Product Review: Zevia Black Cherry

Zevia Natural Diet Soda, Black Cherry, 12 Ounce Cans (Pack of 24)A Review from Sister M:
This was my first Zevia Soda so I can't yet compare it to the other flavors yet.  I popped the top on this chilled can of Natural Black Cherry while listening to Dan Fogelberg's "Somewhere Along the Road" while driving back from a great night visiting my daughter at college. I drank it straight from the can and it did not disappoint.

Since I'm new to the stevia plant, I was apprehensive about the aftertaste I experienced from the packets I've been using. But happily, there was NO aftertaste.  This soda was crisp and perfectly sweetened with a light cherry flavor with just a hint of clove and cinnamon.  The splash of citric acid made it taste like what you wished the zero calorie sparkling waters would taste.  It was not as sweet as the usual diet pop fare, which was a welcomed change.  The Black Cherry soda had a great tingly mouth feel from the can. I poured the second half over ice to see how it held up. It was a nice surprise to see no artifical coloring!  The flavor was still as crisp and clean. I could definitley taste the triple filtered water that Zevia uses for their sodas.

The only bad thing I can say is that until Zevia starts showing up on megamart shelves, be prepared to shell out some money for this treat.  I paid $1.17 for this can, but found it for $.60 later on that afternoon in a different Health Food store. Shop around! This can got 5 out of 5 stars from me. I look forward to tasting the rest of their flavors.

Zevia can be found at Whole Foods market, health food stores and Amazon.com. Zevia has an S/C value of 0/1. 

Review for Zevia Root Beer and all other product reviews on Me & Jorge here.


  1. I too just found the Zevia soda this weekend at my local health food store. I had a 15% off coupon so I loaded up, I bought the ginger root beer, black cherry and orange. So far I've only tried the root beer, and it's delicious. It doesn't have that heavy root beer taste, it's lighter tasting. I also bought the Barleans Omega Swirl and Ezekiel bread (gotta take advantage of that coupon...).

  2. I haven't foudn the soda yet and I'm just getting ready to begin my journey with Jorge and his book. I would definitley try the soda!
    WG on you fat loss so far!!

    I like the Ginger Ale -- I used to drink a diet coke a day, but cut that out and found that I only drink one of these like every 3 days. I can't seem to find them anywhere local here so I have to order them online.

    I'm just starting my Jorge journey. After reading the book, I immediately went to my local health store and bought one 6 pack since I was worried that I won't like it. I'm seriously addicted to regular diet soda so I was surprised how much I liked Zevia's Cola. I'm planning on going back and buying the Ginger Root Beer and Black Cherry. Most likely I'll try them all since I'm just discovering this soda and want to find my new favorite!

  5. I found Zevia at Fresh Market(in the refrigerated section sold singly) as well as Whole Foods. Hope this helps!
