Enjoy a healthy and sober(er) October by drinking Reveal (Anytime)
If you are doing a sober(er) October or are someone who just loves healthy, tasty beverages, we’d like to introduce you to Reveal. Reveal was created by Philadelphia-based women and BIPOC founders who were inspired to create a beverage from the avocado pits that usually end up in the trash. The result is a delicious and healthy beverage that tastes like a blend of iced tea and kombucha, with flavors such as Mango Ginger, Grapefruit Lavender, and Rose Mint. Follow Reveal on Instagram to see where they are popping up with free samples next. Once you fall in love, you can get a beverage box delivered to your door or grab a bottle at Riverwards Produce in Fishtown, Iovine Brothers Produce at Reading Terminal Market, and Weaver’s Way in Chestnut Hill. Cheers!
