“Nature’s Answer To Diet Soda”™
Zero zero calories, zero carbohydrates, and zero sugar, made with no artificial sweetners, colors, or flavors, are what make this all natural diet soda the first of its kind! By using Stevia and Erythritol, an all-natural sweetner extracted from fruits and vegetables in the fermentation process, it manages to rank a zero on the glycemic index charts. It is certified kosher and is gluten and dairy free.
It comes in six classic flavors: Root Beer, Cola, Ginger Ale, Black Cherry, Twist, and Orange.
Thanks to my friend, Margaret from Zevia, I got to try all of the flavors to review them and share with you all!!
Let’s start off with my favorite flavor:
Zevia Root Beer was definitely a winner. It tasted just like the genuine article. Not too sweet, with a hint of aged vanilla taste. I wouldn’t have even been able to tell it was diet, to be honest! I really liked this one.
Now, for my least favorite.
Zevia Orange was tolerable, but not favored. One of my bloggie buds hit the nail on the head when she said it reminded her of a liquid version of orange Tic Tacs. It seemed overly sweet to me, but it wasn’t horrible.
Zevia Black Cherry was pretty yummy. Dessert like, and sweet, it reminded me of Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper, which I am a fan of. It’s nice to know that while you’re drinking it, you’re putting nothing artificial into your body!
Zevia Cola is next on the list. Did it taste like Diet Coke/Pepsi? No. Not really. I wasn’t a huge fan of this flavor. The carbonation seemed to overwhelm the taste of this one and I had a weird after taste in my mouth. It wasn’t bad going down, but the Cola taste was subtle. Maybe a little bit watered down tasting? Wasn’t bad, but nothing to rave about.
The last two flavors, Ginger Ale and Twist, I liked equally as well. Oddly enough, I’m typically not a drinker of either type of soda, but these Zevia versions were tasty!
Thanks again, Margaret!! Hey guess what else, guys?! She even hooked us up with a GIVEAWAY for one grand prize winner of a FULL mixed case and two runners up for 6-pack mixed cases! Isn’t she awesome?!
