Another update to my Airborne vs. Emergen-C review of last month. Shopping at PCC today I found that they don’t sell Airborne, but do sell Emergen-C. Strange? Apparently Airborne isn’t “natural” enough for PCC. An employee pointed me to a substitute for Airborne called “Wellness Fizz”, made by Source Naturals in Santa Cruz.
Pros for Wellness Fizz:
- Nice peachy-watermelony taste, almost like a light bottled tea drink
- The Vitamin A comes in the form of beta carotene, which supposedly shields you from the Vitamin A overdose complaint.
- Takes forever to dissolve in cold water
- Not much “pop” or “fizz” in the drink, if you’re looking for that
Overall: I might substitute this every now and then for Airborne, but it won’t be a regular replacement.
