I wrote recently about not being impressed with the taste of Zevia cream soda and the Zevia folks wrote to ask me to try their other varieties as well. They were kind enough to send me six packs of a multitude of flavors to try for free.
I appreciated their outreach, as I also wrote about here. And I’ve tried all the flavors sent. The verdict — I liked the black cherry the best, I think the flavor there was strong enough to mask the Stevia taste, or at least what I perceive as a Stevia taste in these Stevia-sweetened sodas. The cherry cola also came close, but didn’t quite mask it all.
Other flavors sent me were cola and root beer. So the brand has a full array of flavors from which to choose.
If you’re searching for a soda that isn’t sweetened with high fructose corn syrup, sugar or the various artificial sweeteners in diet sodas that some people are fearful of these days, Zevia is worth a try. It could be a fun addition to your Super Bowl party table. See what guests think, or have blind taste tests to see if they can tell which is which, matching it up against other brands.
Thanks again Zevia folks, for your generosity and your efforts to win me over.
