Fizzique: Bubbles of fun & fuel

I’ve never seen a fizzy protein drink until I heard about Fizzique. I was instantly curious if the drink would taste chalky or leave that weird protein aftertaste and I am a sucker for any new healthy products hitting the market. Luckily, I got the chance to try both their flavors–Tropical Limon and Strawberry Watermelon to see for myself.

My boxes arrived the night before I flew off to Australia, but I was dying to try them. So, after a little bit of research, I decided to take a chance. I wrapped a few cans of Fizzique in bubble wrap, wrapped them in sweaters, and squeezed them into my already full suitcase. Praying throughout the flight that my cans didn’t explode, 24 hours later I arrived in Australia and immediately checked–success! A dry suitcase, and ready to drink refreshments. Thank you to all the TripAdvisor forums for the solid advice.

The first day I walked for about 16 miles with a heavy backpack on and was ravenous even after a huge dinner. So I decided that would be the perfect time for a can!

While it was hot outside, this flavor was crisp & refreshing. It had the perfect combination of strawberry and watermelon without tasting artificial. It makes sense because the ingredients are minimal and Fizzique is gluten free, GMO free, fat free, sugar free, soy free, with no artificial preservatives, colors or dyes. With a solid 20 grams of protein, it kept me full and I slept like a baby for the next 12 hours!

I only had a few cans with me in Australia, so I wanted to save them for the beach! I went snorkeling and hiking one day and enjoyed a can on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world with soft, perfectly white silica sand.

I wish I could’ve squeezed more cans into my suitcase! I enjoyed the Tropical Limon flavor, but the Strawberry Watermelon is definitely my favorite. The Tropical Limon flavor reminded me of a less sweet, less artificial version of 7-Up taste-wise, but the Strawberry Watermelon was such a unique combination. When I had to return home (womp womp), I learned that Fizzique even tastes good when not on the beach 😉

At work I was struggling through the afternoon after my last meeting of the day and this high protein snack kept me focused on work, not my rumbling tummy. I occasionally get bored-hungry (or real hungry) around 4PM, but try and keep the snacks on the lighter side so I am still hungry for dinner. This did the trick; light and bubbly, but with the satisfaction of a protein bar. I drank mine out of a wine glass with chopped strawberries to feel a little fancy! It kept me full for hours until I was ready to dig into a big dinner later in the evening around 7PM.

Fizzique is also a great pre- or post-workout beverage/snack. It is light & filling, but doesn’t weigh you down. Plus each can packs 4400mg of BCAAs; BCAAs (Branch-Chain Amino Acids) are shown to help increase muscle endurance and decrease muscle soreness. Feeling less sore after squats? Count me in.
