Turn those gallons of stored water in to a variety of delicious beverages! With these products, you can mix it marvelous!
If you are like me, you have gallons of water stored for your family. But, if your family is like mine, you’ll realize quickly that they won’t want to drink just plain water all of the time. Well, now they won’t have to because there are so many different powdered drink mixes available to help transform your water storage into a myriad of beverage possibilities!
We’ve already spent some time discussing powdered milk, as we realize that milk is such an important part of our diet and essential for many recipes. Milk is a wonderful nutrient rich beverage, and a mainstay of many family’s diets. But, if your family is lactose intolerant, there are also some mixes just for you. These Creamy Select™ Drink Mixes come in three delicious flavors: vanilla, strawberry, and banana. All are dairy based, yet lactose free!
If you are interested in more than milk, you will find that there are several delicious, fortified drink mixes available. Each serving packs a full day of Vitamin C! Imagine mixing up a pitcher of crisp flavored apple drink. Or maybe you’re envisioning a morning with a tall class of orange drink mix? There is also sweet and smooth peach drink mix to tickle those taste buds!
With the cold weather just around the corner, you might be interested in a warm mug of hot chocolate. The Gourmet Creamy Hot Chocolate mix is smooth, delicious and made with real cocoa. There is even Gourmet Mint Truffle Hot Chocolate available which adds a holiday twist to a winter favorite. Aren’t you ready for a mug right now?
Obviously these mixes are a wonderful idea for any time, but there are a few reasons why they are a great idea for food storage. First, it adds variety to your food storage. Like I mentioned before, my family would get pretty sick of drinking just plain water every day! Also, if you need to use your emergency stored water, you might find it to taste a little flat or stale. Mix it up in a Mixer Pitcher with one of these delicious powders and your family will be more than content with the results! Also, you might need to treat your water with purification tablets to insure it’s purity during an emergency. These may require some extra flavor to mask the aftertaste. Last of all, these mixes also add extra calories and nutrients to your family’s diet. So don’t hesitate to add a few of these items to your food storage pantry and enjoy mixing it marvelous!
