In my move to quit eating crap I can't pronounce, Diet Coke was on the "ax list." Instead of quitting cold turkey, I've tried to wean myself off over the course of the last six months. Granted, I should just be drinking WATER, but that's a whole other hydration battle for another post, but I have been searching for a carbonated replacement to my oldest fizzy friend...It's been a quest, actually.
Here are some of the passable "light" or "calorie-free" natural potions I've sampled thus far: Steaz (I know, the name kills me, too) has a product that is half green tea half carbonated fruit juice and is rather delicious. Zevia's Black Cherry is a great option, but their other flavors are yuk.
One horrible, and I mean dreck-in-a-can soda, is Blue Sky Free Soda. I still have four cans in my fridge...One was consumed by myself and the other unfortunate victim was our contractor, who tried valiantly to finish the battery acid to no avail.
But the BEST and most delicious soda I've tried and, of course the most expensive, is DRY Soda. It's not sugar-free soda, by any means, but it's not crazy sweet and the flavors are aromatic and unique. My favorite: Lemongrass, it's refreshing and has a bite to it, plus it's crazy fizzy...all a Diet Coke addict could want.
If you have any low sugar sodas you love, let me know!
