Zevia All Natural Soda and..GIVEAWAY!!

ZZEVIA

I feel for you soda lovers. It’s either you go “all natural” and get the stuff loaded with sugar, or you go “sugar free” and you ingest a whole slew of chemicals, dyes and artificial sweetners. What’s a girl (or guy) to do when she craves the fizzy stuff?
Well, my friends, I HAVE THE ANSWER!
Zevia is an ALL NATURAL, ZERO CALORIE, soda! It has no artificial colors, dyes or sweeteners, and has no calories, carbohydrates and little or no sodium. It comes in 6 great flavors, Natural Cola, Natural Orange, Natural Twist, Natural Root Beer, Natural Black Cherry, and Natural Ginger Ale. It’s sweetened naturally, with Stevia, which is a natural herb found in South and Central America, and Erythritol, a natural sugar alcohol found in fruits and veggies. I get true peace of mind drinking this-it’s natural and TASTY!

So how do these babies taste? Welll…

Natural Cola– this one i legit thought was Diet Coke. It tastes pretty much exactly the same, maybe a wee bit more carbonated/fizzy than Diet Coke is (4 stars)

Natural Orange- This one had a mild orangey flavor. Rather than a strong orange flavor, it reminded me of a creamsicle. (4 stars)

 Natural Twist– this one had a “cool lime” flavor. It tasted citrusy, and then had a cooling effect after drinking it. It was very refreshing! (4 stars)

 Natural Root Beer-yummy! Once again, it could totally pass as A&W root beer! It was a little bit sweeter than the root beer I’m used to (or used to drink, rather), but i had my mom try it, and she enjoyed it. She is also Root Beer QUEEN, mind you. 🙂 (4 stars)

 Natural Black Cherry- my favorite flavor by far. It had a deep black cherry flavor. It was so gooooooood! It was very bubbly and fizzy, so I drank half and put it in the fridge for an hour to let some of the caarbonation settle, but I like my soda mildy flat 🙂   (5 stars)

Natural Ginger Ale- tastes just like good ol’ natural ginger ale. It had a crisp taste, and i could taste just a hint of real ginger. I know Ginger Ale is commonly used when you have stomachaches- and after I drank this soda it actually did help my stomachache! (4 stars)

Overall, these ROCK. I’m giving them 4 stars as a whole. I’m going to be upset when I run out. There perfect compliment to a lunch or when you want some flavor and some jazz without all the sugar and the calories!

O.N.E. Drinks

ONE

Time for my very first BEVERAGE review! Woop! I was lucky enough to receive a few samples from O.N.E. which stands for One Natural Experience. O.N.E. has a variety of drinks that are all natural and bursting with health benefits. They all come in cute little boxes, and mine has little straws attached to them as well. I love it when companies do that-too cute, and conveinent!! I got to try the Coconut water with a splash of pineapple, Coffee Fruit Drink with strawberry, and the Water of Life varieties.
Let’s begin and start sipping away!
Coconut Water with Splash of Pineapple- first of all Coconut water is EXCELLENT for your body. According to the O.N.E. website, coconut water  is “excellent for replacing lost electrolytes from exercise or illness, is an all-natural sports/energy drink, may help promote smoother, more hydrated skin, is rich in potassium” and much more. So i was super excited to try this. And boy, was it REFRESHING. It has just the slightest hint of pineapple to jazz up the coconut water. It sort of had a thicker consistency than regular water, but didn’t really taste like coconut. Normally the coconut you would expect is like from coconut scented sprays or coconut cookies, but it was a much more mellow flavor with the pineapple to jazz it up. Refreshing!

Coffee Berry Fruit Drink with Strawberry-Coffee fruit eh? You thought there was only a bean, didn’t you? This drink has even more antioxidants than coffee alone, because  a lot of the nutrition is lost when the bean is processed. It’s also rich in phenolic acids, which may help fight the buildup of radicals and protect against “oxidative stress”. And… OMG THIS IS SO GOOD! I loved it! It was sweet, but not too sweet, and super yummy. The strawberry flavor really shone through. I think it would be really good with some ice, like a slushy! 🙂

Water a Gift of Life- this water is from a specific Natural Spring, and is totally purified and clean. To be honest, it tasted like bottle water to me. That’s a good thing though, very fresh, clean and crisp.

I reccommend these waters maybe after a workout or a little too much partying Saturday night (you know who you are 😉  ) for some rejuvenation and some kickin health benefits! 4 stars!

Coconut Water with Pineapple- 1 carton is 79 calories, 0 grams of fat, 19 carbohydrates,  .3 grams of fiber and .8 grams of protein.
natural coconut water, natural pineapple juice, cane juice, Vitamin C, natural fruit flavor
Coffee Fruit with Strawberry (110z)- is 107 calories, .5 grams of fat, 26 carbohydrates,  1 gram of fiber, .4 grams of protein and 950% vitamin c. Woah baby-that kicks orange juice outta the park!
Acerola Puree, Red Grape Juice, Whole Coffee Fruit, Natural Flavors, Water Citric Acid, Pitanga Puree, Bean Puree
A Gift of Life- 0 cals, 0 fat, 0 carbs, 0 fiber, 0 protein. Just good ol water!
