Zevia All Natural Black Cherry Soda

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 sugar that means zero calories for you and zero grams of sugar. The Zevia soda I tried was the Zevia Black Cherry.

The ingredients for the Zevia Black Cherry Natural Soda are: Carbonated H20, Erythritol (Sweetener), Citric Acid, Reb A (Stevia Extract), Natural Flavors, Cherry Essence, Cassia Oil and Clove Leaf Oil.

Now let’s see what’s in a regular run-of-the-mill Black Cherry Soda: Carbonated Water, Natural Flavors, Malic Acid, Aspartame (NUTRASWEET Brand), Sodium Benzoate (Preservative), Sodium Citrate, Caramel Color And Red #40.

Food dye and formaldehyde Aspartame, YUMMY. Zevia Black Cherry Natural Soda not only has better and natural ingredients, it also tastes pretty good too. The carbonation is spot on, the flavor is black cherry and tart-like and it’s quite refreshing. Also you know how sometimes if you drink some sodas it kinda burns your throat? Not burns it exactly but there’s a slight sting…does this make sense?  Anyway, this soda does not do that whatsoever. So where, oh where can you buy Zevia? I know they sell it at Whole Foods and other more healthy type grocery stores. Also check it out on Amazon, you can order it there too. Or just click on the Zevia link towards the beginning of this blog post and they have a “find the soda” page on their website. Easy!

Let’s recap, shall we. Zevia Black Cherry All Natural Soda = No Calories, No Sugar, Caffeine-free, Gluten-Free, Vegan and I can’t think of anything else.

If you like Zevia, be like everyone else and like them on Facebook too!
