Because Broccoli Hugger cares, I did the hard job of scouting out new products for big kids that you need to know about. Now, let me be clear, I had no fun doing it. None. Well, maybe just a little, but that's just because the awesomeness factor goes up exponentially when you combine say a winemaker with an organic mission or a condom maker with a sense of humor and a social conscious. Here are a few of my favs that you must know about.
Drinkwel's Vitamins for those who drink: So, I've been known to dole out the coconut water and pass out milk thistle to friends when we're headed out for the evening. These guys figured out all of the stuff that you might need to take to ensure that you not only feel better, but that you also minimize the damage that you do to your body when indulging. I love the concept, but I cannot totally tell you if they work or not since I went to ExpoWest for work :-) I'll try it next time around!
LaRocca Wines: I've never been good at describing wine beyond the very basics, but I know what I like! These wines are organic, vegan, and have no added sulphites. LaRocca even suggests that you can drink two bottles of red wine and not get a headache from it, although I am not suggesting that you try. I even found an appreciation for their Chardonnay. I'm not usually a fan, but when the winemaker insists. . .
Sir Richard's Condom Company: These guys are all about having fun and doing good too. They make condoms free of animal products and harsh chemicals. PLUS they have their own one-for-one mission. For every condom bought, they donate a condom to a developing country. That made me feel okay about hanging out at their booth and watching the "Vagina Rules."
Belles Organics: These are fun blended organic vodka cocktails. I'm not one to drink fruity concoctions except on rare occasion, but I do know ladies that would LOVE these. Broccoli Hugger likes that they are organic and that they don't have artificial sweeteners - a good thing -but treat them as you would any other juicy mixed cocktail. The CEO is on a mission to bring some Southern charm to ladies who want to avoid consuming junk, but still want to play.
