Zevia All Natural Zero Calorie Soda Review

What is Zevia?
Zevia is the first all natural soda containing only pure ingredients. Zevia Soda is made without chemically processed artificial sugar substitutes (aspartame, sucralose, saccharin) artificial flavors or artificial colors found in other diet sodas.

My Opinion
We all know that regular (non-diet) soda contributes to packing on the pounds. Researches also found a link between diet soda and metabolic syndrome. You have a 34% higher chance of developing Metabolic Syndrome by drinking just one can of diet soda a day compared to those who drink none. My health is bad enough as it is. Based on these studies, I've quit drinking soda all together. I'm a total soda addict and it's been tough going without.

My Review
Zevia was gracious enough to send me a mixed case of each of their flavors including (All Natural) Dr. Zevia, Root Beer, Twist, Cola, Orange, Black Cherry, and Ginger Ale. When I drank soda, my favorites were always Coke and Dr. Pepper, so of course my first Zevia to try was Dr. Zevia. The flavor was similar to Dr. Pepper. It had a sweet blend of flavors and was very smooth. It's definitely better then diet sodas similar to Dr. Pepper. And although the taste reminded me of a "diet" soda, it is much better than all of the ones I have tried, including Diet Dr. Pepper.

The Cola was my second flavor to try. It smells very similar to regular coke and the taste is very similar as well. I did notice a bit of a citrus taste, which was very enjoyable. I especially like the fact that there is less of a bite with Zevia's Cola. Coke is so acidic, but Zevia's cola doesn't have that acidic taste/ burn to it. Rootbeer and Black Cherry were my husbands favorites, while my son preferred the Orange.

Zevia Soda's are a great replacement for anyone looking for a natural or healthier alternative. I will definitely be stocking up on Dr. Zevia for myself. If the boys are good, I will purchase their favorites as well. I like the fact that Zevia offers an all natural soda. I feel much more comfortable allowing my child to have this versus a high calorie, high sugar processed alternative.

Zevia may be purchased online for $23.99 - case of 24. You may also use their easy store locator to find Zevia in a store near you. If your local store does not currently stock Zevia, print this retailer request form to submit to your local grocery store.
