True Citrus Review and Giveaway Ends December 1, 2012
I drink a lot of water. And truthfully, sometimes it gets a bit... boring. So I'm always looking for something to perk it up and make it interesting!
I've actually been using True Lemon for a couple of years. I discovered it at a local Japanese Steakhouse. Instead of messy lemon slices (and icky seeds), they served up a few packets of True Lemon with each drink. I was hooked.
About True Citrus:
At True Citrus, our goal is to meet the needs of our customers by creating innovative, high quality food products that offer excellent taste and convenience while complementing a healthy diet and providing value for our customers.
I use True Lemon in water, tea (good, cold Southern Sweet Tea!) and especially in my cola. Yes. Cola. I love it.
Recently, I discovered that True Lemon had branched out into True Citrus. They now offer the following flavours: Lemon (The Original), Lime, Grapefruit, and Orange!
The Lime made my day. I adore lime in my cola -- even more so than lemon! And, of course, the lime is perfect for making margaritas! :)
The Orange is great, too. I like to use orange in baking and drinks. It's brilliant NOT to have to squeeze or zest an orange for simple dishes. It makes for a delicious Orange Bundt Cake!
There are so many ways to use True Citrus products: Baking, Cooking, hot and cold beverages, as a topping for popcorn, nachos, and so much more!
This is one of my favourite True Citrus Recipes:
Cucumbers in True Lemon Cream Sauce
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
6 packets True Lemon
2 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon dried chives
4 cucumbers slices thin and peeled
*Whisk together all ingredients except cucumbers
*Place cucumbers in 9 x 12 dish and pour cream sauce over cucumbers
*Chill for 1 hour or until serving time
