Sip, savor and celebrate a return to real life moments

(BPT) - After over a year of patience, hope and perseverance, it's time to get back to real life and real moments that matter, embracing the present and making lasting memories.

Finding real again

There are probably many things you want to do with your favorite people, but it can be difficult to know where to start. First, because human connection is so important, consider planning a small gathering with friends and family. Enjoy real, face-to-face conversations — meet for coffee, plan a picnic, host a barbecue or take a long drive.

It's also time to get back to the activities that you love. From beach days and bonfires to museum visits and concerts — and everything in between — people are craving the real experiences that make life so exciting. Now is the time to celebrate special occasions and honor big and small life moments.

For many people, the pandemic has opened their eyes to what matters most, including their well-being, and they are now focusing on foods and drinks that feature only real, simple, delicious ingredients. From cooking new recipes with whole foods to sipping on tasty refreshments like Reed's REAL Ginger Ale, people are trying to keep it real when they stock their refrigerator.

With 2,000 milligrams of real, fresh organic ginger in every can, Reed's REAL Ginger Ale is the perfect summer drink to sip beneath sunshine as we get back to real life. Whether you're hanging out in the backyard or heading out for an adventure, this ginger ale has a refreshing ginger taste that finishes smooth and is always satisfying. It’s easy to pick up Reed’s at select grocery retailers like ShopRite, Stop & Shop, Big Y, Stew Leonard's, Walmart and CVS to experience REAL ginger goodness.

“Reed’s was founded on the basis of real ingredients and that’s why our entire portfolio of handcrafted beverages features all-natural ingredients and a multitude of real, fresh organic ginger,” shared Lindsay Martin, Vice President of Marketing at Reed’s Inc. “As we’re all looking forward to getting back to real life this summer, we hope our lineup of premium ginger sips inspires consumers to celebrate our return to real life moments with real, delicious drinks that you can feel good about because real is always better.”

Real refreshment from real ingredients

Ginger isn't just deliciously spicy, it's been used as a home remedy to support well-being for centuries. When you're grocery shopping, look for fresh, real ginger in products to ensure you get deep, authentic flavor and none of the artificial extras included in most mainstream ginger ales. Reed's is available in two crisp, classic varieties — Original and Zero Sugar, which is Ketogenic certified — so there's something for everyone. Enjoy by itself or use it to craft cocktails, mocktails or even sauces and marinades for cooking.
