True Lemon: A Review

Hi guys -- I received a free sample of this in the mail some time ago, and wanted to mention it.

Ever since our trips to Mexico, I love what lemon and lime juice does to food. Sit out in the sun on the patio, stir that tangy mixture of shrimp, citrus, garlic and cilantro on your plate. Scoop up the ceviche on a cracker, look out over the ocean (or in one case, the highway!) and munch. Every time I inhale that tangy, biting aroma, even on a snowy, bleary day like today, I think warmth, sun and sandy beaches.

The problem is longevity. I have a heck of a time getting lemons and limes to hang around. In our dry air, they dry up quickly -- especially the tiny limes whose flavor is soooo Mexican.

That's why [commercial here] True Lemon is helpful. (I like True Lime even better; True Orange is also available.) You've got that bracing citrus flavor in convenient powder form -- and it's not going to end up looking like Night of the Shriveled Dead in your fruit bowl. It's not just handy for salads -- I also like it sprinkled in as a flavor note in soups. Many people also use the handy packets for zipping up their water. Vitamin-wise, it's also going to be a nice jumpstart if you'll feeling fluish or rundown at all.

You can try it for free here at:

Requesting a sample won't cost you a thing -- and True Lemon will donate 10 packets to U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan every time you do.

And think spring. I'm sure it's out there. Somewhere.
