Bullock's Buzz: True Lemon There’s Nothing Bitter About This!

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

True Lemon There’s Nothing Bitter About This!

 A Tasteful Review and Giveaway!!


   True Lemon not only stands for true taste, but true convenience as wellThese all-natural, delicious-tasting True Lemon products can be used for everything from flavoring water or other beverages to cooking and baking and seasoning.  They come in convenient pre-measured packs which makes storage and carrying some with you a cinch.  Don’t be fooled by the name though, lemon is not the only flavor they make! There is also True Lime, True Orange and True Grapefruit.  Each of these products are made from the real thing, 100% all-natural fruit, no artificial flavoring or additives and no preservatives! 
   Each flavor fruit is taken fresh from the grove, cold-pressed and crystallized to capture the flavor at the peak of its freshness.  Each product literally contains nothing but the fruit from which it came and, depending on the product, a bit of Stevia and/or organic cane juice for a bit of sweetness.  The result is a wonderfully fresh, true citrus taste with little or no calories, no fat and completely gluten-free. Their products are divided into 2 categories, For Cooking, Baking & Beverages and For Your Water. True Citrus was generous enough to send me a box full of their wonderful products including some from each category and of each flavor.

My Opinion
   Having used these products both in beverages and food cooking and baking, I can honestly say, I love them!  Not only are they all-natural, but they are extremely easy to use and easy to store!  You don’t have to worry about keeping anything refrigerated after opening, nor worry about it going bad after just a few days like fresh fruit tends to do.  Plus, they all taste great!  Even when you use the products in cooking and baking, it tastes just like your are using fresh-squeezed juice!  I find that I like using True Lemon better than the bottled lemon juices you find at the store.  I also like how it is pre-measured in easy to use packets, and you can easily look on the back of the box to see how many packets to use in order to equal a certain amount.  I definitely recommend all of these products to anyone who enjoys the taste of fresh citrus as flavoring. 
   I have included one of my favorite simple recipes in which I used True Lemon products below.  Keep in mind, you can use the products in any recipe that calls for fresh citrus juice, plus you can find many more delicious recipes on the True Lemon website under the Recipes tab!  And be sure to check out True Lemon on both Facebook and Twitter for more great recipes, ideas for use, coupons and other information!

Great review. I love lemon and lime flavor so these sound great to me. My husband on the other hand hates citrus flavoring so it would not be good for him. I would use these to flavor my own dishes though.
