you this cola/tonic changed my life.  Yes that is an exaggeration.  I keep it in my frige now, my guests love it, & I've converted one health professional and one die hard coke/pepsi person to this beverage.  I'm not out to convert you.  I'm simply introducing a healthy alternative to you.  Especially you diet soda people.  You all give me a chuckle when you order that item. But I ain't one to judge..

After all it is all about YOU.  If you'd like to know where to purchse this item click here to do the research.  You should be able to find it in any health food market.

Be well!


  1. I am a total Diet Canada Dry Ginger Alc-oholic. I always try to find healthier substitutes but they never do it for me. Thanks for giving me something new to try!!

  2. High Five. I don't drink soda/carbonated beverages either. It is a rare treat for my son. Even beyond the unhealthy additives, the carbonation rots one's teeth. I'm an advocate for healthy shiny teeth!

  3. Hi sweetie,

    I pray you had a blessed Thanksgiving. I too love chai, especially a nice cold chai tea latte, so I am going to see if my local Whole Foods store has this cola in stock, cause I too would like to try an alternative to carbonated sodas. Thanks for sharing! Also, thanks for the heads up on that vintage blog you referenced on my blog. I'll definitely check it out. As always, you provide me with such inspiration and new goodies. Love ya, sis!
