Zevia {Review & Giveaway}

When the warmer weather comes around I find myself wanting to drink soda more often. It's hard though when you turn the bottle over and see how much sugar one can holds! It crazy it think of how much sugar is put in just one drink. I can't image what that would look like in sugar cubes...I probably wouldn't even drink it. Zevia knows that sugary sodas are a concern and are doing something about it. Zevia makes sodas that contain no sugar or artificial sweetener.

Did you know?

-79 million being classified as pre-diabetic
-25 million Americans have diabetes
-27% of the adult population is obese.
-17% of kids 2-19 years old are obese.

Unhealthy choices have enabled this.


What is Zevia?
Zevia is a soda. It's a soda that's better than the regular ones you 
buy at the store. There is no sugar or artificial sweeteners used in 
their products.

How do they made their soda with no sugar?
Zevia uses stevia. Stevia is a small shrub that is a member of 
Asteraceae family of plants, more commonly referred to as the 
“sunflower family.” 

What makes Zevia stand out:
-zero calories
-all natural ingredients
-zero glycemic index
-no sugar
-no artificial sweeteners
-no high fructose corn syrup

What I thought about the product:
I was very interested in trying Zevia because I hate how much sugar is found in regular soda. They offer 15 different flavors (cola, ginger root beer, giner ale, cream soda, grape, cherry cola, Dr. Zevia, black cherry, caffeine free cola, strawberry, grapefruit citrus, lemon lime twist, orange, mountain Zevia, lime cola), so there is a taste for everyone. The first soda that I had to try was Cherry Cola. It sounded so good and it's a soda flavor I would normally drink. While I liked the fact that this soda was healthier for me; I am not a fan of the stevia taste. It don't know if it is something you just have to get use to but it made the soda have a diet taste. If you like the taste of diet soda then you will love this soda. 

Where you can find Zevia?
Safeway, Whole Foods, Kroger, Target, Amazon, Walgreens, Sprouts, Fred Meyer, Earth Fare...those are just to name a few. Over 16,000 retailers sell this soda!

Now for the giveaway:
