This sparkling water is made from real herbs, fruits and flowers. Aimed to make you feel like you are on vacation drinking water from the most luxurious tropical spa, each beautifully-designed 12-ounce can contains zero sugar and calories. Among the great flavors offered by Aura Bora are Cactus Rose, Lavender Cucumber, Peppermint Watermelon, Basil Berry, and Lemongrass Coconut. I am definitely a fan of this brand.

Questlove’s Cheesesteak from Goldbelly

You may know Questlove as the GRAMMY Award-winning drummer, the co-founder of The Roots, and the musical director for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, but he is also a devoted foodie. Not only is he a James Beard Award-nominated and New York Times Best Selling author and host of “Food Salons” with world-renowned chefs, but he is also the brains behind a one-of-a-kind cheesesteak made with plant-based Impossible, which has been served at music venues and sports arenas and ballparks across the country. And now his signature cheesesteak is shipping straight to your door.

Questlove’s Cheesesteak starts with Impossible and sautéed onions cooked on a flat top, doused in a melted real American and Provolone cheese sauce, topped with banana peppers and pickles, and — like all the best Philly cheesesteaks — tucked into a roll from Philly bakery Amoroso’s. Questlove’s Cheesesteak will be donating a portion of the proceeds from all orders through the end of the year to America’s Food Fund, an organization focused on solving the issue of food insecurity.

Mosaic Foods

Founded by friends Matt Davis and Sam McIntire in 2019, Mosaic Foods’ bowl collection has more than doubled this year to a total of 30 bowls as demand for healthy, ready-to-eat foods has grown. The duo aims to raise the bar on the quality and accessibility of healthy frozen foods. Chef Christine Malanga, a veteran of The Food Network and Pret A Manger, joined the Mosaic team this year and has continued developing mouth-watering recipes like Jerk Lentils & Plaintain and Coconut Chickpea Curry.

Mosaic Foods recently introduced a new breakfast line featuring new oat bowls, which joined the Mosaic’s delicious line-up of plant-centric veggie bowls. 6 new savory or sweet options are ready to heat and eat for breakfast, lunch or snacking. With flavors including Golden Milk & Blackberry, Peanut Butter, Banana & Cacao, and Shiitake Ginger, these protein-packed bowls are frozen to preserve freshness and easy to prepare, with no additives required. As prepared in a chef’s kitchen, Mosaic’s meals are immediately frozen to retain their nutrition and can be easily warmed in the microwave in under 5 minutes. Delicious, nutritious and easy.


CLEAN Cause’s Organic Sparkling Yerba Mate Variety Pack includes a mix of all of the brand’s original mouth-watering flavors, including Blackberry, Watermelon Mint, Peach, Raspberry, and Lemon Lime. Each USDA Organic Certified can from CLEAN Cause has only 60 calories and 160 mg natural caffeine, providing a smooth-sailing pick me up. Thus, the concept of “Better Caffeine, Better Refreshment.”

Quality-oriented energy drink aside, CLEAN Cause’s mission is to support individuals in recovery from alcohol and drug addiction by creating a sustainable source of funding for recovery efforts. Its commitment is to give 50 percent of profits to fund its giveback initiative coined “CLEAN Kickstarts.” These sober living scholarships afford individuals coming out of rehab, homelessness, or incarceration, the opportunity to focus on establishing a recovery routine and finding employment.

Generous Coffee

Generous is a movement to multiply good in the world. The people behind the Generous brand believe every human being deserves an opportunity to thrive. That is why it invests 100 percent of its profits from coffee and apparel into life-changing partner organizations that create jobs, feed children, improve education, and empower communities to eliminate poverty. In other words, it is your generosity that makes all of this happen.

Positively-featured by the Today Show, People, Us Weekly and UNICEF alike, Generous Coffee is also renowned for the taste of its coffee itself. In the words of Scott DuBois in a review posted on the Generous website: “My coworker and I have been trying the top 25 coffee roasters in America. Generous Coffee is not on any list, but it is by far the best tasting coffee we’ve had bar none! Better than Blue Bottle, Joe, George Howell, Verve, Cuvée, Intelligencia, Stumptown etc. We just LOVE this coffee, so thank you Generous Coffee for being amazing!”

OMNOM Chocolate

OMNOM is Iceland’s first and only bean-to-bar chocolate maker. Its handmade, small-batch chocolate offerings include single-origin selections from Madagascar, Tanzania, Nicaragua, and Peru. Omnom’s newest superfood creation is the SuperChocoBerryBarleyNibblyNuttylicious flavor, a delicious, nutritious dark chocolate bar made from organic Tanzanian cocoa beans, as sprinkled with cranberries, salted almonds, puffed Icelandic barley and cacao nibs. Omnom chocolates — as featured within the first episode of Zac Efron’s Netflix series Down To Earth — are available on Amazon, while select flavors are also available online through Murray’s Cheese.

Halloween 2020 brought more great additional OMNOM offerings: Black N Burnt Barley, Coffee + Milk and Tanzania; Zac Efron and Darren Olien taste-tested the Coffee + Milk bar within the first episode of their Netflix special, Down To Earth. Meanwhile, OMNOM’s Winter Collection brings 3 limited-edition flavors which you ought to try ASAP: Spiced White + Caramel (this bar features a spiced, malted white chocolate topped with an orange peel and crunchy caramel), Milk + Cookies (featuring the perfect spiced cookie made in collaboration with Brauð og Co. using leftover almonds from production, steel cut oats and a lot of ginger and cinnamon) and Dark Nibs + Raspberry (a luxurious dark chocolate topped with holiday red raspberries for a perfect sweet and tart taste, as paired with a dashing amount of Madagascar cacao nibs sprinkled on top). OMNOM’s streak of excellence continues as of late 2020.

SNACK On-The-Go Tasty Superfood Clusters

SNACK is a new fun, all-natural, Spirulina-based snack cluster. Spirulina — one of the world’s most popular superfood — is notably loaded with various nutrients and antioxidants that are known to be beneficial for the body and brain alike. It was consumed by the ancient Aztecs for centuries and is unmistakable for its “greenish” color, as a result of Phycocyanin, the primary blue-green pigment in Spirulina.

There are 4 different blends of SNACK clusters currently on the market, each containing 5 grams of protein and 140 calories per. These blends are Apricot & Matcha (Energize & Focus), Banana & Cinnamon (Relax & Recover), Apple & Tart Cherry (Relax & Recover), and Blueberry & Matcha (Energize and Focus). All great stuff indeed.
