    Slender Sticks™

    When it comes to beverages, it’s tough for kids to avoid sugar and other unhealthy additives these days.

Slender Sticks™ Sugar-Free Drink Sticks have 50% or more of nine daily vitamins, as well as 10 super fruits, all in a convenient powder drink stick that you add to a bottle of water. We don’t use any artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners in Slender Sticks™. Instead, we choose to use natural sweeteners such as xylitol and our BetterStevia® for a refreshingly delicious, clean, sweet taste and a considerably fewer calories. Gluten-free Slender Sticks™ are available in Pomegranate Berry, Tropical Punch, Acai Lemonade, Berry Energy Tea and Grape Active flavors.
