Premium Sparkling Juices from Kristian Regale + Giveaway

Kristian Regale makes a premium line of non-alcoholic sparkling juices in a wide variety of delicious flavors. The company got its start in Sweden and is now based out of the mid-western state of Minnesota. These sparkling juices are made with natural beet sugars, geranium botanicals and natural fruit juice. They do not contain any preservatives and are alcohol-free and caffeine-free.

You can find the Kristian Regale beverages internationally and nationally in supermarkets, big-box stores, in specialty gourmet stores and natural food stores.

Sparkling Juice Flavors: Apple, Pear, Peach, Pomegranate-Apple, Black Currant, Lingonberry-Apple, Lite Apple and Lite Pear.

For my review I received the: Peach, Black Currant, Pomegranate-Apple and Apple to try out for all of you. One of the things that is really impressive about these sparkling juices is that each 8 oz. serving is only 100 calories...great for those of us who are watching our weight.

Kristian Regale's Swedish recipe is simple. It's just four parts: fresh fruits, geranium botanicals, a pinch of beet sugar and purified sparkling water. This combination creates a light, crisp, aromatic taste sensation.

For the sparkling apple juice we decided to just drink this one straight from the bottle, chilled of course! It has a very smooth texture and is very flavorful. It definitely tastes like apple juice and what I loved about it was that it wasn't "too" strong of an apple juice. In my opinion, some apple juices that you get in stores border almost onto being an apple cider. This is a very flavorful apple juice.
The sparkling peach juice was one of my favorites! One evening we mixed some peach juice with a little vodka so that we could enjoy a cocktail. A few days later I mixed some of the sparkling peach juice with a little bit of bottled water. I then poured it into my silicone ice pop molds and made some homemade ice pops! The family was sick and they devoured those peach flavored ice pops in a hurry!
I don't buy store bought popsicles due to them being loaded with unhealthy junk and preservatives so I am always making our own ice pops out of flavored juices, pudding pops, fruits, yogurt, etc. A few days later we popped open the bottle of Pomegranate-Apple and I made another batch of ice pops. I simply mix together 1 cup of the sparkling juice with a 1/2 cup of bottled water. Pour into the ice pop molds, freeze for a few hours and then enjoy. Easy as pie! What we love about the Pomegranate-Apple flavor is that you are not a big fan of regular apple juice, this is a wonderful alternative to that! The perfect blend of pomegranates and apples!

The final bottle we received for review is the Sparkling Black Currant Juice which I currently have chilling in my refrigerator. We are taking that bottle with us on Thanksgiving to the nursing home to enjoy with my great aunt at Thanksgiving dinner. I am sure it will be just as delicious as the previous three flavors we have tried.

Overall, we are super pleased with the Kristian Regale sparkling juices! We love them so much that they are now on my grocery list and we will definitely be picking up more! With the holiday season almost here, they are great to have on hand to use for cocktails, making ice pops or just drink them chilled from the bottle.

Giveaway: One lucky winner is going to win 6 bottles of sparkling juices from Kristian Regale. You will receive one bottle of each of the 6 different flavors. Value $35.00.

As much as we love Champagne - we are also big fans of Kristian Regale's Sparkling Juices (maybe it's partly because both my Honey/Hubby's family's and mine are half of Swedish heritage.

I especially like to give a "homemade" gift basket to my (half-Swedish) sister who's married name just happens to be REGALE!

Here's my favorite foursome:
Peach, Lingonberry-Apple, Black Currant and Pear.

(Also like to have some Lite Pear and Lite Apple around !)
