I recently received a Vitapod machine to review and the timing could not have been more perfect! I have a daughter going off to college for the first time and we’ve been crazy busy shopping for her new life in a dorm room. As a Mom, it’s extremely hard to send your child across the country and my primary concern is her health and wellbeing. Clean tasty water is a huge concern as the dorms my daughter will be residing in only has tap water, and filtered water stations are only available in some classroom and public buildings across campus – not exactly very convenient to dorm life!
Upon receiving the Vitapod and playing with it for a week, I almost became giddy – not only does the Vitapod machine filter water better than market leaders, but it also has the option to cool water for optimal hydration, allowing the body to absorb water more efficiently.
The Vitapod machine is also a pod system! They currently make 11 different Vitapod flavors that are made of 100% natural ingredients with different options. The pods contain some caffeine which is ideal for a busy (and tired) college student. Caffeine content: The Iced Tea+ (60mg), Sports+ (100mg), and Energy+ (200mg) pods
As the Vitapod dispenses the beverage, it mixes up the drink powder and then self-rinses the mixing compartment so it’s clean for each use thereafter. (See video)
So not only can my daughter get chilled, tasty water in her dorm room (hello, her roommate is going to LOVE her!), but she will also use the pods as tasty supplements during the day to improve her nutrition and water experience.
Truthfully, when I saw the pods, I cringed because of eco-waste, but then I pulled out this cool plastic pre-labeled bag. They offer FREE recycling of the pods and each pod uses 90% less plastic than a single-use plastic bottle. Big sigh of relief! I love that they are being responsible in recycling efforts an the easy to mail bag is a no-brainer!
Now the only part hard part in packing is me letting this sexy water machine go. I want one too now! One for her, one for me.
