During lockdown I was sent a whole bundle of Footy’s treats to try out. I was so excited, as the lockdown diet has been real and I know that I have been piling on the weight. Footy’s is sugar-free, banting-friendly and has all natural ingredients. How good could it really taste right?
I immediately opened one of the sachets and added it to my water bottle filled with water. YUM! Guys, these flavours are unreal and don’t leave an artificial aftertaste in your mouth. I was hooked. I dilute it slightly more than their recommended dosage, but I have always added more water to my cooldrinks.
And then I decided to give the Grape flavour a go with some sparkling water, and it tasted just like Fanta Grape, but not as sweet. I asked husband to try some with his eyes closed and he was super impressed as he had no idea I had made this at home.
I was also excited to discover their free recipe book available online and we have tried the chocolate and strawberry cheesecake, as well as the frozen yoghurt. The different flavours are Grape, Naartjie, Strawberry, Lemon & Lime, Passion Fruit, and Raspberry – my favourites are the Passion Fruit and Grape, with husband obsessed over the Strawberry one.
Guys, these fantastic products are available in ready-mixed juices, as well as a variety pack (individual sachets of the different flavours allow you to discover your favourite without having to buy a large container), as well as 170g and 450g jars.
I have shared mine with my co-workers, as well as with one of the guys who works on our property and is a diabetic – he said he absolutely loves it and has already gone to buy his second jar!
These are available from their online store, Dischem, Food Lover’s Market, Spar, Fresh Stop, Pick n Pay, as well as a few independent distributors. They are a healthier alternative to so many cooldrinks currently available, and I love the versatility of them – with the colder weather I have been adding it to boiling water and enjoying being warmed from the inside too. You could even add it to milk for a fruity milkshake, or some plan yoghurt to flavour it as you please.
The Footy’s Mission and Vision
Our father founded Footy’s in his search for a healthier and wealthier future for our family and a better footprint for humanity.
We believe that true change is a daily decision where your actions will determine the legacy of your footprint. Making healthier lifestyle choices, by following healthier eating habits with proper nutrition. At the same time, we feel that we can still be able to enjoy the sweet part of life, especially for our kids. Bearing in mind that children live by example, the range was also developed to include mom and dad, which makes it ideal for both young and old.
The Footy’s Future Food range products are the brainchild of Dr. Tersia Muller, founder of Wellness Made Simple For Kids. Combining forces with her husband, Christiaan Muller and sister-in-law, Annchen Bester (Chef and new product development consultant), the Footy’s Future Food range saw the light in October 2015.
All our products are made with natural colourants, no artificial sweeteners, no sugar and no preservatives, which makes it diabetic friendly. Our powder cooldrink are ADHD friendly, tooth-friendly and high in vitamin C and contains no artificial ingredients. This makes our products ideal for slimmers, the health conscious and individuals prone to allergies.
