Mamma Chia Review & Giveaway (US)

disclosure produt review

My husband and I have been using chia seeds in our smoothies and certain recipes for a while now. We like the health benefits they offer, and they’re pretty easy to incorporate into any recipe. I like that using these seeds has become popular lately and I was thrilled to be able to review some goodies from a pioneer in the chia business – Mamma Chia.

We received six flavors of Mamma Chia’s Chia Squeeze packs that are perfect for lunchboxes, to throw in your gym bag for a boost, or to stash in your desk at work for an afternoon snack. The flavors of these packs are fantastic – Apple Cinnamon, Blackberry Bliss, Green Magic, Mango Coconut, Strawberry Banana, and Wild Raspberry. I like the rich flavors, and the texture of these snacks are really great. If you haven’t had one before, I’ll tell you the same thing I told my sons – it tastes like your eating soft strawberry seeds (something my five and three year old could both understand!). My youngest son loves eating from squeeze pouches, so these were a hit for him. My husband and I both loved these as well. We keep them in the fridge and enjoy them chilled. These pouches retail for $1.79 each and pack in a lot of nutrition, including 1200mg of Omega-3s, 4g of fiber, and 2g of complete protein. And if you’re watching your waistline, these are a great low calorie snack at only 70-80 calories each.

We also received a variety of organic Vitality Beverages in Cherry Lime, Strawberry Lemonade, Blackberry Hibiscus and Pineapple Coconut. My favorite is the Cherry Lime – so very refreshing. These drinks feature 2500mg of Omega-3s, 6g of fiber, 4g of complete protein, 95mg of calcium, and are only 120 calories per bottle. These are wonderful for that 3pm slump that seems to hit every day! These bottles retail for $2.99 and, along with the Chia Squeeze packs, can be found at retailers such as Target, Costco, Whole Foods, and grocery stores throughout the US.
