CLOSED- Winners are Jade, cdziuba and Jamie. All have been notified.
Thank you all who entered. More Giveaways coming soon.
I stopped drinking most soda years ago unless it was home made. Home made being Larry and I buying carbonated water and adding it to juice. Usually grape. Larry is hypoglycemic and he really has to be careful with anything he puts in his mouth.
I did buy the occasional ginger ale for mixing purposes or lemon lime if ginger ale was not available.
And diet soda? Forgetaboudit....I have never met a diet soda I liked or ingredients in one I could agree with.
That is until NOW.
NOW I have met and drank ZEVIA..oh yeah baby...It's sweetened with Stevia. ZEVIA is what all the cool kids are drinking. And hey, I'm cool....right? I'm still cool?....*crickets chirping*
Anyway, Zevia is a "diet" soda I guess, but to me it's just smart thirst quenching.
I mean come on peeps, we all know the high fructose corn syrup ain't cutting it. And sugar comes in many guises....that we are all trying to step back from, especially in drinks as there can be so much in them. Plus I really am one who reads labels, and if I can't pronounce something or I don't know what something is, I do not ingest it. (please do your research on ALL artificial sweeteners before thinking about using them).
The kind generous people over at ZEVIA sent me a great selection of all their flavors. And I like every one of them. I tell you, I do not drink cola any longer. When I was a kid, cola had a lot of flavor and over the years, it just lost any appeal to me, plus all the stuff I mentioned above happened, so I just do not drink it.
So when I opened a ZEVIA Cola I was apprehensive. I poured it into a glass of ice and had it with a plate of nachos. Oh my Gosh, I actually enjoyed it. I yelled out to Larry that I had a cola one and it was good.
I had a "Twist" in a mixed drink and that was really good too. I had a "Dr. Zevia" today and that is my favorite. Larry likes the Root Beer the best.
These guys have hit on the perfect formula.
Zevia has an interesting website. Read about the history of their company, their struggle to get Zevia marketed as "soda", a blog, and locations where you can get your Zevia.
Also here's some great news they received earlier this month : "We received big news. In the natural food channel, ZEVIA® Cola is now the #1 selling beverage item in the United States!
The rankings come from SPINS, which collects and reports actual retail purchase data from natural food stores across the country. Spins® to natural food products is like Nielson® to television, or Arbitron® to radio." (taken from the Zevia Blog.)
All in all, I just like this company. I like their spunk. I like that when they ran into road blocks they stood their ground because they knew they had a great healthy product. I like that they recognize that their customers make them what they are in the retail world. And I like that Larry has a soda he can drink. Thanks Guys, you've done a good thing. Oh and I like that they have a frog as one of their logo's.
And now you can try Zevia and taste what all my kuddos are about.
