Product Review and Giveaway: Baja Bob’s Margarita Mixes

Roni drinking Baja Bob's Margarita Mixes

A few weeks ago you may have noticed that picture on twitter. I had the unfortunate job of taste testing a couple of margaritas for a review on the site. I know. I know. It totally sucked. I mean who wants to spend a night in with their husband sipping margaritas and watching netflix movies.

Ahhhh Who am I kidding. I had blast!

Here’s the deal… Baja Bob shipped me Lime Margarita Mix and Mango Margarita Mix, both were a box of 10 pack singles. I made one of each. Ok, ok, maybe 2 of each. ;~)

Both flavors were good. My only complaint would be the mild sugar free after taste but that’s to be expected… the mixes ARE sugar free. To me it’s a small price to pay for 0 calorie margarita mix. That’s right you heard me.. ZERO CALORIE.

Your average restaurant margarita is at least 300 calories. They are normally gigantic and full of sugar. Using a sugar free mix the only calories in this margarita will come from the tequila, which I believe is about 70 calories an ounce.

Not too Shabby for a cocktail!

Now… due to a mix-up in shipping I received extra boxes of each flavor. I’d love to give them away. Just shoot me a comment below if you are interested and I’ll pick a random winner this Sunday. It’s coming from me so I’ll ship anywhere.

two boxes of Baja Bob's Margarita Mixes to giveaway

Oh! if you are interested in the ingredients click here for original and here for the mango.

I’m off to bed… getting up early and going for a run tomorrow before work!

    I love maragarittas but always tend to not drink them due to how many calories and sugar are in just one. I would love to give a sugar free version a try. Either flavor!

    November 16, 2009

    Hey Roni.. I would love to try the mango margarita mix…or what the heck I’ll try the original..

    If you’re willing to ship them to New Zealand, I’d love some! I love me some cocktails but once I discovered how calorie-heavy they were, I sadly avoided them. I would love to try either flavour of these ones :)

    November 16, 2009

    I have heard of these on other sites as well. I would love to try either of them.

    Laura

    November 17, 2009

    I would love to try these. As someone who is allergic to berries, finding fruit mixes that are not strawberry is a total success.

    Danielle

    Yum!! I’ve been wanting to try these mixes!

    Nancy

    November 17, 2009

    November 17, 2009

    I’d give them a try … though I must admit to not being a big fan of the Baja Bob’s low-carb pina colada mix. (Bought some back when I was doing Atkins.)

    Tatum

    November 17, 2009

    Oh I would love to try these. I have seen an ad about baja bob on dwlz for different mixes by him.

    Janice

    November 17, 2009

    I love margarita’s. Please enter me in the drawing. You’re right, 70 calories for a Margarita is excellent.

    Tammy

    November 17, 2009

    Oh man! I can’t remember when I’ve had a Margarita last! Sugar Free! Cool beans! I’d be delighted win this giveaway. Thanks for the opp. Roni.

    Mandi

    November 17, 2009

    Sign me up! I have heard of these mixes but have not tried them yet…would love to! I used to love a good margarita…but have not had one in years! That is too many calories to use on a drink…no matter how good it is! :) good luck to me! :) Thanks, Roni!

    Sue

    November 17, 2009

    I would love to win some! My BFF loves her some margaritas, and I’d love to bring this to her the next time we are able to get together! (we now live 800 miles apart, so I only get to see her every few months).

    YUM! I love margaritas! At every get-together/celebration/funeral (Greek) my friends and family seem to drink margaritas. I had them at my graduation, grandfather’s funeral, bachelorette party, out with friends, etc. But since I started back on ww (love that baby weight) I’ve had to stay away =( I would love to give either flavor of Bob’s a try.

    Kim

    Not to sound whiny but I could REALLY use some margaritas… full time teacher, part time coach (which is really a full time job in and of itself), full time grad student, mom, wife, and that’s only a portion of my week…. There isn’t enough space to delineate all that I have going on right now with work and school and parenting and wifing! PLEASE???? I could drink a margarita while I am in my PJ’s sometime in the future!!!!! :)

    Kristi

    November 17, 2009

    I’ve actually been really interested in trying these but as far as I know, they don’t carry them in any stores around here. Did you know they also have a mudslide mix? Yum! Anyway, I would love to try them – thanks for the giveaway!

    November 17, 2009

    I would like to add that I have tried every flavor of Bob’s that I could find. I found a Mai Thai and a Strawberry margarita mix as well as what Roni has above. I havent tried the powdered ones, only the bottled. I have to tell everyone that these are AWESOME! I dont think I can do a mixed drink the regular way anymore knowing that Bobs has no calories. Bob’s isn’t available in every state, so if you have seen them snatch them up!

    November 17, 2009

    I avoid fake sugar things most of the time, but cocktails are an exception! A 70(ish) calorie margarita? WOW! I’d try it!

    Stephanie

    November 17, 2009

    Yes, Yes – please let me try – I love these drinks, but have stayed away due to the calories and sugar. I’m thrilled there is an alternative :-)

    Jenny

    November 17, 2009

    Oh, wow. This is like an answer to my (very selfish, very pointed) prayers! Thanks for the opportunity!

    I’d love to be included in the give-away. Margaritas are one of my favorite “bad for you” drinks. It would be great to see what our options are for making these at home. Thanks for the offer!

    Me! Me! Me! My husband always by the tub of Margarita mix and I never join in – those calories just aren’t worth it to me. I’d love to try the Baja Mix.

    I have always wanted to try these but didn’t want to risk the extreme expense if I didn’t like them.

    How awesome! (I know I’m late, but wanted to comment anyway!)

    I am diabetic so this is amazing to be able to enjoy a drink and not have to worry about sugar in the mix, just the alchohol!

    And they’re good?! No way!
