Zevia is the least bad choice, imo. However, I find that I just need to cut as much sweet flavor out as humanly possible. No sweeteners of any kind. That said, I haven't been 100% successful, I still make home made ice cream with sweetener and use it in my coffee. I cut out soda fully, because no matter what kind it is I can't be trusted to keep it a RARE treat.

I like the ginger root beer best, followed by cream soda.
That said, I am not drinking it now, as I have eliminated all artificial sweeteners.
I would drink it at a social event, if it were on the offer but not going to buy anymore for now. I have noticed the prices decreasing as more stores stock it and good sale prices.

AND the Zevia site is giving away $2 saving coupons! I just went back and bought 2 6 cases. 1 Dr Zevia and 1 Black Cherry.

I bought a case at a wholesale club, and I must say, I don't particularly enjoy their taste, but I will drink them.... and then not likely ever buy them again.

For those interested in Canada, (well, at least I know they are in Orleans Ontario) The Superstore has their Zevia on sale for 6 cans for 4.97. (Kind of pissed they didn't honor the $2 off coupon because the cans where not in a "case". Yet they would not SELL me a case.

I've only tried the cola, and ended up pouring them all down the drain. AWFUL. I am used to diet sodas but this didn't even taste sweet to me...it tasted salty. Weird. My mom tried it and said the same thing.

Zevia tastes odd and a bit too sweet on its own BUT I found that when I mix 2/3 part to 1/3 part, or even half/half zevia with an unsweetened soda (i.e. pelegrino or lemon calistoga) it's quite perfect for a less-toxic diet soda!
