  1. Re the Bubly Bellini Bliss:
    I had no idea this was a new-to-the-market product; just thought it was new to me. (I regularly have Bubly sparkling water, in numerous varieties, here at home.) If I had known it was an entirely new product, I would’ve snapped and submitted a pic, myself! (It was good, BTW. One of the best of their brand’s offerings, IMO.)

    Re the three varieties of the H-E-B PB & [insert flavor] Sticks:
    They look to be shelf-stable products, from the photos…but I’m curious how they’re (1) individually packaged (i.e., in what?), and (2) fine to stay on a shelf with what I can only presume is a simple plastic wrapper.

    1. The peach Bellini has been around for a month or two now but does sound quite good. I have passed by it each time but maybe I will give it a try.

    2. Interesting that you like Bubly. I think it tastes flat. I like some of the flavors, but I can’t get past the flatness of it. I prefer LaCroix, San Pellegrino, Perrier, or Topo Chico. I guess I like more carbonation.

      1. Good to know about the carbonation level on Bubly. I’m always tempted to splurge on it due to the enticing flavours and have always wondered how fizzy it is. I’ll stick with my Sodastream and own syrups/infusions. 🙂

        Have you tried Spindrift? I feel like you might like that.

        1. I don’t like Spindrift either. I find the fruit juice that’s added to be bitter. I’ll stick with LaCroix and splurge on San Pellegrino and Perrier sometimes.

      I thought they were packaged just like the Handi-Snacks products.

      1. Can’t confirm and yeah, that’s what I assume. There’s no reason to think that they wouldn’t be shelf stable.

    4. Trade rJoes has their version with raspberry jelly.They are quite good. The plastic top peels off..they are shelf stable

    1. Trust me, a month after opening the case, the water has lost at least half of its flavor. At least that’s what I found with Bubly’s coconut pineapple. By three months it’s probably tasteless.
