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!

I can't have the Grapefruit (interferes with my Blood Pressure Medication) so I passed that along to a friend -- and he loved it.

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
black pepper
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

Remember that you can substitute many ingredients with True Citrus products -- you can find Measuring Equivalents on the website.

I never thought of using it in cola! Love that idea! Has this product been out for a while but now has new packaging? If so, I've bought both the Lemon and the Orange before and loved them.

I love the Lemon and the Orange - I haven't tried the other flavors, but they really make me able to drink all the water I need to throughout the day.
