Zevia All Natural Soda Review and Giveaway


I am a huge soda lover but I’m also trying to be healthier this year so regular full calorie and sugar soda is way out of the question all they are is truly empty calories! So I have switched to diet soda and I know they still aren’t the best for you either since they are full of chemicals, dyes and artificial sweeteners! So what’s our choice to still have the fizzy flavorful taste during the day or late at night! Well I’ve found my new diet drink it’s Zevia an ALL NATURAL, ZERO CALORIE, soda! Zevia has no artificial colors, dyes or sweeteners, and has no calories, carbohydrates and little or no sodium. It comes in 6 great flavors, Natural Cola, Natural Orange, Natural Twist, Natural Root Beer, Natural Black Cherry, and Natural Ginger Ale. It’s sweetened naturally, with Stevia, which is a natural herb found in South and Central America, and Erythritol, a natural sugar alcohol found in fruits and veggies!!! Each can has 0 calories, 0 fat, 0 carbohydrates, 0 fiber and 0 protein.The ingredients in each can only consist of Stevia, Erythritol, Natural Caramel, Natural Tartaric Acid, Citric Acid, Kola Nut Extract,Natural Caffeine,Annatto, and Ginger Root.

Zevia soda is wonderful I have no com plants at all about drinking them other than the fact I’m about to have to reorder because I’m down to my last few! I was super lucky enough to receive a mixed case one of each flavor in a six pack for review! So I’m sure you all want to know what I thought of each of the flavors well here is my thoughts:


Natural Root Beer- This has to be my absolute favorite flavor out of all six that I tried! I think if you didn’t know what brand you were drinking you would think it was a very popular brand of Root Beer such as A&W!


Natural Cola- I tried this one next and boy it’s great it really does replace the need for a Dt. Coke because all the taste is there only much healthier for you!


Natural Ginger Ale- I loved this Ginger Ale it tasted just like the regular old fashioned Ginger Ale and you could definitely taste a hint of ginger in each taste! Very crisp and refreshing I would really recommend this soda if you were sick with a stomach bug to help settle your tummy!



Natural Orange- This had a very nice mild orange flavor not to much and not to little! Very nice for a change.


Natural Twist- Boy this one was good and refreshing it had a nice cooling sensation and a fresh cool lime flavor!


Natural Black Cherry- Very nice black cherry flavor and had a great amount of carbonation! This was the one my husband choose over the others I maybe got one can out of the six pack to drank and he scarfed the rest!

Overall, I have to say these are the best all natural diet soda I have ever tried and I will definitely be keeping some on hand and still be getting my “sweet fix” but this time it’s going to be healthy!
