Austin's own Buddha's Brew produces kombucha their own way, insisting that high-quality, effective, probiotic-rich kombucha can and should taste good and does not have to be bitter or excessively sharp. A new flavor highlights this stance perfectly: Pineapple Super Greens! Though the combination sounds unusual, and the swamp-water hue of the 'booch itself even more so, Buddha's Brew Pineapple Super Greens absolutely delivers in the flavor department. Nutrient-dense chlorella, spirulina, barley grass, and other greens blend harmoniously into a tropical-sweet backdrop of pineapple, peach and apple juices. Only picked up a week ago, Pineapple Super Greens Kombucha is proving to be a fast favorite, right out of the gate. 16oz, Reg. $3.19

PB2 was dubbed peanut butter’s second generation because it’s unlike any peanut butter you’ve ever experienced. Through a unique process that doesn’t involve the use of any chemicals and doesn’t alter nature’s intended balance found within the peanut, 85% of the fat is removed from premium quality peanuts. Essentially, the oil is squeezed out of roasted peanuts and what remains is powdered peanut butter – all natural with no artificial sweeteners or preservatives. When you mix water or a favorite drink with PB2 you get the same consistency as full-fat peanut butter, with all the roasted peanut flavor, but 85% less fat calories. Our first inclination was to grab a bottle of chocolate milk, shake in a few tablespoons of PB2, and... well, you can imagine how good that was. 6.5oz, Reg. $5.99
