smilingrid: iconic (review and giveaway!)

iconic (review and giveaway!)

Like many Americans, I’m a big fan of grab-and-go breakfast! No, I don’t mean fast-food- I already lack enough of my dietary requirements by not eating meat, regular fast food would probably just knock me down irreparably. I love grabbing a yogurt to eat from the passenger seat when car-pooling or throwing together a smoothie to hold in one hand while driving with the other. While I really do like my breakfast smoothies, making them is not time efficient when I have one of those #ohcrapoverslept or #ididNOTwakeuplikethis mornings. When those disasters hit, it makes me really happy to know that there is ICONIC in this beautiful world!

First, can we just talk about their packaging and blogger-service? I love how cute and colorful they made every aspect of their box plus polka dots will always win me over.

What really blew me away, though, was their treatment of me as a blogger! In the HCBN, there are always stories (and screenshots) floating around regarding really horrible brand pitches and treatment- as if, just because we’ve chosen to write for our own blogs, our time and effort is less valuable than, well, anyone else they would contact. Rude.

BUT! That wasn’t the case with ICONIC! Even though I received this opportunity through Tomoson (a third party), they still wrapped it in tissue paper and wrote me a note! Pay attention brands, this is how you treat your bloggers- compensation (here, in the form of product to review and giveaway) and a little courtesy go a loooong way!

I received both their vanilla and chocolate protein drinks (back to me not eating meat- the 20 grams of protein in these make them PERFECT for meh). They only have 3 grams of sugar and a mere 130 calories! The ICONIC team worked closely with nutritionists, so their drinks are legitimately packed with natural ingredients and goodness.

Most importantly?! They taste awesome! If they only attached little plastic straws, I’d fully be transported back to days of packed lunches and field trips! In a great way.

Personally, I liked the chocolate better, as it wasn’t quite as sweet as the vanilla… which is not to say I didn’t love the vanilla! I just drank it while holding coffee in my other hand (I was not driving at this time, in case anyone was worried) #doublefisting

While I drink mine for breakfast, you can also enjoy ICONIC as a snack or any other way you can think of!
