What is bobby?

bobby is a range of better-for-you soft drinks that boast full flavour (think Coke, Fanta, Solo & Raspberry Lemonade), low calories, low sugar with added prebiotics for a happy gut! 

Why drink bobby?

If you're sick of having health benefits jammed down your throat, tired of new drinks that look amazing but the flavour lets you down time and time again than this is why bobby exists. 

Yeah we're a healthy functional soft drink, but flavour is first and foremost and our overall goal is to contribute to more people enjoying better beverages with benefits - that could be a bobby cola or a competitors, we're not phased.

Is bobby all natural, gluten free, non-GMO (genetically modified) & vegan?

You betcha we are and we always will be!

Does bobby need to be kept in the fridge?

Personal choice this one, you can keep bobby under your bed, in your cupboard, at grandmas or in your fridge.. it doesn't bother us and it doesn't change the flavour. Bobby is an ambient product with a 12 month shelf life. 

We highly recommend you serve chilled for that ice cooool taste 🥤😎 

Why does bobby contain small amounts of sugar?

All our drinks are 97-98% sugar free & 32-40 calories per can (not per 100ml like a lot of industry jokers put on their label) we purposefully chose to use tiny amounts of sugar because full flavour is at the core of what we do. We believe everything in moderation and there are enough businesses fighting the war on sugar.. so we're happy to sit this one out. 

Ever tried those 0 sugar, 0 cal drinks, you sip it and flavour hit is the equivalent of someone in the next room whispering softly into your ear "well this taste like crap"... yeah well thats exactly what we didn't want bobby to be!

I've heard of Stevia, but what the hell is Erythritol?

Yes stevia is quite well known, its usually "1 matcha soy decaf latte with a stevia, thanks". Stevia for those of you playing along at home is a plant derived natural sweetener from the plant species stevia rebaudiana and is native to Brazil & Paraguay, we use stevia as it is completely natural and low in calories. 

Erythritol like stevia is a completely natural sweetener derived from fruit & vegetables. Because we aren't afraid to add a little sugar we don't have to use much of either sweetener which is perfect in making bobby taste so damn good. 

What are prebiotics?

Prebiotics are a form of dietary fibre that feed the “friendly” bacteria in your gut. This allows your gut bacteria to produce nutrients for your colon cells, which leads to a healthier digestive system. 

Our vision is for mass acceptance and consumption of our soft drinks, the prebiotics are an easter egg and we want people to finish a can, have a squiz at the label and think "how the hell did they conceal prebiotics better than mum hiding carrot and broccoli in the spag bol!".

What prebiotic do you use?

Our drinks contain Sunfiber® prebiotic - feel free to have a ponder https://sunfiber.com/frequently-asked-questions/

 What is the difference between guar gum and sunfiber (guar fiber)?

Guar gum is a water soluble carbohydrate derived from the guar plant seed. It is used throughout the food industry for its superior thickening, gelling, emulsifying, and stabilizing properties as a result of its high viscosity.

While guar gum and Sunfiber (guar fiber) come from the same plant, Sunfiber has a low viscosity and is used to add fiber to various foods and dietary supplements.
