Bolero Essential Hydration Review
Bolero is one of the coolest products I have ever come across. I love water, but I really love a drink with a kick once in a while. Knowing that pop is NOT the best choice, that juice has way too many calories and all those powdered additives are packed with chemicals and added sugars I have really been left without any options….until now!!
Bolero Essential Hydration are individual cachets (packets) of SUGAR FREE, all-natural drink flavors! One cachet transforms 1-1.5 liters of water into a fun, sweet and flavorful drink. The trick is in their use of Stevia, the all natural way to sweeten. Bolero is VERY low in calories and carbohydrates. It’s perfect for those on diets, as well as those trying to make Better Choices while staying in better physical condition. Staying in peak physical condition and consuming the relevant nutrients can be very beneficial to your health. When it comes to exercising, it doesn’t have to involve strenuous workouts but can be something relaxing, like yoga. By incorporating surya namaskar, (or sun salutations) into your yoga regime, it can give you the same benefits as some other forms of exercise. Alongside drinking Bolero, this may be the perfect combination to allow you to stay in better physical condition.
There are so many ways to use Bolero:
- Mix with water to stay hydrated
- Mix with club soda or other beverages to get a unique taste
- Teas can be served hot or cold
- Make homemade pop-cycles for kids and adults alike
- Add to eggs or oatmeal
- Add to gelatin for a fat free snack
The Bolero packets are easy to carry in your purse, wallet, diaper bag, gym bag and are perfect for traveling. Each cachet has its own full nutritional value and proper usage information, so be sure to read each packet.
I have been able to try a large selection of flavors available from Bolero and I am thrilled to say there was NOT ONE that I didn’t like! Of course I have my favorites and ones I would totally reach for again.
I was happy to see that they are just as easy to make, drink and store as they claim. I just shook the packet in the bottom of a pitcher. I added water and it naturally dissolved while I was filling it with water. I didn’t even have to mix it or stir it up! Typically there are “floaters” and gross chunks that are stubborn and don’t want to break down when you add water to a drink mix. Not Bolero! I knew that something special was happening when this was the my first experience with Bolero. The drink was smooth, tasty and sweet! I was not expecting such a awesome sweetness from such a healthy drink option. I couldn’t believe it. I thought it must have been the flavor option and that other flavors cannot possibly be as strong and sweet, but they are! Each flavor, one after the other, is just as sweet and tasty. If you add more water to the packet, of course it will be come more watered down, and the less water you add the more powerful it will be. You are the creator of your treat so play around and see what ratio works best for you.
At home I like to keep a pitcher of Bolero available at all times. My kids are constantly asking for juice. I don’t mind giving them Bolero every day now. It’s low in calorie and their teeth are not being coated with added sugars that would be in other juices and powered juice mix options.
When you order Bolero you can choose from 45 different flavor options in 3 different categories. Each box contains 12 cachets of Bolero for only $9.50. I like to mix mine with 6 cups of water per cachet. 12 cachets makes 72 cups. $9.50 divided by 72 cups makes each cup only .13¢! I seriously see no reason why everyone wouldn’t try a few flavors out. But remember, you can add as much or as little water to your Bolero as you like. This is just what I do.
