INTRODUCING OUR NEW FLAVOR: BLACK CHERRY
We spent a lot of time brainstorming our newest lemonade flavor. Our team wanted a flavor that isn’t only delicious but also one that packs a powerful punch. We knew black cherry was the perfect choice because it is a superfruit and their trees produce beautiful flowers that are pollinated by bees. Other than being fragrant and beautiful, the Black Cherry trees produce amazing fruit that has a lot to offer for health benefits. Native to North America, we love black cherries. Here are three of our favorite benefits they offer:
- Black cherries contain a large number of antioxidants that protect our cells from damage that leads to diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, or cancer. This disease-fighting element is our number one reason for picking this flavor:
- The fruit contains nutrients that calm inflammation, reducing the risk of stiff joints and gout.
- The juice is a great source of potassium, which is important for lowering blood pressure, promoting bone health, and reducing the risk of kidney stones.
In addition, black cherries are an important fruit for a lot of birds and mammals including migrant birds, wild turkeys, and even foxes and bears. Wild animals favor the sweet taste of the cherries, and we love that the tree is such an important part of nature, especially because it attracts bees which pollinate it.
The tart and rich flavor of black cherries pair perfectly with our lemonade. We think it rounds out our flavor offerings nicely as each one of our flavors is unique in its own right. Our new Me & The Bees Black Cherry Lemonade is bold, hitting the taste buds with tartness and then with a hint of sweetness. It’s a delicious way to stay hydrated!
