Product Spotlight: Jordan’s Skinny Cocktail Mixes


Margaritas and many of your other favorite cocktails taste great, but they're full of junk and they make you fat. With all the salt, sugar, and high fructose corn syrup, a margarita weighs in around 500 calories and a pina colada is even worse at about 800 calories.That’s more than a McDonald’s Sausage McMuffin, a Whopper Jr. with cheese from Burger King and almost as much as a an order of large fries from either of the two.

Jordan's Skinny Mixes wants everyone to live in the moment while enjoying their favorite cocktail, without worrying about their figure or unwanted calories. Gone are the days of feeling guilty about about drinking a pina colada by the pool or settling for a tasteless vodka and soda. Made from premium ingredients and sweetened with sucralose (Splenda), Jordan's Skinny Mixes allow you to save about 75% or more of the calories from traditional margaritas, pina coladas, appletinis, and cosmopolitans. Now you can enjoy the fun and flavor of the drinks you love and leave the sugar, carbs and calories behind. Jordan's Skinny Mixes make creating the perfect skinny cocktail fast and easy. Finally, a cocktail that helps you look and feel sexy and confident.

Why Go Bare?

100% lemon juice
100% lime juice

The Bare Story
Natalie Susi’s career started as a high school English teacher in her hometown, Wilmington, Delaware. She then moved to San Diego where she received her Master’s degree in English literature and began teaching at San Diego State University.

While she was teaching, she also started a business on the side selling Italian Ice, an all-natural, low-calorie sorbet, and a product that is incredibly popular on the East Coast in the summer. Natalie’s friends started to ask if she would bring Italian Ice to parties, so they could mix it with liquor, and make delicious low-calorie frozen cocktails. A year later, Natalie was laid off from teaching. She came home one afternoon and drowned her jobless sorrows in an Italian Ice Margarita. And, that was the moment the light bulb went off.

She decided to make a cocktail mixer that was fresh tasting, low in calories, and natural. She wanted to use the same healthy guidelines when creating this mixer as she had with the Italian Ice. She decided to make something that would replace neon colored margaritas made with high fructose corn syrup. No more 700-calorie margaritas that inevitably hurt your stomach and give you hangovers. No more cocktails that ruin all of your hard work at the gym. It was time to make something that was better tasting and better for you. At this time, no one had ever made the attempt to do that in the cocktail industry. And, so Bare Mixers was born.

Bare Mixers was originally called SoCal LowCal. But with the hopes of taking the brand national, Natalie recreated the brand and changed the name to “Bare Mixers” to connote images of being healthy, free from unnatural ingredients, and simple, made of literally just the bare essentials. She sold the product locally to bars, restaurants, and retail stores, and then began to look for partners in order to take the brand to the national level.

When asked how she came to create Bare Mixers, she discusses how it essentially grew out of the unfortunate situation of losing her teaching job, and she recounts the story about how her grandmother used to always advise in Italian,“Quando la vita ti dà limoni, fai una limonata” which translates into the widely used phrase, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”

Natalie says, “In this case, she made Bare.”

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Bumbleroot Baobab Drink Mixes





At Bumbleroot, we’ve been building a product we hope you love. It’s a powdered drink mix featuring a new star - the African Superfruit Baobab.

Baobab is a true superstar amongst superfruits. It has ten times more antioxidants than goji berries or acai! It's a complete plant-based protein - yay for amino acids! It's a great source of dietary fiber. It's a prebiotic - what's that you ask? It's the probiotics cooler cousin. This 'biotic helps grow good bacteria in your gut so that you can better absorb nutrients. And what else? Well, calcium, vitamin C, magnesium, and potassium to start!

We spent months (actually two years!) formulating this drink and we think it's pretty amazing. Baobab is just one of its star ingredients, its supporting actors include coconut water, and depending on the flavor - pineapple, vanilla bean, lemongrass, and blueberry.

The drinks are packed in individual pouches and the pocket-sized packaging means it’s also easy to keep on hand — or in a pocket, purse, backpack, briefcase, diaper bag, sports bag, sports bra, passport cover… You get the idea. This also means you are not contributing to the two million plastic bottles thrown out every five minutes in the United States.

And to top it off, we’ve made sure all our ingredients are certified organic - and gluten and dairy free.


Bumbleroot's Story
In 2010, co-founder Sara Andrews left the corporate world to volunteer with the NGO TechnoServe in Zimbabwe. While there, she came across the baobab fruit which grew in some of the country’s poorest, and most drought-prone areas. Determined to get this superfruit into the hands of consumers in the US and to provide much-needed income to the Baobab harvesters, she worked with chefs to develop Bumbleroot Baobab Drink Mixes.

At Bumbleroot, we've been working to create a company that represents the things we care about: top-notch nutrition, sustainable agriculture, fair prices for farmers, and, of course, scrumptious snacks.

Each day we ask ourselves: Is there a better way to do the things we do? Is there a more nutritious ingredient? Is there packaging available that’s even better for the environment? Are our suppliers being paid fairly?

