Michelle Obama Hopes to Transform Food Industry

Recently, Michell Obama announced that she will "jumpstart a race to the top that will transform the entire food industry" with the addition of a company she co-founded, PLEZI Nutrition.

The new company focuses on its initial kids' drink, which has "75% less sugar than average leading 100% fruit juices, no added sugar, plus fiber and nutrients, like potassium, magnesium, and zinc."

According to Plezi Nutrition, their drink is available nationwide at Target and Sprouts and can be found online at Walmart.  And we recently priced the four-box set of drinks at, which retailed for just under $4.00.  Flavors included sour apple, which we ordered (and paid for) to give a non-scientific, non-demographic-focused taste test.  Both the box and bottle from Wamart highlight their less sugar feature and the presence of fiber.

The nutrition label also shares that there is 9 grams of carbohydrates and just 35 calories for the bottle.

We found the light and delightful flavor refreshing and inviting, causing us to conclude that the taste and presentation were excellent.
