We’ve been looking forward to reviewing one of the Zevia line of sugar free drinks for some time here at glucoholic.com. The Sugar Free Natural Orange flavor we sampled was worth the wait. If you’re looking for something better than your typical diet soda, then order some today. Zevia is focused on providing all natural sugar free drinks that they describe as “The Natural Alternative to Diet Soda”. We think they’ve hit the mark. Zevia is sweetened – I mean supplemented – wth Stevia, the all natural “supplement” that accidentally makes things sweeter without raising your blood sugar, rotting your teeth, or making you rotund. We’ve previously reviewed Stevia right here at glucoholic.com, and think there is no better alternative for those of you who are not fans of Splenda.
We enjoyed this drink immensely. It’s not too heavily carbonated, and it only has the slightest Stevia aftertaste. We’ve always really hated the bitter aftertaste of most diet sodas, but Zevia Natural Orange seems to have just the right mix of Stevia to achieve excellent sweetness with minimal aftertaste. For those of you who don’t seem to mind the aftertaste of Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi, prepare to be impressed; for you, Zevia Natural Orange might taste like pure sugar! The only improvement we would make if we were chemist would be to bump up the orange flavor without effecting the natural quality of this great drink. The orange flavor is more subtle than Sunkist for example, but still present enough to be immediately identified as orange.
Zevia Natural Orange has no sugar, no calories, no carbohydrates, no sodium, no fat, no artificial sweeteners, and no caffeine. Who could ask for better than that? We can’t wait to try the other Zevia flavors!