We’ve been chewing over these questions, and in so doing we’ve realized that there’s a lot of improvements to be made in the way food products are made and food companies are run. We’re not perfect, but we’re working hard to get close. Our goal is to create a company that we can be proud of so that you can, too.

And to further refresh your conscience, Bumbleroot will reinvest a portion of its revenues into food, water, and education projects in its supplying communities so that these amazing people can continue to provide us with excellent products.

Product Spotlight: Fruities No Preservative Cordials For Kids


Fruities is Australia’s only preservative free cordial! Packed full of fun rather than artificial additives, so that Aussie families can taste the freedom of cordial without the worry!

Unlike other kid’s cordials, Australian owned and made Fruities is the only cordial of its kind to contain zero preservatives and absolutely nothing artificial. Finally a cordial that mum can feel good about buying and the kids love drinking! In an age where finding the right option from the supermarket shelf can be confusing and stressful, Fruities makes the choice deliciously refreshing, fun and simple:

• No preservatives
• No artificial sweeteners
• Natural colors
• Natural flavors
• 50% fruit juice

There is always so much focus on avoiding artificial colors and flavors, but artificial preservatives are just as high on mum’s hit list of things to avoid! And that’s why Fruities is a new favorite amongst Aussie parents who say NO to anything artificial!

Fruities is available in four deliciously fruity flavors - Apple Raspberry, Apple Lime, Tropical and Orange – all containing 50% real fruit juice, natural colors and flavors and up to 40% less sugar than key competitor products.

Being a double concentrate, don't forget that a little bit goes a very long way! Every 1L bottle of Fruities makes up to 10L of refreshing ready-to-drink cordial – now that’s a lot of cordial from one small bottle!

We know that mums and dads also try to limit their kid’s sugar intake, so we’ve added the natural sweetener stevia to all our Fruities cordials, enabling a significant reduction in sugar content whilst still maintaining that refreshingly sweet and full flavored taste that kids love. Everyone’s a winner!

And for those of you who are used to storing your cordial in the cupboard….think again! Being preservative free, you’ll need to make sure your Fruities is stored in the fridge after opening, not the cupboard!

So, the next time you’re out looking for a cordial for the kids, make sure you give Fruities a try! We just know you’re going to love it!

Crowd Funding Spotlight: Everly – drink mixes made right

Let’s free ourselves from artificial ingredients with a drink that’s actually healthy, easy on the Earth, and designed for a full life.

  • Launched: Apr 9, 2013
  • Funding ends: May 9, 2013

What we’re doing:

We’re creating a line of natural drink mixes in a super artificial market. It’s called Everly, and it looks like this:

  • Natural Ingredients like sweeteners from plants and colors from fruits. See our ingredients lists.
  • Nutrients from fruit and plant extracts.
  • No calories, because those should come from food, right?
  • Great taste. Before this Kickstarter project, hundreds of people across the country signed up for a free sample packet of Everly in the mail. See what they said.

Why we need you:

We’ve poured our life savings into creating three flavors and preparing a production run, but now we need your help to fund the first full batch of all three flavors.

Why it matters:

Through creating a better beverage we want to contribute to a better world:

  • It begins with better ingredients going into people’s bodies. We think of our packets as little investments in long-term health. Day after day, that’ll add up to a happier, healthier group of humans. That gets us giddy.
  • Every purchase of Everly might mean one less bottle in a landfill. Considering only 2 in 10 bottles are recycled, that’s exciting environmental potential.

We dream of the day when we’re making our packets from plant-based materials, sourcing ingredients from farmers we’ve met, and exploring ways we can use hydration to help others. This is the first, crucial step towards a future of being a good business. Drink mixes made right, making the world right - that’s where we’re going. Help us get there.


Pomegranate Maqui Berry: Tart and refreshing, with antioxidants from pomegranate and maqui berry extracts. This is our all-around flavor, for healthy hydration you can mix up wherever, whenever you want.

Peach Mango: Smooth and succulent, with guarana seed extract. This is our go-getter flavor, for when you’re at the starting line of that 5k, or at the summit of that 14k.


Green Tea Passion Fruit: Cool and calming, with all the goodness of green tea. This is our stay-sharp flavor, for when you’re tackling that midnight deadline or devouring the last chapter of your latest read.

See our nutrition facts here.

Hole Punched Packets:

We'll be able to hole-punch this batch of Everly packets so you can clip them onto your bottle and carry them with you wherever. It’s small details like this that add up to make a world of difference.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We’ve already completed a tiny batch of our pomegranate maqui berry flavor and smoothed out the kinks in our production process. Our ingredients are being sourced and the packaging is ready, but there are always risks to delivering Kickstarter rewards on time:

Ingredients: While we know where to source all of our ingredients, unexpected events like a global shortage of stevia leaf may affect our production timelines.

Hole-punched packets: We haven’t made packets with the hole punch in them yet, so we may experience delays in production as we tweak this part of the process.
