My favorites from the Natural Products Expo West

Standard

Wanted to share my experience from the Natural Products Expo West. I don’t love reading people’s real in depth explanations about things, so I will just let you look through the pictures and read my summary on the caption below the picture. I didn’t take pictures of stuff I didn’t like, or wasn’t impressed with. So this is my version of “the best of”. Some of these products are already on the shelf, others will be out in the next few months. ENJOY!!!

natrual products expo west review - ginger ale

This ginger ale has been out in stores, they have a light version that isnt sweetened with artificial sweeteners and tastes good.

different samples of Bai flavors. Personal fav’s are coconut and mango. 10 calories a bottle, sweetened with monk fruit and stevia. Made with coffee bean as well.

Vega also redid their snack bars. This time you see more of the ingredients in the bars, they are also a bit lighter.
