Natural Calorie-Free Soda News

If you've tried stevia soda before and been put off by the bitter taste, you need to try the recently reformulated Zevia Zero Calorie Soda. We'll be honest: We tried Zevia when it first launched and weren't impressed. But the latest formula? It tastes amazing and has no weird aftertaste. Here's the 411…

What's different?

Since we last tried it, the sweetener formulation has changed. The soda is now made with a mix of calorie-free natural sweeteners: stevia, monk fruit, and erythritol. It's also clear (not caramel colored) and GMO-free. These changes have definitely resulted in tastier fizzy beverages!

What are the flavors?

Cola, Caffeine Free Cola, Ginger Root Beer, Ginger Ale, Cream Soda, Grape, Orange, Cherry Cola, Dr. Zevia, Black Cherry, Strawberry, Grapefruit Citrus, Mountain Zevia, Lemon Lime Twist, and Tonic Water.

What’s the HG fave?

Strawberry... Hands down!
