Sneaky Pete's All Natural Oat Beverages: Review and Giveaway!

 


Sneaky Pete's got its name from founder Pete Stilianessis; many years ago, Pete "snuck in" and watched his grandfather brew homemade oat beverages in his workroom. His grandfather gave him the pet name "Sneaky Pete", but also went on to teach him the secret recipe behind his flavorful drinks, and methods of brewing. Pete carried down this 100+ year old family recipe and tweaked it to create Sneaky Pete's All Natural Oat Beverages. Sneaky Pete's is making a name for itself by manufacturing and marketing a product which is both healthy and enjoyable for children and adults. No other beverage can claim to have the fiber content of a bowl of oatmeal!

Sneaky Pete's Oat Beverages all have the following GREAT attributes:
  • 3g Oat Fiber
  • All Natural
  • Only 40 Calories
  • Heart Healthy
  • Low Sugar
  • Low Sodium
  • May Help Lower Cholesterol
  • NO Artificial Colors
  • NO Artificial Flavors
  • Shelf Stable - Portable
  • Vegan Certified
  • Kosher Certified
  • Refreshing Taste
The fiber content in Sneaky Pete's All Natural Oat Beverages equals the content found in one serving of Quaker Oatmeal, but has less calories (40 to 200), less fat (0 to 2.5g), less sodium (15mg to 250mg), and less sugar (5 to 17g)! Their beverages also have more fiber than a serving of Honey Nut Cheerios, less calories (40 to 150), less fat (0 to 1.5g), less sodium (15mg to 160mg), and less sugar (5g to 9g)! Fiber has many health benefits which make Sneaky Pete's All Natural Oat Beverages a great choice; it helps to lower your blood pressure and cholesterol, which helps reduce the risk of stroke or heart attack. Fiber is also great for weight management (it makes you feel more full) and digestive health (helps move food along).

Sneaky Pete's was nice enough to send me one of each of their flavors to review, so that I could share my opinions with you! I was very excited because I had never heard of an oat-based beverage before. I love trying new types of drinks and foods to expand my diet, and it definitely doesn't hurt that Sneaky Pete's All Natural Oat Beverages are full of such healthy and wholesome ingredients.

The Apple flavor was amazing - I shared it with my boyfriend...well, more like we fought over it. It tasted like apple cinnamon, and not the artificial apple taste that you get in some juice blends. It had the flavor of a real, fresh apple. In a way, it was like drinking a bowl of apple cinnamon oatmeal. That sounds weird, but it was delicious. I recommend shaking the drinks well before you open them so that you mix all of the elements properly. The juice is slightly thicker than you might expect, but the texture is not offensive at all. It has the type of consistency and flavor that actually work well for almost any time of day. I could see myself replacing eggs and bacon with a Sneaky Pete's beverage for breakfast, drinking it on its own during the day to refresh, or having one as a "snack". It's versatile -- I feel as though it's a mixture between food and a beverage. I say this because it is so filling. For only 40 calories and such a great ingredient list, I am surprised that the drink made me feel fuller at all, but it did! The Apple was, hands down, my favorite flavor. I would definitely drink this over standard apple juice.

The Raspberry flavor was also really great. The first thing I thought of when I tasted it was not oatmeal, but Now and Laters! I know this is a bizarre item to compare the drink to, but I swear, it has the exact same flavor. I love how sweet this flavor was, without getting to that sickeningly sweet point. I think the natural sugar extract really helps add to the flavor of these beverages. The Raspberry flavor was more like a dessert or a treat to me, even though it is healthy. I would drink this with dinner or for a snack. I also found that the Sneaky Pete's All Natural Oat Beverages are good whether they are warm or cold. Putting them in the fridge gives them more of a refreshing edge on a hot day, but they are great warm as well.

The Grape flavor was my second favorite of Sneaky Pete's. It doesn't taste like your typical grape juice. It is thicker and has a strong sweet flavor at first that turns into "oat" as an aftertaste. This flavor is really addicting. I would use this in place of a granola bar...I mean, how could you go wrong? Even the fat free granola bars usually have over 100 calories. Here you get a similar taste without having to worry about the calories or added junk. My boyfriend really liked the Peach flavor; he said it was great when he came in from skateboarding and needed something to cool him down. My least favorite flavor was the Mango, but that isn't to say I didn't like it..really, all the flavors were good. That's more than I can say for most companies! I was really pleasantly surprised at how unique these drinks tasted and how much I ended up liking them. Everybody knows I am a soda fiend, so to get me on a juice kick is a compliment.

I am going to be purchasing Sneaky Pete's All Natural Oat Beverages in the future, if I get lucky enough to find a store around my new apartment that sells them. I think that they will help me maintain a healthier lifestyle. They are also the perfect size to fit in my bag to bring to class so that I have something to keep me awake and energized throughout the day.

You can purchase Sneaky Pete's All Natural Oat Beverages at many major retailers, such as: Price Chopper, Shop Rite, Weis, Safeway, Meijer, Reasors, Publix, Giant Eagle, etc. They are also available on Amazon!
