CLOSED Don't Drink ____, Drink WAT-AAH! Review and Giveaway

Pin It Now! THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED WINNER WILL BE POSTED AFTER 10:30 PM EST TUESDAY JUNE 1st 2010

WAT-AAH! wants to help  fight childhood obesity and encourage kids to be healthi-aah! and feel sup-aah!
Please join me in helping to spread the word about their campaign and lets get these kids Healthy!!!




  My family was given the distinct pleasure of reviewing a new Hot off the presses drink this past week and let me tell you, the kids think it is GREAT!!  We are so excited to be able to share this with you and one of my lucky readers will receive a sample of this great product. One lucky winner will receive a mixed box of Wat-aah and some fun goodies to go along with it like tattoos, stickers and maybe some other things it is a box full of surprises.... Details at the end of this Review.
  At first they were like "This is just water, Mom!!" But they love the packaging, bright neon kid friendly colors, and the name Wat-aah!  We are big George Lopez fans in this house and if you know anything about him you can relate, my kids are running around acting like George and instead of some of this phrases they are replacing them with Wat-aah!! It is so funny, they were like we want some more Wat-aah Please!!
They also got cool neon temporary tattoos and stickers to go with the theme and immediately put them to good use. Here is my 10 yr old enjoying his Wat-aah! And my 11 yr old showing off his Wat-aah sticker!!


What I love the most about this drink is that the kids want to drink it and it is just fortified water, but the concept is so much fun and geared to kids so it draws them in. I am glad to see a product that is healthy but still fun. I like that my kids want to drink water.They were so excited to show their friends, I was sorry I did not have enough to go around. But my kids felt so special to be able to tell their friends that they were reviewing it to let the world know if they liked it, it is too funny!!

Here is a press release that was given announcing the drink to the New York Market....

WAT-AAH!, The First Functional Bottled Water For Kids, Fights Soda Companies With New Ad Campaign: 'Don't Drink _____, Drink WAT-AAH!'






Download image NEW YORK, May 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Launching May 3rd, WAT-AAH!, the first functional bottled water for kids without sugar, coloring or calories, takes on soda manufacturers with a bold new advertising campaign: "Don't Drink _____, Drink WAT-AAH!". With "_____" filled in with the words "Soda," "Sugar," "Junk," and "&#%+!," the campaign has a clear and direct message: to make moms and kids aware that there is an alternative to soda and other sugary drinks that tastes great, is legitimately healthy, and genuinely cool.

For the month of May, the "Don't Drink ___" ad campaign will run outdoors in New York City with ubiquitous wild-postings and street stencils carrying the messages. This grassroots campaign will be accompanied by a viral execution showing the WAT-AAH! boy determinedly covering traditional soda icons and images that he encounters on the streets with the wild-posters. These videos and posters will also appear on the company's website, YouTube, Facebook, and other social media sites. Additionally, print ads have been purchased to run in local family and parenting magazines in key markets across the country, such as Philadelphia, Boston, Los Angeles, San Diego, and others.



"The soda bubble is bust. Kids know it, their moms know it, but so do the soda manufacturers," says WAT-AAH!'s CEO and founder Rose Cameron. "That's why they have launched an overwhelming number of so-called 'healthy alternatives,' such as juice based drinks or enhanced water beverages. But the truth is that these 'healthy alternatives' often have as much (and sometimes more) sugar than the sodas they are meant to replace." Cameron continues, "water is the true alternative to soda, but up until now kids have found it boring and preachy. Not anymore. WAT-AAH!, 100% sugar free, ultra pure water, convinces kids that drinking water is far from boring!"



Founded in New York City in 2008 by Rose Cameron and her son, Jack, WAT-AAH! is the first water "cool" enough to convince kids to switch away from soda and other sugar laden beverages that litter the marketplace. With one in three children in the US considered to be overweight or obese, WAT-AAH!'s mission is clear: to reverse the established behavior and dependency on sweetened drinks among American children, thus reducing the alarmingly high rates of childhood obesity.
