I'll admit it. When he first ordered it, I had a few concerns. After all, the price was a bit steep compared to mainstream soft drinks. I was also worried that it would taste like diet soda. I never liked diet pop and was worried that we would be stuck with several cans of a beverage we didn't like. But my concerns about the taste were unfounded. When I tried Zevia, I loved it.
As mentioned before, it is sweetened with stevia as well as a small amount of the natural sweetener Erythritol and contains no genetically modified ingredients. When we first tried it, Zevia only came in the three original flavors: Cola, Orange, and Lemon Lime Twist. Now you can choose from 15. We've tried most of them, but the following are my favorites (as well as a few of Hubby's):
Zevia Ginger Root Beer: The root beer is one of my all-time favorites. I have always been a root beer lover, and this one is every bit as good as the others. The root beer flavor is very strong in this, just the way I like it.
Zevia Ginger Ale: Here is another one my husband favors, as ginger ale was the soft drink he used to order when we went out (before we gave up sugar). I would prefer more of a ginger taste to it, but it's still a wonderful alternative to mainstream ginger ale brands.
Zevia Grape: Grape soda isn't for everybody, but I've always enjoyed it. Zevia's grape soda actually has a lighter grape flavor that I enjoy more than other brands. It's not quite as overpowering, so if you're not sure about grape soda, give this one a try. You might like it.
Zevia Cream Soda: Cream soda is another pop flavor I've liked for as long as I can remember, and this one is no exception. The vanilla flavor is very strong, so if you love vanilla, you should certainly try this one.
Dr. Zevia: I don't think I need to point out which mainstream beverage this is meant to taste like, but I will say it is a wonderful alternative. This one is a favorite in our household. Cherry is the prominent flavor here, but you'll still notice the spices and fizziness.
Zevia Strawberry: This is a new one, but its light refreshing flavor quickly made it a favorite here. If you like smooth-tasting strawberry-flavored beverages, add this one to your list.
So if you are a pop drinker, give Zevia a chance. With its extensive flavor offerings, they are bound to have something you like. And if you don't drink soda, check out Zevia's recipe page. It can be used for cooking as well.
