WIAW #5: Zevia Review and Giveaway!



I received some Zevia to review a while back and, as you can see - Boots was really excited about it. She was licking her lips! Yummy!! I got 6 flavors to try and was super excited about it! I am trying to stay away from as many artificial sugars as I can, but sometimes you just want a carbonated beverage with a little flavor. This is why Zevia is so perfect! And, they even have sodas with caffeine that you can replace your daily diet coke with!

I am sharing this as my What I Ate Wednesday blog link up - thank you so much miss Peas & Crayons!







Here is some info I got from the Zevia website:

Zevia was founded in 2007 in Seattle when a dream to create a Stevia sweetened soda became a reality with 3 great flavors. Since then they have 15 flavors and counting, and are located in So Cal! The founder, Paddy Spence, even said he used to be addicted to real soda with sugar in it!

He says that 27% of adults in the US are obese - and 17% of kids 2-19 years old are obese. 25 million Americans have diabetes, and 79 million are pre-diabetic. He was right when he said that sugar is killing us. This is a great way to enjoy your favorite sweet soda treat, without the guilt and the calories. 
Here are the general nutrition facts for Zevia -


You can buy Zevia at Target.com, Netrition.com here, even Amazon.com here! You can also find it at a lot of your local grocery stores. I wish some around me carried it! I think I have seen it at Sprouts.

The flavors I tried and my review of each are below:

1. Ginger Root Beer: This was pretty good! I don't usually like ginger very much, but I liked the taste of this one. Zevia also recommends drinking these drinks ice cold - and I agree, they taste so good really cold, as this one did.

2. Ginger Ale - I actually do really like Ginger Ale, and would probably buy this one again 1st, just because when I feel a little nauseous I like to drink Diet Ginger Ale - but the sweeteners hurt my stomach! 




















3. Strawberry - I was expecting this to be pink, but it was clear! I put it on ice with some real strawberries and it was delicious!!! A little sweet, but not too much!

4. Cherry Cola - I forgot to take a picture of this one, but it was decent! It actually has caffeine in it too, if you still want a kick from your natural soda!

5. Grapefruit Citrus - This one was different, not my fav, but I didn't dislike any of them. 




















6. Caffeine Free Cola - I preferred the cherry cola over this one - it is a little sweeter than this one! But, if you want cola and no kick - this is perfect!


Other flavors I would love to try are: Lemon Lime Twist, Dr. Zevia, Black Cherry, and Orange! They even have Mountain Zevia if you love the taste of Mountain Dew! Orange and Lemon Lime just sound so good to me!

  3. I'd love to try these as an alternative to soda. I don't drink soda, but I sometimes have a craving. Especially ginger ale.
