Zevia Review and Giveaway

by Holly on September 14, 2014

zero calorie soda
When you’re a natural health enthusiast it is hard to drink soda, for many reasons. The artificial colors and flavors, the high fructose corn syrup and the sodium benzoate to name a few. Sodium benzoate is commonly used as a preservate in soft drinks (and lots of food and personal care products for that matter) and it is of particular concern. This preservative has been linked to cancer, Parkinson’s disease, neuro-degenerative diseases, and premature aging. It also contributes to ADHD according to the Mayo Clinic.

Alas, there are some times that just call for a soda. For me it’s when I’m watching a movie and eating popcorn- I just need a soda. Or when I’m having pizza- I just need a soda. Many of the alternatives at natural food stores aren’t great options- even though they are made with real cane sugar (not high fructose corn syrup) and often organic, it is still sugar. And a lot of it.

Enter Zevia Zero Calorie Soda. My husband and I discovered it a few years ago and we love it, so I was thrilled when Green Moms Meet gave me the opportunity to review it!

stevia sweetened soda

Zevia is the original naturally sweetened, zero calorie soda with no sugar and no artificial sweeteners. This tasty treat comes in 15 familiar, favorite flavors including Cola, Black Cherry, Cream Soda, Grapefruit Citrus and Ginger Ale. Consider it the smarter soda go-to for you and your family. Zero calories, naturally sweetened and delicious; Zevia is hard to beat.

Just the facts

•Zevia Zero Calorie Soda is sweetened naturally with a unique blend of high purity Stevia (grown right here in the US!) and Monk Fruit.

(Stevia is a sweet little miracle of nature. Originally found in Paraguay this small shrub, native to the Sunflower family, provides 200x the sweetness of sugar with no calories. It is basically a super sweet leaf.)

•Zevia comes in 15 different flavors, including Ginger Root Beer, Strawberry, Cherry Cola, and many more.

•This soda contains no calories, sugar or artificial sweeteners.

•It’s totally Kosher, Vegan, and Gluten-Free

•The retail price for a 6-pack of Zevia ranges from $3.99 to $5.99.

Yes, you can see me sneaking Zevia into movie theaters, along with my organic, trans-fat free popcorn. And in our home on pizza and game night, everyone gets to pick out their favorite flavor to enjoy.

Our family’s favorite flavors are ginger root beer, black cherry,  and cream soda and for those times that call for a caffiene kick, cola.

I have 5 vouchers for a free six pack to giveaway- if you’re interested in trying Zevia, enter to win one!
