So, first the review, and then the giveaway details.
I honestly LOVE this soda. I do admit to you that I am NOT a soda conoisseur, but in my opinion this bubbly beverage is tasty, fresh and light, and I feel good both while I'm drinking it and afterwards.
The 7 flavors they offer are Cola, Root Beer, Twist, Orange, Ginger Ale, Black Cherry, and Dr. Zevia.
My absolute favorite is the Orange, though the Root Beer and Ginger Ale run very close in the runner up positions. The flavors are distinct but not overpowering or strong....I find the soda very refreshing and thirst quenching. Hubby loves them too and he doesn't typically drink diet soda. There aren't ANY of the flavors that I disliked....I would suggest, tho, that if you are really tied to your equivalent soda flavor, keep an open mind. Zevia might taste a bit different, but the difference is not a bad one. At all.
So, I give Zevia a solid thumbs up! And, I'm willing to bet most of you will like it too.
Soda ~ We Love It And Hate It
I find that us soda drinkers have kind of a love/hate relationship with soda. We hate it because we know it's bad for us, and we love it because, well, why DO we love it? One brand claims their product has "no caffeine, no sugar, no sodium." So, exactly what IS in there?!
Bubbles. We LOVE our bubbles. Maybe a little sweetness. And maybe a little bit of flavor. But, mostly bubbles.
So, if it's bubbles we're really after, lets drink some healthy ones and just make it all about love! Zevia says they have produced the first truly all natural (read: nothing artificial) diet soda. It contains zero calories and zero sugar....and is sweetened with the stevia plant.
Stevia is an extremely safe herb that is not only an excellent sweetener, but it actually lowers blood sugar levels in diabetics by helping to regulate pancreatic function. And unlike sugar which weakens the immune system, stevia has antimicrobial properties and actually helps the body fight off colds and flus.
So, now your soda can keep you healthier! Maybe your company will even supply it to reduce workplace illness. Imagine the possibilities! ;)
The rest of this week my posts will be devoted to the other stuff found in soda, i.e. sugar, artificial sweeteners, etc. and the effect they have on our bodies. And, why Zevia is such a GREAT soda option.
