Zevia for the Super Bowl: I’ll go with the black cherry

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.

Zevia sent me four flavors of its Stevia-sweetened soda to try. I liked the black cherry best.

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.

Traditional soda is getting all sorts of bad press these days so die-hard soda drinkers like myself are constantly searching for alternatives. I recently tried one I bought at Whole Foods, Zevia, which is sweetened with Stevia, a sweetener positioning itself as natural.

Zevia had an odd flavor to it,

I bought some Zevia cream soda, hoping it might invoke the carmel-flavored cream sodas of my youth but no such luck., Instead it has what seemed an odd taste to me, especially when it wasn’t super-cold after having sat in a glass for a while.
