Nick and I got some of these Mamma Chia "vitality beverages" at the Green Festival. They have a nice subtle fruit flavor and the chia seeds add a nifty texture that is makes the beverage more satisfying than drinking regular fruit juice (without being weird). The texture reminds me of what you'd get if you ordered a milk tea with sago instead of the big tapioca pearls. We thought they were really cool, and since we were hitting up the vendor booths at the tail end of the Green Festival, we got a really good deal on them.
We didn't learn until we looked it up later that the chia seeds in these beverages are the very same chia seeds of Chia Pet fame. Apparently they are a great source of Omega-3s and have essential minerals in quantities comparable to flax seeds. Who knew? We recommend the raspberry and blackberry flavors.
