zevia {review and giveaway}

Update: This giveaway is now closed.

Zevia

Ok, you've seen Zevia here before. And not a lot has changed since I first wrote about their stevia-sweetened soda. I don't drink it regularly, but it's a product I love as an occasional treat, and I am so relieved to be able to find sugarfree soda without all the chemicals.

Then, the people at Zevia very generously sent me another little variety pack to try and offered to send five of my readers a voucher for the six-pack of their choice.

Awesome, no?

It was great to try a bunch of flavors again...some I hadn't had before. And for the most part, I love them. (Strawberry is not my style...waaaaayyy too much like liquid candy.) I do tend to water them down with a little plain seltzer, because the stevia flavor is so strong. But as I said before, if you can handle the taste of diet soda, then I would imagine the stevia flavor wouldn't bother you either.

Zevia does recommend keeping the soda as cold as possible and drinking it from the can. I'm not sure I've kept to those rules as strictly as I should (totally guilty of using a glass), so I bet it would also taste even better if I did!

And again, even though I wouldn't drink Zevia on a regular basis, I love it as a special treat now and then. I've been enjoying the latest batch with our special Friday night dinners and a movie. Kind of makes me feel like a big kid. My favorite flavor has to be the ginger root beer. It's the closest thing to regular soda, and I imagine it would make a great root beer float (with coconut ice cream for a dairyfree and low glycemic version!).

If you haven't had it before, it's definitely worth a try! (And you've got a pretty good chance of getting some for free here...)

  2. I'm seconding the Ginger Root Beer. The Grapefruit Cirtus sounds amazing as well! I've seen these at the grocer and have been meaning to try them out. Ace, giveaway, Clair!

  5. GRAAAAAPE! And then cream soda. I love a good grape and cream soda because it reminds me of being a kid drinking A-Treats. Then I get excited because of all the crazy things we did back then.

  10. This is the pop I buy for my rye and gingers, the few times a year I have those. I think I just labelled myself as really Canadian with the use of the words 'pop' and 'rye' lol. Anyway, I would love to try the root beer flavour. Good idea to water it down, I will have to try that next time!

  13. I've been meaning to try Zevia for 100 years but I can never justify going to the store and picking up a pack of soda (probably the only sweet I'm able to resist!) On the other hand, Mike LOVES cola, so this could be a great compromise. I love the idea of the grapefruit flavor! I hope I win I hope I win! :)
