Last week, I attended a "Tweet-Up" at Uptown Cafe in Valparaiso, IN - sponsored by Sweetbird. If you aren't familiar with Sweetbird products, it's probably because they have just come to the US. They are syrups, drinks and smoothies made with all natural ingredients, no preservatives, vegan, no added sugar - all the goodies many of us look for in a product.
How generous was the sponsor and Uptown Cafe! We sampled about 9 or 10 different drinks (LOVE the frozen vanilla & chocolate espresso ones - can we get those at Uptown?) along with trying their red pepper hummus and chicken pesto pizza. By the way, if you haven't been to the cafe yet, you must stop in. The menu looks wonderful and the atmosphere is very "city cafe" like. I'll definitely be back!
And, if that wasn't fun enough - Sheena from Sophistishe held a twitter party and was able to give away a $40 gift card to Uptown Cafe...and each of US walked away with a free 6 pack of smoothies.
Would you like to try a Sweetbird smoothie? Guess what? I was given 18 bottles to give away. I don't plan on sending them to anyone, but if you know me in "real life," ask me for one. They come in Orange Mango, Pineapple Passionfruit and Apple Black Currant.
