So, what's with all the WAT-AAH! buzz, anyway? Besides the catchy and uber cool name, which takes me back to my native New York, with much appreciation for the Brooklyn dialect inflected term for "water". Well, according to the company literature “WAT-AAH! aims to help combat childhood and teen obesity by offering a healthy drink alternative, with attitude, not sugar.”
I was unpleasantly surprised to discover the sugar content on some of the drinks that my family has coveted for so long. SNAPPLE (my personal weakness) has 23 grams of sugar. CAPRI SUN has 23 grams of sugar. LEMONADE has 27 grams of sugar. MONSTER ENERGY drink has 54 grams of sugar. Even VITAMIN WATER has 13 grams of sugar! Change will be good, and is starting--now!! Here is WAT-AAH taking presence--front & center-- over our other "junky" drinks in my fridge.
WAT-AAH! is not just water, it comes in 4 varieties targeting key elements of the healthy body:
WAT-AAH! Bones: the first premium, sugar-free, ultra purified water with calcium to help bone growth
WAT-AAH! Energy: the first premium sugar-free, ultra purified water , with electrolytes and oxygen for increased metabolic function and energy.
WAT-AAH! Brain: the first premium, sugar-free, ultra purified water with added electrolytes to encourage faster absorption, hydration and cooling down.
WAT-AAH! Body: the foundation of the brand with clean and pure spring water, no sodium, no chemicals, and still no sugar.
Why WAT-AAH!? Water is simply the key to true hydration. WAT-AAH! is ultra-pure water containing the right amount of essential minerals to fortify and maintain children's health (www.wat-aah.com). Our mission is to reverse the established behavior and dependency on sweetened drinks among American children, thus reducing the alarmingly high rates of childhood obesity. Ultimately, WAT-AAH! aims to teach kids that healthy bodies can be obtained through healthy hydration!
WAT-AAH! is the first 100% sugar-free, functional beverage brand designed especially for kids. This fall, WAT-AAH! is challenging you and your families to stay away from the unhealthy, sugar-laden beverages and to DRINK MORE WAT-AAH!
Thank you to WAT-AAH! for giving me the opportunity to review this product, and my kids thank you, as well! When the all too familiar UPS man delivered the package from Let Water Be Water LLC, my kids were instantly curious about the the "cool" bottles and wanted to try it immediately. They were attracted to the sleek design of the bottles and the neon colored labels.They initially expected the water to have different flavors. My kids do drink plain water on a regular basis, so I wasn't sure how they'd react to the flavor of enhanced water. The thing is, WAT-AAH! tastes just like pure water with no hint of anything "extra" at all, so the kids really loved it. Kudos for marketing, because the design of the bottles does exactly what the product has intended to do, targeting the kid demographic and motivating them to choose the water over other sugar laden drinks. The verdict in our house? Yummy! Cool! This stuff is great, Mommy! I like saying "WAT-AAH!" Can we get some to bring to school--everyone will be jealous!"
I am proud to say that my family is happy to be participating in the WAT-AAH! Challenge. That's music to this Mom's ears! Here's 3 of my kids enjoying their WAT-AAH! They're begging me to buy more! Yes, I will!
