Introducing the UK's first cactus water! Oh yes, True Nopal have just launched, and we are seriously excited to feature their super water in The Baxter Box (yes you lucky people are some of the very first to try it!).
We know what you're thinking – what does cactus water taste like? Delicious. It's absolutely delicious. It's got a refreshingly crisp, fruity taste. Best of all, it has half the calories and sugar of the leading coconut waters (which typically contain 68 calories and 13.5g of sugar per 330ml serving, whereas True Nopal has just 29 calories and 6g of sugar). Pretty amazing for something that survives in one of the hottest places on earth, right?
The nopal cactus doesn't only grow in the Sonoran desert, it produces a fruit called the prickly pear. From it, comes True Nopal cactus water – a 100% natural, vegan and gluten-free water with no artificial flavours and no added sugar. Perfect for supporting an active, healthy lifestyle, which makes it right up our street.
We also love that the Arizona-based company are passionate about doing things that are good for the environment – particularly the North American deserts where True Nopal was born.
They've launched straight into As Nature Intended, Waitrose, Ocado and Boots – and we've got a feeling you'll be seeing a lot more of them.
pssssst. you can get your very own bottle in The Baxter Box here.
