Sponsored Review and Giveaway: Emergen-C Vitamin C Dietary Supplement!

Dear Readers:

    I am a member of the Smiley360 Blogger Circle, and was sent a box of Emergen-C to facilitate this review. The opinions within are my own. (and enter below to win a box for you!!)

  I have been a big fan of Emergen-C for a long, long time. This delicious fizzy drink helped me out during my trying late nights studying and rehearsing during college. I drank it when I moved to NYC to pursue acting and singing. And, I stock my pantry with it now to be the healthiest Mama I can be. I love all of the cool flavors, the ingredients such as zinc, vitamin c and d and manganese. and how easy it is up cut open a pack, dump it into some nice cold water, and drink my fruity vitamin drink. I love the boost!!!

   And the flavors. There are soooo many cool flavors from Orange to Cranberry Pomegranate and everything in between. I love the Raspberry especially! I would love to try the Mangosteen too, I havent seen it yet but when I find it I am sooo there. What is your favorite flavor?? There are a bunch to choose from, check out the site and see for yourself.

Curious about what makes up a packet of Emergen-C??  Here is the info about the Raspberry,my fave packet:
