Dr. Zevia all Natural Soda

Author: healthnuttxo

* New Flavor Alert * !

You know me- Always on the hunt for the newest flavors, snacks & goodies for me to eat and for you to read about. Which is why I contacted Zevia, the all natural soda sweetened with Stevia, and asked them to try their new flavor, Dr. Zevia. They generously sent me their new flavor to try, and I was super excited. I have already reviewed (and loved!) their other flavors, you can check that out here.

Now, onto the taste.
Honestly- I did remind me A LOT of Dr. Pepper. This was good in my eyes, because growing up, I always liked Dr. Pepper, but it wasn’t a very popular flavor. It was always a treat when I got one, and I especially always remember drinking it while going out to eat with my mom at our local pizza place. So, this soda brought me back some memories too! 🙂

The flavor is a mixture of cola and cherry flavors, with a slight spice aftertaste. It sort of reminded me of clove or nutmeg, one of those spices you make pumpkin pie with. It isn’t very sweet, but more of a “savory” flavor. Like I said- it would go perfect with a piping hot slice of cheesy pizza or Amy’s Non Dairy Pot Pie (we love you, Amy’s!).

This one, by itself, also gets 4 stars. How awesome is a soda with zero calories, zero sugar, no artificial flavors/preservatives and has awesome taste? 😀  Zevia’s Dr. Zevia, Black Cherry, and Root Beer flavors are my favorite of Zevia‘s line. Which ones do you guys like?

Zevia All Natural Soda and..GIVEAWAY!!

ZZEVIA

I feel for you soda lovers. It’s either you go “all natural” and get the stuff loaded with sugar, or you go “sugar free” and you ingest a whole slew of chemicals, dyes and artificial sweetners. What’s a girl (or guy) to do when she craves the fizzy stuff?
Well, my friends, I HAVE THE ANSWER!
Zevia is an ALL NATURAL, ZERO CALORIE, soda! It has no artificial colors, dyes or sweeteners, and has no calories, carbohydrates and little or no sodium. It comes in 6 great flavors, Natural Cola, Natural Orange, Natural Twist, Natural Root Beer, Natural Black Cherry, and Natural Ginger Ale. It’s sweetened naturally, with Stevia, which is a natural herb found in South and Central America, and Erythritol, a natural sugar alcohol found in fruits and veggies. I get true peace of mind drinking this-it’s natural and TASTY!

So how do these babies taste? Welll…

Natural Cola– this one i legit thought was Diet Coke. It tastes pretty much exactly the same, maybe a wee bit more carbonated/fizzy than Diet Coke is (4 stars)

Natural Orange- This one had a mild orangey flavor. Rather than a strong orange flavor, it reminded me of a creamsicle. (4 stars)

 Natural Twist– this one had a “cool lime” flavor. It tasted citrusy, and then had a cooling effect after drinking it. It was very refreshing! (4 stars)

 Natural Root Beer-yummy! Once again, it could totally pass as A&W root beer! It was a little bit sweeter than the root beer I’m used to (or used to drink, rather), but i had my mom try it, and she enjoyed it. She is also Root Beer QUEEN, mind you. 🙂 (4 stars)

 Natural Black Cherry- my favorite flavor by far. It had a deep black cherry flavor. It was so gooooooood! It was very bubbly and fizzy, so I drank half and put it in the fridge for an hour to let some of the caarbonation settle, but I like my soda mildy flat 🙂   (5 stars)

Natural Ginger Ale- tastes just like good ol’ natural ginger ale. It had a crisp taste, and i could taste just a hint of real ginger. I know Ginger Ale is commonly used when you have stomachaches- and after I drank this soda it actually did help my stomachache! (4 stars)

Overall, these ROCK. I’m giving them 4 stars as a whole. I’m going to be upset when I run out. There perfect compliment to a lunch or when you want some flavor and some jazz without all the sugar and the calories!

Each can has 0 calories, 0 fat, 0 carbohydrates, 0 fiber and 0 protein.
