“Hi I came across a bottle of this wonderful Chia last week in oamaru at simply foods and loved it – I have been using dry chia made up after soaking it in water everyday for the last 3 weeks and find it very beneficial. I have also put some runners I know in dunedin on to it and they love it.”

R.K. (Dunedin)

“You guys are the top selling cold drink at our cafe now so we are so stoaked to have Chia in our fridge! x”

Cafe (Wellington)

“I have just learnt about chia drinks through Bikram Yoga on tory st, this is my new favourite drink! I learnt about chia seeds from a young age. Its a main ingredient for one of my favourite iced shakes originated from india which gujuratis call falooda. Google falooda, should come up as a rose syrup flavoured based shake with chia seeds and vermicelli. YUM!

Im so pleased to see and hear its in New Zealand, and I hope everyone in NZ gets into it.

Thanks so much for making chia drinks, i love it! I will be telling all my friends and family to go and try and get them hooked.”

K.S. (Wellington)

“It is not often that I feel the need to give feedback but in the case of Chia I do.  I just wanted to let you know that I was in the Freemans Bay New World store yesterday and your mother was there doing tastings.   She was well informed and the taste of your products was devine.  I purchased 6 straight away and will continue to be a regular customer.   I have let a number of friends know and they will all be trying it and I would say will also become regular customers like myself.

Thank you for producing a great tasting, natural and nutrient rich product.”

S.J. (Auckland)

“Hi there, I just want to compliment you on your new drink created in our own little Nelson.  I tasted all three flavours in the Green Grocer last week.  They are good!  I can vouch for feeling really sustained and energized by it, as I eat only two meals (raw vegetarian) a day, and found it the most delicious, refreshing midday boost I’ve ever tasted!  The blackcurrant is my favourite.  Out of this world!”
