Switching gears a bit… what do you think about the existing grab-and-go drink options out there? Are people ready for healthier alternatives? or will “Big Sugar” continue to dominate the landscape? (I.e. Energy Drinks, high caffeine, high sugar drinks)
Yes! We believe that people are definitely more aware of the important of healthy choices and the negative consequences of common energy boosters.
How does Wize iced tea fit into your current lifestyle? And why do you choose Wize?
We’re always on the move; travelling, dancing, teaching and often making multiple videos in a day which can become very exhausting. Wize helps us stay energized and we choose it because it’s healthier and refreshing.
