Zevia Rainbow Case flavor review/giveaway 2/28 ***Closed!!!***






Good news to all the diabetics, the dieters, and pregnant women*. You DO NOT have to give up soda! That's right! Zevia is an all natural soda that has no artificial sweeteners, HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup), or anything bad! Zevia is recommended by Moms everywhere, and a popular favorite among dieters too!



But what is Zevia?

Zevia is soda made with the Stevia Leaf, so it's an all natural sugar, with zero calories. I bought a Stevia plant last year, but my kids picked all the leafs off and ate them. Well, OK, I helped.The plant's leaves itself, do actually taste a little different than the soda. I love that this soda has guilt free sweeteners, because I do worry about the long-term effect that artificial sweeteners have on our body. I enjoy them, on occasion, but try to limit them for health reasons. Zevia is sweetened with a combination of stevia and erythritol. Both are plant based sweeteners that contain no sugar and only a small amount of carbohydrates (7 grams per can). Regular sodas have around 30 grams of sugar and typical diet sodas are sweetened with artificial sweeteners. You can't pick aspartame off of a tree, because it is a chemical made in a lab. If you want to learn more about the Stevia plant, then read all about it here  on Zevia's website. It explains it even further, and how the FDA has approved it.

Nine flavor's of Zevia are caffeine-free! Cola, Dr Zevia & Mountain Zevia are not. Those are the "cola" drinks that do contain caffeine. So the delicious kid's flavors you don't have to worry that they will get "all-jacked-up" on Caffeine, like the kids in Talladega Nights. Too funny. Sorry.

Anyway- 


Zevia sent me their “Rainbow Case” which includes 2 cans of each of the 12 flavors? SRP is $23.96.  But you can buy a six pack of Zevia for around $3.50 to $6 depending on where you buy it at!




Lets go through what we thought of each of the 12 



  • Black Cherry - This one was pretty good! It tastes so fruity and sweet, and was the one Giana loved the most!

  • Caffeine Free Cola - I didn't care for this flavor too much. It tasted a tad bit too sweet for me, and had some strange note/flavor I couldn't put my finger on, but the label said it contained Nutmeg Oil, so it's possible I just don't like that spice? It didn't have too much of an aftertaste, and the kids seemed to like it.

  • Cola - Again, not one of my favorites. Probably my least favorite. Sorry Zevia. I'm sure, you- as a reader understand that people's taste-buds vary greatly and what one dislikes, another might truly like very much!

  • Cream Soda - THIS was Giana's very favorite. I didn't get much more than a sip, and she was sneaky, and got the 2nd can, and drank it too. With the sip I did get, it tasted just like Cream Soda, so if you like Cream Soda, this is spot-on!

  • Dr. Zevia - This was my husbands (and MY!) very favorite! We made Dr Zevia Floats out of the two cans, and I have to say, if I were to buy it, this would be what I would purchase!

  • Ginger Ale - This blend contains actual ginger, so this is perfect for the queasy pregnant woman. Ginger soothes upset tummies!

  • Ginger Root Beer - This wasn't a favorite of mine either. Noah drank one, and Giana drank the other. She kept trying to sneak these into her school lunch. I let her take them two times, but then I stopped because their lunch is 20 minutes long, and she was wasting them, because she spends most of her lunchtime talking. This I know from visiting her during lunch-time.

  • Grape - Devonny drank these with a straw. Well, what she didn't spill. She was barely coming up for air! 

  • Grapefruit Citrus - Noah loves grapefruit. The kids and I do not. He drank both of these, and he did enjoy them. I am biased against grapefruit, period. So you probably won't get a fair opinion of it from me.

  • Lemon Lime Twist - One word: "Tasty!" 

  • Mountain Zevia - Also another favorite of ours. If I were shopping for Zevia, and the Dr Zevia wasn't available. This would be the 2nd favorite and would be what I would buy!

  • Orange - The kids enjoyed these 2 cans immensely!




So if you want to try it for yourself, you can easily go to their site and locate it. As well, there is also a coupon for Canadians, and Americans http://www.zevia.com/savings alike.
