Zevia Zero Calorie Soda Product Review & Giveaway

As much as I TRY to cut-down … I’m a HUGE Diet Soda fan. I know that it’s better than regular soda, but still not good for you. My favorite is Diet Mountain Dew. I love chugging one of those after good, sweaty workout. But, nothing can be good about a neon green, carbonated beverage. I drink A LOT of water during the day, but I also consume tons of diet soda and coffee, too. I have a drink in hand all day long.

I was intrigued by Zevia (HERE), when I came across it on another blog. Zevia is the first all-natural ZERO CALORIE soda. Zevia contains only pure ingredients and no chemically processed artificial sugar substitutes, flavors or colors found in the other diet sodas I’ve been drinking.

One of Zevia’s all natural ingredients includes Stevia, an herb native to South and Central America used for centuries to sweeten food. Stevia is hundreds of times sweeter than sugar and has no effect on blood sugar levels. Stevia helps with dental hygiene, recent studies found it has antioxidant properties and other health benefits, and it contains no calories.

I already mentioned that there are no calories in Zevia, but there are also zero net carbs, fat and little to no sodium (depending on the flavor you’re drinking).

Speaking of flavors, there are seven yummy Zevia flavors - ZEVIA Natural Cola, ZEVIA Natural Orange, ZEVIA Natural Twist, ZEVIA Natural Root Beer, ZEVIA Natural Black Cherry, and ZEVIA Natural Ginger Ale.

Looking for caffeine? Try the Zevia Natural Cola, which has natural caffeine derived from coffee. The other flavors are caffeine-free.

Ingredients Include: Stevia, Erythritol, natural caramel, natural tartaric acid, citric acid, kola nut extract, natural caffeine, annatto, and ginger root.


At $23.99, a case (24 cans) fo Zevia is quite costly for the mommy on a budget. I’m not sure if I would have splurged on this on my own (actually, I know that I wouldn’t). At $1/can, it may be good enough to help me limit my diet soda intake. However, it has been a nice “treat” and a break from my other diet sodas that I regularly purchase. If it were more affordable, I would definitely be splurging on this regularly.

Zevia tasted a bit different than other diet sodas. Not better, not worse. Just different. Maybe a little "tart". They were definitely still sweet and satisfying. I just didn’t feel like I was filling my body with chemicals with this stuff. I REALLY enjoyed the orange and especially the ginger root beer flavor. I’m not a big ginger ale fan, in general, so I did not enjoy that flavor of Zevia. The cola was yummy and didn’t give me the tummy problems that other leading diet colas give me (bloating, burping, etc.). The black cherry was also a nice sweet treat, when I was trying to avoid turning to the sweet snacks in my pantry. It worked … and with zero calories at that! I wish that there was something similar to my favorite Diet Mountain Dew . But, as I already mentioned ... there can’t be anything good about that neon green carbonated caffeinated beverage!
