Dr. Zevia Cake Recipe and Zevia Review

Hello Everyone!

Today I have a review for Zevia a zero calorie soda that is full of flavor! Zevia was launched in 2007 with stevia sweetened Cola, Lemon Lime Twist and Orange soda. Six years later Zevia has 15 flavors to choose from. All of their drinks are sweetened with Stevia and is diabetic friendly, or if you are just wanting a flavorful alternative to the sugar packed sodas in the break room vending machine. I personally found Dr. Zevia was my favorite and definitely helped kick my craving for the sugar filled versions.
