Did you know that cucumbers are actually a fruit? Neither did I. Mind sort of blown… But as it turns out, that is one of the least interesting things about these yummy mother-fruiters. I mean, just thought they were a nice little salad topping, but in reality those babies are the antidote to just about a billion problems. Let’s take a closer look at our little friends, shall we?
Can I get you a glass of water?

Cucumbers are loaded with vitamin K which is great for your bones. One cup has over 20% of the recommended daily intake. Now, look. We don’t expect you to be crushing cup after cup of cucumber. So here’s an idea… why don’t you drink it! Cucumber Wave is 85% soda water and 15% cucumber juice. It’s hydrating, refreshing, and caffeinated (42mg to be exact!). With no sugar added, 15 calories per can and all those health benefits, I’m not sure why we aren’t all drinking Cucumber Wave all day long. So, why don’t we start. Get you a case here. You’re welcome!
