Zevia Lemon Lime Twist Soda

Posted by on Friday, 15 July, 2011

Moving on down the Zevia line we tried the Lemon Lime Twist one. Back in the day I used to be a Sprite fan and since I don’t like drinking sodas full of funky junk I never get a change to drink my lemon lime soda. I’m not saying the organic soda, natural sodas or stevia infused sodas are totally healthy buuuut, I do believe that they are a much, MUCH better alternative.

Check out the ingredients in Sprite: carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup, citric acid, natural flavors, sodium citrate and sodium benzoate. But when you have other, … Read the rest

Zevia All Natural Black Cherry Soda

Posted by on Wednesday, 11 May, 2011

Who wants a no sugar, caffeine-free soda that still tastes great? Only in your dreams, right? Wrong! There’s this hot little natural soda floatin’ around called Zevia. It’s sweetened with the Stevia Extract and not real sugar. WTF is stevia? Well, Stevia is a South American herb that has been used as a sweetener by the Guarani Indians of Paraguay for hundreds of years. Give or take a year or two. Supposedly, the leaves of this small, green Stevia rebaudiana plant can be up to 30 times sweeter than sugar. Because this soda is blessed with stevia and not … Read the rest

Blue Sky Natural Cream Soda

Posted by on Monday, 4 April, 2011

Movin’ on down the Blue Sky line I’ve realized that there are some Blue Sky Natural Sodas that I like and some that I don’t. For the most part Blue Sky Organic ones tend are good, just the regular Blue Sky Natural sodas, but the Blue Sky Free sodas or the diet sodas are down right awful, there barely is any flavor — in my opinion. So I’ve been sticking with the Blue Sky Natural sodas and this one I tried was okay. In general I am not a huge fan of Cream Soda, but Blue Sky’s version was pretty … Read the rest

Reed’s All Natural Cherry Ginger Brew Ale

Posted by on Friday, 25 March, 2011

I love Reed’s Original Ginger Brew Ale. I love it so much that I don’t even call it soda, I call it Reed’s. It usually goes like this: a friend asks for a soda and I say I don’t have any soda, but I have a Reed’s.

I like Reed’s Ginger Ale for the fact that it’s not full of garbage. Just natural heavenly good stuff that makes a mean ginger brew. So I decided to try out their Cherry Ginger Brew Ale. And I have to say, it’s only okay. Don’t get me wrong, it is still waaaay … Read the rest

Santa Cruz Organic Root Beer Sparkling Beverage

Posted by on Monday, 1 November, 2010

I know I’ve said my piece on this particular soda before, but I bought it as a single can and was unsure if my can was a dud.  So I tried it again.

Drum roll please…

Much much better! Hooray! The carbonation was just as it should be and the flavor is true to the root beer taste.  The thing I still can’t get over is the clear color to this soda and not doo-doo brown due to fake coloring.  I will overlook the crazy color simply because it’s waaaay better for my body.

Here are the ingredients: Sparkling filtered … Read the rest

Santa Cruz Organic Mango Lemonade Sparkling Soda

Posted by on Tuesday, 12 October, 2010

Have I ever told you that I love Santa Cruz’s products?  No?  Instead of a long speech on all things Santa Cruz, I can do it in two words:  Organic. Environment Friendly.  Okay, so that was three, but still, I kept it pretty short and to the point.  Santa Cruz is a green company that produces organic juices, sodas, peanut butter, fruit sauces, dessert toppings and I’m sure more items in the future.  To check out more about this incredible green machine of a company click here.

Now, onto their Mango Lemonade Sparkling Soda.  I believe this is a … Read the rest

Santa Cruz Organic Lemon Lime Sparkling Soda

Posted by on Wednesday, 19 May, 2010

It’s soda time again,  get excited!  I’ve decided to move down the Santa Cruz line, seeing how they offer more than a few choices to pick from AND my grocery store always has them in stock.  I’ve already tried the organic root beer and I did like it, it just wasn’t my favorite.  Time to see what else Santa Cruz has for me.  Next up was their organic lemon lime soda.  I’m not the biggest fan of lemon/lime stuff but I was curious.  So why was I insisting on trying this next?  Well, the monkey on mu back, one … Read the rest
