Bombilla™ (or, the brand formerly known as "Bombilla & Gourd Inc") is saving the world from corn-syrupy pesticide-laden big-business beverages one consumer at a time. Always USDA Organic, always functional, and always low- or no-calorie.
Developed by three 24-year-old ex-investment bankers (who point out they had nothing to do with the sub-prime loan mess), the brand premiered with its Maté Tea™ line in 2006, quickly expanding to eight SKUs (including Pomegranate, Blueberry and Acai Berry) and winning BevNet's "Best Non-Carbonated Beverage of 2007". In 2008, it launched the Pure Teas, the first organic and unsweetened teas to go mainstream -- and followed up with "The Superfruits", high antioxidant fruit-based juice beverages in such flavors as Pomegranate Lemonade and Yumberry Limeade.
Healthy sipping and slurping isn't difficult -- always go organic, get your antioxidants from fruits and tea leaves, and keep your sugar LOW. Bombilla™ does it all. When you're done, don't forget to recycle!
Available at Whole Foods Markets, Wild Oats stores, Shaw's, Giant of Pennsylvania, Jewell and FoodTown. Retail $1.69 to $1.89.
