Zing went my heartstrings for Zevia

Zevia is a company based in Los Angeles, California that produces zero-calorie drinks sweetened with stevia. Stevia is a small shrub that provides the sweetness of sugar without the calories and doesn't raise blood sugar levels.

This progressive group is committed to health with all products being Non-GMO Project certified, vegan, kosher and gluten free. This allows consumers to enjoy their various items guilt free as an alternative to other sodas and teas.

What about the taste? Zevia sent a generous amount of the new, Creamy Root Beer for me to sample. The good news is that it is refreshing and light. Diet drinks sometimes feel like an ingredient is missing, but Zevia sidesteps this by pumping up the cream. The flavor is just right and comparable to many of the mainstream root beers on the market.

Adding it to ice cream or using Zevia as a mixer for a cocktail only adds to the experience. The marketing and style of the product continues to move forward the idea that the company is current with health conscious trends while moving into the future.

Zevia offers quite an array of naturally sweetened beverages including several sodas, as well as organic tea and even kid-size portions of the products. There is a whole rainbow of flavors with the soda selection ranging from traditional cola to orange and grapefruit citrus, among others.

I need to zip out and pick up some of their energy drinks to compare to the competition and there are plenty of options on where to pick up Zevia. Products can be found locally in Chicago at Target, Mariano's and Jewel Osco, to name just a few.
