I've partnered with Wegmans to bring you this blog post. As always, thank you for supporting Carrots 'N' Cake!
As you guys might remember, I am a long-time fan of Wegmans. They've made their way to Massachusetts with 6 locations, and I seriously love to visit. There's a location about 25 minutes away, so we'll pop in from time-to-time to do our family’s grocery shopping, especially if we're in the area.
In recent months, I've heard more and more about the Natick Wegmans location and just how incredible it is. A number of people have told me how much I would love it, so when Wegmans reached out about trying their Organic Kombucha, I knew it was the perfect excuse to see what the Natick location was all about.
Verdict: The Natick store was everything that I expected and more: Amazing, massive, and truly one-stop shopping! Check out everything it has to offer!
Mal and Quinn wanted to come along for my Wegmans adventure, so we drove out mid-morning to do our grocery shopping for the week. When we arrived, Quinn was all business with the cart!
Wegmans Organic Kombucha was, of course, on the top of our shopping list. I already love kombucha - obviously, for the taste and bubbles, but also for its gut health properties - so I was really excited to try the Wegmans brand.
Gut health is such a hot topic nowadays and definitely one that I pay attention to - given my past struggles with ulcerative colitis.
So, what is gut health exactly? According to the winter issue of Wegmans Menu magazine, gut health is simply supporting the health of your digestive tract, its digestion, and the quality and diversity of its "good bugs," which seem to support a happy gut. And, of course, the health of your gut can very significantly impact other aspects over your overall health and wellness, including protecting the immune system, preventing chronic inflammation, and even boosting your mood.

Wegmans Organic Kombucha is fermented tea with added probiotic. It's craft-brewed, minimally processed, and unpasteurized to maintain health benefits. Each variety includes a bright (not artificial) fruit flavor with a touch of bubbles, and I love how it tastes. Of course, the health benefits are important, but I simply love the taste. In fact, a bottle of Wegmans Organic Kombucha has become my favorite afternoon pick-me-up lately! 🙂
Wegmans Organic Kombucha is sold in individual 12-ounce bottles as well as in a 6-count Family Pack, and it comes in 5 delicious flavors: Raspberry Lemon Ginger, Ginger Honey Lemon, Cranberry Peach, Mango Turmeric, and Pineapple Habanero Cayenne. Obviously, I stocked up! 🙂
In addition to the Organic Kombucha, we also picked up a case of Wegmans Food You Feel Good About Lemon Sparkling Water to make kombucha spritzers at home. Ooooh, yes, and they're the perfect afternoon pick-me-up as well as a healthier alternative to my usual glass of wine in the evening. (You may have seen me rocking them on Instagram Stories recently.) Wegmans recommends mixing 60% Wegmans Raspberry Lemon Ginger Kombucha with 40% Lemon Sparkling Water, and it's so delicious. Be sure to give it a try - and be sure to keep a look out for Organic Kombucha at your local Wegmans!
We spent well over an hour cruising the store and checking out everything it had to offer before deciding to wrap it up and eat some lunch. We could easily have spent much more time shopping, but we were all starving,
Thankfully, this location features The Burger Bar, a casual restaurant that specializes in burgers, sandwiches, and salads, so we decided to grab lunch there. (I actually ended up getting a big salad from the salad/hot bars.)
Quinn said he wanted a burger and fries, so that's exactly what we ordered him - and, guys, he ATE it. It was incredible - our child ate meat!! Wegmans is quite the magical place!
P.S. As I was writing this blog post, I actually got such a craving for kombucha, I grabbed a bottle of the Wegmans Mango Turmeric. Delish!
