product review-Horizon Organic Milk

(image taken from Horizons' facebook page)

** Thanks to Horizon & Bzz Agent, I was given coupons for this product. One was for a free product and the others were cents off. While I tried the product for free, I am not being paid for my opinion.**

I feel like I talk about lunch boxes ALL the time on here! lol But, it is something I do 5 days a week times 4 lunches a day. So, finding ways to make it more fun, interesting, cheaper, healthier...well it's what I do.

I will tell you right now that not every lunch box I make is healthy. That's the truth.

However, I was very excited to be contacted about trying out Horizon Organic Milk. I am constantly buying juice boxes, water bottles, etc to put in my kids lunch bags. Here is some of the info I got in my info kit...

Four flavors: 2% plain, chocolate, strawberry and vanilla.

Available in a variety of pkg. counts (3, 12, 18 or single serve)

"Each milk box is 8 oz. of organic goodness. That means Horizon Organic milk was produced without antibiotics, added growth hormones, pesticides or cloning."

"No artificial colors or flavors."

"No high fructose corn syrup."

" Excellent source of Vitamins A & D, calcium. There are also 8 grams of protein per serving."

"Organic milk boxes are specifically packaged to block light and air, so they retain nutrition and freshness, even without refrigeration."

I bought 6, three chocolate and three strawberry for the first day of school. I asked my kids later what they thought:

Harmony tried both flavors and gave both 5/5 stars. She said "it was just really good"

Ethan also tried both and gave the chocolate a 4/5 and the strawberry 5/5. When I asked why he voted that way he just shrugged. Gotta love kids! (:

Connor is my most picky. It takes a lot to get a "Connor approved rating". He refused to try the strawberry. He gave the chocolate a 3/5 and said he liked Nesquick better "because it tastes more chocolatey". Although he did like the straw. (:

So there you have it. Do you want to try it for yourself? I am having a quick 24 hour giveaway for an envelope of Horizon coupons, including one for a free 3 pk! We all love free right? Just leave me a comment, and I will randomly draw someone!

Have you tried Horizon milk? Or their other products? What did you think?
