Be it soda, juice, tea, or even water, everyone has their favorite beverage brand that they love to drink regularly or from time to time. It’s the reason we even have debates about whether or not Dasani is a good water, or which is better: Pepsi vs. Coke?
But I bet you didn’t know that there are so many black-owned brands serving up some super delicious, health-conscious drinks!
So before you solidify your list of favorite drinks, make sure you get your hand on one of these 3 black-owned beverage brands helping us drink our way to wellness.
Founded by Tamala Austin, JIVE Juice is a lifestyle and beverage company dedicated to making juicing for health and wellness fun for the whole family and community.
Like the name says, this health-conscious company has some of the best juice, but that’s not all they offer! They also have weight loss cleanses, smoothies, and infused waters.
The best part? You can order these bad boys online and get them shipped straight to your home, or run to your nearest Whole Foods and H-E-B Supermarkets to stock up on them!
Created by Shenae, a herbalist who has been studying plant medicine for over 6 years, FLYSEST is a tea company inspired by an integral part of black culture: Hip Hop.
From Nip’s Tea to Yella, this company offers up delicious loose leaf blends that embody the flavor of our favorite artists, eras, and moments of Hip Hop culture.
Not only that, but FLYEST is actually incredibly good for you, too. Their herbal blends are good for fighting off common colds, putting some pep back in your step, and strengthening your immune system for general wellness.
Soda isn’t the healthiest beverage, but Michael Robinson II—founder of Bingo Bango Soda Company—found a way to keep it delicious, but also healthy at the same time.
And what’s the secret? Seasonal fruit. Yes, Bingo Bango is an all-natural, fresh fruit soda made with both local and seasonal fruit instead of the artificial flavoring we’re used to.
Plus, not only are they black-owned, but they’re black operated, too! That’s right, Michael does all the bottling, juicing, labeling, deliveries, administrative work, graphic logo and label design, and marketing.
So make sure to really show some love and support!
