If you are like me, and have been searching for ZERO CALORIE soda that is NOT sweetened with synthetic sweeteners like aspartame, I have just the drink for you! ..I had no idea that there was a soda on the market that was sweetened with Stevia (as well as very small amounts of the natural sweetener Erythritol).
In any event, I was excited when I received Zevia’s sodas delivered to me. I was eager to see if they tasted any good. After all, because it’s simply NOT real sugar, I’m always wary of whether products made with alternative sweeteners will truly have good flavor.
The first thing I noted is that many of the flavors were CLEAR! I guess I just didn’t expect that. For example, the Strawberry, Black Cherry and Orange flavors…I typically am used to sodas being the color of the flavor. So, no pinks, oranges or reds. But that’s okay. It’s not a big deal that they are uncolored. It’s just a matter of getting used to the translucentness. However, a “plus” was that the clear liquid really brought out the “bubbles” created by the carbonation though!
Taste-waise, I was pleasantly surprised and impressed! All 6 of the Zevia sodas I tasted were excellent. Very sweet and yummy! They didn’t have any weird aftertaste, and none of them were too sweet either.
Zevia Cola: Zevia Cola was every bit as good as any of the name brand colas. The color, and carbonation is very comparable, and the Cola has only very slightly different taste from the other big named sodas. – I loved this!
Zevia Lemon Lime Twist: Zevia Lemon Lime Twist tasted wonderful. The perfect blend of lemon and lime that made my taste buds go WOW! The Lemon Lime Twist was not overly sweet, or tangy, it was JUST right.
Zevia Orange: Zevia Orange tasted just as it should, like orange soda! I REALLY enjoyed the Zevia Orange soda, it has become runner-up to my favorite flavor!
Zevia Black Cherry: Zevia Black Cherry had a nice and subtle flavor of cherry, and I did not find the cherry flavor to be overpowering. I like cherry so Zevia Black Cherry was very yummy and it was not too sweet.
Zevia Grape soda is yummy. Zevia Grape soda has a subtle taste of grape, and it is NOT over powering like almost all other brands. I mean that, it is nicely subtle. Zevia Grape pop is also clear, so it doesn’t look purple.
Zevia Ginger Ale: Zevia Ginger Ale was not bad. I only wished there would have been more of a ginger taste to it.
Zevia Cream Soda: Zevia Cream Soda tasted pretty much like the name brand cream soda, just not as sweet, and not with the pink color added. I like Zevia’s cream soda and would defiantly drink it again.
Zevia Ginger Root Beer:
Zevia Ginger Root Beer tastes absolutely AMAZING! I think I’m in love with this drink. Ginger Root Beer tastes better than any name brand root beer I’ve ever tasted, and is the overall WINNER! In fact, I have never really liked Root Beer before, but thanks to Zevia, my mind has now changed. The Zevia Root Beer was the BEST of the bunch
We don't drink a lot of soda but these are really good , even Ray drank them and for him to drink soda it has to be good .
Zevia was loved by people all around the world but none we knew better than our fans in the Pacific Northwest, as it was home. However, cold soda and hot sun seemed like a perfect fit so we up and moved to Los Angeles! Southern California became our new home, but a big part of our heart is still in Seattle.
2011 brought five new flavors and some major growth. Word of smarter soda spread with the launch of five great tasting flavors like Cream Soda, Grapefruit Citrus & Caffeine Free Cola. Jaws dropped when we created the first diet Grape Soda and all natural Mountain Zevia, a mainstream favorite. They are all so delicious, but then again, we might be a little biased.
Our team of soda loving people grew a little more as the world’s passion for Zevia, the smarter soda choice became clear. So what to do when you have more Z team members? Make more flavors of course. We lovingly welcomed Cherry Cola, Strawberry and Lime Cola into the fold in 2012. Our little family of 15 flavors has grown as time has flown by. So what’s next? Stay tuned! One might say we are just getting started . . .
