I have been a soda drinker since I was little. I know that the sugar isn't good for me, but I love the taste of a cold soda on a hot day, or with a slice of pizza. It just hits the spot. When I saw the soda company, Zevia, on Facebook I decided to check it out and see what it was all about.
Zevia is a brand of zero calorie soda made with Stevia and Monk Fruit, instead of sugar or artificial sweeteners. It's also kosher, vegan, and gluten-free. There are fifteen flavors to choose from, so there is sure to be a flavor perfect for everyone. I was a little curious to see if it would taste good, or just taste like the awful diet sodas out there. Artificial sweeteners do not mix good with me.
I have tried a few food items in the past made with Stevia and Monk Fruit, and thought they tasted ok, so I decided to give Zevia a go. I chose ginger root beer and Dr. Zevia, since those are two flavors I really enjoy (root beer and Dr. Pepper).
I have to say, after my very first taste I was really skeptical if I would indeed grow to like it. It was like drinking diet without the nasty aftertaste. After drinking a can or two, I really enjoyed the ginger root beer, but I didn't like Dr. Zevia that much. It was ok, but reminded me too much of cough syrup. Would I buy it again? Yes!
You can purchase Zevia in the U.S. and Canada at food stores (Martins, Kroger, Target, Whole Foods, Wegmans, Safeway) for about $5.99 for a 6-pack. It's also available online at Amazon for about $18 and up for a 24-pack. Find out more by visiting their website and printing out a $1 savings coupon while you are there.
