Let me tell you the store of how I came to write this post about LaCroix.
I love LaCroix. Everyone around me knows I love LaCroix because I basically have one on me at all times. I quite often get questions about “the weird thing I’m drinking.” It’s just sparkling water lightly flavored with essential oils from fruits. No sweetener, no artificial stuff.
There are two reasons I drink LaCroix:
- It makes me drink water. I don’t dislike water, I just can’t get myself to drink enough plain water during the day. Even though I keep a water bottle on me, I just…won’t. I should probably be better about that! However, I love LaCroix! The subtle flavor and carbonation taste delicious to me, and they truly are what that keeps me well hydrated throughout the day.
- They helped me give up diet soda and sometimes help me drink less alcohol. I realize that a huge part of what I loved about diet coke was the carbonation, and the LaCroix gives me that same experience. I also sometimes drink them at parties when I don’t want to be drinking but still want to have something fun to sip on. I actually took one to a super bowl party Sunday night!
So one day I’m walking out of a cafe on campus and my friend Ian says, “Do they sponsor you or something?” And I replied “No, but I wish!”
Then I did a silly thing and tweeted about that little conversation at LaCroix. Surprisingly, they replied to me right away and said to shoot them a message! I of course got super excited because how cool is it when a product you actually love and purchase all the time wants to work with you? Ian was also pretty wowed by the whole exchange. Blogging is cool sometimes.
I forgot to email them for a few weeks because life, but finally I sent a message and told them what a big fan I am. They said they are working on an ambassador program (uh, count me in) but that they’d be happy to give me some coupons for free product if I wrote a post about why I love LaCroix so much.
So this is my post about why I love LaCroix so much. Full disclosure.
I’m happy to post about LaCroix because I already talk about it all the time. I got my mom into it (see photo of her fridge above), and I’ve gotten some classmates into it. It helps keep me hydrated and in general just makes me really happy because it tastes so good. I will drink almost any flavor but my current favorite is passionfruit.
Update on my question from a few weeks ago: Though LaCroix is french (it means the cross), the company actually pronounces it “La Croy.”
So go get some LaCroix! If you’ve got a goal to give up soda, drink less alcohol, or even just to drink more water this could be the key. I hope you love it as much as I do.
- How do you stay hydrated?
- Do you like sparkling water? Love LaCroix like me?
