The My Wingman® product is an idea inspired by the unmet needs of avid sports fans to display their passion for their team while providing support for their food and beverages.

I highly recommend the Khan Academy to anyone who has children. It’s an amazing learning resource.   Continue reading

Zevia Soda Review

Enjoy soda without worrying about counting calories or the amount of caffeine unless you prefer caffeine with a natural sweetener. Zevia is available in 12 flavors packaged in 12 oz. aluminum cans. 9 of the flavors are caffeine free, but for those of you like that like your caffeine, three of the flavors (Zevia Cola, Dr. Zevia and Mountain Zevia) contain caffeine naturally derived from coffee.

Jeff and I had a six pack of different flavors to sample. One each day over a 3 day period. Here are the results for each flavor:

Gingerale-Gingerale which is my favorite soda of choice. In comparison to other kinds of soda I must say I was surprised with Zevia. The taste was crisp and not too over powering like most Gingerale. Better served over ice or after refrigeration. I did miss the natural sweetness. Jeff was not a fan at all, but we did agree this would be one of the flavors we would purchase for our home again in the near future.

Ingredients: Carbonated water, Erythritol, Citric Acid, Reb A-Stevaia Extract, Carmel Color, Lemon and Lime Oil,Ginger Extract, Natural flavors

Lemon Lime Mist-We both enjoyed this flavor and will also add it this to our shopping list. Very tasty not too over-powering. Better served cold. Great choice for those who love soda, but prefer no caffeine.

Ingredients: Carbonated water, Erythritol, Citric Acid, Reb A-Stevaia Extract, Natural flavors

Black Cherry- Comparable to Cherry 7UP minus the strong sweetness. This a flavor you would have to try more than once. I am not a fan of dark soda, but this I would buy again for a second chance. Jeff decided he would pass on the chance to try because he doesn’t drink dark soda at all.

Ingredients:Carbonated water, Erythritol, Citric Acid, Reb A-Stevaia Extract, Natural flavors,

Cherry Essence, Cassia Oil, Clove Leaf Oil

Dr. Zevia- Just did not hit the spot for either if us. Not strong enough. Lacked taste and sweetness.

Ingedients: Caramel color, Tartaric acid, Fumaric Acid, Caffeine, Nutmeg Oil, Carbonated water, Erythritol, Citric Acid, Reb A-Stevaia Extract, Natural flavors

Rootbeer – A good alternative to A&W since it does not contain Aspartame. We both give it thumbs up. We do love our floats.

Ingredients: Caramel color, Wintergreen Oil, Anise Oil, Lemon Oil, Orange Oil, Ginger Extract, Carbonated water, Erythritol, Citric Acid, Reb A-Stevaia Extract, Natural flavors

Grape- We enjoyed the Grape! Thumbs up.

Ingredients: Carbonated water, Erythritol, Citric Acid, Reb A-Stevaia Extract, Natural flavors

Grape Juice Concentrated

Price Point $4.99 per 6 pack

Coupons available on the website!

What is Erythritol?

Erythritol is a natural component of fruits and vegetables. It is called a sugar alcohol, even though it is neither sugar nor alcohol. It is removed from fruits and vegetables through a natural fermentation process, much like that of yogurt. It has absolutely no calories and no effect on blood sugar.
